I'm glad that I started reading this thread. It's starting to make me
think that maybe I should start replacing some of my old wiring! My
house was built in 1941 and some of the wiring has been replaced, but
some of it hasn't. All the wiring is in conduit, but some of it is the
old cloth-type of wiring.
Sounds like a winter job to me! But thanks for starting to make me
think about the safety issues involved with older wiring.
