    The only time I witnessed an AFCI trip was one time when trimming out a new home - out in rural...

    I will say true, and will also reluctantly say most of those mentioned appliances will likely come with such instructions, and IMO for no good reason other then for them to have an excuse to not...

    I agree, but also feel the same way about something like a chase or close nipple encircling the GEC. I can almost guarantee most inspectors will ignore any possible choke effect of a strap but will...

    Well, just cutting slots in a panel wall between single conductor entries is enough in that application.

    I am not all that certain either what results would be, but I am leaning towards using a...

    @ 120 volts this 3HP shop vac should have at least a 50 amp cord cap and 8 AWG supply conductors, maybe about a 70 amp breaker to make sure it doesn't trip while starting, I bet yours doesn't have...

    Does it need to be non conductive or just non ferrous? Not saying your suggestions won't work, but a brass or stainless bolt would be non ferrous also.

    Not as much as a metal raceway for a longer length around the conductor, but yes it should. If you can replace the bolt with a non ferrous bolt then it shouldn't.

    I wouldn't agree or sign it if I were a GC. That could mean the 2000 amp gear still on pallets but at the site is considered installed, I guess it still may have to pass inspection, but will it...
