These photos are of a old A/C disconnect that somebody decided to hookup a buzzbox welder and 120V to. The NM is 14/2 and the fuses are 40 or 50A. I did not look inside the pullout.

Eesh!!! This is bad! That hot, cut off piece of romex hits that metal siding, somethings gonna turn into a big heating element! (Probably the 14/2 first) They'll be lucky if the 40/50 or 60A fuses are gonna save it! [Linked Image] Even worse if the metal siding isn't bonded to the EGC system somehow! Oh the humanity!

When someone leans on the side of an electrified metal building & gets (at the least) knocked silly, will they still be concerned about making waves??? [Linked Image]

The one who did that piece of work is an auto mechanic and is just staying there (not the property owner!) and his rugrats play there too,I will have to fix it as a freebee.

P.S. if you could see the rest of the property,it is loaded w/ old cars,wood,garbage,and other debris.
