    It's just like with a hose pipe.
    What I want to know, is what parallel aching is?
    I've heard of achey breakey heart, is it achey breaky wire?

    Thinking logically, resistance will only increase in that area if the CSA of the conductor is reduced as a result of the bend, kink or compression. Sounds like a good experiment that John Ward could do a video on.

    Don't forget, it's only 110V in the USA.
    Much harder to get 110V to go round bends than 230V.

    Don't be silly. At 110V there are less volts in the same size cable so more room for them to move around.

    Must admit the amount of pulling and twisting of the cable around that staple wouldn't have done too much good.

    Are those fencing samples they've used?
    Why not just nail the sucker right through the middle, you wouldn't have it slipping about like that ...

    I know mate it doesn't make any sense, mind you nothing the American trades do does, I worked there from time to time, and often had to go away and shake my head and have a good laugh, most of the American Electrician I came across used to get all their stuff from their equivalent of B&Q "Home Depot" and you must know what our sheds are like.

    Oh dear, I had heard it was a bit Wild West. Mind you, after your mad Russians a while back, I saw a couple of local boys melting spanners etc on their living room floor the other day ... amazing it didn't end in tears.
    BTW - auto spellcheck helped me (not) with turning staples into samples - oops.

    That wouldn't be Photonicinduction by any chance? I would worry about it if it was him, he's a very clever man, if a bit mental!
