Found this sitting on top of HVAC ducts
Tick Tester said it was live.


Always good to have a spare just laying around.:shock:

Nice find, not so good if in live wires in contact with metal duct work.:shock:

Are you referring to the tool that I used to this wire.

Over 20 years in construction 3 of them spent working with electricians of which everyone carried this tool to check wires. I think Ill trust the tool.

In any case all the homeowner needs to do is prove the line is not live and remove it, or properly terminate it.
