harrysin Perhaps a double wound isolation transformer would have prevented this tragedy.

Knothead47 Sad story. I was in a gift shop last Friday and there were several pieces by a local person who made several items, advertised as the Lichtenberg process. I cringed and almost said something to the store owner.

Nickp Very sad to hear...just can't imagine what the kids felt when they found their father...

Dejure Holy cow, I find it difficult to believe people are that ignorant, but....

That's like saying the knife I stick in an outlet will act like the nichrome wire so all the electric turning it red hot [as the current through it into me] dissipates the dangerous electrons leaving only the good ones so.....

David Bradford I do all the electrical work around our shop but I would want no part in that process.

Dejure The main wood turning association banned anything tied to it in their shows, and for good reason.

Some guys brought their beast to a meeting and gave a demo. Having worked both electrical (PSNS, shop 51, electricians) and electronics (Keyport & Bangor, Wash.), it scared the hell out of me. These boys took a lot for granted. My shop has 1" thick rubber mats and I'd have second thoughts with most the systems I've seen. "Maybe" with a 5 foot glass pole. They were doing it on concrete floors and no mats.

kp91 Mostly true. The electrical signals that regulate the heart are quite small, and can be disrupted bu a relatively weak current. Also important is the path the current takes through the body. Worst case is a path directly across the heart.

Higher voltage can increase the likelihood for that current to flow across a given resistance.

jj777746 Well there ya go,It's the amps that kill,not the volts.True or false? James jj777746.
