I'm slowly finishing a nichrome wire plastic bender. One source of information, the Jacobs website, pointed out the need for grounding as a safety measure. Fine. I want to ground the circuit, but the diagram supplied on the Jacobs site shows the ground wire starting at the middle of the nichrome wire itself, smack between the positive and negative poles. My proposed solution is to wrap or clamp the ground wire, sheathed in high-temperature insulation, at mid-nichrome, with some built-in slack, and run it back to the ground prong on the three-prong plug. I've also designed in a fuse and fuse holder for the power wiring. Can anyone in the forum tell me if that is likely-or unlikely-to serve the purpose of grounding the circuit? Am I missing something?
