  1. Not that it would be any better or worse if someone had cut their Romex and spliced in to run off in a different direction.

    1. But Romex would at least use wire nuts and it includes a ground.
      It would also still be illegal because any splices require an accessible junction box.

  2. The ceramic tubes are greatly desired as crack pipes. BTDT

  3. Just one reason why, although I work on 500 kV on down, I tell people "I don't do 'residential'."

  4. Still have it in sections of my 1921-built house. Romex in the rest. So far we seem to be doing well after 37 years here.
    But I am not an electrician, nor do I play one on TV...

    1. The National Electric code says that if you (a licensed electrician) does anything to modify Knob and tube, that you have to replace the entire wiring.

  5. The ceramic tubes make great knife sharpeners.
