 I have been following these comments.  forget about interlocks, shielding 
and everything else. simply use a  so called chicken stick on everything 
that could possible be hot, IE everything other than the cabinet and chassis 
assuming they are well grounded, if not5 do not evfen turn them on.  . I 
have a piece of insulated stranded #16 bolted directly the cabinet of my 
Gates BC1G, after it is shut down and unplugged I touch everything that has 
any significient voltage.   Interlocks, I have a bunch of them, they are in 
a box, first thing I disconnected.  it would be best to use a plastic rod to 
hold the wire so you could be several inches from the big splat when you hit 
something hot.  Bernie W8RPW
