Unidentified wiring method


Recommended Posts

This wiring method is likely the first to be installed in this morning's house. House likely built before K&T but I didn't see any. Didn't find this stuff in Douglas Hansen's book either. Anyone know what it's called?

Many farm barns were wired with this stuff during the twenties and thirties.  REA was started in 1935 and often used "handy" farmers for installation. Wasn't unusual to see two sets running parallel.  Not right, but farmers welcomed "electric" in any form!   

Bill, do you know what it was commonly called?
