Vintage electrical/electronic equipment may use or produce dangerous high voltages and may contain components running at hazardous temperatures. Great care must always be taken when working on such equipment, especially when it is powered and shortly after it has been powered. Messages in this forum may discuss carrying out tests on live equipment, but do not give specific safety warnings. The absence of such warnings does NOT imply that the action is safe. Warnings have simply been omitted to avoid repetition and to keep the meaning of the description concise. Live equipment is always dangerous. If you are in any way unsure about your ability to work with vintage electrical/electronic equipment safely, please refer the work to a qualified and experienced engineer.
