    should’n you actually start with the ground wire then neutral, then finally
    black (hot)?

    It’s always a smart thing to do if you are wiring it hot. So it’s nice to
    get used to it. I won’t go in to why but it’s not a requirement or anything.

    is actually phase neutral and earth , both the pahse and the neutral r live
    in a circuit n where im froms scotland , any half decent electrician doesnt
    use gauges to determine how much to strip off , its second nature , these
    vids r a danger to the public

    Why does this guy insist on stripping the jacket off before running into
    the box? The jacket is there to protect the conductors. Pull your wire
    through and then strip it!!

    brown is live in my country and neutral is blue now second phase is black
    but in domestic we use brown

    @sgtgrooover i am a apprentice. i found that if you run the cable into the
    box, then mark it then strip 1/2 inch after your mark it makes the cable
    perfect. this way you already have the clamp bent and part of the cable in
    the box so your conductors have less of a chance getting damaged. i use
    cable strippers to strip wire not speed strippers.

    @sgtgrooover Yeah, for the plastic boxes, he should probably be stripping
    after pulling it through, but it doesn’t matter for metal boxes – as long
    as you’re careful while you pull them through. The guys I work with always
    strip first, then push through (myself included), though we always use
    metal. But if you’re pushing the wires into the box so hard that you’re
    nicking the actual wire insulation on the way in, you’re obviously doing it
    way too hard.

    @thegalster1888 totally, I was laughing at his ‘strip-guage measuring’ too
