A: I don't see why not. It's pretty thick wire...I would definitely use the red wire nuts for this one....make sure you don't overload any of you run. Home Depot sells this tool to easily strip that metal...if you don't have one it's a great thing to have. Anyone in the electrical department can point you in the right direction for that thing. Has a crank on it....and works great.
A: Sure. Run both into a junction box and do your splice inside the box.
A: yes, inside an electric box
A: Absolutely. I'm a fan of twisting solid conductors together prior to wing nut. Have seen too many instances of not twisting result in failure.
A: Yes. The conductors in MC cable are similar to the conductors in Romex. The splice must be in a covered junction box with each cable appropriately terminated to the box. The ground wire must also be spliced through the junction box.
A: Yes you would just need to install a junction box where you splice it.
A: I will string a section of it from one box to another and keep the armor coat tight, then mark with a sharpie. The cable is somewhat forgiving with length as it flexes.
A: Measure your metal conduitto each box. Add 3 to 4 inches to each end so wires will reach into pull box. Mark metal conduit where you attach it to the conduit fitting that screws onto your pull box. Use wire cutters and cut the edge of the metal conduit that you can with your wire cutters. Bend the conduit in half where you made cut. Conduit will snap apart. Finish cutting excess conduit off where you made your first cut so you can fit the wiring into the pull box.
A: The stuff is really hard to cut but Kline Tools makes a little cutter that will change your life....it's about 35 bucks but worth every penny. It's at Home Depot where all of the Kline electrical tools are...if you can't find it ask. You'll thank me later. :-)

A: Yes 12-2 with ground wire.b
A: Yes, that is correct.
A: Yup...black, white, and green wire in that tube.
A: Yes, hot neutral and ground, all three are insulated.
A: Yes. A black white and green
A: No, it must be used indoors such as your house or an outbuilding. It is not water-proof.
A: No, this is only for interior use.
A: 1. Answer #1: According to NEC 330.12 which states Type MC Cable shall not be used under either of the following conditions: • Where subject to physical damage • Where exposed to any of the destructive corrosive conditions, unless the metallic armor is resistant to conditions or is protected by material resistant to the conditions i.e. a PVC jacket, which in this case with this product does not have. So, no this product may not be used outdoors.
