Mr. Pinball Tip:

Grounding yourself when working on solid state machines is a good idea because of the possibility of static charge damaging solid state components. But be careful--grounding yourself improperly can be fatal! If you are grounded and hit a high voltage it could kill you! The best way to ground yourself is by a grounding wrist strap. The wrist straps have sufficient resistance, such as a 1 Meg ohm resistor, that you will not electrocute yourself accidentally while working on a pinball machine.
