There are of course a bunch on ebay but they're all an hour+ drive away. Freecycle is a good shout, I'd forgotten about it, thanks.
I've already got a huge Sony PVM for retro games as >>26182 guessed, but I need to get rid of it for space and because it's apparently now worth ~£250. I can make do with a little old TV instead. I just don't want to pay stupid prices for one when they used to go for free, god knows how many I've passed up over the years.
I'm not that fussed about how good the display is. That said, I'm expecting to have to go through a few to get one with halfway decent convergence and geometry, but it's surprising how well many CRTs have lasted, given the astonishing engineering precision required of them, and I have fixed CRT monitors in the past so I can take a crack at adjustments depending on the design. (To preempt the warnings: I do know how to do so without grabbing the flyback, discharging one of the capacitors and electrocuting myself, or snapping the neck and having a vacuum tube explode in my face.)
