We farmer types tend to deal with a lot of govt regulations that come from fellas sitting behind a desk and don't know what they are actually regulating down at the farm.

We end up having to skirt those govt types and just get disenchanted with the whole govt regulatory thing.

On the tiny bit of wiring I've ever done, I came to the code stuff with the same attitude. Oh, just more beauracrats sitting around making stupid rules, how do I get around their junk....

After playing with the little bit of wiring, I came to find out the electric code, anyhow most of it, is really there to help, one of the few govt things that makes some sense.

Took a while to adjust my attitude on that, from regular govt stuff.......

I think maybe some of the redneck attitudes towards the code might come from that same background?

I don't view the National Fire Protection Assn (NFPA) nor the NEC panel as your typical fat cat bumbling federal bureaucrats. They are true experts (NOT Government workers but professionals in the electrical field) and the finest minds in the business who have worked, learned and dedicated their lives to electrical safety and some changes in the code are because of a fire or a life was lost so its investigated and improved.

How do I know this?? Its because in my day I have attended their seminars and workshops, I have talked to them, I have read their treatises. It was in the day of the likes of Joe McPartland and Mike Holt etc who are NOT Bureaucrats but electrical contractors and educators.

So again I say to Billy Bob and Bubba (NOT you) if they have a method they know is safer and better then the NEC says and they are willing to bet their life on it GO FOR IT

Thanks for your input
