Sportster,

Sorry if I came across wrong. Not trying to start an argument as I fully agree with everything you said! I was simply pointing out that JD's situation was likely a code compliant install at the time it was done. I was also taught that all grounding should be to a "bullseye" at the first disconnecting means. The NEC seems to be adapting old rules to state that as well. I also agree that improper grounding can be very dangerous! Obviously, you and I have a much better understanding of the NEC than most non-elecricians. I was just trying to give an explanation to those less familiar with it. Hope I didn't offend as that was not my intent!

Jess

Oh I was not rying to be argumentive in any way either.Was not ready disagreeing with anyone [ different area diferent interpetations of code frm whoever gives the inspectors seminars etc.] Just getting into code discussions . Usually when Im on this site Im laughing at alot of stuff becuase its funny and not stupid funny. Alot of these things depend on the inspectors and what they want. John T sure does love "sparky chat" too. A licensed code teacher once said you have to read each code article six times . Im thinking this guy is an idiot. Next time Im in the code reading Im thinking he was right. Final word on this is John T post above I'd say Haha.

Have to agree, reading it sure reminds me of reading one of my legal statute books grrrrrrrrrrrr I HONESTLY cant say which is worse or harder to understand!!!!!! So many this and that and subject to and exceptions. As you sparkies know the Illustrated Handbooks with all the pictures and illustrations SURE DO HELP. What helps is to understand their precise techy terms and fairly detailed specific definitions. Thats why I spell out and emphasize precise terms such as GroundING Conductors and GrounDED Conductor and UnGrounDED Conductor and GroundING Electrodes etc etc which yall understand but may confue non sparkies BUT I CANT HELP MYSELF the curse of being BOTH an engineer and attorney I reckon grrrrrrrrr

Best wishes, sorry for boring the non sparkies

John T

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Thanks John for the Grounding and Grounded.
I started my apprenticeship in '68 and until I think in the '90s that the code changed from Neutral and Ground to Grounding and Grounded. Why? I don't know, this old sparkie can't keep it straight in my feeble mind.

Dusty
