Well instead of getting your nose bent out of shape now, don't you think it would have been beneficial to let us know this from the start???

So instead of teaching you they want you to get an electrician to help you with your homework.

Questions about service entrance


Normally if you post questions like that, people think you are trying to avoid learning by practice or by reading the code book. It's way easier to get help if you lay out the whole story rather than posting a list of questions without an explanation.

Most of the questions around here are by homeowners trying to solve problems in their own homes, so these kinds of questions are a little out of the ordinary.

Questions about service entrance


hi john, do not be affended. i read your post and got a laugh out of the replies. we have to have so humour in life. the main message was clear. people are concerend about your safty! also i know nothing about electical and want to relocate my mast and up grade my service to 200 amps. some of the question you asked i know the answer to because i did some internet searches first. so i thing what people expect is more specific questions once you have done your homework and research yourself. simply because it won't work with general questions. you can't expect to have a vonunteer help system where anyone will spend time to answer things like: how do you build a house? this is of course an exageration but i hope you will see the point. everyone on here is wanting to help others as it is give and take. i hope you will continue learning as then you can help someone out too. good luck brenda
