eduKayt's Tip of the Day 7/6/10: High Voltage
The day after a long weekend always blows... but what's even fucking worse is when you electrocute yourself! Continuing on with eduKayt's Essential Tools List is the voltage tester. We do a lot of shit that's electrical. After you turn the power off at the circuit breaker, it's always good to be a little ocd and make sure there is no voltage running through your outlet or wire that you're working on. All you do is take both red and black ends of the tester and put it up to the outlet or wire. If the meter lights up and gives a reading, that shit is still live!!! Abort mission and check circuit breaker again!
Consider yourself eduKayted.
