wiring a building up with a 10 awg stranded wire Answered
i have recently bought a repoed amish rent to own building. it was getting wired in the middle of the repo. i have some stranded 10awg stranded wire with an extension cord male plug on one end. i would like to have it to where i can easily disconnect the power by unplugging it from my outside outlet of the house. inside the building is a complete breaker box with a 60 amp breaker and a bunch of 30's as secondaries. i have read that 30 amp is max for the 10 awg stranded wire. is there any way that i can have the other end of the wiring put in the breaker box with a 30 amp breaker as the main and 15's and possibly a 20 here and there for breakers. it has about 6 outlets and one flourescent light in there. i will have only a small air compressor, small miter saw, couple lights, and a drill battery charger in the building, but never all running at the same time. can someone give me a couple pointers on this? by the way, this is industrial warehouse wire, and not no cheap stuff.
