I made a shorting stick from a piece of phenolic rod (heavy wooden dowel rod
also works), a piece of threaded rod bent into a J shape, and some high
voltage wire soldered to the rod on one end and bolted securely to the
chassis or cabinet at the other. Another bolt provides a convenient place
for hanging the shorting stick when it is not being used.
