A long shot I know - but a fire destroyed the plastics, the monitor itself is still working
I have a monochrome monitor that isn't working and has been in for repair with an old school CRT man for about the last 8 months! Apparently the 12v is missing and/or something else isn't right with the voltages for the tube. I found a schematic for him that is a copy of a copy of a 1980s fax - not great quality and hard to follow.
So between us at least a complete and working monitor would exist again. I will at some stage go and visit it and if it's terminal I'll have to decide what to do. I like the idea of having an original working monitor but I do already have the scart solution and CRTs take up so much space.
