it is a miracle i put my machine together without frying anything
i found a belkin wrist band on amazon.co.uk
what/where do you guys recommend i clip the wrist band to?
Sorry, I don't have any brand loyalty. They all work the same, pretty much.
I bought a cheap one from Staples that works just fine.. my only complaint is that it doesn't extend as far as I want to sometimes.
Also remember that humidity decreases static electricity.. the drier the air where you air, the more likliehood for static.
You just clip the thing to any metal part of the case.. or anything in your house that's grounded, really. The point is that electricity follows the path of least resistance. As long you're attached to a grounded object.. all static electricity will flow out of you via that object, and won't have a chance to build up.
