    Oh one of them was the time I built an addition to a theater. It was an area where they said they might have an orchestra - although that was not actually in the intended use. Code called for 8" floor joists on 16" centers. I installed 10" joists on 12" centers. And installed (and just that quick I forget what they are called! - it's a short length of 2 x 12" nailed or screwed in at 90º to the joists) in every joist bay to further solid up the floor. Then double 3/4" plywood screwed and glued. The inspector asked why I had done all that.

    Let's go walk on it - ok; feels like concrete don't it?

    It IS solid - I'll give you that.

    Well; there's your answer then. The costs were only slightly higher and the job is far superior.

    But why did you bother doing it? It wasn't Called for.

    (I pulled out one of my favorites for him

    I Set examples - I don't follow them. <g>

    Oh; and one time I wanted my carport bigger. The rafters were already 2 x 12's. I wanted it about 5-6' feet bigger each way. So I poured a concrete footing and wall out five feet. It was full full of rebar and extended about 5' below grade. On it I built a stud wall out of 2 x 4's but 12" on-center.

    I lengthened the existing rafters each with 2 x 12 x 16' 'sistered' onto the existing rafters with 1/2" by 4" carriage bolts, washer and nuts. I forget whether it was six or eight bolts per.

    The inspector came by and from his car window said: You can't do that - the 'sister' has to double the full length of the rafter.

    Why not?

    It won't hold. First snow and it's be down.

    Really? Come on - let's take a look at it.

    So he gets out and starts squinting up at my work:

    How the hell big Are those rafters? Ten inch?

    No they're 2 by 12's.

    Who the hell put Them up there? Hell; you could drive a truck on that roof!

    I built it. It can't be Too strong, can it? <g>

    Wait a minute - are they Bolts? The 2 by 12 extension pieces you added are Thru-bolted? All of them?

    Drilled and filled every hole myself.

    What; are you crazy? When I drove by I assumed they were nailed. Nobody uses bolts.

    Except me.

    OK; just call me when you done and I'll sign off on it. We got nothing to worry about with You building it! I never saw anything like it!

    I tell guys in this business: Make every job a Masterwork - and you will never regret it. But it really applies to everything you do. It's pretty tough to do it too well.

    I wouldn't spend double - but if doing it really well costs 5-10% more - why Not do it?

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Does that clear things up?

    No Shell, ... I've never been allowed to set up a system like that.

    A Breaker sized for both units, could feed a SER Circuit to a Sub-panel, where a breaker could feed/supply power to the IDU, & another breaker could "feed" the ODU, .... And in my position that would include a fused disconnect within reach of the ODU.

    Just this last weekend, I was in the garage/shop and Black Betty came on the radio.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_2D8Eo15wE

    I found myself slip sliding across the floor. If my better half was there, I would have handed her the smarty phone to grab a vid. Just for yu DDB. But alas, I was all alone, rockin' out to the tune.

    Did you know Tom Jones came out with a version of Black Betty? Oh, those were the days . . .

    YouTube is friggin' great.

    Here's Tom Jones doing Lead Belly's Black Betty.

    Probably considered racist by the whackos of today.

    Enjoy it all the way to the end, where they say . . . One more time . . .

    This about what I look like movin' and jivin' to the tunes.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpsGh4Amt44

    By the way. There's a couple of Tom Jones tunes that just really rock.

    Oh, on a side note, I think the first time I heard Tom Jones was in the 70's when I was in high school. When he sung the impossible dream. At the time, I was a rock 'n' roller, but that really sunk in deep. That song still does something for me.
