@Dan_e: ...leave it to the pompus Brits to think yours the "Standard Wire Gauge"

Leave it to the Americans to have a sporting event called "The World Series" to which they are pretty much the only contestants. "Oooh, an American baseball team won the World Series ... again!" LOL

@Dan_e: oops - correction it was Max's comment that I was referring to, but I guess it was Steve who didn't seem to understand what AWG was.

Actually, Steve never said he didn't know what AWG was, all he did say was "I believe the American and UK standards are slightly different."

@Steve - you must be living under a rock if you have never heard of AWG, and really isn't anything implied by calling it so, other than it is the standard the US. LOL- leave it to the pompus Brits to think yours the "Standard Wire Gauge"!

@Max: t's so cute when they try to re-invent something and stick the word "American" in front of it as though to imply that their wire gauge is better than anyone elses

LOL

@Steve: SWG means Standard Wire Gauge which defines the wire's diameter.

As you know, I'm from the UK, so I didn't even think about your reference to SWG in your blog -- but in the past I have run into the fact that no one here in the USA seems to know what it means. Over here, the little scamps use AWG (American Wire Gauge) -- it's so cute when they try to re-invent something and stick the word "American" in front of it as though to imply that their wire gauge is better than anyone elses LOL
