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!
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
