Thanks Walt, as it turns out I recently did own some shares of Copper but it lost money!!! as compared to my earlier investment in Silver which made good money, SO NO MORE COPPER STOCK FOR ME GRRRRRRR LOL
Yes indeed, Ive been in houses that had the old 2 wire knob and tube. Then it was discovered how much safer and how many many more lives could be saved and perhaps fewer houses burned down if a proper 3 wire ground system was used and it proved to be correct and lives were saved yayyyyyyyyyyy
Of course, if you prefer the old less safe 2 wire system THATS YOUR BUSINESS AND CHOICE AND IF YOURE WILLING TO BET YOUR LIFE ON IT YOU GET NO ARGUMENT OR CRITICISM FROM ME. Go for it
YES Walt, Im well aware of doubled insulated tools and 2 wire cords and plugs and how often its used NOT a problem, Im only talking about situations where the outer conductive metallic case frame of a saw or tool or motor or welder or appliance or implement is indeed attached to the third safety ground wire WHICH IS MUCH SAFER then if that fault current flows through your ticker grrrrrrrr. BUT THAT SYSTEM REQUIRES 3 WIRES YA REALIZE!!!!!!!!!!!! If only two and a short goes to the case fault current can seek a path through you instead of the third wire SORRY IM GOING WITH THE SAFER THIRD WIRE so fault current is in it instead of my heart, but you do as you please
Im here to help not fight or argue and since I know for a scientific fact (based on education and 40 years in the field) the current more modern NEC 3 wire system is safer, I choose for my home and family to use it.
I respect your choice and expect you in return to respect mine. Use whatever method you desire, no fight from me its your home and your life!!!
God Bless you and best wishes
