    That is an interesting method. Hadn't tried that yet. Sounds easier than trying to push something through. Hmmmm. Thanks for posting that!

      Your Welcome,


      I have been using that method for many many years, I had an old timer electrician show me that when I was working with him while I was in high school.

      That was how he fished his pull chains to pull 200 amp wires through 6 inch conduit.
      he would start with a string and then the chain.

      Why oh why didn't I just leave things alone, they had been working.

        As an old time electrician, baggies were not around. We used sponges (the big soft kind) trimmed to a ball shape to fit loosely in the conduit

          Well to be completly accurate he just used a plastic bread bag tied up. I switched to the baggies.
