Yes. There are bugger all ( <- technical term) currents flowing in the wires in these situations.

I'd say braided 26 is my favorite gauge for everything but power cables. 28 is too small, 24 gets hard to flex in 2-3 wire braids

Psst, that's the technical term we professionals use for just about nothing.



Exactly. It stems from there being so little of the item in question (in this case current) that there is all but a bug's worth present, and we all know how small insects can be.

lol one could always look up wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugger ignore the sexual connetations, go straight down to usage; or one could get a book of australian slang, to give you internationals an english lesson

We created it Garb, I could even claim royalties - I'm Bulgarian.

Yeah but it takes an australian to create a TV add that uses the word bugger about 10 times (even the dog says it), to sell a toyota ute
