Interesting. I know that all the leads that I could see in the panel were copper, but I very well could be wrong. The house was built in 1998, and the outlet that I was primarily trying was a GFI that the sprinkler box is plugged into. I’ll look at the wire a bit closer and try to determine the gauge. With all this discussion, it makes me feel like I should get a real electrician to take a look. I have a family friend who is an electrician, and I was going to get him to install the breaker and first box for the “shop” wiring. It sounds like it wold be money well spent to have him take a look at all the outlets as well.
