    Need to connect some thick wires

    I am about to hook up an inductive cooktop and separate stove to my old 220 stove wire, I thought i could use wire connectors but the biggest ones i have, red ones, do not look big enough to hold all the wires, is there some type of connector I should get?

    Question on pop up drain with overflow

    Kitchen Vent Options

    Could you run it along the attic floor to the smaller rear vent, giving a slight rise? Or using option 3, instead of going down, run it thru the roof near the peak on the back?

    I built a new house and hired a guy I was told was a plumber, he was a hack maintenance guy somewhere, before I fired him he had run a good deal of the pex for the hot water base board, then I got a real outfit to finish the heating and there were two leaks from the first guy, both in the second...

    Stove plug connection -not liking

    I am attaching the wire that goes from main panel, not yet connected, to the 220 stove outlet. It seems like a poor design, there is a kind of flip thing with a screw on it which clips into place and then the screw should tighten down over the wire, but with stranded wire the screw does not...
