Re: Best practice wiring order
Even though it's permissible, I don't like the idea of feeding a circuit through a receptacle (where the incoming wire connects to one screw and the outgoing wire connects to another). I prefer to connect the wires with a wire nut, with a single pigtail to the receptacle.
I'm not sure why I feel this way, it just seems like a better way to do it for some reason.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). 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.
