    I only exaggerate enough to compensate for being taken with a grain of salt.

    Do what's already been proposed. Stop by your local home supply store, get a step drill bit and a few cable clamps and be done with it. Not that hard to do, even if the panel is hot. Why take a chance in Codes failing it. There are usually two inspections. A rough in and final.

    The problem with drilling new holes is the way the panel is mounted it is outside inside a box and the wires come in thru the bottom from the back and there is no access to drill anywhere else unless the panel was removed..

    Do you have other knockouts with only one cable in them? If so you can use of of them. Otherwise get a 3/4" hole saw (make sure it's for metal or you will burn it out first time) and a romex connector and you're good to go. I'd shut the main when drilling just in case you pop through to far and clip a wire. Not a good feeling.

    [QUOTE="B7510HSD"]Can you have more than one wire running thru the same hole/clamp in the panel?? I need to run 3 more circuits and don't have any knock outs left..[/QUOTE
    Everyone here with suggestions is speculating just as I am. With a picture of the box and the wiring. One can only make general suggestions as what we would do in your shoes. Post a few pictures to clear the air.

    It depends on your local building code. I'm a 3rd gen electrician and I have been running two wires through a single knockout for years w/o any issues with code or inspections. If you have 3 existing knockouts with a single 14/2 or 12/2 wire (which are most common), you can use them. The inspector would probably be more concerned if the cables you run aren't stapled down within 6" of the entry to the panel. I agree with the Kid, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Well we finally had the time to finish the roughing in the dry wall and covering all the electrical and we passed the final yesterday!!!! Thanks for all the help guys..We were able to run 2 12/2 thru one clamp in the panel no problem...Only thing we had to fix was we weren't aware of the tamper resistant outlets being required!!! Happy Holidays!

    I had to look it up as to what they were. Nice to know that the code has changed for my future projects.
