    Cool, thank you. This calc. is more detailed than the wire guage chart that is posted regularily here. If someone wants more info than just wire guage required, this calc. looks like it will help.

    I did add it to my favourites. It will be handier than pulling out my calcuator. I just haven't been working on much for the last few weeks. But thanks, it will get used!!

    YES! That's my way of calculating what gauge to use.

    It saves me having to figure out what tables are based on.
    (Mind you, one assumes temperature increases don't effect too much...)
