When performing residential electrical wiring one could run into on of many different types of wiring methods. In the video wire types below I give a basic description about some of the cables you may run into on a residential project. I created a Powerpoint video wire sizes that show some common wire sizes used in residential electrical wiring. I am always willing to respond to any questions that you may have so feel free to leave a comment and I will get with you ASAP. So sit back relax,and enjoy the video and don’t forget to leave a comment to let me know what you think.



  1. Hey Tyrone,

    Thanks for posting this stuff. I found your site while surfing Mike Holt’s links.

    I’m an apprentice working in Canada and really appreciate the videos – I started in the trade in residential but have spent most of my time since on large industrial construction, so I have forgotten some of the basics with regard to NMD and BX. This is a great refresher course.

    Thanks again,


Please share your thoughts
