I have been the "Terminator" for the last couple of weeks
(all day, every day).

This one caught me by surprise...Scott (Electure)

The "torquer" wasn't too skilled with his handy pneumatic impact wrench.

That is indeed a high pucker factor discovery.

Bjarney, I'm the torquer!! With a Snap-On torque wrench. I did the two on the left and...huh? (yes, I slash them with a sharpie)
The CØ lug is the same top and bottom.
Panelboard's C-H, and neither they nor the lug manufacturer caught it! [Linked Image]...S

D'oh! Apologies, electure. I completely overlooked the "extra metal" on Cø.

This question shows my lack of experience with 480/277 panelboards, but is it typical to have some type of divider/cover for the lugs? I would hate to see something fall across that....KABOOM!!!

To borrow a phase phrase from GlennH in the Crispy Critters thread:

I heard that this particular model is being phased out due to complaints...

Don't worry about CH, it's just a phase.

I can't say I'm surprised at seeing this...nothing phases me anymore.

OK, OK, I'll stop now...before this drives us all nuts [Linked Image]
