Wiring a light with switch....please help!!


I think the poster should buy the LCD or regular light device with push in/out for on/off which use batteries and last like 1000 running hours for his/her application... somthing like that should cost no more than $10 bucks... the solar device recommended above is an overkilled to me...

Hello there,

Electric work is something i don't do much of. Do yourself a favor, go check the code for the job that your going to do and ask around, everybody has a friend that is an electrician. Ask a buddy if you don't know one, most likely you'll find one that will help for for a few cold beers on a Saturday.

Good luck,
Sellncars

Free power from the sun.

Lindo, if you are not going to go through w/ an electical install, and a maglight would be suffice, then why don't you take the solar device into consideration? It's not expensive and looks like it would definitley work for you. I think its a great idea and it would give you a hell of a lot more light than a maglight would.

OH and about the depth of buried cable? First off, it depends on local code. Secondly, the code depends on what protection the cable has. Darren, I understand the slight confusing on the "piggy backing" quote. I think you guys are just misunderstanding eachother, I've seen both of you bring information to the table before. One reason why one would want to use Plastic Conduit is because usually you only have to bury it half as far as UF or EMT ... A nice feature for sure. Here, I think code is only 6" for plastic - not a tough job at all. I'd go a bit further, but I think the code here for UF is like 14".
