Identifying cable sizes can be confusing, especially when the info isn't printed on the cable!

What I have found useful to check on cable sizes is to use bootlace ferrules to check this.


That's a great tip, but you still don't know the composition of the metal and where it's from. Quality standards for the past 30 years or so ensure that a cable manufacturer should be able to trace it right back to the mine where the copper ore was unearthed.

I think that this is easily prevented by only buying cable that is properly marked and from a reputable source.
