Thanks John T you explained it so even I could understand what you were saying. What I have is an old house next door that I use as a shop, sort of. That is were the old 60 amp panel is at. My brother Billy Bob has done a lot of re-wiring over there and it is a mess. I am wanting to wire up a temporary receptacle for a plasma cutter and wanted to make sure it was grounded. I have another question if you don't mind. Years ago I added a sub panel to the house main panel which is in my garage. It is connected with conduit to the main. Does that panel come with the neutral and ground connecting bar un-connected or was I supposed to break the connection?

Thanks for the kind words and your question is a good one often asked.

Heres the deal as brief as I can make it (Engineer and Attorney mind you lol). If you supply a sub panel fed from your main panel, to that sub you carry sufficent Hot UnGrounDED Conductors (2, L1 & L2 for 120/240),,,,,,,,A Neutral GrounDED Conductor,,,,,,,,,An Equipment GroundING Conductor.

At the sub the Neutral Buss and Equipment Ground Buss ARE TO REMAIN SEPARATE AND ISOLATED. Yes that means any tie bar (N to G) is removed HOWEVER the panels metallic case frame, same as any other metallic enclosures, requires a bond to the equipmet ground which may be accomplished by a screw that goes from the ground buss into the frame BUT THATS NOT THE SAME A N TO G TIE BAR MIND YOU

Got it???????

So I can ground the green wire to the panel box. That panel is just fastened to wood and the only connections to the first sub (which is another main panel)is the hot and neutral feeding this box.

It is hard to explain things, a picture is worth a thousand words.
