I sent one of the questions. Is it something you are able to answer?

Expert:  Donna Kakonge replied 4 months ago.

Dear Customer,

I am glad you sent this ahead of time. No, I cannot answer these types of questions. I am not an Expert at Electrical-orientated information. I will opt out so that another Expert can help you.

Thank you for your time.

Alright thanks anyway

Hello,I am a retired mechanical engineer with 56 years in this business. I will go in depth with you, and up to a 24 hour time limit.

All I ask is please select the ***RATING LINK*** at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site.

Rating does not affect your charges nor ability to refund if not satisfied. If you can agree to that, lets continue by all means.

Answer is D.. .0250"

Because that is listed as the 'floating gap for item #1


If you do not mind I will comment on the quality and calibre of the test and who wrote it.... after 56 years in the business and consulting for engineering firms and manufacturing firms nation wide, the test drawing leaves room for speculation, and fails to show in unmistakeable terms which gap is being discussed (clearances is the proper term in these cases not 'gap').... this is not even slightly what you will find in the field, such a draftsman or engineer who approved it would be fired.

Having said that, and with long experience I can guarantee an 80% positive score.. but will probably provide a 90% plus score... its not 100% because there is no telling what sort of non standard off the wall approach will be taken by this course developer... its something that you would see from an inexperienced academic with no real world experience what so ever... even then it is inexcusable.

Let me know if you want to continue with me or not, we can go from there
