I gave up and hired someone to wire our new house after hearing from some locals on how they have had to deal with the local Washington state eletrical inspector. Glad, I did. There ahave been alot of changes since I last wired a house. Plus, his price was very reasonable and with no "hidden charges".
What I did see him use was a crimp style wire nut, like they have for #18-24 wire, as in phones, etc. But these were for #12 and #14 wire. He says they are even better than wire nuts and you know when they are crimped right. Which means, no more potential light flickers. And, boy do they leave alot more room in the box. I just now need to find some that are large enough for #10 and #12 THHN stranded wire since this is what I will be using to wire my shop with
Any body have additional input on these suckers??
