pig tails in main panel
First, I would like to thank this site and all the contributors for the information provided. Always reading the good information.
I would like to know how many wires can you pigtail to one circuit breaker at the panel box.
When daisy chain receptacles there seems to be restriction on the number, as long as the wire is rated for the amperage.
What I want to know if receptacles can be combined at the panel box and then connected to breaker with pig tails to free other circuit breakers

Re: pig tails in main panel
The second part of the answer is: All conductors pigtailed together would need to have a minimum amperage rating of no less than the breaker size.
The third part of the answer is: You may well lose some things you do not want to lose at the times you do not want to lose them because a breaker trips from too many things on the combined circuits.
Robert had another part of the answer.
There are likely even more parts of the answer based on what your answers to the above are.
