    I have wired quite a few houses and I never had an inspector ask me what I was going to plug in to a wall outlet. They just don't care. It is not part of their responsibility. All the local codes I...

    I don't know about Canada, but in the US, much of the NEC is written for industrial applications rather than domestic plug in installations. The NEC does not always apply to home shop environments....

    As far as I can tell, the post only insulted one person and that is the original poster. There are times when confronting someone with the truth is the kindest thing you can do, even if it does not...

    I would say that a business like this would never make it in the marketplace but I said the same thing several years ago about a shop that specialized in selling coffee for $4 a cup. :rolleyes:

    The device you linked to has a maximum travel of 24 inches. That limits the length of material you are going to be able to measure pretty severely. For me, that would not be adequate.
