Hi!

I condensed the information on wire sizes from some threads in this forum into a webpage, hopefully in an easy to digest form.

Suggestions for improvements are welcome. You can't proofread what you've written yourself...

Interesting that C-H... Isn't it amazing how it varies from place to place...well it's obvious I suppose, like language, but it's something I've never really thought of!

Cool work!! [Linked Image]

It's actually quite amazing just how many different standards did evolve for various things in the past.

Look at nuts and bolts: Unified fine and coarse, Whitworth, SAE, British Association, metric.....

Wenborg, sorry about my very late answer.

If you look at your list, you'll notice that you have several options if going from mm2 to kcmil. E.g. 35 mm2 can be either #2 or #3. Whilst such a list can be a help in choosing sizes when going from one set of units to the other, I have chosen to quote the exact values for the AWG sizes straight out of the US NEC.
