1 RichB555 9 months ago I hear it all the time about how electrical shock can kill, and I know it's true and can happen. But if you're careful to check if the unit is plugged in, understand grounding, and know how to discharge caps, should I still shy away from doing cap jobs and building an amp from a kit? I love the idea of doing this work myself. I have an uncle who used to work on TVs as a hobby, and he's 88 and still talks about how much pleasure he got from that. Although I value all opinions, I'd especially like to hear from Don the Toneman on the subject.
