You do know how to do a Google search ?

I joined this forum just over a year ago
I bought my 2005 NEC after buying this house
It's really not hard to find this information on the web

I bought the Handbook, 50% more pages then the normal code book
I needed the visuals

Care to share what electrican, inspector or other Pro said you could use it & it met code ?
If you didn't find anything that said you could use it that should have told you it is not an accepted use

Ok, I ALMOST stand corrected.

I've been able to get to the web site, and they do have some sort of information available on line. I see at the following link what looks like it could be a code reference (which seems odd they would give it for free, yet try to get you to pay for a PDF copy).
http://www.nfpa.org/freecodes/free_a....asp?id=7008SB

But when I try to open the document on my Vista Computer (yea, I know, I prefer XP and 7 myself, but that's what came with this computer), the browser crashes.

I use Vista, IE8.0 & the same site - no problems
I use the online version
You must enable pop-ups as it opens another window
Cookies must also be enabled

It's not that I couldn't find anything that said I could, I couldn't find ANYTHING one way or the other.

The only exception was J-B Weld's web page that lists using J-B Weld on conduit and specifically indicates that it's not electrically conductive.

So actually, I found some information that suggested I could use it, and found nothing that indicated you couldn't.

A web-site is not an Inspector, electrician or a Pro telling you it is an accepted use

So you asked on multiple sites, no-one said it was an accepted use
Yet you used it anyways....?

Where do you get that I've been asking this question on multiple sites, and actually, at the very beginning of this discusion at least one other person seemed to think it might be acceptable (remember RegeSullivan).


Like I've said... do a Google search on "J-B Weld conduit" and you get this thread, the J-B Weld web site, and then everything else is irrelevant other pages.


BTW, I'll once again point out that the majority of opinions was that it wouldn't be acceptable. No one could site code (at least that sounded convencing from a legalistic stand point) that said you could not. I had already used the J-B Weld before someone managed to site code that sounded convensing (to me at least).

Do you want me to repost the question from Pro-DIYER & your response to him that you are posting on multiple boards ?
One person....out of how many ? And was he an Inspector, Pro or an electrician ?

So after multiple Pros said not to use it you went ahead & used it anyways

hooku, they are available from the copyright holder at the NFPA website

(please, let's stay away from the copyright argument)
No. Scuba Dave did not get ripped off. I keep getting offers for the NEC 2005. (Which is the Code in effect for NYC at the present time) All are in the range of $100.00!! (The YES Smily is to confirm that what I say is the truth.)

I said THIS question.

Yes, there have been OTHER questions that I have asked in more than one forum. My recent question regarding 3-way/4-way switches comes to mind. I had to ask the question in three places (usually trying to be more specific each time I asked) before someone could explain WHY you can't legally wire a 3-way/4-way switch using only 14/2.

I think that horse is already dead. To see and understand my reasoning, read over this thread: http://www.diychatroom.com/f18/j-b-w...x9/#post393705 But I'll warn you, allocate a little time, that thread already takes more than 8 pages.

for just a code book it is way too much but Dave said he bought the handbook. I paid $51 for my 05 so yes, if he had bought just the NEC book, he over paid.

here is from Amazon. $67 and they have other from other vendors as low as $55 for a new 05 NEC.

http://www.amazon.com/National-Elect...5166636&sr=1-1

so, there is your get rich scheme sparky. Buy up a bunch at $55. Sell them for $75-$80. Do that 1000 times and you have $20,000.
