At a former place of employment a Hubbellock® plug & connector (480V) was set near a MAX disc sander, most of the material used there was aluminum, I missed the resulting fireworks.

A bit semi-related.
I just watched a you-tube (that I did not save) on how to fix tool chargers by using "wall warts"
You may want to do a you-tube search

A tiny bit OT but safety-related. At a shipyard I was working at I got hit in the forehead with a small chunk of Al. Drew blood and everything. It was kicked up from someone cutting a hole in the side of the Al-hulled boat with a circular saw to replace the bottom of the fuel tank. (yes, that is how it is done! ) He was easily 40'-50' away! I was lucky as I did not have safety glasses on because that would have been a trip to the eye doctor. From that point on, I always wear glasses or shield if someone is grinding/cutting within earshot...
