Anything using wire windings will work. Soldering GUNS (not irons), drills, and other motors will work to an extent. Severe magnetism will need the proper coil.

if you need a coil find a shadowed pole motor. (the kind used in exhaust fans) and take the coil off it. thats what i use.

NOTE: do not use direct current coils, they will only make the magnetism worse, you need an AC coil.

The way to demagnetize the TV is with a coil. You said you wanted to find something around the house. Do you have an extention cord that is maybe 50ft or more. Coil it up in a tight circle with a diameter of no more that
10 inches. Wrap tape around it to secure. Leave about 6 ft so you can plug it in. Then slowly move it around the picture very close to the tube and then in a constant circular motion bring it away from the tube.

demagnatizing tv?

You should not have to do this,as all new tv's and computer monitors do this when you turn them on.
If you have a color problem,try turning the set on,then off a few times.
If that don't work,you'r set needs more in-depth service.

Good luck.

zigzag's suggestion of using a coil of extension cord would need to have a high current device, like a 1500 watt heater plugged in to allow the current flow to create a flux.
