Yea, I kinda need to use it at home for an afternoon.  I could probably 
get it all done in a couple hours, but I don't want to try and bend pipes 
and then carry them on my bike ;)

Yea, the circuit is 15A, but I generally use #12 stranded THHN.  If 
noisebridge needs some spools, I could pick up a couple and donate them.
