I've been bit by 110 more than I can count.

I've worked with 220, 208, 277, 460, 480, and 600v equipment, and thankfully never been bit by any of those.

It's not the voltage that kills you, but the amps...

At 1-4.3 amps "rhythmic pumping of the heart ceases, and death is likely". Although unlikely, humans have died from shocks with as little as 42 volts. Avoid situations where the current could flow from your one hand to your other, grounded hand, since your heart is in between. Better to get 'zapped' from your hand through your body and out your leg!

How many volts, hence amps, will cause @dadsbee 's hair to tightly curl up like that ???

Doing something stupid did that hand to hand 110v. Knew I dodged the big one.

Not sure if I posted this here or not, but here is a picture of the Harlow Tire Daytona. Everybody in my area knew about this car, it sat in front of the tire store for decades. I hear it’s now been sold and maybe getting restored, but the gear heads in my area will always love it just like you see here.

A 66 Hemi coronet body with no M/T that I bought for $500 in 1983 and flipped for $900!
Was at one time a drag car where could see the name Red Baron on doors.
