Not a bad way to strip conductor insulation ..... i should concoct that, the smoke is legal since there is no fire.

If I heard the vid right he is stepping 380 volts down to 42 volts but with a much higher current (several hundred amps)

I will re-watch the vid.

Basically he is turning the wire into the load, the same thing that would happen with a utility set up involving a short circuit and no breaker, though current here is a tad lower.

Was that a GE breaker? :whistling2:
I believe the man in the video is from New Zealand.
I cant make up my mind if it was Kiwi or Australian, I was leaning towards Aussie due to the strip connectors he was using. He isnt a native born though I dont think from his accent.
