I'm new to this board, but so far I've really enjoyed the discussions. Its really interesting to see the varied techniques and views on how to do the same job. Plus, having spent my whole career in California, how different the Utility-Electrical Contractor relationship is.
Anyway, what I thought would be interesting, is if people chimed in, stating what there electrical speciality was. Residential, commercial, industrial, hi-voltage....etc. Might make it easier when looking for an answer, or a different way of doing the same job. Just a thought.

ps. Our speciality is underground hi-voltage installations.

Sorry about that. Didn't intend to be repetitive.
Cheers

I am also new here and did not post on the other threads so I will answer here.
85 % Residential remodel, some light commercial and occasional service calls. Most jobs are kitchen renovations, bathrooms, and additions, very few new houses. Worked in commercial for a while but hated being on one job for months at a time. I would say my specialty is old work. I can snake just about anything. Many electricians I know make homeowners tear down the ceiling for recessed light installation, not me. I get my trusty rotozip and vacuum and I'm off!

NoShorts,

Welcome to the Forums. It's always good to bring this up now and then. As for myself, I've done some Commercial and Industrial but mainly Residential Remodel right now.

You'll find there's a great bunch of people here and we even get to have a little fun sometimes. ... So .. Along those lines I gotta ask (before Sparky does) [Linked Image]

Is the Name 'NoShorts4Me' alluding to a perfect safety record, or are you making a 'Fashion Statement' ? [Linked Image]

Well both actually. But the latter is the much more enjoyable explanation..;-)

Mom always told me to wear clean undershorts so that if something happened, I would be presentable for the Doctor. [Linked Image]
(quite the worst-case-scenarioist, Mom was)

NoShorts,
I have been looking for info on high voltage installations for a long time to no avail. Do you have any info/ resource you could pass along?

My specialty?

Taking proven money making methods and figuring out a way to lose money on them...

At least it seems that way...
