Actually the combined is 1.5 amps. Each is 0.74 but close enough to 1.5 amps. I picked up 20 feet of 14 gauge wire for less then $2.50. The smaller wire wouldn't have saved enough to matter. Right now I've got everything but the bulbs and the wood. When I went to order the bulbs they were having one WEIRD phone glitch.
I was thinking about a fuse but wasn't sure how important it was. I added a switch so I can leave the fans on intially to let the bulbs warm up.
Now to just twiddle my thumbs while I wait for bulbs.
