Nice work, just missing tape on ccc's.
I asked about that and was told not to waste time on it. Isn't there a code on not re-identifying conductors smaller than 8awg? What's the solution if so? 12-3?
Is that a vinstar control panel?
Ems or telephone?
You put that conduit in the telephone terminal space...it's going to get ugly! :001_huh:
Is that a no no? Prints called for two duplexes on separate circuits for that board.

Thanks for the comments.

All ccc's need to be re identified. I drill a hole in a large sharpie marker, insert white wire, run up and down the wire a few times. Comes out perfect. Tape looks bad on small wires.

It is always a code violation to mark a white conductor to any other color in a raceway.

In a pipe white must be a grounded conductor or not used at all.

Nice bending practice and it fits but you did ask for comments.

If I had to do it that way I would have moved the offset up to the 90 so the conduit was tighter to the wall.

But I would rather use an LB at the top of the wall, if no LB was on site I would have mounted a 4 square at the top of the wall with it high enough to come out the back of it on top of the structure. In other words I would have used a 4 square like an LB.

Looks good the panel is wired very skillfully:thumbsup: The wires and conduit are actually straight:thumbup:

Only thing I see is the black 8 guage connected to the ground bar and no reidentified whites, but those are easy fixes.

I would have kept the receptacles close to the top of THAT UNPAINTED BACKBOARD.

I was reffering the gray cabinet with the black knobs that say surveyor. My contractor does a lot of family dollar stores and they use them.
