    I need to connect (2) #6 conductors, but the largest wire nut I can find will only handle (1) #6 with (1) #8. Does such a wirenut exist or do I have to use something else? TIA

    There are wirenuts for #6 wire. Keep looking.

    edit: Ideal part 30-454 is what you want.

    For the load you must have, I would prefer "Bundy lugs" or similar which clamp the wires together, and then tape over them.

    Thanks for the info, I had to try a different store and they had the correct wire nuts. It's for a hot tub neutral in a service disconnect box (GFCI breaker is in main panel).
