    Here's how I do field wires & pigtails.

    And here is how I do it.


    Not as pretty, but a lot quicker to service.

    Without a color call-out and/or numbers, I would not want to
    wade into that box. In mine, the pigtail & spare wires can be
    removed/moved out of the way for service. Looks like you've
    only got two runs of wire, I've got five of 13-strand. :p
  4. That is what $1500 a zone gets you...attention to detail...

    Thank you. My technique was motivated by my early days when I just
    did service & I discovered the "rat's nest" of wiring where I was worried
    to touch ANY wire for fear of screwing up the whole system. Long after
    I'm gone, someone can service my wiring. :)

    I would appreciate your work if servicing that box in 20 years, or installing a new... Looks nice.

    mikes systems don't need controllers.
  9. Hey B I got an IPhone. Most awesome instrument I've dealt with. Tried a Palm Centro and it s-cked, then went military grade nextel/sprint which was okay but very limiting, finally I dumped Sprint and went IPhone and am hooked. Best phone ever. I was at the end of my sprint contract so I was determined to fight throw this phone thing and not just settle for something. Hopefully AT&T service is good.
