    I've never used one either. Touch something metal that is ground first and you will "de-charge" yourself.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    I have replaced about 50 screens, reflowed parts of the motherboard, and soldered the insides back together on a wooden table with newspaper on it. I DO use a good set of Gloves, but no special straps, cables, chains, or whips

    OK, you buy the wrist strap, and the grounding cable, but what are you going to ground it to. Are you going to set up a table dedicated to this, or just a mat? Understand that a mat is effective, but do you really need it?
    Just thinking out loud for you. Not being a jerk, just showing you what is connected to the strap.
