    Is there a common reference for calculating wire gauge as a result of combining wires (for example, I believe two 12Ga wires are equivalent to a single 10Ga). Thx.

    Check out this free software from wiretron. It doesn't directly do what you're trying to do, but it lets you calculate resistance values for a variety of alloys and gauges.

    I find it very useful.
