Re: buying a pole pig
Original poster: "Dr. Resonance" <resonance@xxxxxxxxxx>
Dip some paper into the oil --- see if it burns.
The opportunity to buy a pole pig just landed in my lap.
This pig was in service recently and was taken down a couple of years
ago when a new road went in.
Do you all think there's any chance it would contain PCBs?
I'm a bit wary of even messing with this sucker, but for $50 I can't
pass it up...unless it's full of PCBs in which case it doesn't seem
like a good idea.
Anything else I should look for? I'll bring a meter with me to test
continuity, but if there's anything else I can try I'd appreciate any
tips. Not sure what the KVA rating it yet, but it's about 3.5 feet tall
so I imagine it's "big".
