Hello guys,

I haven't been here for quite a while. To be honest, I couldn't even remember my username so I took a new account.

I'm from Germany, and in a german forum we had this video posted. I hope it's ok to post it here.

My Question is, does anyone here know the story to it, as we couldn't find out. Also, if this installation was running on domestic or high voltage.

thanks a lot,
andy

Joe Tedesco posted that here a while back. It's in the safety forum. Scary stuff.

Hi Andy, and welcome back.

I posted this video here a few weeks ago, and the following is the discussion thread where we threw around ideas about what exactly happened there...
