I'm putting a class together and looking for some unique photographs. I'm very interesting in two type of pictures that I can use. Picture of clean installations that are a code violation and hastily or poor workmen like manner work that outside of sloppy installation practices, it's meets code. They are out there. I've seen them. Any good quality pics would be helpful. Thanx

If you can track down Joe Tedesco, he has thousands of pictures. I am sure he has a web site.

This looks like hell, but apparently meets code:

They used a scrap of romex for cable support. Looks unprofessional, but one could argue that the romex scrap is gentler on the wire (in that it's less likely to damage its insulation).

Good pictures but I'm still looking. Have you have one of thoses fist impression of "nice job" moments then you see something majorly wrong? Or you look at a rats nest to find out outside of workmen ship, you don't find anything wrong with it?

I have one of a transfer switch somewhere on my external hard drive. Three parallel runs in and out, all nicely laid and terminated. Unfortunately each of the parallel legs were not slit among the conduits but each leg had its own conduit

I would say the NM conductors coming behind the 3 gang box does not meet code, 300.4(D) have some photos of some houses where "EC" would never enter any box from the bottom, every one had the cables enter the top, but the wiring was poorly done & of course passed inspection.

Due to the garbage electrical work & the references to "110" & "220" volts, I called them a DIY'er with a C10 contractors lic.

I don't know if it's still that way, but Joe "owns" (copyrights) all the images (even if they're sent to him by other people).

Old Joe seems to be in the wind. His web address is up for sale.
