Interesting and nice video, but I notice that Roy has the confidence, after many years of experience, to work two-handed on a live chassis. For those of us who are less experienced, or have less dexterity, this is potentially lethal.
If you have to work on a live chassis, always keep one hand in your pocket - and make sure your feet are insulated by rubber/plastic soles (no bare feet) - then if you do get a shock it would not be across the heart.

Yes, people noticed that in the video commentary too. The footage has interesting info and views on servicing and restoration priorities and parts that matter but never copy such handling style for things electrically hazardous.

Also a hobbyist has the free of charge time luxury to check all valves for life expectancy, ESR of non yet popped lytics, to tear the thing apart and bathe every pot and connector in ultrasonic even.
The expert pro has a cost approach while he knows what is likely to go bad soon or not in every popular model in any visual state and works on now and imminent issues unless asked to renew extensively and to charge accordingly.

BTW Roy needs to check out a JBC station iron also.
