I am trying to wire a receptacle to be operated by a switch. Let me start from the input.

The wires are split, one set going to a live or always hot receptacle box and now this is where I need help, I want to wire another receptacle that is controlled by a switch, can anyone help?

ELECTRICAL SAFETY should always be a primary concern when working on electrical devices. Always seek the advice or assistance of a professional whenever you feel unsure. Learn from the experiences of Qualified Persons, and Do-It-Yourselfer's. This forum will not give you instructions on how to perform like a journeyman electrician. If a task is too complicated for a novice or requires too detailed of an explanation you will be referred to the Experts Area of BobVila.com or to find a local professional. Remember, some electrical jobs are best left to the Professionals.
