Because I want to make sure I use a cable of the proper rating. Just
because a cable is thick doesn't mean the wirees are thick. If I get
the proper cable I'll have one of the proper rating. Right now I'm
using a standard cable I've carved with a notch, but without striping
away the insulation I won't know the thickness of the wires.
