Why in the world would I give information like that out to a person like you??
Uh, you made it sound like a foregone conclusion before.

Give or take a bleep or two.
There was such passion to your statement. I was certain a gentleman of your charisma wouldn't commit an act of deceit, so surely, you're planning on making good on your half of our arrangement. I mean, after all, so far an apprentice and a guy who'd likely still be an apprentice in your state have stepped forward with our cards. I'll be eligible for my journeyman in June. Surely, this doesn't measure up to your 16-year master.
i know how to look up the proper wiring for a 4 way switch too. ( 3 or more switches that control the same light)
I got a new job and one of the tests was to do a 3Way/4way to control two lights.
He had the whole setup on a board and had 7 wires in each box the power came the first switch box and then to the second with the two lights between the four way and the last 3way. I was fun! he was looking over my shoulder the whole time but he was more concerned with quality instead of speed. my first job they only cared about how fast i could go. but at the same time when you say you are going to give someone a raise and you race them making up a 2 gange switch box? Well the journeyman beat me by 30 seconds so i didn't get the raise i guess.
But back to what we should be talking about is moderators. So josh isn't qualified since he only understands the tip of the electrical iceberg. But i don't know jack about maintaining a website. But even a child can figure out who is fake on this sight just by their speech (or lake thereof).

I am not an electrician, I am not a plumber, I am not a carpenter, I am not a contractor, I am not a handyman. On this forum as well as quite a few others I give advice on Electrical, plumbing, carpentry, and general handyman type rerepairs from concrete to roofing. For a living, I build, rebuild, install, and repair overhead cranes and hoists. My knowledge of all types of repair or replacemant work concerning homes and buildings comes from learning and doing. I can completely replumb a house, I can completely rewire a house. I can even wire 3 way and 4 way switches and get them right the first time. If someone asks me how to wire them, I look over the net and find a diagram to post or email them. It is not something that I do enough to be able to just tell them how. If I took the time I could draw them a diagram but with the internet it is not nesc. to do it that way. If some one asks a question about anything, I will post a reply with a reliable answer f I know the answer. otherwise I leave it alone. I have seen many times where someone gives the wrong answer or dangerous advice and I have corrected them before any harm could be done. Just like this forum here, I could care less who is a pro plumber or elect., I only care about the person asking the question getting the right information. If someone post wrong info I will correct them, but without cussing them or calling them names. That sort of stuff serves nobody. There is not one person anywhere on these forums that I would ask to prove they are a proffesional plumber, electrician or anything else. If they give honest, sound advice then they are a pro as far as I am concerned. Over the years I have met a large number of proffesionals that did not know what they were talking about or they did very shoddy work. I don't call them names, I just don't call them, nor would I give them any kind of references. As far as pros or newbies giving advice on these boards, all we can do is give the most accurate information possible. If the person using the info screws it up that is thier problem. They can't come back here and raise heII about the advice recieved because it is in print and can be proven correct. What I am saying here is, that we should all do what we can to help each other with what ever problems we have. Don't slander, blame,accuse, curse anyone for trying, just politely correct them if they make a mistake. OUCH, just fell off my soapbox.
Papadan: I love your oration, but I have a question-Who built that soapbox? Was he/she a professional? Did it have non-skid on the deck? Was there proper railings around it? did you get hurt? Who are you going to name in your lawsuit? :-)http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/ima...ons/icon10.gif
