    I have been in & out of the attic from one end to the other all day installing a new door bell system. It is done it makes noise and I only got zapped twice, note you should never put a naked wire in your mouth to hold while connecting the other end.
    I am done for the day a snack and a np is the next two things I am getting!

    Here's a hint: Install the whole bloody thing first. THEN hook up the power.

    Don't bother asking me how I know this. I don't remember. :D

    Bruce I tried that twice and they only work when they are close, they just wouldn't work through the concrete interior walls.

    Does installing an electric fence count? After I was finished and turned on the power, the dogs would just go under the bottom wire, no effect! I swiftly touched the upper wire, and nothing! I gave it some thought, and decided that the tennis shoes I was wearing were insulating me. I knelt on the ground, and reached out and touched a wire, trust me it was hot! 750 volts of hot! Dogs still go under wire when they want to. Can't figure it out!

    8 inches of concrete with 2 inches of solid wood (no plywood or paneling) all either heart of pine or pressure treated even the closet walls are built this way. I figure if I was going to remodel the place do it once and be done with it. still working on some small items and some trim but just about done. How you doing on your place?

    When doing home electical repairs I recommend wearing goggles (Shooting shades will do) thick rubber gloves and rubber boots, preferably a bright colour (Yellow is best) so if the lights go out you can see where you're standing more easilly.

    Best of all, think how cool you will look?
