Hello! My name is Jim from Portland, Maine. I'm a licensed Master electrician. I spent 13 years doing residential/commercial installs, service, etc. I took a job a year and a half ago in an industrial setting. While I have basics down, control circuits are giving me a hard time. Start stop stations, use of control relays, switches and sensors of all types, it's a little overwhelming! It's almost like a different trade! Hell, I have a hard time trying to design a basic ladder logic diagram. I have come quite a ways, and some days are better than others, but I do enjoy the work. Anyway, I'm happy to have stumbled upon this forum. Hopefully I can pick up a few pointers here and there. Thanks for the ad!

And then there's MTW who will ask if you're really an electrician, or just reply to everything you post with one of his stock answers:

Welcome. What're your thoughts Tony's Donuts or The Holy Donut?

This is very important.
Well, I was raised on Tony's, you can't beat their molasses raised, the French toast boat, or the glazed rope! I've been to the Holy Donut a few times. A little pricey for donuts, but good. I gotta go with Tony's! Check out Little Bigs in South Portland @ cash corner. They have a "Cronut". Good luck trying to procure any, last time I checked they're on back order til the end of April! But their donuts are tasty!
