Inspection by comparing it to known good 12ga wiring. Nowhere near enough
strands to be 12ga. Ebay refunded my money without comment, either, as
others complained as well. I think I still have the pictures. One glance
and you would have been able to determine that it wasn't 12ga wire.
From Ebay? (-: That's where the difference lies. Your vendors probably
want to continue their relationship with your company. Fraudsters on Ebay
probably realize that one-off purchases of speaker wire will not morph into
Both Amazon and Ebay continue to sell counterfeit USB drives that report
128Gb but are actually 8 or 16Gb units with doctored firmware. Again, it's
one-off fraudsters running that scam as well and they change their names
often to evade responsibility. They wouldn't change their names so often if
they were hoping for *legitimate* repeat business.
Guess I was lucky as some wire I bought off ebay was actually the
correct size. I used a micrometer to measure the strands diameter and
then conted the number of strands. The sellers did have a large number
sales and over 99% reviews.
I thought someone called out wire extention cords they got from Lowes or
Home Depot for too small of wire.
I didn't mean to imply all Ebay wire was under spec but the stuff I got
certainly was. Once I compared it to real 12ga wire it was obvious that
although the OD was the same, the insides were quite different. If for some
reason I needed 16ga or so with a very heavy outer plastic jacket, it would
have been great. (-:
I mentioned the phony 128GB USB sticks both sell. Sadly, some of the
sellers had good reviews because the devices only failed when you went
beyond 8 or 16GB depending on the *actual* size of the chip they doctored to
show much greater capacity.
So if you were storing pictures, adding just one more that exceeded the
limit wiped EVERYTHING out. And yet both Amazon and Ebay continue to sell
the phony capacity sticks. Lots of people write reviews, it seems, without
ever having testing the product. Many take the hit because they don't want
to send a stick back to the fraudster where they may be able to recover

anyone recommend a good power invertor?
just looking for something to power a corded power drill from a truck to
use as a sort of a power jack on the scissors jack.

I believe that scissors jack operate on screw from the side, as some one
said inverter size depend on your load. However guessing drill size what you
need is low speed ½” industrial type, impact drill is “no no” otherwise not
only that it will not work right but it might damage the screw on the Jack.
Inverter should be 750-1000 watts “Continues” operation not intermittent,
but everybody have their own opinion.

No, they are commonly available here as 12 volts, and almost free at

But correct he will still need to size it to the drill he plans on using.
