I think so...because post #8 beat you to it...:D

Haha...touch?! But you're right...just not sure why it's so difficult for other people in this thread to understand.

Based on the labeling on the box, we need to be equal or less than the box fill number AND under the conductor allowance.

The ones that are making me laugh are the ones that insist that ishium is reading the cu in number wrong.

I am the only one that thought that as a possibility. I am glad I got to amuse you at my expense. :grin:

Haha, it seemed like more than just you...my mistake. Anyway, you don't assume clamps because those boxes don't have, nor need clamps. You can assume a device, but then you would know to subtract that from the box volume and know that you could no longer put 9 wires in there.
