  1. Sorry to have created a confusing question. Lets try it again. Forget all that I have said before. I saw a 200 amp main panel in a garage. There was no other disconnecting device between it and the meter. This panel had 4/0 Alminum service conductors wired into the service main breaker and neutral buss connection. The neutral busses were isolated from the panel box. There were two ground busses, one on each side of the panel box, bonded directly to the panel box. (This is to say they were isolated from the neutral busses and neutral service conductor.) A #4 bare copper grounding condu

All of the house circuit's ground conductors were connected to the left grounding buss and all the neutrals were connected to the right side grounding buss. The neutrals from the house were isolated from the main service neutral. I report
  4. I thought that the actually diameter of a copper wire can vary within a given guage if the insulating capacity of the insulation wrap is greater or lesser. Wouldn't you need several labeled samples of say 12 guage wire and then wouldn't you also have to be able to read the labeling on the wire that you were comparing?
