Today Ken showed up and started tearing wires out of our old Federal Pacific breaker panel. If you have a panel made by them, you might want to look into replacing it with one that will work properly.
Here we are with all the wires re-attached to the new panel, and everything works!
All set to go with labels on everything, it's all done except for the bill and the tears.
To fully appreciate the rest of this yarn, you need to go look at this post. (the part about wires....) Then return and finish this story.....
I finished putting in the underground wire to the new garage last October, early in the month. I contacted a local electrician to get a new panel and breakers, along with scheduling the install of both. Meanwhile this is the power feed to the garage...
It snakes through the yard (where it almost got sheared off during a snowplowing episode last winter), over to the garage...... hmmm.... no electrician yet.
where I mowed off the wire once this spring!! Where's that darned electrician???!!!
in through the window,
feeding extension cords galore.....
ending at the breaker panel (full of breakers, but no power in the big wires yet.....)
Today the wire from the new panel in the house was terminated in the garage breaker panel!!! No wonder Ken looked so happy in that second picture... it only took 10 months to get the panel and put it in. But who's keeping track??
I gotta go, Carlo
