How did you decide on your username? There must be some good tales to tell about them.

I got mine becouse when I was an apprentice some time ago (26 years)I was an active outdoor sort of chap, sailing, hikeing, shooting, scouts all that kind of stuff. Well about the same time there was an obscure moive (had a couple of spin offs) going about called "Rambo" So one of the others started calling me Kenbo..
But it never stuck except within my group of apprentcies. So I thought this was a good place to revive Kenbo

Thought about it, and decided on my business name. So much for originality

Shock Me is a Kiss song with a few electrical referrences in it.

For instance, some of the lyrics are....

"My insulations gone, girl you make me overload."

I thought it'd be appropriate to to combine the two.

Almost became a statistic on two occasions involving 277/480. Didja know that 277 is the lowest commercial voltage whereby an arc, once established, is self sustaining???

Eddy currents are currents induced in metals. They tend to move in a circular fashion similar to the eddies of a river. Taken from my Delmar text.

Don't know why, it's just that everyone around me has been calling me by it as far back as I can remember. [Linked Image]

I thought it was because you understand everything, as in "Roger that" ...

Picked mine because its simply what I do every day, "rewiring" for whatever reason..

That and because some days I feel I am completely off my rocker and am said to be "rewired upstairs" [Linked Image]
