Talking Too awesome for words

Probably this is a repost, but then it's worth reposting:

Thanks to the poster and to the creator. That was really facinating!

In my late teens (many years ago) when there was mostly B&W telly, I would work in the evenings in a TV repair shop. In the basement we used to re-gun CRT's. Several of the processes were similar to those in this great video, including:
Joining glass extensions
Cleaning of electrode assy - though I remember using toluene
Heating electrode assy during pumping - to remove gasses
Heated Pinch-off after pumping

Did I miss him firing a getter? Did it have one?

Also, I didn't undertand the last appliction, with the violet ionisation ring within. Does anyone know what was happening/what it was?

I didn't see any getter either...I don't think he used one.
The purple in the end,I'm thinking might have been a mercury vapor (or similar?) rectifier.



Wayyyyy cool!!
