I inspected a house today that a new service panel installed from 100 amp. to 200 amp. about 6 years ago. They ran 12-2 coax out of the box a few feet and tied into the existing Knob & Tube and BX. The breakers in the box appeared to be the correct size for the branch wiring. My questions are:
1. Is this an acceptable practice?
2. Why would you go to the trouble of installing a bigger box if your still going to use the the same number of circuits and the same old wire.
3. Is knob & Tube wire considered safe as long as it still has the coating.
Thanks, Brad Myers
No relation to Joe. However Joe, I think you're a pretty inelegant person.
