This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report:
An incident that shows how useless the current non-system of inspecting drawing designated electrical bonds at PSD is illustrated by the following:
I stamped in on a "job complete" inspection on the call sheet for (name), 747/767 EBU mechanic (I believe the job number and unit was N93114A on RM245 POS 4). There was an electrical bonding inspection that wasn’t yet bought off, so I got the M1 meter and went to the EBU to do my usual "witness" (by doing the resistance test myself) of the electrical bonding of the two jumpers on the two valves of the 14th stage duct installation that were the subject of the inspection operation.
(The noted mechanic) was right there, and as I hadn’t looked at the drawing yet, I asked him what the resistance requirement was on the two jumpers that he installed all of the time. He said, "I don’t know." I did the testing and looked up the requirement on the drawing. They were within requirements. I bought the inspection.
So much for the theory that, even though inspectors at PSD do not (except for the few inspectors like me) do the required testing of designated bonds (and instead roller stamp the buyoffs), that no one should worry, as the shop mechanics "self-inspect" them to make sure these critical bonds are per drawing requirements, anyway.
