Critique My Jbox


I think I've gotten pretty good at making up a junction box and making it clean/organized inside... What do you guys think?

I know it's only 2 14/2 but I'm still practicing

Why the pigtail and the crimp? Why not just bond the ground to the box?

The only other way I know of that it could be done is to wrap one of the ground wires around the ground screw and then twist just the two together. I prefer a pigtail.

Yes, I used the C24. It's not for sale! It's one of my favorite electrical tools

You can get them on ebay for a decent price. That's where I got mine.
