    Another panel

    Had to do another panel. This time in stranded wire. I went with Easter colors this time



    Don, did you figure out what that red wire on yours was for?

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

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Larry, we don't have a lot of tied-together 220 breakers, so it is just a mock up.

    Electrician or circuits/ electronics type guy. I am leaning more towards the electrician. Rather be outside or at least building something, rather than trouble shooting stuff all the time.

    Why do Canadians turn a perfectly good panel, on its side?

    because they always have to look at things being tall and vertical and so they want a change in scenery

    Ahah - the fact that this is a training panel explains why the leads are just cut 12" outside the panel.


    And I've seen 2 - 110 V Breakers linked into a 2-pole breaker like that in panels around here.

    Steve - good luck in your new adventure . . .

    Cheers

    Jim
