    Is there any thing tht could be molded as a hand glove which has HV insulation.

    Like to know where I can buy such stuff.
    I want to make hand gloves for my hand and it needs to be tough but flexible and resists or insulates voltages above 80KV. :D

    80KV!!! :eek: What are you doing?

    @ maxpower97 - I wouldn't trust your solution to those high of voltage levels. Maybe under 2KV.. :)

    I presume that's 80kV at very low currents?

    Industrial safety gloves only go to about 36kV so good luck on that one! ;)

    Are you still suicidal? If so, this will work.

    How about buying three pairs, one medium, one large and one extra large? Does squeezing into all three give you 108kV and the loss of the use of your hands? :D

    Hey as I said I'm no expert but if your trying to make gloves that would be a decent option. Since not being familiar with HV I was unaware he was basically asking how to make his honda civic do 600mph. :)

    At that power what about arcing? Would that be an issue? We see all those videos of the pro plant workers getting killed cause of them.

    When i was working as a HV linesman you didnot use insulated gloves to direrctly handle those sorts of voltages. We used 10Ft long Insulated poles at those sort of voltages at 50Hz. If its RF I wouldnt go near it. These sort of voltages dont usualy give you a second chance. Stay safe R!f@@.

    God! I got u guys good this time. :D

    U guys are so unbelievable. How long have I been here and don't u still know anything about Maldives.

    I am afraid to ask around as our two itchy Mods,. Geo & Bill will be watching, and grinning," say something so I can lock up another thread". :p

    So I go around beating the bush. But I will give u a clue.

    Politics, Riot gear, taser batter and police and civil clashes plus high freaking voltage...! Get me..? :D

    Have you ever seen black widow of Avengers ?

    That was my idea all alone. :(

    That thread about an EMP, and if you couldn't have an EMP, you'd settle for a brick of C4.

    Now you want to get your hands on 80,000 volts that is being delivered by a guy with a gun. Still sounds suicidal!

    Just remember ... the a$$ you save maybe your own. Safety first.

    Get yourself a good insulating glove ... and inspect it at regular intervals for defects (holes).

    Good idea but don't you pass out when your body can't sweat or get air? Wasn't that a problem on goldfinger filming. I know they started to test in on mythbusters but by the time they covered half his body he started having medical issues and had to back out.

    At least it will keep the rain out, I think. But if you have any experience with such cloths feel free to share. Why are you so concern about my fishing:confused:
