To move this scenerio one step further, since this would be typical in old work rewiring, you are of course also assuming this is a 240 volt circuit and in all the residences that I have inspected it is common to find this scenerio in 120 volt circuits with a single feed, branching off to feed multiple devices.
Sorry Mike, not enough information to find the problems with this circuit, or in this case circuits if I am correct about where you are heading with this scenerio.
I believe you two boys should just kiss and make up, this is a big playground which certainly has enough room for all of us, including you two. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
While you both have different methods, both of your postings cause inspectors to think about what they are doing and even sometimes why they are doing it.
