Setup for the photo to stir up a few reactions is my opinion... bit like the well known pic of the power board floating in a swimming pool. If you were short of a wire nut the obvious thing to do is twist the wires together and cover with tape.

Curious as to what/where the white/black splice in the vise grip goes? single phase, 2 wire pull out w/grd & all that are necessary are accounted for. Aussie may be on the right track, a setup pic.

JoeKP, You beat me to it. That website has some pretty funny stuff. Some of it ingenious, some of it baffling. The lengths some people will go to avoid doing even simple jobs right. Hope everyone who celebrates has a very Merry Christmas. Pete

NICE FIND!


I have a sense of adventure, I just keep it leashed with common sense.
