rewiring overhead light fixtureJ


Just bought a lovely brass overhead "luminaire" on eBay. "AfterSunset" by Lightolier. Five bulb sockets. Needs total rewiring. Assuming we use five 50 W incadescent, what size wire?

Ah hah, found that amapcity tables exist for fine wires sizes. We'll use AWG 18 unless someone suggests otherwise.
