    Hey Brent

    So how did I do?

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    That's the way the teacher wants it done. He says it's a signature. At one time, in the past, he could open a panel and tell who wired the house. A little tell tale sign here and there. All about pride and craftsmanship.

    Now there is no pride, just slam bang and done.

    Thanks Steve

    Now I know why Brent is on the push to re-wire our panel and get one for our garage. Not to mention talk of a generator...

    Steve, I just gave it a second look and I got to reduce your grade. The wire going to the second breaker on the right bottom was too long...

    Looks good Steve Way more care than I take when I do it. But not quite as much care as 2 of our better electricians. For them you have some un-level wires and the bend is to big in some and the wires on the bottom are not bent at a 90.
    But like I said way better than I and a lot of others real electricians do.
    One of the best guys I have seen goes so far as to label each wire in the box. Looks real sharp and you know what each breaker does with out having to look at the cover.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.
    Stupid hurts.

    Don Stole what I was gonna say!

    That looks really nice to me! I wired up the subpanel in my old garage and tried do make things look good. Nowhere near as nice as that!

    Our current panel just scares me to look at it....
