  • Posted in thread: Bonded Ground and Neutal in Outbuilding Panel on 04-12-2014 at 10:07 AM
    OK, if this is an existing installation it is FINE. The neutral IS bonded to the panel
    enclosure. It is treated just like a main panel. You have to remember, the ground rod and
    associated wire have NO...

    I see that link shows "simplified" and "interleaved" panels. Very interesting, I've never heard
    those terms before. I see that interleaved describes pretty much all modern panels withing the
    last 35-4...

    This is why I cringe when I hear an electrician say "I will have to pickup a neutral from
    somewhere" & rarely do you see them poled together in the panel.Thing is, I have NEVER heard a
    self respecting...

    You will definitely have to re-wire the whole fixture. Most likely this fixture has starters
    that will have to be eliminated. Sometimes it can look complicated, but every wire is shown in
    the diagram ...

  • Posted in thread: AFCI vs GFCI Receptacle for Bedroom on 02-09-2014 at 02:53 PM
    Neither AFCI nor GFCI will protect from overload or short circuit. This is the job of the
    breaker. Now...GFI on ungrounded circuits DOES provide an added level of safety, AND on the
    LOAD side of a GFI...

    So tapping into a close by kitchen outlet won't work? Or will it just blow the breaker if
    something else is plugged in to that circuit?It is against code and is a very bad idea.

  • Posted in thread: Adding 110v Outlet off of 220v Oven Outlet? on 01-25-2014 at 01:43 PM
    Like I said it's just a wild guess and I'll probably tap into a close by 110v outlet anyways
    so don't crucify me for asking a stupid question! It is just a thought.You cannot, and should
    not, do this...

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone tried these? on 01-23-2014 at 05:02 AM
    I can't believe they actually still sell those.I've ripped out hundreds over the years, saved a
    few for laughs, always wound up throwing them away.

    I didn't mean to offend you, no not every tradesman try's to get rich off one job but the ones
    who do give the construction industry a bad name so yeah in this economy I'm cautious!I was not
    offended...

    Some of us don't make as much money as you do so I'd rather do it myself and hire "men off the
    parking lot at HD" then hire an over priced arrogant pro that MILKS his time and charges for
    every single...
