whoever is posting that misinformation is putting people's lives at risk!. you still have 120 volts at a high current on the hot leg of the appliance, that is NOT converted or used!.. make a good enough connection to that, and ground or the neutral, and you can be killed!. https://www.asc.ohio-state.edu/physi...l_current.html what they should have mentioned is that High Voltage at a high current is more dangerous, because I=E/R which is the current equals the voltage divided by the resistance, so the more voltage, the more current can flow with a set resistance!. something like a microwave transformer can supply 1 amp, way more than enough to kill you!..

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.

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.

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

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.....

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.

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