    Yes, but it does need to be correctly identified as non-grounded and the circuit needs its own neutral. I can't tell what the rest of the circuit is by the picture.

    I think Vern misunderstood the wiring you described and the pic is ???.
    There is no rule prohibiting using only one pole of a double pole breaker to power a 120 volt circuit.

    You should try using an old fashioned camera with a flash. You will catch more defects with a flash, I guarantee it.

    Thanks for tip on a flash. I'll try to remember that next time my camera breaks randomly.

    How "old fashioned"?

    Glass plate?

    Brownie?

    35 mm film?

    Digital?

    Cellphone ("newer" ones have a flash)?

    I use an instamatic 110 with flash cube
    But my Polaroid swinger is good when I want to see the picture now.

    The "yes" was in response to the original question; the rest of the response was to nudge him into looking a little deeper!
