Might be a bit hard to explain - so if you have/know this unit perhaps can talk 
off line?  I am rewiring the ON/OFF switch so the 220VAC doesn't go through the 
switch. Using an AC relay (output/control side) - to Switch/connect the power 
lines previously mounted to the ON/OFF switch. Then the ON/OFF switch is now 
used to 'turn on' the relay - power to the relay - comes from the Filament 
circuit via the ON/OFF switch to one side of the input/control on the AC relay 
- and the other terminal on the input of the AC relay is then 
grounded.Something just doesn't 'feel right' in having the one side 'grounded' 
- and asking/wondering if a problem. Another thought is ? if I should use a 
resistor of some value to decrease the voltage in this circuit going to the 
chassis ground? Thoughts and experience doing this on this unit is
