I have found the main lugs scorched on a couple of recent jobs. What caused this? Are electricians working with hot wires and playing with fire?

Mr. O is on to something. Did these places have hardwood floors or blown in insulation? I have seen several floor sanders and a couple of blower rigs that were set up to clamp on rather than plug in. Contractors are a special breed.

...or like the shyster builder in our town whose guys were tiptoeing over to the occupied house next door and pulling extension cords and water hoses from there. They got busted by the irate occupant.
