Yeah Thanks Paul.
I find it strange that there is no mention of a bracing pole or a corner-tension pole or a stub-working pole.
It's all good just the same, thanks a lot mate!. [Linked Image]

Yay!,
Joint pole V1 has CB's on it.
Here we call them Dominion Drop-Outs (DDO's) and they use a length of wire as the fusible link, up to 66kV.
They don't reset themselves.
Someone got that sort of wrong. [Linked Image]

Nice pics. Love reading about all this stuff. Really fasinating. Thanks. My hat goes off to anyone who works on high voltage power lines.

Around northeast NJ, there's a lot of distribution power company wiring using diamond shaped insulator/ spacers used. "Hendrix" method I think it's called. Supposidly more resistant to storm damage, but heard that it's higher routine maintenance.
