Wire Gauge tester


Recommended Posts

Good day everyone,

I had this questions posted under Roofing, guess I have this forum thing figured out. Wish wiring was that easy.

Not sure if anyone knows where to get a Gauge tester, other than Professional Instruments?

I made my own many years back when I started my inspection business. I acquired 4" to 6" sections of various gauges of wire and attached one end to a piece of wood that I had drilled holes in. I have long lost it, but I only used it for a few months. After awhile you can see a wire and know its size

Thank's Jim, I'll keep this in mind.

I wrote this up the attached pictures as get a licensed electrician in for repair/upgrade, with a few other choice words.

Main/service and 2 sub panels. Looks like a feed from the service panel to the sub's was unprotected.(sorry for the picture quality). Would like feed back. Also water penatration into the main.
