Looks like they didn't even have a bunch tool.
Or didn't know which blade they had in it................. :rofl:

Of coarse I do like the way they left the nails or sheetrock screws, so you can hang your buttset. smile

Looks like someone was picking through the trash when I ripped one of those structured wiring panels off a customer's wall.

At least they were consistant on reversing the tip and ring.

I wish i had taken a picture of this: a friend of mine asked me to come fix his phone line in his house. His dad had wired the house - with silver satin - while it was being built. He had troubles stripping the wire to put electrical marettes on so he used wood screws in a stud in the furnace room. He stripped the wire as best he could, wrapped the silver satin around each screw and tightened them to the stud.
his complaint: his internet was flakey and telephone calls had a hum or static on it...
Classic DIY.

So I accompanied a friend who was getting a tattoo the other night...and found this nice install job!

The breaker panels are pretty cool though! Wonder if that is up to code smile

Can't say much about the wiring (typical one or two line quicky install by the looks of it), but the painted panels are wicked cool!

Not quite - the #5 cable is using the green and orange, for line 1, and probably the w/g and w/o for line 2!

Wrong! Everybody knows that Blue/Brown is the recommended pair for line 2. The whites are the neutrals. They should be twisted together and put into a big yellow wire nut.

Jeff twist 2-3 with a jumper to the next 2-3 with a jumper to the next 2-3 with a jumper to the next 2-3 with a jumper to the...ad nauseum. And remember, these are NUETRALS, so the jumpers must be CLEAR speaker cable. And only grounded at the breaker panel. Just knock out a KNOCKOUT, and run the wire in, no strain relief/cable clamp needed. smile John C.

If you do not have the correct sized wire-nut, use duct tape.

Fired, or fried...whatever.
