Knob and tube attic fire

February 4th, 2011 No comments

Called out to do a quote this past week on an attic fire caused by incorrectly spliced knob and tube wiring that was illegally covered with insulation.  It is not permissible to have knob and tube wiring covered with insulation.  These folks were lucky they were home or they would have lost this 100 year old farm house.

HD projector install

We did this HD projector install a few weeks back.  Not the best reference picture in the world (took it with my iphone in a dark room) but you get the idea.  The image size on this screen is 150″ – full 1080P HD.

I did a kiln service call this week and we found this. You are looking at a 240 volt 60 amp element stack held together by aluminum ground bars. One small bump an this whole thing is gonna blow.  Oh, just to add some suspense – this kiln is in use at a school.

Found this mess in a lighting control panel last week. These type of crimp on terminal connectors don’t work on solid wire.

We just completed this project last week. Retro fit of a new 800 amp service on a 12 unit building. The old service was not installed correctly and failed due to water and rust.

We have worked with many of the potters in the area for kiln installs and repair work. We did this install with vent a few weeks ago.
