Stuff happens but an error like that in these parts is punishable by hangin’ as you well know. evil grin
I may have to stand corrected. Upon further investigation and you getting me to question this I may have my interpretation wrong but I would still call them on it. Maybe this will be addressed in '08 NEC. Good work my friend!
Here’s a news letter with diagram. scroll down http://www.mikeholt.com/newsletters.php?action=display&letterID=191
NEC DOES NOT require structural studs or sheet metal framing members bonding but it is a “good idea” I guess the sparkies around here have common sense and know this and I look for the bond attachment anyway.
It has yet become a point of contention and most would cave once logic and the code section was produced, not having the rest of the commentary.
Another example of the CODE being the least you can get away with.
I’ll get a photo of the bond connector next time I’m out there, but all the phase houses I had contracted are finished now. I should be setting up 1 year warranty appointments this summer.
