______________1. This is used for griping, holding, cutting electrical wires and cables
and even small nails. Usually used by linemen in doing heavy tasks.
______________2. Used for cutting and holding fine wires. This can reach tight space or
small opening where other pliers cannot reach and also used in making terminal loops of
copper wires.
______________3. This has a cross tip resembling a positive (+) sign. It is used to drive
screws with cross slot heads.
______________4. This is tools used in driving or pounding and pulling out nails.
______________5. A tool used for removing insulation of medium sized wires ranging from gauge #10 to
gauge #16.
______________6. A small drilling machine with a chuck capacity of ¼‖ to 3/8‖. It is used
in making holes on metal sheets and concrete walls.
______________7. Comes in either Standard or Philips screw driver with short shank or
blade and shorted handle used to turn screws in tight space where standard screw driver
cannot be used.
______________8. Used by linemen to remove insulation of wire and cables in low and high voltage
transmission lines.
______________9. Is a device inserted to a convenience outlet to conduct electric
current. A flat cord is attached to it on one end and the other end is connected to a current
consuming instrument or appliance.
______________10. This is a circuit protective device that automatically blows and cut the current when an
over load or short circuit happens.
______________11. This is a rectangular shaped metallic or plastic (PVC) material in which flush type
convenience outlet and switch are attached.
______________12. Are electrical materials used as the passage of wires for protection and Insulation.
______________13.Are used to attach metallic or non-metallic conduit to the junction or utility boxes.
______________14. This is a protective device used to automatically cut off the current when trouble in the
circuit such as short circuit or over load occurs.
______________15. Is an octagonal shaped electrical material where the connections or
joints of wires are being done. It is also where the flush type lamp holder is
Definition of Terms:
Ampere - a unit of measure of electric current
Circuit - the path of electric current from the source to the components and goes
back to the source
Kilowatt - a unit of power which is equivalent to 1000w
Conductor - a wire or a cord which provides path for current flow
Resistance - the quality of electric current measured in ohms that resist the flow of
Hot wire - a wire through which current flows
Insulator – material used to cover electric wires which may be made from plastic,
rubber, or asbestos.
Tools - are implements used to modify raw materials for human use
Corrugated plastic conduit (CPC) - commonly known as flexible non-metallic
conduit or the “moldflex”
Metallic Conduits- usually fabricated of steel, which metal raceways that encloses electrical wiring,
thereby protecting the wiring from outside damage. Metal raceways are classified into four; rigid steel
(RSC), intermediate metallic conduit or tubing (IMC or IMT), electrical metallic
conduit or tubing (EMC or EMT) and the flexible metallic conduit (FMC)
Non-metallic conduits- plastic conduits or raceways designed to be a channel of
wire that are classified as; rigid non-metallic conduit or the PVC, the flexible nonmetallic
or CPC, and the surface plastic molding
Connectors and Adapters - accessories that are used to connect from boxes to
conduits or raceways to the other boxes in the electrical system
