Bundled ground wires

Is this correct? How can all these wires be properly grounded? Code reference? This is the first time I have seen this.

Also on the same job. Does anybody have a shingle stretcher?

Listed or labelled gizmos have to be installed in accordance with their listing or labelling instructions.

That split bolt is listed. I guarantee that its instructions don't say to install 47 bajillion wires in it.

The snap on EMT clamp isn't being used properly either.

a municipal inspector would never pass that ground

Maybe not where you live. We have a guy that barks out what's wrong from the front seat of his Cadillac that has his name on the plates. The reason he stays in his car is he's literally too fat to walk around a building site. Climbing a ladder or inspecting footings hasn't happened since he gained the last 250 lbs.

For builders in his jurisdiction the only hurdle is to make the parts of the house that can be seen from the car look compliant.

The builders know it and I wish I was exaggerating.

I vote that Jim K participate in the next code rewrite.

That is pretty damned hard to misinterpret.

It would have been more effective if I'd spelled labeling correctly.
