    Jim,

    I'm pretty sure you cannot shut off a 240v load with a single pole switch. One needs a two pole switch. Such switches exist. Assuming one has a 240v light bulb fed by opposite hots,...

    I have a half inch plastic conduit running between the two buildings for switches.

  3. Why am I certain this is against code?

    So, deep into it again.

    Yesterday tore out a 100 amp pushmatic (bulldog) panel and roughed in a 200 amp Murray.

    There is a large separate garage destined to be a man cave, getting a 50 amp sub...

    Possibly. I was chatting with an inspector and he did sort of hint at that.
  7. 50 amp main breaker panel? No such animal

    Hey guys,

    I'm tasked with installing a sub panel in an out building. The customer does not need more than 50 amps out there, the largest tool he will be using is a 30 amp 240v welder.

    Here's...

    Amusing update on this project.

    The other day I took advantage of the dry weather to work in the first sub panel, which I had told you did not have a discrete, isolated neutral buss bar.

    Good point on the whole multiple path thingy. Obviously true.

    I won't be running around a neighborhood in which I do not live to chase a phantom current. I am satisfied that if the DWP is...
