Caught you Joe -- using one of my pictures, eh? Go ahead anytime!

Say, don't blame the electrician on this one. This work was done on an Air Force base after the final electrical inspection was completed. The irrigation contractor needed to get 120V to his irrigation box on the outside of the building (upper right). So, he found a way to get it done (ouch!).

When we saw the flexible conduit going into that elbow, we had to get a key to open the door and this picture is what we found!

Randy:

Whew! I was really worried, and didn't want any legal problems.

I too have many pictures and many people use them during their classes. I have no problem with that because I am the only one who has "the rest of the story"

Do you have any more pictures to share?

Good, and from the 1999 NEC, just change 547-13 to 347-13.
