United and shwing. United for cheap every day stuff and shwing for everything else.
Used to be Micheals and NuMerit when I worked Nazi county.

Interesting.

My boss prefers AC because he can bully them into better prices

I prefer AC kind of. I can't stand schwing.

I got robbed by AC one two many times. United electric in Hauppauge takes good care of me and schwing, they are good for stuff no one else seems to stock. I buy most general stuff from HD or Lowe's.

Were not electricians, we're fabricators.

For my purposes, HD is the best bet for me as of now. All the dudes at AC Bohemia are straight idiots.

Schwing farmingdale is pretty good.

But I've got into many fights at schwing South Hampton.

I've never been to United. When I worked for an EC in Huntington/Hauppauge area we always went to N&S.

I think raco makes them like that but no one would have them on hand.

SH if opened has combo duplex device and almost any combination of 1900 plates.
Hd is useless. If it was without creativity i would be forced to use two boxes with the sole 1900 plate they sell.

I know Gary and Jonathan quite well , for 4 years i gave them 70% of my purchases.
AC always carried everything i don't like such as those black plastic nail ons and Murray meter pans and panels ontop of charging top dollar. AC had tripled their prices to keep opening stores all over. Charged me $8 ea for a pool bonding lug, attempted $156 for a pool panel. No no no, I'm not a winner at Atlantic city.

Looks good to me, crackhouses don't deserve wiring methods. How did you run a new circuit to that location?

I had a bundle of 3/4 emt, fittings and thwn in my truck. So i did a conduit run in the basement figuring i can pick up the next two rooms when they fail. A little more time but i was able to use some stuff I've been driving around with and make money off it.
