      At electrical supply house (where they sell circuit
      breaker and conduits etc) they sell this square piece
      of sheet metal with various size holes in it. You
      stick your wire in to find out which is the closest
      size. The holes are marked in AWG.

      As far as current goes .. the wires are rated as to
      how much current will cause X degrees of temperature
      increase. The exact amount of degrees (standard)
      escapes my memory though.

      Hope that helps.

      Hi,

      I have some cables which does not have any specs
      printed on it. Each wire consists of about 20 strands,
      and together they make up a bundle of diameter 1 mm
      (0.4 in) This would be equivalent to what AWG, or
      alternatively what kind of current can it carry?
