    If I am not mistaken no box is required for that type light. If so just put a pancake box-- there is so much space there that using a box is inane, IMO. There are usually 4 mounting holes at the...

    I get it you want a momentary relay not really a momentary switch. All the switches are momentary as they just push the relay in and out with air. You want one that stays on as long as you have...

    Plumbers always supply those switches and they buy them at the plumbing supply place. I can't imagine an air switch that is not momentary

    Welcome to the forum. I don't know what UL508A is but the nec does not allow a #4 on a 100 amp breaker as a feeder.

    Load x 1.25 if the loads are continuous =96A thus you need a conductor good for...

    No, the nec does not require the panel to be replaced unless there is some reason it won't work- perhaps an old fuse panel, etc. AFCI are not required to be replaced unless there is work down on the...

    No, the service can be 6000 amps and the ground rod only needs to be 5/8" x 8' or 1/2" by 8' if listed. BTW, welcome to the forum

    You cannot run 2 feeders into the panel but if it is a 60 amp 120v feeder you can just jump the lugs or the main breaker so that both sides are hot.
