Every time Melania is out of the country , I forget every electrical thing I ever learned so I have to wait a couple of weeks before I can reply to this young person wanting to know how to wire stuff.

At least that's the way I took it.

Oh I don't doubt his curiosity and interest is peaked , but he should
be directed in the right direction..example read books , sign up for
any high school classes (if there are any at all available) or even
see if he can attend night classes or flat out attend a trade center in
lieu of standard high school (again-if available).

Ok to clear up some confusion, my grandpa (who is a liscenced electrician) will be at my side doing all the connections and helping me. And if I have never said anything about christmas lights display, you guys would have never said anything about diy. This isn't diy. This is an actual range plug that is going to be installed and I had a question about wire gauge. That is not diy. Thank you to all that actually answered me!

Why go thru school and a 5 year apprenticeship and learn from professionals for years in order to become an electrician when any 15 year can call himself an electrician and just use an app on his iPhone and install subpanels and high amperage receptacles in people's houses?

Maybe if Petey did his job instead of spending 99% of his time on this forum arguing politics this wouldn't happen.

I admire that your interested in the electrical field. I know you should
not be attempting this alone. Your first couple of posts show your
inexperienced maybe more than you realize.

But , anyhow , this is all a mute point now that you've said your
grandad is with you , monitoring & teaching....

They don't need to anymore. Between DIY forums, youtube, and social media, anyone with 1/2 a brain and some common sense can do damn near anything.

The Q;s you're asking may sound simple, but there's a lot of 'ifs & butts' that apply in the field.

This is why you really need someone looking over your shoulder , you grandfather probably being a better resource than a chat rm

Don't take it personally , we ALL served years under a seasoned spark's watch, until they were comfortable allowing us to go it alone
