Re: Can strand mix with solid of same gage in circuit?
About the only thing you can't use stranded wire for is the "backstab" connections on outlets and switches -- the kind of connection where you just jab it in and you're done.
You CAN use the backwire connections IF it is the kind with an internal clamp that tightens with a screw.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
