I am the electrician WITHOUT HIS CODE BOOK. I was look for some quick help to avoid an extra trip to the job site. Stanfortyman, why can't you give a simlpe answer? I have read several of your post and none have been helpful to the question asked. Why do you even bother?
Don't bother replying, I won't use this post again with people like this out there.
Well then why don't you state this from the start. People can be so evasive when asking for help. THAT is why I sometimes don't give a straight answer.
If you are still interested post back. If not then have fun.
