Are there wirenuts that can handle 3 #8 wires? If not, how do you splice
them. Split bolt connectors? Can you put 3 wires in a split bolt
connector? Is there another way?
Please allow your reply to go to from my "From" address in addition to the
list. It is a good address which I will delete in a couple of days.
Thanks very much for any help.
They only make split bolt connectors for 2 #6 to #10 wire. Just use 2 of
them. Slide one on a few inches, put the other on the end with the
second wire. Put the third wire on with the second split bolt connector.
There are wire nuts just about a big as you can imagine. BUT, personally, i
would strip off about an inch and a half of each, twist them together with
the appropriate sized pliers, THEN solder and tape them.
(with REAL solder, not that yuppified lead free shit)

What I find really annoying is neither [ top-posting or bottom
posting ] but putting the reply after a bunch of stuff requiring a lot
of scrolling down to see if there is any original material there at
all. That, and the stupid complaints about top posting (which seldom
give any reasons, let alone reasonable ones).
BTW, if you say "it's just few clicks", why did you forget that some
groups will have HUNDREDS of new messages in them?
