Odd problem getting shocked

I’m media blasting a '73 Bronco and I keep getting shocked every time I touch the thing. It’s getting pretty annoying. It is a pretty strong shock otherwise I would just ignore it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Could I ground it somehow?

attach something to the frame and the ground?

i get shocked when i touch anything.

do I have a bad ground

dawns fat acts as its own ground to herself, creating constant shocking

i thought it was the rolls creating static…

damn, how could i have forgot :frowning:

what media are you using to blast?

And yeah, ground it

Best bet, grind part of frame down to clean metal, take a jumper cable, attach to grounded object, or if not available, pound a steak or small pipe into ground and clamp the other end of the jumper cable onto it…

Grounding strap would probably would good in this situation.

its gonna happen no matter what you do, i work at a dealership and everytime i get is or move a car i get shocked. you will notice it more on real dry days. dont waste your time with a ground strap, wont work.

try a metal thumb tack in your shoe. if it is getting bad.

stupid electrons will get you every time

the media generates a lot of static. I used to get popped all the time, right through gloves, shoes, ect. Hurt like a mother sometimes.

Try getting a wrist strap ground (from computer store) and hook that up to the piece you are blasting.

I’m blasting with Carbojet15.
I ended up wedging a bolt on either side of one of the wheels and attaching a pair of jumper cables and it seems to have worked.
