Dumb question, how do you twist your wires together?

That would be nice, but in reality, you use what you have on hand. Customers hate paying for travel time. Especially, if they are anxious to get a problem fixed, yesterday!

well, what can I say. I try to keep a decent stock of all the materials I might use in normal work plus, when I am given a job, I try to consider what the job might require so I can grab it before I go to the job.

I can't help it if one does not adequately prepare for a job. I know you can't have everything but until you do, you keep trying to reach that goal.

This is pretty instering thread about wirenuts and how it done for myself I useally pretwist it so it will hold up better however there are very limited spots that I will put a electrique tape on it only spot is useally found in motor peckerhead { motour junction box }

otherwise I go with Polairs connector for peckerhead box set up.

In Europe wirenut is not super widespread as you think it more common to find choc block aka wire termail barrel connector.

As far for Wago connectors it kinda toss up in France we use a bit but Myself I never like it too much if you want to remove that connector.

Merci,Marc
