SE comes copper though not typical.

I just can not imaging a SE in a situation to use it. Individual conductors would seem to be the rule of the day.

M-D line eh? I always loved this tune and worked out a bass line to play along with a few years ago.

SE cable in general? All the older homes in this region are powered by overhead lines and more often than not Al SE cable is used in the instillation. Service masts are the exception, the run being conduit, of course.

DOH!........... My own place is wired with SER from the meter stack to the panel in my garage......... I must have had a blond moment.

Don't we all:eek:
I have done work in Wilkes-Barre Pa, where conduit rules, according to local codes. Way back when, a conduit plant must have been located within the city limits, methinks.:rolleyes:
