    I have 2 OSGs, 16th and the red 17th.
    The first I purchased, the second was given to me.
    Both copies contain errors, they are only really useful for support spacing for containment, cable volumes in containment and a few other charts such as resistance per meter of conductors.

    The OSG isnt exclusive for domestic installations. Understanding of the sciences as well as the practical side of electrics apply the same to all installations.
