    If this is a rental unit then I would be very careful about checking into the laws/codes in doing this. I know in some areas it is illegal to do electrical work on a rental property without being licensed even if you have permission from the owner or if you own the property yourself. If you do the work then you are liable for any problems down the road. Having said that, I also know things like this are done all the time & if done correctly will never have a problem.

    I did all the conduit work in my studio and had lic. electricians pull the actual wire. The price was very reasonable and it took away a lot of the time-consuming work for them.

    Is the 4-wire outlet far away from his work area? I'm guessng you were saying it's about 100'. Otherwise you could just create an adapter cable to go from the 3-wire to 4-wire.

    BTW, you can't run 10-2wire (it is covered in insulation) in a conduit. You would need to THHN (idividual wires).

    Didn't know that. Ran 150 feet of it in conduit last night.

    I think what Walker meant was, 10-2 is a "Romex" type wire. Meaning it is all combined in a singulaur type piece that is normal ran thrugh walls.
    It is cheaper to run individual 10 gauge wires, especially through conduit.


    I am glad everything worked out. Yuo got some good time with you son also.

    thanks! It was a great experience for both of us.

    Nothing illegal, I hope, with running romex in conduit?

    Not that I know of. It's just harder to do.
    Next time, run individual wires and you'll see.

    Default Romex in conduit

    I'm still following this thread, as an interested amateur.

    I thought there are two potential problems with running NM in conduit. One being excessive heat buildup. Secondly, running this configuration underground, in which case the cable would still have to be underground rated, due to moisture issues, and breakdown of jacket and paper liner.

    SO true!!! My son's a rock climber and has arms like Arnold used to and he still had trouble feeding it through some of the bends. Live & learn, I guess.
