When a component is too hot to touch, at what temperature is that in Fahrenheit or Celsius?

Just fly!

that might depend on your fingers,I have been playing guitar for 27 years.I have callousus on my fingers that allow me to touch stuff that would burn the $#%# out of some people.certain components have specific temps.batteries should not go over 140deg.

In the world of safety it is somewhere around 140 degrees F that causes damage to human skin after a few seconds.

I ran across this info also in C.

Tissue damage occurs at temperatures of 50 to 60 degrees Centigrade. (122/140deg F)

I was playing with a heatgun I found at work on power resistors acting as test loads for solar panels. I think it was at 60C you can only hold your finger on for about 2 seconds before you have to let go.

+ 1 to that, A cup of coffee when poured is about 65 degrees, which is very uncomfortable to hold for more than a second or so.

Good luck

I did some experimenting on this years ago and I recall that you CAN hold onto 130degF for awhile.

So, my tests agree with the posts above that 140 is too hot after a few seconds.

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

Get a temp gun get something hot and temp it. As stated above peoples tolerance vary greatly you might only be able to hold 120f and other 140f
