try this.............

place both hands flat on the table in front of you....

take a close look at your index finger nail on either hand....

does the nail of one finger rotate inwards toward the middle finger slightly more than that of the other hand? ****

I have this theory about twisting on wire nuts over the years.....


****depending on righty or lefty

Bill,
You must use a wire nut tool.
BTW, are those who don't pre-twist prone to a more advanced stage of this strange malady?
Could be a further argument for pre-twisting. Those who do may be entitled to a discount on disability insurance!!
