I've worked with it for 20+ years and it still scares me. Had an old professor who actually helped develop some of the first radar guidance systems tell me that if I ever lost my fear of it....it was time to get out of the profession.

I've seen some crazy destructive shit.....I mean we are talking about colliding electrons here.

This is the ticket for sure when it comes to home electrical work. Find the lowest bidder you can possibly find. You'll definitely want to watch them in action, to get new ideas for cost cutting tips. These guys are like magicians at finding ways to cut corners, so they can still make a profit on a job they underbid. They'll probably knock off $50 by using your extension cord for the 'underground buried conduit', instead of buying one themselves at the nearby Home Depot.

Cost cuttings are usually the fault of the home owners who get like 10 different quotes and pick one where they can save $5 dollars more.

I do some electrical work.....some people are just ridiculous
