Electrical Wiring Diagrams

Home electrical wiring diagrams are an important tool for completing your electrical projects. An electrical wiring diagram can be as simple as a diagram showing how to install a new switch in your hallway, or as complex as the complete electrical blueprint for your new home or home improvement project.

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.

    my house has a 200 amp circuit with six open breaker positions. I am planning to build a workshop several hundred feet away from the box and want to know the most economical plan. Should I just have the utility put in a new drop (everything coming from the street is underground). Can I run a line from the main around the house to the other side where the shop is planned. It will be a woodworking shop primarily but since I work alone only one tool and the exhaust extraction/filter system will run at a time. I think a 100 amp box would be sufficient. If I have a new drop put in would you suggest a three phase system?
    Thanks in advance,

    The most economical solution may actually depend on how much you plan to do yourself, and if you have the necessary equipment, especially if you install underground conduit. Depending on the environment and personal preference, an overhead service extended from the house may be an option and the required triplex wire would be less expensive. Due to the distance, voltage drop will be a factor which will require up-sizing the wire, especially if you decide to go underground.
    As for an additional service from the electrical utility, generally they do not deliver three phase to residential dwellings, and in some locations a second service is not allowed. Check with your local electric utility provider for the specifics and costs.
    Above all, make sure to provide ample power for your workshop equipment, especially the motor loads, and plan for any future devices or expansion.
