Know The Electrical Conditions Before Purchasing a Home
Question: I looked at a house today that I was interested in buying. The breaker box was stolen and wires cut off 3 foot from the floor. Can this be repaired by using junction boxes, or does every wire in the house have to be totally reinstalled. I would like for the home to be up to the current electrical codes.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
