Just caught up

Welcome to the electrical channel. To start this off i did a service change yesterday for a semi flush 100A panel. The panel was a zynsco (notorious fire hazards) for an eaton. The exterior was stucco and the interior is wood studs.

The autists will notice labels. Those are to signify opposite phasing

this is my newest apprentice


@Deleted User you get used to it. I did this live. The transmission lines were not turned off.

Come Monday i will be changing the condenser (outdoor) and the evaporate coil (inside attic). I guess ill be sharing that in here or another channel

If anyone has any questions about electrical or HVAC im here to help.

@Deleted User lmk if my initial post in electrical is what your looking for. Also i sold a HVAC install for monday that i would like to share

After its complete

I can also teach electrical theory, pratical use, codes, troubleshooting, safety as well as advanced techniques for seasoned tradesmen

So thats 1830 pst?

What type of water filter?

And do you boil?

Tampons for wounds too?

Asking for a friend


@Louis Loire - NY nice someone got the joke

I look forward to learning other branches techniques. The navy didn't go very in depth on these things with my rate

Roger that

In a few hours ill have new content

Bonus- blackberries grow like weeds. Very invasive, they love water

Just like passion fruit

Hell yeah

I carry turbo capacitors. You may find the versatility helpful in the field @Deleted User

Gregs right an $18-$60 part installed averages $400-$450 installed out here

Well heres half the install of today. The customer asked if we could come back tomorrow so they could have family time

Age and demand. When a compressor sits for 9 months without use the oil in the refrigerant sludges to the bottom. Then you hope to turn the system on. The mechanical side tries to move, but the electrical side doesnt know that the mechanical side is struggling so it tries hard and dies

@William Kenney โ€“ MD a capacitor stores static electric energy in a dialectric space... literally lighting in a bottle. When and electric motor is mechanically locked the electrical system will generate more, without ampacity monitors devices will literally overheat. See the by prodruct of electricity is heat. Our NEC is technically NFPA volume 70. The national electric code is written by the national fire protection agency

this is arc damage on a 100A main breaker.


Still carry scissors and a punch tool? @Infineon

@Infineon dressing racks is so tedious. BTW have they made a toner that reads thru mag shields yet? I had a hospital contract years ago where a guy cut the labels off in the server room on cat6a with mag shields.... fml that was ridiculous to ID

That will read thru mag shields?

Holy shit

Please shoot me the model info

Well i know the toner im buying next time someone wants a needle in a server room haystack found

My toner is for mostly tracing underground 120v-480v

But even then it can be difficult to trace underground work

Its funny that people freak about higher V

Voltage and current are inversely related

I hear that

Do you fusion splice also?

I feel like i wasted my time with fiber, certs but rarely get the work for it

Sc and st?

When i was in the military i worked with a system that was fiber for engineering spaces on an aircraft carrier. Got out and barely touched glass

Well anything you can learn that will let you eventually contract is good imho

I concur with greg 100%

@Izat - VA keep an eye out for broken tabs on outlets. They may be switched

As a rule of thumb on a 120v circuit a 100w is around 1a

And dimmer switches can only handle usually around 600w. So if you plan on dimming that area you may need to divide the load across two dimming switches

Rotor and stator

Keep in mind when building this that it will always take more energy to make energy than the energy produced. Heat and friction are energy losses

This is the equation that prevents perpetual motion

Ugh im at a negro house giving an estimate

Literally a chimp out on tv..... and the smell....

slave art?


Remove and replace a 225A single phase panel

Im on my 10th hour

Still not done

Tomorrow i have another one to do

Wednesday im installing a lighting control system

2.5 days work and ill clear $6k

Contractor life

@Deleted User east coast vs west coast. Out here we use all in one enclosures, i hate it. You guys have the better version

@Deleted User this building wanted a way to work on the panel without shutting down the substation also. With the meter socket they can monitor usage and have a means of disconnect for swapping main breaker

@R O M A N V S sterilization is key

At least he's alive. I've seen people die at work

Everything from arcs, people falling, and scissor lifts falling over


One time i had a scissor lift tip and i grabbed a fire protection water pipe and literally kept it from tilting over. I had to wait on some guys to help

I was about 20' in the air

@RevStench i refuse to move a scissor lift horizontally unless its fully lowered first, after that fire pipe save the company at the time i was working for when i wagecucked made it a rule that scissor lifts were not allowed to drive while lifted at all
