Probably nothing new to some of you, but here's some good tips all rolled into one video.<br /> <br /> <br />

I like his explanation of heart valve operation and lock-up.<br /> <br /> A good primer for newby's and always a good reminder for old heads as well. <br /> <br /> Done in a personable way.

Always good to review the safety procedures. Thanks for the vid.<br /> <br /> Working on the amp while "hot" is a completely different set of rules. <br /> <br /> Here is one that often gets overlooked: Remove your wrist watch and any rings when working on a "hot" operating amp. A conductive watch or band or ring can literally weld your wrist or finger to voltage inside the chassis! Your jewelry also gets very hot when this happens......

"...can u lock it at the top of the thread?"<br /> <br /> Good idea. Very simply stated with excellent emphasis on appropriate details. Good job. He's got me convinced!<br />

Very good video. I always knew you stand a chance of stopping your heart with a high voltage shock going in one arm, thru the heart and out the other arm but the thing I did not know was why it happened sometimes but not others. This was a real eye opener. Thanks for posting this video

".can u lock it at the top of the thread?"<br /> <br /> <br /> sometimes us old guys need a reminder.... young un's too!!<br /> <br /> Every day I have to open up an electrical panel and have to remind myself not to touch... one hand in pocket or behind back!!

Thanks Pinetree!<br /> <br /> I've seen a number of videos trying to explain this procedure.<br /> This one is absolutely the best! :)<br />
