ALWAYS BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR TOOLS!

That was amusing.

some_beer_drinker: ALWAYS BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR TOOLS!


Agreed. I recommend having someone else discharge your tools for you, thus preventing any injury to yourself.

I shocked myself once. I was calibrating audio equipment using a really sketchy ground connection (we didn't have the proper audio-to-BNC connector). I was supposed to apply 744 mV and the stupid mV button was right next to the V button.

It didn't hurt that much.

That was great. kinda the "red green" of electronics.

Setup but I still laughed. Very funny.

As someone who almost took 115/400 to his hands yesterday due to a coworker being a retard and not killing a breaker, I find this amusing.

Crank one of these while touching the terminals.

We used to charge up capacitors and throw them at each other.

It's the current that makes something hurt. If a device isn't capable of putting out enough current then it won't hurt as much.

Always do the needful before discharging el-lectricity to grounding.

Ditto. It was amazing how many guys wouldn't learn and still try to catch anything tossed to them.

"I'm not Steve! Wrong number!"

This is a schtick he's doing. He has a set of videos on Youtube along the same lines:

ESD

Capacitors 1

Capacitors 2

Wiring

Though, back to the subject at hand, ESD is usually why I touch things with the back of my hand first when I suspect ESD would happen. Less painful.

Messed around with a tv as a kid.. learned vividly (and messily) that you should ALWAYS discharge the CRT anode before disconnecting the HV lead-in line.. I think it was a 20" b/w set.. all tube.. pre SS.. and no pc board.. hand wired....  we used Sam,s Photofact schematics.. had to learn how to use a 'scope...  'bout 12 years old.. good times !

That is basically me, all winter long.

I love my winter jacket in every way except the amount of static it builds up.

One of my earliest, most vivid memories was sticking a hairpin into an outlet. I didn't go near another outlet for the next five years. Even today, any repair job involving electrical wiring means I call in an expert.

Hahahaha, I got that same intro from an Amiga monitor that'd been sitting on a shelf for a few weeks. I thought it'd have discharged by then but oh no, oh no.

I was in the Canadian Forces (Reserves) for a year back when I was 17. One of the pieces of gear they had us train with was on hand-cranked field telephones. So one joker zapped me to the back of the neck with the charge from a phone (it was a two person job - one cranked, the other applied the wires) .

It was several seconds of complete loss of body control...really freaky.

/I was pissed but only now in retrospect to I realize how incredibly dangerous that stunt might have been

Yep... Still have mine from when I worked at the neon shop.

Good for... Well .. all sorts of things.

/Stop looking at me like that.

There was this one time when I was nine I was adjusting the sweep of the EEG/EKG and what was actually happening is the sweep board was failing to discharge on shutdown when using the battery pack...

I woke up with a broken nose.

ALWAYS discharge high voltage circuits before working on them.... knocked myself out in reflex.

I hate when my cats play on the couch then touches me and I jump and curse at them. Little assholes.
