Re: Electrical wiring in the home shop.

I'm with Steve, amazingly enough, and I would use what I have. It's a hole.....for a strain-relief. If the strain-relief fits, deburr it, vac up the chips, and it's good to go! :) Bill This could ruin your reputation. Another thing just occurred to me I could tack the extraneous knockouts with a we...

They'll put a whole bunch of 1/2" knockouts on one side, a knockout with multiple diameters on the other side, 15 3/4" knockouts on the bottom...it all appears to be random, and it can cause problems. Sometimes...
