also, for new builds, i usually take a pic of where this and that went especially for electrical lines...printed in black n white then bind them in a file folder.

for reference of course.
I think i was a woodworker in my previous life...and the life previous to that.

Agree with Doc V. That it may seems like putting electrical conduits is like a waste of when done after finishing. But it will be a case to case basis if you do not have an electrician in the team.

tsaka maliit lang kasi na bahay around 30 sqm.

Nonetheless, it's a very rewarding experience doing electrical work.

I once bought a box of Phelps Dodge THHN/THWN-2 wire for a lighting project. As I pulled out the wire from the box, before long, everything was a tangled mess.

I noticed that the side of the box has a hole in it. The front of the box also has someway for holes to be cut out. Here's a photo of the box from OLX.

Is there a special technique here that makes use of those holes?

Since I would normally run a pair of wires, is there a technique to pull out two wires simultaneously without ending up in tangles?

a. I buy from Mayon in Bunondo. (T. Alonzo cor Soler) But feel free to canvass around there. Triton was also recommended to me before.
b. I also buy from Mayon. I use Panasonic, but they also have Omni, Firefly, etc.
c. One box contains 150 meters.

I think TW is cheaper than THHN.
