Recently, the power went out in my shop. Checked the breaker box and sure enough the breaker to the shop had blown (Is that the technical term?...) So I reset it and noticed some fireworks..... Ok not really, but all the lights in the shop turned on briefly despite being in the "off" position, followed shortly by a loud crack and no power. The light just outside the front door actually caught on fire and partially shattered. I called an electrician and he found a tiny problem...the power box below, which runs 220v from my house to the shop, had worn through the rubber and insulation of the wire, sending 220v into EVERYTHING. You see that plastic threaded hole the cord is coming out of? That wasn't there before he fixed it. The metal opening is what wore into the wire. You can see the burn marks on the wall and box. So he fixed that problem...but all is not well in Zion. The shop lights behave like strobe lights unless I have all of them on at the same time. The outlets don't deliver the same power as before. For instance a drill will only operate at about half speed. I tried Google but couldn't find another instance of this happening, so here I am on the best wealth of information on the 'net, asking for a diagnosis and hopefully an inexpensive solution (I love to kid myself...) Do I: a) need to replace the entire wiring, outlets, shop light fixtures, etc? b) perhaps, pretty please, only need to replace the outlets? c) burn the shop down, collect insurance, and build new shop? Seriously though any thoughts on what needs to be done would be helpful. I keep telling myself I'm mentally prepared for (a), but we'll see.
