Re-wiring a house that was occupied by a fella that had no worries about death from electrocution.
He was stealing power apparently and the power company made several trips to disconnect the power. The neighbors report that he would climb the pole and reconnect the wires by the street!
The pictures show one of his tricks to bypass the meter can. He used these plumbing taps and 14 gauge wires to "connect to aluminum wires that ran out to a shed. One of the clamps had disintegrated and burnt into the insulation.
He may have been trying to power the house by backfeeding the shed's circuit into the main service panel. I am not sure what he was up to in some places.
this guy compares with the 2 working on the sign in the pool.guess he doesn't realize just what can happen if does the wrong thing!joule, have they caught this guy & put him in jail before he kills him self or someone else?

The police were apparently envolved with this guy a lot, but Its been 2 years since anyone lived there. Stories can get mottled over that much time. I can see layers of the work he did and the fine work done by others. I've been ripping out all sorts of "leaky" wires out of this place.
