Re: 85 Home Beers Down The Sink

Re: 3" Flute Build

When you use one of phases with ground to make 120 just remeber if that devices catches fire you will not be protected very well, t will catch fire before tripping the breaker.
Some people hook up their washing machines to one phase of dryer plug, not very good idea.
