I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Good one, Rick!
Lightning is natural. 😄
I haven't researched the deaths, but I will assume each one was because it was still plugged in when they made contact with the juice.
Need to find a failsafe way to unplug the unit, not simply turn off the power with a pretty switch before you are allowed access to the hot stuff.
That and to be sure the electrodes cannot fall onto the floor or contact anything but the workpiece.
I a sure there is a ton of safety measures on the net beyond my ramblings.

I believe I read that the incidents involved accidentally touching the electrode . I did that in high school and got the shock of my life one time

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

I've since read about deaths caused by this. And there are quite a few. I never have had any interest in the "designs" these things created, so never had any interest in them from the first. Read about 2 daughters came home from school, discovered their dad dead in the garage from one of these things. Not for me.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
