Open filament on CRT

Marvin Moss

*I wonder if anyone has tried a large capacitor and high voltage to weld an open filament in a CRT?*
*And how did it work out?  Supposedly a cap with 2 or 3 hundred mfd and a high voltage to create an arc in the open filament will create a bridge in the filament and will make it conduct and form a new place where the filament can come back to life in the CRT.  Your thoughts on this??
