How can I get some of these at resonable prices? So far, the cheapest I've seen them is $1500 without shipping. That sounds steep for "abandoned" containters. I find no mention of where to obtain them on this site or the TV show.

Please don't use all caps. It is hard to read and reserved for SHOUTING.

What you are looking for is called Plugmold. That is one brand name, but the most commonly known.

I think that the generic name is surface raceways with receptacles.

It comes in a number of different lenghts and spacings.

I have seen it at Lowes and HD in the past, don't know what they hve now.

But I am surprised that your electrican did not know what it was. Maybe the way that you described it.

Most any electrical supply house should have it.

Suggestion. Rip a mounting strip of wood at about at 30 degree angle and put it behing the plugmod. Makes it easier to plug into.
