Why for putting wires into a junction box, rather then use a crimped connection as suggested ?

BTW, the brand is Ancor, not Anchor, which is what you've got too many of to begin with.
Yep honest sp. mistake do it all the time...

By code, all electrical connections have to be accessible when the house is finished, and in a UL approved junction box. You can't just cover the box behind drywall, there has to be a removable cover plate. You also can't decide to add a cabinet in front of an outlet without cutting out the back for access to the outlet and the connections.

Freesail-

Charlie's nailed why I said the local fire marshal would want to be talking to you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That looks a lot like the crimper I keep in my main tool box at the house, which is made by Ancor.



I also have one of these Ancor crimpers aboard the boat, but it isn't as good IMHO.

SD which ratcheting crimper do you use I need to replace mine and there are sooo many options? I currently have the Ancor ratcheting but am not totally impressed with the quality of the crimp.

I'm considering the Klein T1710.

I've not used the ratcheting type, although I could see some benefit to them in a tight space-that is, if you can get the head of them into said space! I've found the traditional Klein Pliers, the tool the company is most famous for and they're actually crimper/cutters, to be the most effective. You can see a photo here:http://www.tools-plus.com/klein-1006.html
If you're using the conventional strippers/crimpers you're going to have a quantifiable increase in life satisfaction by purchasing a pair. Available at Home Depot and electrical supply houses. Channel Lock makes a knock-off version as well.

Sailaway...

Unfortunately, that crimper you use is not designed or intended for use on insulated terminals such as those made by Ancor, FTZ or AMP. That tool is for non-insulated terminals... Just a heads up...
