Re: CRT book by Keller

The Coketron actually has no components inside the Coke bottle. It takes what I believe is a 1EP1, sans screen, and mates it to a Coke bottle. It actually has deflection plates (at least, that’s what I recall from visiting Vintagetek, where they have one on display), so it has all the guts of an electrostatically deflected scope crt.

I never saw one light up, though.

That's what I figured. The neck of a Coke bottle is pretty narrow to get much of a mechanism through.
