Wiring For an Additional Kitchen Outlet
Question: I need to add an outlet in my kitchen (up in my cabinets) and have that controlled by a switch down below. So I can plug in my under cabinet counter lighting in & have it controlled by the switch.
Could you help?

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.
