I use my ideal solenoid tester to check for voltage on a conductive surface.

Place your thumb on the end of one of the test leads and the other lead on the conductive surface. The tester will make noise if voltage is present.

...and the idea is to mitigate those dangers as they apply to you will working.

You realize that using the tester as you described is a recipe for a pine box.
A child, pet or co-worker making contact with you and a grounded surface like a refrigerator or stove might leave a body on the floor.
I appreciate your concern , but let's use that logic in another scenario.
What are my chances of coming in contact with an energized gas or copper water line when crawling under a house?
What are my chances of being in the cross fire of a drive by when working in the hood?

I can come up with many circumstances where I can be killed.

With that way of logic I might as well stay strapped to my sofa.

You are...and you are still defending your work practices.


You posted a good way to get someone/thing hurt - and that is all.

That is not how a professional works.



?

...If you don't give a rat's ass about yourself - fine.
What about the person or pet that comes in contact with you?
Their family?
YOURS???


I've always been brutally honest with you - I'm not about to stop.

Gimme your address, I'll mail you one.
I'm not sorry if you take offense....you need it.
I will dissect you're response when I am not posting from my phone.

And I do not take any offence from your replies because they are constructive and not destructive .
