In wiring, understanding the finer details is crucial to your personal safety - it is a craft that demands only the most reliable information, and HomeSkills: Wiring provides just that. Its skills-based approach to electrical work does more than simply tell you to connect the black wire to the brass terminal; it explains each step along the way so you understand the larger purpose for every task. This book sensibly distills the components of successful wiring: an overview of home electrical service and how it works; discussion of tools, tool usage, and materials handling; and step-by-step instructions for skills like stripping insulated wire, making connections with a wire connector, running cable through walls, wiring ceiling lights, hooking up receptacles and switches, grounding electrical loads safely, and other common wiring jobs. Add to these dependable lessons the book's 300 beautiful how-to photos and up-to-date information on meeting current electrical codes, and you'll soon be conquering your home's electrical projects safely and efficiently.--COVER.
