Why Are Electricians Arrogant?.....really? and your telling me that you have never made fun of the sort of work that passes for "carpentry" done by electricians? (or plumbers for that mater). the work you are doing is what a first year apprentice is expected to learn in the first 6 months on the job with the exception that they are expected to have and know how to use a bender to do far more than just make a 90* bend on 1/2" emt. electricians get the big bucks for knowing how to calculate loads including motor loads , set up complex logic control circuits , make complex bends on all conduit including s40 "ridged" up to 1-1/4" by hand , use hydraulics to bend up to 4" and most important of all be able to trouble shoot any kind of circuitry currently in use including the aforementioned logic control circuits. i get that you are being tongue in cheek but lets be real you are the one being arrogant when you knowingly represent home owner DIY work as being on par with what an experienced journeyman should be capable of doing with the same job (functional vs. art). i don't go around claiming that my wood butchery is representative of what you are capable of doing in spite of the fact that electricians are technically part of the carpentry trade so please don't belittle my specialty TY.

@Quinn Warman yeah. Again, not a criticism, but coming from Aus, the whole idea of using metal conduit and GPOs is just weird. For Aus and NZ, they have to be plastic so they don't conduct in the case of a short to the case.

The Dewalt Tough System is great, I got myself the wallmount rack and have a box, a twin drawer until, and that sorting unit. It's even better if you're a contractor since they make a wheeled rack that you can stick the units onto to travel them around. They're just HDPE, but they're thick and heavy enough for you to stand on if you need an extra bit of verticality when working.

I've ran electricians off my jobs and did the electrical myself. It was easier for me to do it than argue with a pompous electrician. I make sure my jobs are 100% for inspection versus fighting and begging the electrician to do it right and on time. Don't get me wrong I've worked with great electricians but have had my share of bad experiences with over inflated egos of sparkys.

Permanently keeping batteries in chargers may not be the best idea, depending on the charger: Some keep topping the LiIo battery from time to time. That deteriorates them quicker. Also, keeping the battery in while the charger is off may, very slowly, discharge the battery. Again, depends on the charger design...

After being a master electrician for 10 years owning my company as well as working with many other skilled professional Tradesmen electricians do kind of act like the white collar construction workers the thing is I would equal this trade to having a bachelor's degree just to be a journeyman electrician 4 years of education plus on-the-job training and if you want to keep going a total of 6 years before you can take a master's test once you're a master we can go ahead and get your contractor's license to be a electrical contractor at this point you have most likely 6 to 10 years of your life invested very similar to someone with a master's degree with a wealth of knowledge these people are extremely educated as opposed to a painter or a roofer that work really hard they can come right out of high school and get to work with no education or credentials that is a good idea why electricians might be snobs or arrogant for your information

Another good trade is a concrete saw/core drill/wall saw operator. I did it for 6 years before being laid off at the economic turn down of 2009. It’s not “clean” work, you come home filthy, but it’s challenging and you get paid really well.

I’m a master Electrician in multiple states and I would encourage you to push the trade to your younger listeners. I would like to do a visit to your shop and talk about the the Trade and teach some basic skills. I make tech videos for other tradesman that get 100’s of thousands of views. High tech issues but effective. Would be fun. I’m only a hope, skip and a jump from you in North Dakota. Blessings 🙏

Brother your doing great. Next time spend the $20 to get yourself a half inch bender. Your 90 deg and offsets can easily be learned with a couple of sticks of pipe and a calculator. Looks so much nicer and in the end is way more secure for the long haul. All those set screws and coupling and offset will loosen up over time and you will have issues. It’s really not that hard to learn conduit bending and once you get it. You will really love the results. Bless you brother 🙏

Don't forget! REAL Electricians do industrial work and get very dirty depending on the day we use shovels, lift and carry heavy material up and down countless flights of stairs. You will be exhausted yet happy at the end of the day you have made the world a better place. Electrician is a title and a lifestyle not just a job, until I die I will be an Electrician! Electrical work is also an art form that most people will never see. We are the first on the job and the last to leave general contractors come to us for advise, so we get a little arrogant it's our culture and we love it!🖖

I use to work for the phone company. Retired lineman. I’d help splicers cut in Hi-cap lines. If I remember right, they carried a 178 volts over them. Problem was in a splice that had upwards of 2400 pairs of cable, you never knew which was circuit or which wasn’t. Touching or resting the under part of your arm on one or often several would bite. Even a basic phone line when it would ring, the current over it would make your heart feel like exploding. SCE guys, household or business electricians would call us low voltage workers. I’d always offer those ones that made the comment to let me pick a pair to hold on to. In 22 years I never had a taker. Now for you that are going to make comments about telephone lineman not climbing as high as electrical linemen. No true. We have poles that are all the height of power poles climbed on a regular basis. In fact phone guys even cable tv guys out climb power guys everyday. We also transfer heavier equipment than power company lineman do. Cross arms are the norm for both. A power lineman never used equipment as heavy as a cable lasher that needed transferred from one side of the pole to another and done as many times as there were poles in a run. Today they use cranes and helicopters for everything including setting poles. Even in rear property or on hillsides. Phone companies had and have no such luxuries. We block n tackled and pole dollied everything.

The way you used that offset is an interesting solution. Electricians don't use them that way because we should know how to bend conduit for a cleaner look. I say should because I know some are better than others.

Every time you said you won't kill yourself it reminded me of a helper I fired because not once but twice he turned on a breaker to check something. The first time knocked me off a ladder from the shock and the second time he lit my panel up like a christmas tree. He told me he turned the panel on to check his work because he didnt think he needed me to check it first. I told him he would never have to worry about me checking his work again. I would say people with common sense would not kill themselves, but then how much of that do we see in the world today.

8:54 This trick was definitely learned from an electrician. For those of you that do this, don’t worry, the low voltage guys will measure your box so that we can hang ours the same height as yours. An electrician will say “just eyeball it”, no, we’ve done that once already.

A helpful tip. Do not cut thin wall with a saw. Use a tubing cutter but do not cut completely through. Then snap the two pieces apart and you don't even have to ream the end of the pipe.

Please dont teach electrical work. Seriously. You don't know enough about it to teach it and you will end up hurting someone besides yourself. If you want to know how to do something just ask me and I will be more than happy to show you how to do it the correct safe way. Buy yourself a bender and try not to work step and fetch. Have the confidence to put that second screw in the box and finish things while you are there. Put things in and finish them on your way back by laying your materials out right where you need them as you use them. If I were to shingle a roof I would be smart to have the building supply boom the shingles to the ridge where I need them rather than running them up and down a ladder all day. If you can of course. To answer your question we are arrogant because West Coast guys run around saying how easy electrical work is and when you watch them actually do it it is painful to see. The only one more pained to see this work would be your local electrical inspector. When he sees all of those manufactured offset connectors that just screams hack cheap homeowner. So stop wasting your money buying saws too big for you and spend some on getting a real electrician. LOLOLOL.

I didn't see any proof of electrician arrogance. I did see a lot of crappy pipework though. A new bender costs about $20 and the directions are embossed on the side. I guess buying pre-bent 90s and offsets is less arrogant than doing the job right. How arrogant of me for being able to make pipework that looks like a professional did the job, not a wannabe.

There is only two professions that i know of where people seem to have this belief that with very limited, to even no training, and even less experience, they some how know just as much or more than the guy who spent years in school, and even more time actually doing it. Those two professions are electrician and auto mechanic. I am not a electrician, however i am a auto mechanic, and i totally get their frustration. The problem arises that yes, by and large the job can be done by someone with minimal training, and even less experience, and even done in a manner in which it works. The problem is there always comes a time in which one is to far in over their head, and due to stupidity, arrogance, or laziness they simply don't realize that is the case. The problem is when it comes to this point, it being right, and it being done wrong can and will make the difference between someone quite literally living and dyeing. I get wanting to do some of the work on your own, and I even applauded one for taking the time and initiative to learn the skill and actually do it. I always say you can never have time knowledge. I also get wanting to save money. But please, please learn to recognize when your in over your head, and don't be to ashamed, or embarrassed to admit it and call for help.

The "slug" is the bit of material that comes out the hole. The feature of having a partially punched hole, with the "slug" retained by the little tab of steel, is called a "knockout". Its basically saving you from having to drill a hole in the panel, which is especially beneficial when the panel is live and you really dont want metal shavings floating around in there.

If I were a Electrician I would love your comment about this trade. Cody, since you have done many types of jobs it sure makes adding your own wire through the conduit boxes is very easy and some of us who have never tackled this kind of project but willing to learn then some of the brave guys will succeed and hopefully feel good about making the effort to try something new. I personally need a patient person who will work with me and correct me when I make a mistake. I love watching Wranglerstar videos. God’s blessings to you and your family.👍

Hello I do electric work. Another way to do this is a raceway or large Condit (3/4" and up) near top wall straight line through 4 square junction boxes (tie each to ground and drop down conduit to switches and outlets. No bending and everything is square!. Yee Ha! Though box fill and number circuits in pipe come into play so with out a dive off deep end, in basic if you stay at 9 wire (use common ground that leaves 8) you get 4 circuits. In addition if you have room you can drop or push up pipe through header of wall if you want it recessed. My 2 cents.
