Default Pictures of your work

So I'm too lazy to search for a thread on this so here's a new one. Ever done a job and just stared at it and wished everyone could see it because it's so damn pretty. Post your pics here. I'll go first.

400 amp 120/208v 3 phase sub-service on the 2nd floor of an event center.

Feel free to comment on my work, I did all the make-up on this.

Nice work!
Any flexible cable is hard to make look nice, but nice work.
We usually mount large JBs or troughs up high and run conduit into the panels. Little more work, but when/if a T-Bar ceiling goes in, makes the install nice and clean

I'm not sure you guys can handle my pictures, they're pretty high tech. lol

First picture is how all the previous fixtures were wired, I have never seen that method. Second picture is the type of fixture they wanted in absolutely every room in the home. Suuuuuuper creative. Jealous?

Custom-installed cranes with two trucks (two trolleys, two hoists) on each bridge, controlled by radio or pendant.

Thank you, that's my first compliment on this job.

(After I got it all operational & turned over, my boss said "That took way longer than I expected.")

Don't sweat it. I appreciate the time it takes to lay out and set-up custom controls and contactors. Looks great. I've done a few overhead cranes, but I've only powered the rails, never set up the control box.

It's pretty basic: Up, Down, Trolley Left, Trolley Right, Bridge Forward, Bridge Reverse; maybe a 2nd speed, maybe a soft start. Not too hard, especially if you have a manual -- and they're almost always available online, with detailed wiring diagrams.

The challenge here was that each hoist / trolley had an integral control transformer. So it was either disassemble each hoist control assy & rewire (I thought a bad idea for new / warranty eqpt.), or do the control relays (as shown) to keep them isolated.

TR that genny gear looks awesome, you prob needed 3 other guys or a Lull to hold it up while you secured it in place.

But the PVC -- that's cheating!

If they made me do PVC, I'd have my apprentice run it while I kicked back in the break room doing """paperwork"""... [insert <haha> tag here]

Picture 1 is all the tape we removed from temporary cable prior to remarking the cable for a UPS bypass.

Picture 2 was somebody's idea of how to make a NFSS out of a FSS I HOPE and was not intended for Over Current Protection.

Picture 3 is a #10AWG Solid when you put a couple 100 amps across the wire.
