Gloves for electronic parts / high voltage parts?
December 26, 2012
Dear fellow people,
Yesterday I tried to open up my ATX power supply and test everything if works, so I could transform it to a lab bench power supply. I knew that the two large 200v capacitors were dangerous to touch so I did my best not to touch them. But somewhere near the capacitors I touched gave me one hell of a shock that my eye view went to static view for a few seconds and I started to overheat and sweat, could not even talk normally. So.......... I want to buy some gloves I can use to handle these parts. I want gloves that fit well so I can handle parts easy, not like those thick rubber gloves.
What gloves are good for these parts?
But I do not know if they are good for handling like high voltages or even low voltages. They are made out of Vinyl. The tips of my fingers are not that good for holding smaller parts so I also need gloves that look like these:
I read these are good and not melting or conducting electricity.
So my main question is if someone haves experience with such gloves and which one are good?
