Roger that Lee!
While you guys are telling all these shocking stories, just today I
noticed my Heathkit bench DC supply was holding a charge quite a while
after turning the DC output off. So as to avoid zapping myself, I took
the precaution of putting a 47K 2watt on a couple of banana plugs and
pluged it across my clip leads to act as an extra bleeder. It wasn't
1/2 hour later when I went to flip the metal toggle switch off with one
finger that I let my wrist contact the short exposed resistor lead. Got
I think I need to come up with something a little better, you've heard
about how the cure is sometimes worse than the disease?
