2018-05-03 18:45:58 UTC

That white stuff on the back of the door is asbestos.

2018-05-03 18:54:13 UTC

@RevStench extremely cool. Is that porcelain?

2018-05-03 18:55:35 UTC

I would think it is, but I don't know for sure.

2018-05-03 18:59:12 UTC

That's cool af. What do you think it is? Main service? Those are fuse holders, right? I don't see stuff like that around here. I was born in a house built in 1820, but the town I grew up in, the oldest buildings were from the 50s

2018-05-03 19:06:28 UTC

I wish I knew for sure, those are fuse holders for sure, it's on the 2nd floor, so I'm not sure if it's the main.

2018-05-03 19:09:12 UTC

I didn't have a lot of time to look at it, I had to run across town to help a lady out kind of last minute, it's Derby weekend so it's crazy around town right now.

2018-05-03 20:56:28 UTC

@RevStench lol you always find the craziest stuff

2018-05-03 21:23:43 UTC

Haha these old homes have really neat stuff in them.

2018-05-07 01:40:57 UTC

I bet it was a box added for something cool like a shock therapy machine.

Electricity is based

2018-07-17 12:27:03 UTC

I love it when a plan comes together


2018-07-17 12:37:42 UTC

@Rogue How's it hanging, bro? Haven't heard from you in a minute

2018-07-17 13:50:21 UTC

Hah cool pipe run

2018-07-17 14:21:58 UTC

@John O - Just hustlin' ๐Ÿ˜Ž

2018-07-17 14:42:52 UTC

Fuuuuck, I wish I had a scissor lift

2018-07-17 16:36:34 UTC

It is nice ๐Ÿ˜„

2018-07-17 19:12:03 UTC

The final straw that makes me go Union

2018-07-17 23:52:44 UTC

solar stuff โ˜€


2018-07-17 23:53:41 UTC

Dude, I still want you to explain what the hell is going on with that

2018-07-17 23:54:35 UTC


2018-07-17 23:55:18 UTC

wut is mppt

2018-07-17 23:55:55 UTC

"max power point tracker" it's the most efficient solar controller type

2018-07-17 23:56:26 UTC

Measures the charge of the batteries and lets the right amount of charge from the panels into the batteries

2018-07-17 23:58:11 UTC

Very cool

2018-07-18 14:19:19 UTC


2018-07-18 14:19:31 UTC

@John O - Ladies go crazy when they see my lift

Mine makes a mighty fine drying rack. I didn't do this btw it was like that when I walked in the shop.


2018-07-19 15:52:27 UTC

High agency drying rack ^

2018-08-04 20:57:25 UTC

@Everyone anyone here Work In New York?

2018-08-04 23:05:33 UTC

@everyone ^^

2018-08-04 23:11:48 UTC

@Whitelash Hessian works in NY

2018-08-15 23:13:55 UTC

@John O - Second week of doing conduit runs all by my lonesome. Will try and take some pics so you can mire ๐Ÿ˜„

2018-08-15 23:14:00 UTC

Naw, but it's been going good.

2018-08-15 23:32:20 UTC


2018-08-15 23:40:15 UTC

@Rogue take pics, bro. You just doing racks?

2018-08-15 23:43:59 UTC

I just ran 350 feet of UFB. The junction boxes were tedious af with 12/2 wire. I donโ€™t know how you guys do it every day.

2018-08-16 00:04:07 UTC

@John O - Nope, tying in lighting the first week. Box to box. Roughing in a wall since yesterday. Have to put that red fireproof puddy on each box.

2018-08-16 00:04:58 UTC

@Deleted User Fun stuff. Tedious af is a good way to describe electrical work.

2018-08-16 00:05:03 UTC


2018-08-16 00:05:08 UTC


2018-08-16 00:46:12 UTC

@Rogue very cool, dude. You've been doing it like 8 months?

2018-08-16 00:48:25 UTC

Yeap since the end of January @John O -

2018-08-17 15:38:28 UTC

Hell yeah

2018-08-31 14:58:35 UTC

Perks of being the last apprentice on the job

2018-08-31 14:58:38 UTC



2018-08-31 14:59:20 UTC

Also have some 500 in a box under all the rolls ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ’ฏ

2018-08-31 15:19:48 UTC

Damn, dude. I need to go Union

2018-08-31 15:20:29 UTC

That's all #6 in your trunk?

2018-08-31 15:46:13 UTC

Mostly 10, but I still have 300lbs of Mc 12/3 that I couldn't fit in here

2018-08-31 15:48:21 UTC

I actually want the spools more than anything else

2018-08-31 15:48:29 UTC

I need some giant spoils

2018-08-31 15:48:33 UTC


2018-08-31 16:54:29 UTC

Lol I have plenty now @Deleted User

2018-08-31 17:03:14 UTC

That's thick as hell for #10. What's the insulator @Nick-NJ?

2018-08-31 17:30:05 UTC

Actually yeah, the spools in my trunk are #6

2018-09-03 20:29:03 UTC

You son of a gun.

2018-09-03 20:29:20 UTC


2018-09-05 20:03:52 UTC

Just got put on a solar job. My journeyman wasn't kidding...shit sucks

2018-09-05 20:04:04 UTC

But it's better than no work

2018-09-05 21:12:41 UTC
2018-09-05 22:44:15 UTC

Heat index was 102

2018-09-05 22:52:24 UTC

Yeah boy, that builds character haha. It's been nasty here too, so humid, no breeze haha @Nick-NJ

2018-09-05 23:01:13 UTC

One time, I was working on the roof hooking up air conditioning units in August, and I went to Wawa, got a club sandwich, a meatball sandwich and a quart of milk for lunch. Long story short, I fell out at around 1:00

2018-09-10 00:06:59 UTC

Hey goys anybody @here got a second to answer a question about back-feeding a panel?

2018-09-10 00:12:31 UTC

With the impending storm, Iโ€™m going to wire my generator to my panel instead of running extension cords. Iโ€™ve got 50ft of #8 5-wire outdoor power cable, leftover from a 240v submersible pump. Thinking of landing a 30amp 2-pole breaker in my panel, and installing a standard twist lock outlet, or a knife switch. That way I can power my panel up and just turn off any breakers I wonโ€™t need (especially the main)

2018-09-10 00:15:05 UTC


2018-09-10 00:22:17 UTC

Basically my plan is to install a breaker(yellow) run the neutral and ground to the bars, the hots to the breaker, and power the bus bars from โ€œthe top downโ€ I realize that backfeeding is frowned upon, I know plenty of guys that run a suicide plug into their dryer outlet, but at least with my idea, all of my circuits are still protected by their regular breakers, Iโ€™m just supplying the panel with power from the other end. Just curios as to your guysโ€™ thoughts? Iโ€™m not a licensed electrician but I do plenty of panel work on 230/460v three phase systems

2018-09-10 02:37:54 UTC

@Px4 to prevent back feeding, just kill the main disconnect every time you fire up the generator

2018-09-10 02:40:24 UTC

Define "back feeding". I think that term might be differently understood between us

2018-09-10 10:05:46 UTC

@John O - youโ€™re right, I was using the term incorrectly. Thanks!

2018-09-10 13:46:50 UTC

@Px4 what are you worried about? I think your plan is good

2018-09-10 15:02:00 UTC

No worries, just wanted a second opinion is all.

2018-09-10 15:35:11 UTC

I hate seeing feeders that tight. Residential guys skimp on everything. What about a service loop? You can't spare 4 inches of aluminum?

2018-09-14 18:31:40 UTC

Boys, just got an appointment to take the Union test

2018-09-14 18:39:48 UTC

Get it son. @John O - good luck

2018-09-14 18:40:21 UTC

Long game, take over the Union.

2018-09-14 18:44:10 UTC

My plan exactly

2018-09-14 23:24:14 UTC

Hell yea^

2018-09-14 23:24:34 UTC

I'm working with another red pilled apprentice and that's our plan

2018-09-14 23:25:35 UTC

Last year they had our apprentoces go door to door and ask people if they were voting for Hillary. None of the apprentices actually did it

2018-09-16 18:14:02 UTC

@Nick-NJ Aha, yeah. There are a lot of 'scholarship opportunities' down here that equate to going out and shilling (couldn't think of a more accurate term) for the Democrats. No one takes it seriously.

2018-09-16 18:14:23 UTC

In other news, found out that there is a literal Antifa member in a position of power at my Local. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

2018-09-16 18:21:41 UTC

Welcome to Unions, homie

2018-09-17 03:25:11 UTC

@Rogue the communists destroyed the Unions long ago

2018-09-17 10:14:13 UTC

I wouldn't expect any other group to have taken them over, just by the fundamental way Unions function

2018-09-17 10:59:52 UTC


2018-09-17 16:31:18 UTC

Just passed the test

2018-09-17 16:34:27 UTC


2018-09-17 16:51:21 UTC

Uh oh


2018-09-17 16:54:15 UTC

Yep, I did the same thing

2018-09-17 16:54:17 UTC


2018-09-17 16:54:22 UTC

Congrats brother

2018-09-17 16:58:47 UTC

@John O - congratulations bro

2018-09-17 17:10:19 UTC

Thanks, guys. I aced the test even though I was losing sleep over it

2018-09-17 17:18:14 UTC

Congrats to your local union @John O - theyโ€™re lucky to have you.

2018-09-17 17:32:07 UTC

Hell yeah, thanks homie

2018-09-17 17:47:41 UTC

I'm sitting here waiting to swear in, and I think the organizer is shit talking Democrats

2018-09-17 18:12:06 UTC

Great news! Good luck man.

2018-09-17 18:26:53 UTC

The president has an anti Trump sticker

2018-09-17 18:26:59 UTC


2018-09-17 18:28:14 UTC

Show up on your first day dressed like this


2018-09-17 18:29:04 UTC

Hell yeah

2018-09-18 19:01:53 UTC

Found something cool at work today. Check it out @John O - ?

2018-09-18 19:02:10 UTC


2018-09-18 20:16:23 UTC


2018-09-18 20:35:58 UTC

Hahaha we used to do that type of shot to each other all the time

2018-09-18 22:01:33 UTC

lmao holy shit

2018-10-12 14:06:31 UTC

@Rogue @Nick-NJ how influential are FLEs?

2018-10-12 16:38:26 UTC

@John O - Never heard of FLE until now, lol

2018-10-12 16:47:22 UTC

It's pronounced Flea, it's a fraternity inside the IBEW that slows things down @Rogue

2018-10-12 17:15:31 UTC

They mostly are travelers. Because of that, they're a great source of knowledge about other halls

2018-10-12 17:17:08 UTC


2018-10-12 20:14:19 UTC

@John O -๐Ÿ˜˜

2018-10-12 20:16:26 UTC

For real, though. I thought FLEs were some kind of big thing

2018-10-12 22:56:53 UTC

Never heard of 'em

2018-10-12 22:57:10 UTC

I'm taking classes through the union, too. We had a history section. Don't remember anything about FLEs. haha

2018-10-13 01:01:45 UTC

Apparently it was formed right after Miller died

2018-10-14 18:07:42 UTC

@John O - I've heard stories but haven't witnessed any as of yet

2018-11-09 23:55:04 UTC

Should I be concerned with a buzzing noise from my fuse box? It's fairly audible from couple feet away. I just noticed it incidentally.

2018-11-09 23:56:45 UTC

It's only a buzzing sound and eventually, it is not detectible if I walk far enough away.

2018-11-10 03:12:26 UTC

Actual fuses or breakers?

2018-11-10 03:12:32 UTC
2018-11-15 02:00:24 UTC

@John O - My elderly, White father-in-law stopped by and took a look. He said it was just the transformer making noise, which was normal and nothing to worry about.

2018-11-15 02:01:50 UTC

@Rick uhhhhhhhh

2018-11-15 02:02:09 UTC

Transformers are outside the house

2018-11-15 02:04:38 UTC

He may have misnamed it or I might be misspeaking, but he is pretty good as far as DIY handymen go and advised me not to worry.

2018-11-15 02:04:44 UTC

Thanks, though!

2019-01-04 18:15:33 UTC

Can anyone give advice on cleaning refrigerator condenser coils?

2019-01-04 21:19:42 UTC

<@&435155897363202058> ^^

2019-01-04 21:37:12 UTC

Not much to it really, I do my garage/beer fridge once a year if I remember, I usually just unplug it, slide it away from the wall, and go over it with the shop vac brush attachment. Donโ€™t go crazy and bend the coil or cooling fins, other than that itโ€™s pretty straightforward tbh.

2019-01-06 04:06:45 UTC

@apronandlace If you are really worried about it, and have the capability to do a wet clean, you could try WEB Condenser Coil Cleaner (sold at Home Depot, etc.). You spray it on, it foams up, you rinse it off. I used some on my truck's condenser and it worked OK. They claim it's safe for pets and biodegradeable, but you would want to unplug the appliance, have plenty of fresh air moving thru, and wear gloves and eye protection.

2019-01-06 04:07:41 UTC

And avoid painted surfaces

2019-01-06 04:19:57 UTC

thanks. i think it went well. I got a fridge coil brush and unplugged the fridge was gentle and did get a lot of dog hair out of there from the previous homeowner's dog.

2019-01-06 04:27:28 UTC

What was the fridge doing that made you look at the coil?

2019-01-06 16:47:53 UTC

just read that you're supposed to clean the condenser coils every six months to keep the fridge working well

2019-01-08 03:20:37 UTC

I have a fridge that's working a bit TOO well in the winter months

2019-01-08 03:21:08 UTC

Set to 4/9 with 9/9 being coldest, it freezes up the food...so I set it to 1/9

2019-01-11 22:05:07 UTC

The company I work for is hiring Wind Turbine Technicians. DM me for more details. <@&435155897363202058>

2019-02-06 15:05:57 UTC

Tfw break time turned into a political shouting match between the journeymen

2019-02-06 23:35:17 UTC

Usually the shouting matches at my site are just different guys calling each other gay

2019-02-07 23:31:39 UTC

Update on the fridge:
>long-term slow leak
>fix too expensive
>need new fridge

2019-03-05 22:53:40 UTC

So we have electric heat here. Baseboard. We got a thermostat installed a few months ago and since then, when we turn the heat up, it makes a noticeable buzzing noise. It lasts for about 10 seconds, stops for about 3-5 seconds, then lasts for another 10 seconds and repeats the cycle. Only stops when we turn the temperature down. Anyone have info on how to fix this?

2019-03-06 02:25:16 UTC

Did they just replace an old thermostat, or did they wire in a new one?
