Electrical Tip

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.

    I have been this situation many times doing rewires. When trying to get a wire from the basement to the attic, the easiest way to do it is to take some string and chain and from the attic look around for the vent pipe that goes from the basement into the attic. Drop the string and chain down the side of the pipe. Bounce the chain around and the weight of the chain will carry the string to the basement. It might take some time but it has worked every time i’ve down this
