Yeah Thanks Paul.
I find it strange that there is no mention of a bracing pole or a corner-tension pole or a stub-working pole.
It's all good just the same, thanks a lot mate!.

Yay!,
Joint pole V1 has CB's on it.
Here we call them Dominion Drop-Outs (DDO's) and they use a length of wire as the fusible link, up to 66kV.
They don't reset themselves.
Someone got that sort of wrong.

Nice pics. Love reading about all this stuff. Really fasinating. Thanks. My hat goes off to anyone who works on high voltage power lines.

Around northeast NJ, there's a lot of distribution power company wiring using diamond shaped insulator/ spacers used. "Hendrix" method I think it's called. Supposidly more resistant to storm damage, but heard that it's higher routine maintenance.
