    It wont affect it unless you turn it on while stuff is wet.

    I think you can pour water on a part, but as long as it ALL dries before u give it power is should be fine.

    I think it's static electricity you should be concerned about .

    Hmm, the salt in sweat will corrode some metals.
    Really, I haven't thought about it - even though I often have sweat dripping from my forehead when working inside boxes, my hands stay peculiarly dry. :-/

    Put some powder stuff on your hands to dry them or maybe just a towel to dry them with.
