I'm just trying to be resourceful. I have a very heavy duty power cable from a server that has these wires in it. Is there any way to tell what gauge it is? It doesn't seem to say anywhere. I wonder if I could strip these cables and use them.
Also, why couldn't I just use wire nuts with stranded cable like this? It would be a lot easier as I have never soldered before.
I feel very confident in my ability to wire the unit up as the diagram specifies however I am not familiar with electrical wiring and want to be sure I get the correct materials so as not to create a fire or shock hazard.
Thanks for all you help!
