How to remove a metal electric box
Any tips on how to remove a metal outlet box, the older ones that have "ears" on the top and bottom that are nailed into the studs. They are secured very well. I posted some time back regarding this, and someone mentioned to take a bar and bend it out. This seems to be destroying the wall. Any ideas. I am trying to replace the wire going from the outlet to the basement. So I need to remove the box, run new wires, and then use one of those old work boxes. And I am trying to avoid major drywall repairs.
