    Default WTB: 60' or so of 8/3 Romex Building Wire

    I spent an obscene amount of money at Lowe's for a 125' length since I need 60' and the 50' won't do. I thought maybe one of you has some extra collecting dust you are willing to part with for some greenbacks.

    there are some good building wire deals on ebay that beat box store prices to death- not just rubber cord- take a look- ya might find what you need.

    Run conduit and buy 8ga wire.

    75' EA THHN THWN 8 AWG GAUGE BLACK WHITE RED COPPER WIRE + 10 AWG GREEN


    Contact the seller and maybe he will sell you 80' instead of 75.

    I have an unused 8/3 remnant, but I don't think it is long enough. I'll check tomorrow.
    I assume you've been asking contractors and electricians if they have any remnants.

    And since we're talking wire needs, I'm looking for:
    -#2 AWG THHN, 160ft or 4x40ft lengths
    -#2 AWG THHN, 100ft or 4x25ft lengths
    -#6 AWG THHN or #4 AWG THHN, a roll or partial roll or two

    Will pay cash. I live in Napa, CA but I work down in the South Bay, so prefer local to SF Bay Area

    I may have what you need. I have aroll of 125'. My son say he needs some for his home. I will have to see how much he will need. Around $2.00/foot at Home Depot. The price of copper has gone insane.

    I guess I am crazy or Lowe's website messed up..... the next day I was able to buy a 60' section. It was still over $200 . Thanks for all the replies!

    12x2 with ground Romex.
    I remember when you could buy it for 40.00.
    This was in May might be cheaper now.
