Not near a codebook, but isn't it the breakers that are prohibited, not the panel?
I think I remember being required to ground switch only if using metal faceplate? And then later having to ground switch regardless.
yeah that guy from Arizona used to call me a lot, his tape met same specs as 33 but was .49 a roll! I'm not sure if it was always the same guy but if not they all sounded the same. And I was able...
sometimes it makes a huge difference in missing obstacles, making turns, and avoiding transitions in size
usually takes me average of 1 hour, except only 55 minutes for "5 minute fan"
sometimes 2 in 75 minutes
a few weeks ago had one took 5 hours to swap out, 24' high in a furnished living room, 10...
I thought something about ape private parts
you and one other would be the first two I've met
and another job where wire had come loose from wire nut: "found and eliminated air gap"
I wrote something similiar up recently as "found and corrected open circuit"
If I'd known in 1979 the scope of things I didn't know, I don't know if I would have gone into business.
Lots still that I don't know or am not good at, but at least now I know that there is a lot...
Lots of code changes in the last 16 years.
I absolutely agree and have noticed that a contract will not suddenly change a shady customer.
But it is good to have something in writing so as to partially limit problems caused by poor memory.
In Georgia a deadbeat can very cheaply bond around a lien, house can be sold
Yes, I should know better than to explain why something is in codebook, it often leads to customer insisting I do something wrong, because whatever the danger, he would make sure it never happens to...
Charged more for trenching but made less money due to factors you mentioned etc.
$10k sounds low unless you're wanting older used machine with a fair amount of hours. In which case break downs regularly.
I had a V-30 for many years but couldn't justify running it for less per...
OP--any more information?
I had an employee do it, and have talked to other electricians that had done it or knew someone that had.
Our driver did not have handles, (and was not red), had to hold the pipe, I don't know if...
It appears that OP asked the same question on a HI site (inspectionnews.net) and the HI's were in general supportive.
Now that POCO's have battery and hydraulic tools, there are probably a lot of the old style with long wooden handles for sale cheap. I found one in a pawn shop, talked it down from $12 to $6. I...
Ok, so a 20 amp breaker will hold 20 amps forever, so there is no need for 125% rule (or maybe it's called 80% rule), and there is no good reason for NEC to limit 20 amp breaker to 16 continuous.
I don't know, never paid attention. How would this affect the situation? Heat? These are usually small panels, lately 200 amp, loaded with tandem breakers.
I see a lot of water heaters on 12 gauge-20 amp circuits. Mobile home water heaters often or usually have 3500 watt elements. When HO changes, he buys regular residential type with 4500 watt...
They don't sell the absolute worst, go to Harbor Freight for that.
But a 10-20% failure rate negates any savings, and can potentially harm relationship with customer.
I've always had very good...
