Questions & Answers

Is this actually 18 gauge stranded copper? What tempering?

Asked by Danielle February 2, 2021
1
Answer

Sometimes our on-line catalog doesn't contain every product made at any particular time. If it is labeled and sold as 18 AWG, then it must be correct. It is soft drawn (SD).

Answer

Please contact a local electrician. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.

The product was poorly packaged for shipping and arrived at the San Mateo Home Depot customer pickup with one end of the spool broken off and a lot of the wire from the broken end of the spool in an unusable tangle. A real rat's nest when I went to unreel it.

I purchased the by-the-foot bare 18 gauge wire to ground a DIY dust collection system in my small workshop. The wire was exactly what I needed and the wire was easy to work with. If I have to buy wire again I will use Southwire again.

I misinterpreted the gauge as the wire size assuming I was getting a braided ground strap (due to description on website). This is not grounding strap, but actually `18 gauge wire. Ok for trivial grounding, but I would not recommend this project to do real house hold grounding.
