Great! Sometimes I get carried away. I get so used how some of our ground support shipment is
built. I just end up thinking it should be the same on the brewery. I doubt I'll abuse my
brewery as much ...

wire inside the panel with a strain relief, 2) leave the female end on and create a pigtail
cord out of the...

So I've realized I made an error when I bought my 50 amp extension cord for the control panel
