I wired a shed with 230v but failed to extend a gnd wire.
After checking the gnd continuity the length of the metal conduit from the garage source box, I added a gnd wire, attached it to the metal conduit and extended it to the shed receptacles and checked for gnd with my (yes working) 3 lamp wiring tester.
Still no gnd.
Well I was once again reminded that to have a ground you must have continuity.
I took the double receptacle apart again and discovered my grd lead had pulled free from the grounding terminal connection.
Prob. solved, simple solution.
