Depends. If you mean minimum height then when its in specific hazardous areas like fueling stations its got to be minimum 18". If you mean max height then 5'- 6" for general purpose receptacle outlets. No code for minimum height in dwellings if that is what you mean.Simple question? I can't remember there ever being a code for recpt height. I can remember it being specified but not code. Please correct mr if I'm wrong.
If he can't keep track of a piece of wood how would i expect him to keep track of a hammer I had to pay for? Set the wood ,set the box, nail the box just three steps.Sure it does, added labor cost to pay men to keep track of and fumble around with a block of wood when his hands are already full. The hammer is already in the hand, it's the fastest way.
But what if someone picks up a hammer of a different hieght?Until someone picks up a similar-but-not-quite-the-same-length piece of another 2x4.
I use a hammer making sure the same hammer is used throughout.
The hammer goes on his belt, it's always there.If he can't keep track of a piece of wood how would i expect him to keep track of a hammer I had to pay for?
Faster is not always better , eyeballing it is faster. Why would a hammer be faster to measure with?The hammer goes on his belt, it's always there.
Using a hammer to measure the box height is much faster than using a block of wood, there's nothing to argue about.
But eyeballing is not accurate.Faster is not always better , eyeballing it is faster.
Because it's already in your hand, it never has to leave. You don't have to deal with a 3rd object.Why would a hammer be faster to measure with?
I disagree, when the item you measure with is in your hand, it is much faster than using a 3rd item, like a black of wood or a screwdriver.Measure with a screw driver it would still take the same amount of time.The item you use to measure has nothing to do with the speed of the measurement.
Incorrect. If you can't hold the box against the stud without it moving, you shouldn't be allowed to do electrical work.What I look at is consistant box hieght with a hammer you must move your measuring device (hammer) that allows for the real possibility of the box moving creating inconsistant height.
This is what we call a "crutch", this is something I would expect from a 1st year helper who hasn't come into his own yet. It is unnecessary when dealing with experienced workers and adds to the installation time.With a 2x4 it stays in place during the nailing process thereby giving a greater probability of a consistant height.
