    Actually, Canuk, your drawing makes much more sense than Jacks. Yours could be wired NEC legal. Unfortunately, Jacks poor, twisted, deranged, nonsensical attempt can not.... But, yes it will work.

    To me it isn't a matter of whether or not it makes more sense ------ rather to illustrate Jack's point. While reading the dicussions and understanding where everyone was coming from, I agreed with Jack's assesment that while one traveller was energized and the other wasn't ---- no return.
    The illustration is easy to vizualize ----- probably a throw back from my days working with ladder diagrams setting up automated controls --- a truth table of sorts.

    Besides ---- you know I can't comment directly regarding NEC stuff

    It will not only work but it does meet NEC.

    Once the traveler is energized it is a return. The second three way is a mute point.

    Yep agreed .... I guess it wasn't presented clearly.


    The second three way is a mute point
    But then and again so would the second traveller that wasn't energized be a moot point.

    Ah, caught on speelling yett again...........

    It would be moot if it was never energized..... But then what would be the point of having the three way?

    ??? We are here for three ways?

    I did not think this was that kind of site. Sorry my friend but I like females and if it is like ordering at McDonalds I'll take two blondes no older than 25. You get a happy meal and a small shake.
