No Red - This was in the mountains surrounding SoCal.
My father had an Aluminium bodied Craftsman drill. I was about 6 and asked him what the hanging green wire was on the cheater. He told me not to worry about it. We both had a shock when I pushed it in across the live pin. He was also on an Aluminium ladder at the time.
A Neutrik beats a cheater. A double isolated tool beats an alloy bodied tool. Australia uses a lot of GFI which they call RCD breakers, and testing with a GFI type of power strip and gloves is never a bad idea.
Yeah, those are some of the reasons that I put a lot of time into making my electrical stuff as solid/safe as possible. Hell, I even use marine grade sealing heat shrink to keep any moisture out...and even the plugs I use are sealed. I figure, if it can't take some accidental rain, I didn't do it right.
Seek advice from an electrical expert prior to modifying anything electrical in nature.
lincoln et. al. (others in Au), I spoke to the local "Test & Tag" fellow yesterday.
6$/tool to 'test and tag'. It may be double with the Nuetrik on it, or 3 Neutrik wall ends and 4 tools. = $42. If they did not have Aussy plugs on them, then it is another $10 for him to install it.
After that the tool are stamped fully compliant and can be used on any job-site (which I do not require), but it seemed pretty relevant. And being compliant get one past all legal complexity associated with the OSHA/Work-Safe/Insurance.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

alvychippy: It's the board hosts, that are having an idea, of somebody perhaps paying over the odds to acquire the board to administer it.... Obviously hopes are set high, Mafell isn't interested, so it carries on
