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.

  1. AL OREAMUNO says:

    I want to move my current 220/240 volt outlet (for my range) to a new location in my kitchen, it requires about 15 ft of wire after measuring. Could I just splice it to the new box, or the wire has to be continuous (un-spliced) from the dedicated circuit board?
    Thank you for this service,
    AL

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hello Al,
      The dedicated circuit cable does not need to be continuous, therefore a splice with an approved junction box may be installed so the circuit cable may be extended to the new location.
      Be Safe,
      Dave

  2. Lenny says:

    Can I splice a dryer and a range on the same 240 line?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Lenny,
      The amperage ratings are different for an electric dryer and an electric range, therefore a separate dedicated circuit is required for each of these appliances.
      I hope this helps,
      Dave

  3. Tim B says:

    I was told that the dryer electrical wire cannot be spliced according to the Ontario Electrical Code. It must be continuous from the outlet to the breaker. Is this true?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Tim,
      I am unaware of any such code. Electrical splices here in the U.S.A. may be made as long as the splice is accessible and done using approved methods and materials for the electrical circuit and application.
