I have to connect an electric range. The electrician told me I need 6
gauge cable with 4 wires, and needs to be connected to a 60 amp fuse or
breaker. I already have a spare 60 amp fuse thingie that says RANGE on
it, right next to the one that says MAIN. I cant afford to hire the
electrician, and that 6 gauge wire is very expensive. Until I can
afford to buy that wire, after my tax return in April, can I just use
some old telephone wire that I have. It has 4 wires in it and should
reach to the range, if I duct tape the two pieces together? The
telephone wire is gray and has 4 wires inside red, green, yellow, and
black. What color wire goes to what in the range and the fuse box?

depending on who was being called. Maybe for the second party the
ring was the yellow or black) and the green tipped the balance in some
I'm 66 and after 47 years, I finally learned this year that the tip is
the tip of the phone plug and the ring is the ring shaped part of the
plug behind the tip. For this alone, it was worth living this long.
