          Type NM-B (non-metallic-sheathed cable) may be used for both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C (with ampacity limited to that for 60°C conductors) as specified in the NEC 1. NM-B cable is primarily used in residential wiring as branch circuits for outlets, switches and other loads. NM-B cable may be run in air voids of masonry block or tile walls where such walls are not subject to excessive moisture or dampness. Voltage rating for NM-B cable is 600-Volt.

          The only negative is the pricing difference between 100' roll and the 250' roll. I knew the 100' roll would have been more than enough for my project, and I don't see another electrical project in the near future, but the cost difference was so small, I bought the 250' roll, and just store the rest of it. I'm going off memory, but the 100' roll was approximately $55. while the 250' roll was $73

          Goes on nicely, and easy to use. The 3.5 qt. size means you will require a lot of buckets for the typical job. This size bucket is kind of handy, but you are obviously paying a fair amount for just the container. I clean up some of them, and keep them in the shop. When using, it's a good idea to prevent any plaster from hardening in the bucket. This means to clean up the sides of the bucket, and level off the plaster in the bucket when storing. I remove most of the plaster with a putty knife, and use a damp paper towel to clean up the residue. You don't want any hard lumps of plaster when trying to smooth things out.

          Dislike the connection. The adaptor that connects the house wire to the track just hangs from the box, and is only supported by the track. This didn't seem right, so I went to Home Depot to discuss with their electrical guy. He initially thought parts were missing, but we finally decided it was designed to just hang there. The instructions are not very clear. Kind of a poor design. Also, to bring the wire from the box to their adaptor, you need to remove the round "knock-out", but it's very firmly attached. I bent the first adaptor trying to knock it out. On the second one, I got a large socket to support the metal while I punched out the center. Don 't know why they even had a Read More

Don 't know why they even had a knock-out, as you have to remove it to wire the device up. Why not just make a simple hole without the knock-out? Again, poorly designed. Once installed, it works pretty nice. Read Less

          Answer: 
          I'm sure this strip would not be the limiting factor. If the amperage of the circuit is near capacity already, the you would be limited. However, with LED drawing such a small amount of electricity, I'd really be surprised. I have two these end to end (16'), and have 8 fixtures on it.

          Answer: 
          Should be okay if the clip is using a small machine screw for the stud. If so, I'd recommend making the stud short (an electrical plyer works nice for this). I don't think you will be able to mount a light fixture directly under the stud, but that shouldn't be an issue. I think an easier approach would be to pre-drill this fixture to match up to your grid work (2' on center?), and then drill a small hole Read More

I think an easier approach would be to pre-drill this fixture to match up to your grid work (2' on center?), and then drill a small hole into the grid in order to install a #8 machine screw (Ideally about 3/8" long). I think drilling slightly off center of the grid would yield the strongest result. You will probably need 3 screws for each 8' section. Read Less

          Answer: 
          We have ours under our pergola so it gets half sun (living down here in hot Phoenix area), and I haven't noticed it being uncomfortable. I suppose it depends on how sensitive you are to heat.

          Answer: 
          I weigh 250 pounds, and the chairs seem sturdy to me. I'm planning on buying more of these chairs, and discard some patio chairs that have steel legs, as they always leave rust marks on our patio.
