What's going on here then?
I've seen this video a few times and even discussed it on here ages ago the one thing that stands out is that the bloke filming it can't half rabbit I mean he never shuts up. I've seen an aftermath foto the top of the pole is crispy and black but you can clearly see where new cables are crimped onto the old one
yes, those flying crimps about 18 inches out from the pole with the curly wurleys as strain relief are really something. Its one thing to get the power on quickly for the night, its another not to come back and renew the burnt off overheads at any point in the next 5 years I hope they are all TT and not PME at the end of those as there is no evidence off double crimped neutrals.
Planting a new pole alongside and transferring the harness is something that is done live on ABC round here when a pole fails and can be quite quick,
Telegraph Poles ? yes we called them that in the 60s and 70s even though we were they were in fact telephone wire poles, Telegraphs are not really common now as indeed they were not common back then but I think the name stuck. Like Hoover for vacuum cleaner and megger for insulation tester. I think it`s like my Grandma`s Electric Gas-Ovens, Electric Gas-Lamps and Race Hoss Dogs
