Cool cool.. and my question was not technically worded at all.. I engineer all day at work, so I'm a little lazy on the forums.
I do know the math to figure out the power the wire can carry over the short distance and all, but... again, works been busy so I'm lazy and don't use that part of my brain for the extracurricular stuff.
But, I just did and it'll be fine..
-oh, and I have seen that cable with the fibers wrapped around the strands, but not often around here. I think it gives it strength for unusually long pulls. The stuff I find is usually just the TP's in the jacket. Each TP is a pair of teflon insulated copper wires. It makes great, free, small gage wire.

These figures are for a safe bet. you may be able to get more because we only use lasers for a short time.
