My cheap camera couldn't catch the truth here. I plugged one probe of my tester into the dirt, and the other probe to the case of this 25' sign. Read 89 volts! Found it barefooted while getting out of my truck. Yow! The grass has died right around the base....

Scott,

I believe you told us on another thread that you were a native Californian.

You sound more like a Mountaineer with that barefooted stuff. [Linked Image]

This is similar to the method I use to troubleshoot underground mobile home feeders, if there is grass growing in the middle of melted snow in Winter, dig here, if grass is dead in middle of green patch during the summer, dig here.


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Yes, Quite the tingle. Owner says it's OK though. I'm calling code enforcement.
A real cool memory:
Working in Beverly Hills. Service truck had half the RF fender missing. I was wearing camo T-shirt & Bib overalls, had the sidewalk covered w/ fixtures as I installed "Bodine - #B90" Emergency Packs (as in Jethro). All noses were held veryhigh in the air as folks passed by. I loved it, just wish I'd brought one of the chickens from home with me. My daydreams were great that day.

Never said I was a sophisticated Californian.

"Oh, Milburne. It's that dreadful electrician again!" [Linked Image]
And still didn't cut it! City of BH requires a total system (ie UPS) to supply E/M, Exits, etc. No self-powered units. Rewired all the darn things again!
& I'm still laughing

I thought it was already established that they were made by martians, as a prank. When you travel all that way, you just gotta do something memorable.
