wide-angle picture tubes having deflection angles
approaching 90° and having an extremely short neck por
10 tion, it has become difficult to satisfy these requirements.
The invention is directed to a method of manufacturing
electron-beam deflection yokes utilized -to effect lateral
motion of beams of electrons or similar electr-ical particles
and is particularly directed to a method of manufacturing
magnetic deflection yokes of this type. These yokes are
particularly useful for dellecting «the electron beams in
cathode-ray Ytubes of the types conventionally employed
in Oscilloscopes, target indicators, and most commonly
used in television receivers. To a large degree the strin 20

It has been conventional to utilize “saddle” yokes, so
called because of the “saddle”-like configuration of each
of the four coils which combine to form the yoke. Be
cause of the complex configuration of these coils, “saddle”
yokes require complex winding apparatus which indi
vidually winds each of the’four coils and which, in spite
of its complexity, fails to maintaina uniform or any other
desired spatial relationship to the turns in each coil or
to wind coils which are consistently the same. After the
