You are very welcome. Remember though other electricians provided a lot of information on this thread. Many of them work and do not have the time I have to go somewhat farther with an explanation. They deserve credit also, so lets don't forget them. Since we are on the subject I'll post a panel that has the more common buss configuration on the market today. Square d QO is rather unique in design. As you can see the same logic is happening with this buss design.

Stubbie, everytime I give an off the cuff answer, you've got a dissertation with three or more references. You deserve the credit. Your explanations are always on and the images are a huge help. Keep up the good work!

Question about sharing nuetral (as in 12/3) wire


Thanks for the kind words Goose. I do what I do with one goal in mind and that is to have a high level of respect for this forum by those who use it. Respect comes from understanding that for the most part we are dealing with homeowners who have or are having the same struggles in life as we have been through. In other words we put our pants on the same as they do. Not all people can afford to hire professional help so they come here to this forum out of necessity. If they come here for help it tells me they are interested in safety and a job done right. So I intend to help them to the best of my ability. Educating is a big part of helping... you must understand what your looking at and why you are doing what your doing this is because homeowners don't know what they don't know. In fact I think all of us fall into that category. So lets carry on.
