Not really just the old shit is heavy duty as hell.

2017-08-01 20:30:12 UTC  

Right on.
When's the last time you guys saw these?

2017-08-01 20:30:16 UTC  

Bx..... that shit is tough to cut. Mc is so much easier to work with now

2017-08-01 20:30:32 UTC  

@RevStench last year

2017-08-01 20:31:25 UTC  

Haha word. I work exclusively in historic buildings, and I don't see them often.

2017-08-01 20:31:50 UTC  

Looks like screw in fuses for knob and tube

2017-08-01 20:32:19 UTC  

I stuck my finger in one as a kid lmao

2017-08-01 20:32:23 UTC  

Or this that a switch?

2017-08-01 20:32:28 UTC  
2017-08-01 20:33:21 UTC  

I think it's a switch. Not sure, I didn't mess with it haha

2017-08-01 20:33:27 UTC  

My luck I'd break it

2017-08-01 20:34:34 UTC  

If its a switch ive never seen one

2017-08-01 20:35:25 UTC  

It was at the height of a switch by a door like a switch, so I just assumed it was one

Louisville is unique because we have the largest collection of Victorian homes in the nation that haven't been remodeled. Our historic society is really strict. If you pull the shutters off and don't replace them they fine you until you do. It's absurd, but I love it because "Old" Louisville is beautiful.

2017-08-01 20:39:30 UTC  

That doesnt sound like muh freedom

2017-08-01 20:41:03 UTC  

It's worth preserving. Nothing modern is comparable.

2017-08-01 20:41:16 UTC  

I respect that

2017-08-01 20:43:58 UTC  

I see all these pictures of historic buildings on the server and twitter and I'm ok, so great your posting this stuff, but am I the only person who's actually saving them?

2017-08-01 20:49:36 UTC  

Remember when the trades were segregated? Whites, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, masons. Blacks brick layers, not masons. Hispanics dry wall, painting, and metal studs.

2017-08-01 20:51:28 UTC  

Still is for the most part

2017-08-01 20:52:23 UTC  

They are switches. They're just spring-loaded the upper one pushed in is for on. The place I was at today has them. You can purchase new ones there replicas for when they wear out

2017-08-01 20:52:58 UTC  

Sweet, thanks for identifying them bro

2017-08-01 20:53:44 UTC  

In the 30 years I've been doing electrical work I can count on both hands the # of black electricians I've worked with

2017-08-01 20:54:14 UTC  

@Lebens around here seems like everyone who swings a hammer calls themselves a carpenter. Low voltage guys calling themselves electricians, nigga you're a cable guy...

2017-08-01 20:55:46 UTC  

@Deleted User wow in the last 15 years I can't tell you how many blacks I've worked with calling themselves carpenters and they can't even read a tape measure.

2017-08-01 20:56:24 UTC  

I only hire our people period

2017-08-01 20:58:14 UTC  

So much of being an electrician is visualizing your work in your head. Whether it's the circuitry or the manner in which you're going to run your conduit racks Etc. They just can't keep up.

2017-08-01 20:58:39 UTC  

Watching One troubleshoot something is a riot

2017-08-01 21:01:29 UTC  

Lmao you're so right

2017-08-01 21:01:47 UTC  

We have to visualize everything

2017-08-01 21:02:35 UTC  

And understand it on an electrical "engineer" level

2017-08-01 21:03:05 UTC  

Nigs troubleshooting is like watching a trainwreck

2017-08-01 21:04:12 UTC  

Haha oh I know. I did cable a few years back to take a break from back breaking labor. And the blacks couldn't handle it. A literal monkey could do it.

2017-08-01 21:05:06 UTC  

A coax stripper and a crimp tool were too much for them to grasp

2017-08-01 21:05:24 UTC  

And cable is so simple, start at the pole every single time and work your way inside. It's cake

2017-08-01 21:05:30 UTC  

@Deleted User pretty much

2017-08-01 21:05:53 UTC  

They follow gibs law

2017-08-01 21:07:04 UTC  

Lil' twitchy on the trigger!

2017-08-01 21:24:09 UTC  

@RevStench How's our man with the red thumb doin?

2017-08-01 21:26:12 UTC  

He seems to be doing ok. He swears he's coming back to work tomorrow. He's that guy who works 7 days a week and thinks he's freaking superman.

2017-08-01 21:27:04 UTC  

He told me that he never felt a thing until after he left the hospital. That's how you know it was pretty bad cut.
