One word, VFD. Rectified high current mains is scary shit. FWIW, I have have touched the DC side of a switched mode PSU and it really fucken hurts. I did most of my time on the bench repairing equipment.

Gaah, IT??? What the hell are you thinking . I did the electrical/electronics to elec eng thing and just somehow morphed into software. Transitioned from programming embedded stuff to c++. I am over it and want to go back onto the tools again. I sit in front of a computer writing code all day every day and I hate it.
