    will or ............. what ?

    I am a bit confused about the use of when, while, before etc. in the process of joining two sentences having will in one side.
    For example: in this sentence "I will call you when I (will get / get) home from work", should we use 'will' on both side or 'get' or is there any specific rule of grammar?

    No, you never put 'will' in the second clause in the context you're referring to.
    "I will do X, when/before/after I do Y". Not "will do" in the second clause.

    I will call you when I get home.
    I will make dinner when I get to your house.
    You will do your homework when you arrive at your grandparents' house.
    He will eat his dinner when he finishes work.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
