I have a homemade 8 light lamp I need to wire. I had a class in Electricity in the 10th grade when Nixon was still in office. I do remember that I will wire the lamps in a parallel circuit.
Each socket will host a 6 watt LED, which 8 of them put AMPs at .4 by my calculation on 110 v.
The lamp is made of metal, and I plan on running a ground from the lamp to the ground wire in the outlet box.
For the wiring harness, I'm challenged with balancing cosmetic appeal and not burning my house down. I'm thinking about MIL22759/12 in 20 AWG, which is a flame resistant wire rated for 600V, and operating conditions of -65°C to +200°C. The insulation on this wire is PTFE.
My reading of 20 AWG is that it can carry 1.5 AMPs, which I'm well under. For safety I'm thinking about a 1 AMP in-line fuse.
The wires will be put into heat shrink tubing to prevent chafing.
Will this lamp burn my house down?
