In Response To: safe wire sizes (Ray L'Dera)

Ray,

If I had one, I'd scan it and send it to you... Don't know off hand where one might be, but a search of the web would no doubt turn up a table somewhere. Or you could stop by a Graybar maybe and ask for a catalog or maybe one of the manufacurers would have some freebies laying on the counter.

I usually don't work any smaller than 14 gauge for anything (15amp)except maybe for a lamp... In that case you are using a 250 watt bulb at best, which is about 2 amps (watts/volts). I'd say basic lamp cord would work, but I'll see if I can find a chart.

Error to the safe side!

Don
