I guess that's why NYC requires MC cable...rodents...

Using that assumption, shouldn't MC be required in all Lawyer's offices?

Funny you should say that... I just got through running a dedicated circuit in a lawyers office in MC cable.... (Actually a collections attorney) Trying to run 8 laser printers @ 7.8A each & a 12A copier on the same circuit... He wanted a bigger breaker LOL.... It's amazing how someone can be a higher education graduate & then be completely clueless in other respects...

I've found that in this world there are smart people and there are educated people, but not all smart people are educated and not all educated people are smart.

I took these in the attic of a doctor's office last fall. They got a dozen squirrels out of the attic. They seem to love to chew on plastic. The office is an older home that has been converted, notice the knob and tube remnants, disconnected but not removed.

In defense of the rodents that stuff is actually pretty tasty.

Trumpy You don't understand the mast was a temporary repair. The permanant repair is in the work order system somewhere.

I've heard rodents instinctually NEED to chew on things. How they chew on Romex without getting fried is anybodys guess... [Linked Image]
SteveMc: How is that whitish box supported, and what is it made of? I've never seen one that color before.
