OK somebody just thru out a CRT TV and the onle thing they did is cut the power cord. Since they thru it out I took the TV and want to see if I can solder a few copper wires onto it and plug it into the wall and watch TV. Is it possible to solder a few copper wires onto the cut end of the cord. I also need to know if I can get a power 3 or 2 plug that plugs into the wall. I don't know what they are called just power connector. Is their any local shop such as a radio shack that would sell just the plug part of the power cord of a TV. And would 22 gauge wire be OK to use. It is rated at 300 volts. The power from the house comes in at 120 volt approx. USA It is insultated wire but I don't know how insulated it has to be I have electric tape. If this is all possible I just want to make sure I am safe when it comes to electricity.
