    More wiring fun

    I've seen some "creative" wiring but this takes the cake. I even found a 277v widow maker hanging off one of those wire nuts. Guess that's why they want us to ware our PPE.

    Unbelieveable.

    i love the wrap-around style of landing a wire. I guess that the supply house was out of zip ties, wire nuts and sheet metal screws. Either that or that transformer is reeeaallllyy heavy.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Another case of "we usually do our own maintenance."

    He should have to redraw the wiring diagram.

    Amazing!

    I hate it when people don't take pride in work - it puts a bad rap out there for the rest of us!!!!!

    they were probably afraid to touch anything after they got done putting that mess together and it worked.

    I can't believe he didn't use matching wiring nuts either, no pride.
