Well I was playing around with a piece of junk iMac G3. I was just harvesting everything that could be used again like the hd and cd rom drive. While it was open I said what the hell and opened all of it up taking off everything exposing the CRT. I was wondering if this was dangerous? I was on wikipedia.org and it showed all the health hazards and stuff of a CRT monitor. It wasn't on while I had it open, but I was wondering if that metal piece was put there to keep me the consumer from getting in there because of the dangers.
