Do you all use this for your under the table wiring when splicing? Sounds like it would be better than tape for covering the soldered feeders to the bus wire. Is this a pretty thick liquid that is not so likely to drip off the bottom of the wiring onto the flooring(carpet)?

Paul There was another thread not very long ago about the use of "liquid tape".

Anyway, IMHO, I see no need to cover feeder to bus wire?
To Me, Only those wires in danger of "shorting" need to be covered?


Yeah, I hunted that thread up, sorry I didn't let you know. Thanks for going to the trouble tho. Looks like I don't need to use it, so that's good.
