    Must be like the people who feel they have to tweet, even if it is just to say they are going to Starbucks for a coffee.

    I have not had any problem with electric here lately.

    I did build a new Light Bulb testing jig this week.

    It is just a Lightbulb socket series wired into the hot side of a 2 Wire extension cord.

    Works like a charm for testing, and before applying full power.

    Nice Lightbulbs are getting harder to get. But the Socket will also let you use a Old School Fuse if you can find them. Or you can use a screw-in adapter to series a external Fuse, Lamp or load.

    I can Post pictures. lol


    Have Fun playing with electricity, and be safe doing it.

    I'm still trying to remember the details on that magnetics-based low-voltage switching I encountered once.

    quote; It is just a Lightbulb socket series wired into the hot side of a 2 Wire extension cord.

    And I assume it only works when you have something connected to the end of the extension cord.

    That is correct. That is the DUT Port. Device Under Test.


    They are safe if you play with them properly.

    Also have a place to clamp on a AC amp meter.


    JW would Love this design.
