Paul, I thank you for the concern, that's VERY genuine. Thanks again.

Most anyone in the field will tell you,..."We can always have it turned off!"

Guess what fella's?????? How in the HECK are you going to get a power quality analysis when the service is offline?????? Like an IR scan? Go ahead and have the service turned off, let's see what we can find.

If you have an answer for that, I have $100,000,000 for you.

I knew an honest answer was coming. I've also seen people on here "light" others up, so to speak, regarding working and not working hot. Was just waiting to see where it was gonna go. I think if I were "feeding" the argument, I would have added some input as to one side or the other. I was thinking out loud as a bystander.

My apologies.

Chris

No apologies needed, I knew your intent wasn't negative. You're right, some people get "lit up", and that's not right. We all need to be fair and not so one sided. Great point Aiken!

Some are just SO quick to jump on others when they know they are right. Give 'em a chance to prove their point, then speak. Great point!!!

Anyone who even uses an ammeter or clamp must wear full PPE, I guess that's an even better example.

Full PPE is a must no matter what level of experience.

Question

Guess I can't reply. I have no idea about NMD installations, plain and simple. I haven't seen nor ever been involved with it. I can't reply to something I have no idea about.

Would you like to fill me in? Anybody??????

Okay, another friend just answered my question. NMD is a Canadian wiring method I guess, correct??????


What do you think you SHOULD wear as far as PPE???? A minimum of safety glasses, rated footwear, and Class OO gloves. That's just a minimum.

You threw me off. Until now, I have never heard of NMD, but we learn new things everyday.

Let's go on from here,...........................

Sorry, didn't realize it was called differently south of the border

Anyway, I wear safety boots...

as well as a t-shirt and pants with a belt. Usually underwear and socks.

Should this guy wear gloves and glasses?

I was in my local Sears just last week looking around to see what tool I can't live without, and was surprised to see no Klein, Wiha, or Knipex. They used to stock the basic run of Klein pliers, cutters, and strippers, nutdrivers, Wiha Insulated screwdriver set, and Knipex Alligator pliers.

Seems like I recall the Knipex pliers having the Craftsman name on the grips and Knipex forged into the steel on the handle.

The Tools section didn't appear to be rearranged at all. Odd.

Maybe they just didn't sell in my local store? Have to check back in a couple of weeks. then, ask some questions.

Klein has stopped selling to Sears, Lowes, and Menards. They are now exclusive to Home Depot (when it comes to "big box" stores)

Dude, seriously, only a gaylover would have a pair of Kleins that are springloaded! I mean come on! Do you want a set of Playschool tools or what? Do you want a pair of springloaded dykes as well?

Don't forget no synthetic materials. It sucks when they melt into your skin.
