At voltages that can stop your heart, no one is being a baby.

What do you plan to achieve with this?? And try 20,000 volts.

Most tubes made after 1990 do tend to self discharge but you should ALWAYS manually discharge the CRT JUST IN CASE (with it turned off) by using a rubber handled screwdriver attached to a croc clip cable, attached to the metal braid on the outside of the tube (ground). If you then touch the second anode (the bit under the cap) with the screwdriver you will discharge any residual power. Just make sure you keep one hand in your pocket so you are not touching ground/the metal frame by accident. You might need to do this a couple of times if you hear a "snap".

That hole does NOT enter the tube itself. The tube is completely sealed, it's just thin enough that the voltage can conduct to the inside of the tube at that point.

Regardless, italie is right, if it's new he should get his money back.
