      I'd go with bridle rings. Bridal rings are only big enough for one piece of NM, don't have any convenient way of attaching them, and are much more expensive.

              Are you using a beach wreck ignition device?

                Heterographs are the other way of looking at the pairs more commonly known as homonyms or homophones.

                  It is much more likely to be the result of ought-to-correct than beach wreck ignition.

                    When I was young I did. Definitely did when I had a helper. I went under because I was much faster than any helper I had.

                      I fail to see how going under is faster than standing on the floor and running the NM through the studs. Sure, you have to drill the studs, but you also have to walk out, crawl under, search for the holes, etc.

                        Heterographs are words that sound the same as other words, but they have different spellings and different meanings. For the English language learner or for young students, these words can be very confusing.

                          Wanna race? The drilling of the holes and the insulation interference is why I would go under. It also looks real clean when done. I square everything in the crawl space also... NC does not have to use running boards if you prefer not to square it up.

                          Some houses have so much wood in it that you are changing bits or have a second drill ready with the longer bits just to get thru the studs and corners. Then you have to nail plate. Gebnerally I would not have to use nail plates.

                            I was mainly talking about inside walls where there isn't (usually) any insulation.

                              Yes but once I am under I stay there....
