Ain't that the damn truth.....will license & permit you to death. a reply to: rickymouse
I hired my cousin when I did jobs, he was a master electrician and I worked with him doing the work and I had almost enough time in to get my
journeyman card. The electrical inspector knew my work, I was extremely fussy and he could actually tell I did a job because of my super fussiness.
He was going to sign for the rest of my hours if I took some of the classes for continued education that they were forced to give so I could finish
getting my card.
There was a change made though, there had to be evidence of a money trail, the problem was, the money trail went the wrong way, I just paid my cousin
for what he earned, deducting my labor. I made way less than he did per hour because I was so fussy. So the money trail went the wrong way. He did
not have Insurances because he was working as a mine inspector full time so I actually absorbed his liability under my policies. I am happy to have
the knowledge of how to do that stuff and the knowledge of all the codes. I was so close to taking the test, I was studying three phase power and
some of the advanced stuff to take the certification test and just to understand thoroughly how high energy transmission works. Discussing this stuff
with him and talking about phase conversion gain was so interesting I wanted to know how. So no license, well I really did not need another paper
hanging on the wall anyway, I had all the work I wanted to do anyway.
I checked out what he said about a phase converter. You can make more energy with that than you use to power your home with the induced phase
