Help with Wire 'Looping' inside a box
I decided to rip down the sheetrock in my hallway rather than try to strip off 3 layers of wallpaper and as long as the walls are open I thought I'd change the old #14 cloth covered wire BX cables with new #12 BX (it's a 15 amp circuit).
The problem is this: There is a 2 toggle switch box and one of the black wires has the insulation removed in the middle of the wire so it can loop around the screw and continue over to a screw on the next toggle switch to give that circuit power. The #14 wire is thinner so it was easily bent but the #12 is thicker and harder to bend and also I'm not sure how you can easily remove the plastic insulation mid-stream like it was done previously.
Anyone have ideas? Thanks.
