Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Can I wire sockets with 18gauge wire for 40watt bulbs?
I have two light fixtures that I am rewiring the sockets on - one four socket fixture and one five socket fixture. I only use and intend to continue using 40watt bulbs. I believe each is wired with a basic 110 jigawatt line. Is the 18 gauge wire I bought gonna do me right? The 16 was much fatter and I didn't like it.
Bonus point question: Can one still buy the rope-style wires, without the asbestos of yore? I'm picturing a modern wire with an aesthetic cord casing - it seems like someone should have done this.
e~ I don't know anything else about my circuit box except that the house is old as balls and probably was at least partially rewired several times.
