    An a journeyman electrician, my first thought was "Where's the UL stamp?" Otherwise that's some nice problem solving.

    Where I'm at most folks don't even run their wiring in conduit you should see some of the nightmare wiring in many of the barns and houses around here.
    years ago I was wiring up one of my 25 or 30 hp power units this was overseas so I pulled 5 wires since I needed a common for the controlling aspect of it. one of the guys asked me why I pulled a green wire since my conduit was steel. Rather than go into a lengthy explanation about proper Earthing I just said because I have green wire then pointed to the non conductive PVC flex conduit inside of the power unit.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Such comments prove maybe electrical work, compared to other utilities [not gas] and general trades, has more unaware fiddling about that becomes hazardous. Old saying applies; a little knowledge is dangerous.
