Re: Transport minister issues new rules for drone operators

I'd be interested where Hon. Marc Garneau gets his stats from. Over the last 4 years I've been working on this file with TC I've gone through CADORS and can only find a few recorded incidents...

Re: New Drone regulations out today in Canada

Thanks, everyone. Still suffering from the leg injury. But hopefully, I'm an example to everyone who, like me, doesn't have accident and injury insurance.

Re: Ventilating roofs over cathedral ceilings

Absolutely Robert, roof edge and ridge venting together are key indicators. However, many times I see Cathedrals with soffits and Roof Rake venting, which of course, if it's properly venting the...

Re: Ventilating roofs over cathedral ceilings

Great info Robert. The problem is identifying if there's a continuous baffle when it's hidden.

You can check for ridge venting, but that doesn't guarantee anything. After all, it's a visible...

Re: Impressive - but stupid!

A number of years ago I worked for Hanson Power & Texas Utilities in the U.K.

Re: Waterproofing a basement from the inside

It amazes me why people say builders make the best home inspectors.

If the builders did their jobs right, we wouldn't need as many Home Inspectors. :cool:

There are three (cost-effective)...

Impressive - but stupid!

Here's a video of a Cutler-Hammer panel fire. This is a licensed electrician.

Just watch him pull the breakers while the panel is still energised.

He's obviously never been exposed to an...

Re: Just because you can

Would be fine if it was a welding machine. It wasn't. It was a lighting stage with camera and audio-video recording consoles.

And no, torquing the clampdown doesn't guarantee sufficient...

Re: GFCI, only built in tester trips

Mike Holt's blog is a fantastic resource for information. More Inspectors should make it a regular read. The reason for the development was to protect people from electrical shock.

Re: GFCI, only built in tester trips

So, If you've ever pinned out a GFCI tester, you'll know that the resistance across the hot and ground with the button pressed in is at least 18 K ohms.

If the circuit you are testing is 120v a/c...

Re: GFCI, only built in tester trips

I get that, but I'm trying, with a great deal of pain it seems, to get to the bottom of something without being nasty.

Re: GFCI, only built in tester trips

OK, I follow you on the energizing of the metal parts, but what current flows, from the ungrounded lug to the ground lug, through a 3-light tester when the GFCI test button, on the tester, is...

Re: GFCI, only built in tester trips

Could you please explain why you think a GFCI receptacle tester will energize a metallic cover plate in an ungrounded receptacle? I'm interested in your logic process.
