Michael,

(taking a sip of coffee with visibly shaking hands) that advice would have
been slightly more useful last fall, when I was actively poking around the HV
section of a 475A.

Jeff,

Thankfully, those voltages are typically well insulated and hidden from view for the most part. But the CRT can get dirty and leak anode voltage where it should not go. The CRT can store considerable voltage, as you know. But the bottom line is, that HV multiplier can deliver a nasty shock under the right circumstances. It pays to be very careful with these HV sources. .
