Re: [TCML] pole pig question ###
I've been bit a couple of times by unconnected secondaries during
thunderstorms. A close strike can sometimes resonate the coil, and give you
a jolt. Also, static can build up on the secondary insulation, and can give
a healthy jolt. After I disconnect power, I place my hand on the toroid and
wipe the secondary down with the other hand. You would be surprized at the
amount of static that can build up sometimes.

I understand why a disconnected cap system can still bite you, but the
unconnected secondary sitting on the workbench or the secondary coil which
has been disconnected from the system for several seconds and in transit
to the work bench still has the ability to leave your leg totally useless
has got me wondering...
