  1. How can you tell if the wire is 14 gauge, , or 12 gauge. When you say change the wire From 14 gauge to 12 gauge , what do you mean by that.

    1. When someone mentions changing the wire from 14 gauge to 12 gauge, they are referring to replacing a wire that has a diameter corresponding to 14 AWG with a wire that has a larger diameter corresponding to 12 AWG.
      A lower gauge number indicates a thicker wire that can handle a higher current capacity. So, switching from 14 gauge to 12 gauge means using a wire with a larger diameter capable of carrying more current.

  2. How can I determine the wire gauge of the wire once it’s off the spool with a label? I have a micrometer – do you know the respective wire diameters?

    1. To determine the wire gauge of a labeled wire off the spool using a micrometer, gently measure its diameter with the micrometer, then consult a wire gauge chart or conversion table to find the corresponding gauge based on the measured diameter in inches or millimeters, selecting the closest match for accurate identification.
