Safety Upgrade

20 02 2011

As readers have pointed out, it’s time to put a lid on the power supply. Took care of that today:

I also added a fuse for the AC side:

Added a chassis ground for all surfaces:

Insulated this diode which could have shorted the bus bars:

Added a permanent voltage meter (steampunk):

Permanently attached bleed resistors to slowly drain the capacitor bank by default.

That’s better.

We do want you to stay alive.

I’ve been watching a 1950s film called “The Man in the White Coat”, about a man who invents an indestructible textile. The laboratory scenes are fascinating.

Definitely worth watching. Funny.
