For 50 milliamps all of the conditions have to be exactly right. 50 amps @ 240 volts - there is way less margin for error.
Its just extremely dangerous. There is no comparison of playing with a 12 volt versus a 240 volt power supply.
In additional to increased electrocution you also have increased danger from starting a major fire and god knows what else.
I just wouldn't play with a 240v 50 amp power supply unless I really knew what I was doing. I don't think it is something to tinker around with. "Gee what does it do when I connect this to this?"
