Here are some pics I snapped when replacing a main breaker for a linesman who works for a local Poco subcontractor! (In his defense, he says he just recently moved in with his fiancee, who has lived here for 6 years )

Norcal,
#8Stranded & #10 Solid.... This breaker has duties to the A/C Condensor & the dryer!
The 4th pic down is what scares me the worst! Open box full of lint! I guess if there is anything on the bright side,... This garage is detached from the house!

Linemen are not electricians and vice versa.

You can't tell me the average person could look at this stuff & think "Yeah, that looks right.. " He admitted these things needed attention, I just found it kinda ironic ..

Randy,
In that third pic, has that wall been spray-painted?.
Now,if there was a wire going into that piece of pressure pipe, to the right, that would make me laugh.

Trumpy, I am assuming that you know that I made a general statement. Guys that work as engineers are not electricians but I had my own electrical contracting business for a few years (got my license through the Block exam). Shucks, I even had a set of hooks and did a little secondary work but I assure you that I was never a lineman. LOL

This is off the subject,but has anybody noticed that Wagner has that annoying sound their sprayers produce muted in the TV adverts,it should be run in a cemetery, it most likly would raise the dead.
