Hi, HV:
I almost hate to ask this question...Is this the work of the same "electricians" you have shown us lately? Judging from their work, I'm surprised they actually use wire which has insulation around it... [Linked Image]

We don't know who did this,,,,,,yet
I would like to add , In the state of Mass
The board of Elec Lic does have a web site where we do list those who have suspended,revoked or lic's on probation and the conditions of the probation, unfortunately the general public for the most part never looks until they have a problem .
but it is good for inspectors to obtain certain information for some cases as well as lawyers for some who care to file civil suits against Electricians like this.
