Lapping processor (how do I carry it around?)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm about to lap my processor but the new place I moved into is alllll carpet. Nice carpet... but it's carpet. I literally have to touch every doorknob with my key so I won't get shocked. My question the the awesome OCN, what's a good way to transfer my cpu over to another place? I was thinking of wrapping it in paper and putting it in a cigarette box? In a rubber glove? rofl.... dunno

LOL ;x

I don't think all of that is needed, my house is fully carpeted and I handle my components alot... Unless you roll around on floor whilst rubbing yourself with balloons I don't think you have anything to worry about, just make sure you touch something metal before handling it and you hould be fine..

Yea, just try not to hold the pins. Handle it with the PCB.

lol, here's the trick with carpet. go barefoot. If you're barefoot you've not going to build up enough of an isolated charge that it can actually "ground" itself back out in the form of that wickedly strong blue-arc.

Additionally, in a house like the one you've described, having a couple vases of water in the house to raise the ambient RH% (and if you keep fresh flowers in those vases of water it will also raise your faction with the local females) which will help eliminate the unpleasantness you're experiencing when you touch doorknobs.

But seriously, when I work with my components I just take off my shoes, lol...

You don't have to be that careful. If anything just go barefoot or wear an anti-static wristband.

Oh.. I thought rubber shoes or flip flops helped prevent conducting static? Or I could just lap the cpu under water...

No, for the same reason you don't clean your computer parts with your dishes.

Not easy. Trust me.

You could try using the plastic case that came with your CPU but even then, there's a risk of bending pins
