    It's required to upsize circiut coductors 1.25%. I have not found undersizing to be a problem.

    I have no idea what a motor load adjustment is.

    The neutral current does not cancel out on two legs of a three phase system the way it does on a single phase system, It carries all the neutral current from all the 120V loads.

    Moving the panel is a good start. Looks like you are going to be there all month.

    In that case you would need a service rated transfer switch and your main breaker panel would become a sub panel.

    What you are talking about is not a "feed through", that would mean using lugs on the buss in the panel to feed another panel.

    What you would have is a transfer switch fed after the service...

    We patch them all the time. Wire tracer and a fault finder, some crimp on connectors and heat shrinks, oh and a good shovel.

    Yes, you would need a corner ground or ground detector. Buying a tanning bed that runs on 208V is a much better solution, or get a transformer with a center tap on the delta side.

    Devices would be okay, all breakers should be turned off, any tv's, radios, light bulbs, microwaves, aquariums, disco balls and lava lamps, all that kind of stuff needs to be disconnected.

    That's not what I said at all. You asked "Is this overkill?" and I said there is no way to know that unless there is some notion of what the load is going to be.

    Service equipment has to have a direct connection to the grounded conductor.

    That is not correct, one end of the raceway is all that needs an extra connection beyond a lock ring.

    All the things on your list are stuck in the earth. The metal rail in the OP is totally isolated and there is no way it could be energized until you bond it.

    The 3 and 5% stuff in the NEC is nothing more than a suggestion. The fact of the matter is voltage drop is load dependent and anything that works on 120V is made to tolerate voltage as low as 90V.

    The ones we just started getting are a new style that come with a center hole but no screw pre installed and two loose screws and nuts. Code only calls for two so I don't put one in the center.

    Those do not apply if you only have one receptacle.

    That is incorrect. Breakers can be used up to 100% of their rating.
