Hi,
I stumbled on this website when I was searching for input on the Amprobe AT-2005 (Which I decided to go for). I'm in the planning stage of starting my own business. I've been in service for ten years, was originally from California but the cost of living drove me out, Texas is very reasonable, a place where an electrician can actually own a home.

I've been master certified for over a year and a half and work in management at the moment.

Since I am still in the planning stage of my business I'll be picking your highly evolved electrician brains for advice. :nerd: :smartass: (We can't help but be geniuses, that’s why they call it the thinking trade)

Welcome.

You can be a shock monkey. I'll stick to being an electrician.

We've all played the roll of conductor at one point or another. Of course if you've never felt the joyful soothing caress of electrons hijacking your body as a current path then no you have never been a shock monkey and can safely remain just an electrician. :thumbsup:

I've taken the roll of shock monkey on a few occasions involving a shorted air compressor, dinged insulation, helper ignoring lock out procedures, and once even a charged capacitor in a ceiling fan of all places. Its been a while though, thankfully.

Do you have a picture of a shock monkey?

A shock monkey 10 seconds after the shock and 10 seconds before administering a swift kick in the A** to the person who turned the breaker back on.

Yeah, but most of us are not proud enough about that to brag about it.
