I have searched the net... No luck on an answer to this ?
I'm removing knob & tube thruout our 100 year old american 4-square. I have figured out ways to get either access to or alternate entry points to get at every single circut in the house.
Looking down from the attic, I know there is interior blocking that I will have to get thru. So I have a 6 foot flexible 1/2 bit and guide tool ordered. I am trying to do this to code (will get inspection) since we are in a nice historic district. But I also don't want to tear up the plaster/lather either. All electical boxes are buried under the plaster
I'm concerned about the code requirements for nailing down the sheathed electrical cable every 4 feet or so and the 12" from a box need. Some of my drops from the attic will be over this length(9'). For that matter I am bringing circuts up from the basement over 18-20 feet.
What is the best and easiest way to remain code compliant? (Indiana if it is important)
Many, Many Thanks, Doug
