"Moby Dick"? I read that book once. Being a bit of a hypochondriac, I immediately caught it. [Linked Image]

Oh GEEEEEZ, you have to have qualifications to post here???????? That was NOT on the application!!!! [Linked Image]

NJwirenut: you did not say Extra light, or Extra heavy, I'm an extra heavy, so there.

I've been doing something for 34 years, some say it's electrical work, some say I've missed a heck of an opportunity to be a bus driver, oh well.

VA State Class A master - from 1982 (yes it makes a difference)
MD State Unlimited #16
DC unlimited - forget the #
Along with about 42 other masters related
Commercial radio - T2
20 years teaching apprentices
Extra Class amateur radio - AF4JH
Class A lineman certified by Local 77.
IAEI - All three levels.

Dang near cripple, full of asbestos and PCB, bald, fat, ugly. Grew a beard at the wife's request to cover some of it up!!

Title is "Electrical Engineer" for those of you that get e-mail from me at work, you'll notice I sign "Senior Electrical Inspector". When questioned about it by upper management, I replied "Because I qualify and I'd rather be known as someone who knows what the f#@! they're looking at" was the last time I was asked.

I'd still make a heck of a bus driver. [Linked Image]

Hello from South Dakota!!!

Real name: Jon Niemeyer
Started out in South Dakota as a maintenance electrician in '89.
Moved to Colorado in '93 and continued as an apprentice.
RW license in '94, JW in '95, masters in '98.
Moved back to South Dakota in 2001.
The only thing that has never changed is the fact that this is the greatest trade in the world, and if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!!!

And thanks to all of you for the help over the years. This is truly the best source of knowledge I have ever had the pleasure to use!

As I thought about 10 seconds after posting this thread, you guys will either chime in or you will knock me down to the ground for being too personal.
Thank you all for your input, I thought the pictures thread was enough.
I can assure you though there will not be a thread called "What does your wife look like"
I'd imagine that any Moderator here would get rid of a thread like that.
Kindest regards.
Mike. [Linked Image]

I'm not an Electrician. Mechanical Engineer through school, designed conveyors for 3 years, then architectural fountains for the last 19 years. The electrical part of fountains is more interesting than the hydraulics, there's much more variety. I talk to Electricians from all over the country every day, and I have a great deal of respect for them and for those using this site (too mushy I know). There's a wealth of knowledge on this site.

You got the right guy to be on the same page. I have 4200 documented hours as a apprentice in the state of Mass. No real claim to fame. Before that I was a CNC operator and programmer in a machine shop. Owned a candlepin bowling alley for 3 years and 4 years in the Navy. If the machine shop hadnt closed I probably would still be there. Which would be sad cause I like what im doing now & I never would have gotten to talk to all of you !!!!!!!!!
