    Other than "more is better" was there any reason for double staples on each cable?

    Only the 3-4 feet between the 2x4 and the ceiling. The SER was a bit resistant.

    Old timer tip for driving nails in tight spots

    GeorgB, observant question. I don't know if he used this method or not, but you can hold your lineman pliers up against the nail, then hit the linemans with a hammer (on the non-pivoting side) and it does a suprisingly good job of driving nails. Again, just take care not to strike or mar the pivot in the linemans or it will make them difficult to open/close.
