For reasons of esthetics, I'd like to pass a 14gage Romex via a switch box
on a wall. This is a surface mounted box. This new cable is on separate ckt
breaker. Is this allowed by NEC code? Can't find that case anywhere.
If you mean through a switch box, it's not something I've ever seen done,at
least not without a splice in the box, but provided the box has adequate
space for the additional conductors and two connectors, it should be fine
You are right, not the usual case :-) I'm mounting a receptacle box, below
a switch box. Both surface mounted on the wall. Do not want run the cable
around the switch box, although it would be easier and quicker.
Guess I could.
The box has 2 switches in it, so I suppose I could get a one bigger, but am
not sure I've seen surface mounted one for 3 devices. Already had a spare
2-device box with the right receptacle cover.
