I did this a couple weeks ago. That was the only time in my life that I ever wished Ben Franklin didn't invent the stuff.

I too have done this, it hurts. I've been zapped by a 220 plug as well....that REALLY hurts. I had to sit down for a while after that one.


I took Electrical shop in high school, been zapped like that more times than I can rememberrrrrrrr.

Yikes! Once was enough for me...it suckzzzzzzzzzz! :-b

Also that same brick saw I mentioned would give minor zaps if you were cutting brick in the rain(I know, no kidding). It actually felt like a a volt does on your tongue but through your hands, so not bad enough to make you jump but just weird and uncomfortable. You could feel it through your gloves even. :-b

that had to suck...at least it wasnt 440 :-b

It was pretty crappy, I still remember it vividly. We were finishing up a brick job and I was packing up the tools, our big brick table saw ran on 220, I went to unplug it from the dryer outlet and ZAP! I literally felt ill afterward. :-t

Where would I get zapped by 440? So I can be sure to avoid going near it. :-o


i believe 440 is what they use to run large industrial machinery
