Take a look at that power strip, what do you think?

He claims the motor has 2hp and he runs it along with his DC. That looks to me to be a heater next to the machine.

I don't think the heater is on the floor. I think it is on the wall with everything plugged into it. smiley=slap.gif

That looks like an oil-filled radiator beside the machine.  His next fart might be his last.

he has that mess, and he attributes the power outage to overly sensitive state of the art breakers???? I have no issue with power strips, but regardless of how many outlets you have, you still cannot exceed the amp rating of the breaker, or it will trip (hopefully before the fire starts)

if he runs everything that is plugged into that strip at the same time, he better have 911 on speed dial.  if the built in fuse don't blow first, the strip wire will. smiley=shake head.gif smiley=shake head.gif smiley=shake head.gif smiley=shake head.gif smiley=shake head.gif

Thanks. I needed that.

This guy called me a "smug know it all" because I warned him of the danger.

Most if not all insurance companies wouldn't even pay out a claim if the power strip was the cause of the fire.

But the power strip wouldn't be the cause.  The cause would be STUPIDITY! smiley=slap.gif
