Gotcha, having a real CRT & open cart surgeon comment on this actually helps with my concerns.
I’ll still baby the monitors, but not with quite as much worry. To protect the glass, I’ll use a bunch of bubble wrap and a blanket or two, then a box with some packing peanuts/extra cardboard to cushion everything.
Transporting and installing everything is so insane. This is my first major move since I got deep into the retro scene, purchased CRTs, and got all my shelves installed/mounted. Moving was not something I foresaw happening for much longer, but work and family considerations came up that I could not avoid.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to settle down somewhere more permanently after the two years are up and only have to go through this one more time for the long haul. COVID-19 made me realize that I really want to leave the city life behind and settle into something a bit more spacious in a more nature-like neighborhood.
