Waterman Posted May 26, 2022 Share Posted May 26, 2022 Have the power company turn off the service, not the way I had to do things when I worked for the State.😬 I had to work the 480V 3phase circuits hot. Not for the faint of heart when the breakers you are working with are 800 and 1200 Amp 3 phase. With those size circuits, we used insulated "bugs" for making connections and if need be, extending the cables. You can use a Morris connector. Not cheap but does what you want. Works with size #14 to size #2 wire. Jackson Electric Supply has them. https://www.jacksonelectricsupply.com/Morris-97017-Black-Insulated-In-Line-Splice-2-Set-p/97017.htm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
