Hi mhb-

"Make sure and ground one end of the shield, I won't say which one to avoid wars, just try it both ways and go with what works best."

I totally agree with that statement. I have always perferred one method but everyone has an opinion.

As for unsheilded runs, at a MINIMUM I would twist the hot and common leads..

RF is everywhere and quite pervasive. I screened the pwr leads in my GC. As a result, it is DEAD quiet. ZERO noise even at the speaker.

Good luck,

Troy

Hi Killjoy99,
Most people here seem to recommending common sense. Use wire designed for whatever task and lay it out carefully. I buy my wire where it's most convenient to get to as I travel a lot.
If you have a wiring fault that will overheat wire, a fuse should have gone or the guage is too small. Exotic wire is not required, but if it makes you feel better ...

This pure silver you can get only by transmutation, which, as I know, nobady knows ( in industry form ) .

Lightbulb Pure Silver

For your information: it is done by a process called zone melting just the way pure Silicon is produced for chip wafer manufacturing.

I use CAT5 wire -- bought from Radio Shack or pulled out of a dumpster --

I also have some teflon insulated wire which I purchased at Electronic Surplus --

for power supplies I use the #12 STRANDED from Home Depot in Red, Black and Green.

btw, Bob Pease pointed this out at National Semi's website -- we all know the standard physics equations for L and di/dt, or C and dv/dt, if you have to measure small voltages note that there can be a dC/dt term if the cables are jiggled in the least!
