Does this sound OK?

Electrical

ELECTRICAL SAFETY should always be a primary concern when working on electrical devices.

Always seek the advice or assistance of a professional whenever you feel unsure.

Learn from the experiences of Qualified Persons, and Do-It-Yourselfer's.

This forum will not give you instructions on how to perform like a journeyman electrician.

If a task is too complicated for a novice or requires too detailed of an explanation you will be referred to the

Experts Area. http://www.bobvila.com/Expert/index.html

Remember, some electrical jobs are best left to the Professionals!

Joe,
What type of business does the experts get? Is it worth it?

Ron:

I don't know what the experts are handling, and what they are making, but they do seem to get lots of money for their efforts.

unfortunatly, the BB's disclaimers as to liability probably end where said 'expert' picks it up one on one.

I'm all for free enterprise, but there's something about the idea of bidding up until somebody is willing to offer advice for the price that just doesn't sit well with me. [Linked Image]
