If that circuit ever becomes overloaded or faulted, there's a fair chance it'll get really ugly really fast.
yeah I hear ya, good eye. this is actually a sub panel. Probably about 2 additional breakers between this and the utility. This was done on the cheap(big contract, company didn't want the existing wiring to be modified at all) in a state with no licensing whatsoever in a facility where meth heads are always making "improvements". Also I'm not the Journeyman, just a helper. I saw much worse on this contract LOL...
