How do I safely remove the Platinum from an old console TV picture tube? It is a Zenith but I'm sure that doesn't matter. Please advise...I have been trying to figure this out for months! Thanks.

Doubt there's enough platinum in a picture tube to make it worth while to extract. I believe it's just used as a thin coating on some electrodes.
