Industry Information

The Goodie Box  A selection of industry stuff.

If we do not slow down when trimming out an Electrical Panel,  we can easily leave a homeowner’s panel with a Conductor that is poorly terminated at the Overcurrent Device.  This situation gets worse when extra current is imposed on the conductor and is usually noted by an Inspector as a violation of the Manufacturer’s listing via NEC 110.3 (B).

I can provide you with Michigan Electrical Exam Preparation,  just a few minutes a day, with the (one of a kind) program the “Electrical Code Dude/Gal.”  Simply email me for a sign up sheet.  One small fee provides you with training all year, as you continue your Apprenticeship. When your exam rolls around, you may not even need a class!  When a Code Dude has a question,  I am just an email away for complete support.  I stay with you until you get it done.

I hope all is well with your business and/or your career.  I started my career back in 7th grade, working with my father who was an Electrical Contractor.  I have realized that the electrical field is vast and working with so many of you has been very rewarding. I have enjoyed working my way up to a Master Electrician and now a retired Electrical Inspector. I have been blessed to being able to work with so many Michigan Contractors and Industrial Companies in this beautiful State of ours, and now in my retirement I get to balance my Electrical Training with our love for the outdoors. My Wife and I love the outdoors and enjoy sharing some of the beauty with you on this website.

The current featured image is taken from one of many hiking trails in Leelanau County.  This spot is a special one. (Can’t tell you where it is!)  We have been blessed by all this beauty that God has provided all around us and it is just moments away!

I look forward to working with you, your shop or your Facility in the future.

Sometimes we get a little carried away when stapling NM Cable.  Yes, the winter is not friendly when the cable gets cold, but could you leave a job-site with this supported cable?

This situation is obvious and we would try not to walk away from it.  But try to remember when stapling NM Cable, even when we snug the steel staple just a little to tight, we create a future fire hazard.  I have seen many homes with fire damage caused by a steel staple that was pressed too tight on the cable sheathing. This traps heat and allows it to work its way onto the steel staple and back to the conductor insulation, which can’t handle it.  The conductor itself then arcs and causes a multitude of issues.

Next rough-in job, all you need to do is take special care with how you swing your hammer!
