I have a large steel welding table that I have been using as a work station to solder together my own custom PCBs.
I have been using my anti-electrostatic discharge grounding bracelet and connecting the alligator clip on the lead coming from it to my welding table. I also have my MIG and TIG welders plugged into the wall but turned off, with the ground cables clamped to the welding table.
Am I right to assume that I am electrically effectively connecting my wrist to the ground of the circuit breaker panel in my workshop?
Any thoughts on this technique in general as a way to control ESD?
Any electrical schematics of a typical TIG or MIG welder, showing the grounding clamp connections?
