Thanks for your electrical wiring question James.

How to Identify and Splice Telephone System Cables

WARNING
Telephone system wiring is considered low voltage however when a call comes in there could be up to 90 volts present, so be well insulated and lay on a dry insulated surface to prevent  direct contact with the ground and handle one wire at a time.

Usually there is some slack in the length of wires, so I like to bring them together and tie them into a knot.
