I purchased 600' of 12-2 to do my new wiring.
I just went through each room and 'guesstimated' how much it would take. This is the end of the last roll.... all I have left.... all done with the wiring too.

Man, can I call 'em or WHAT? LOL

well, since you are a layman, I guess that much waste is acceptable:laughing:

but then I don't use NM either.:whistling2:

now I'm going to wait for DM's next post where he remembered something and needs 23 feet but has to buy a 100' roll.

I have forgotten to add:

Nope, it's solid wire, not just the jacket.

Thanks nap... it was likely more 'good luck' rather than any involved math or any other skills. LOL

I think I'll use it to decorate my next 'magic box'! I'll strip it down to bare wire, hook it to my drill and twist it like a rope, then inlay it in the wood. Po)

That's awful impressive!:thumbsup:

I'm so conservative, I usually wind up being 2" short at the boxes.:wink::furious::laughing:

I can rent you a wire stretcher to take care of that. I'll send my apprentice out to find it right now. He should be back in no time.:whistling2:

Pure luck.

The NM you have there you just got lucky most case I never buy too short at all always get extra ya never know what you will run into.

One service call I have to order a new conductors and one guy asked me how many meters the conductor I want and I told him 150 meter worth and by time I got done I only have 3 meter left over so it was not too bad.

That guy look at me and kinda fabbsergahed and he ask me did I use the tape mesure to figure it out I reply Non.,,, I go by the numbers of sticks { EMT } I used that how I know the number.

Merci.
