  • Here's an "extension cord" using the big-style plug
    solidwire_bu...
  • I will cut off the plug - the other end will become the receptacle
    solidwire_bu...
  • Push the wire thru the conduit.
    solidwire_bu...
  • This one is troublesome, but trying it in different angles worked
    solidwire_bu...
  • When it comes thru the back, I can pull it until the receptacle comes to the baseboard.
    solidwire_bu...
  • Now I can glue in the baseboard and the receptacle - BUT this isn't the kind of receptacle I like best.
    solidwire_bu...
  • Starting over... I use the plug to mark the wall
    solidwire_bu...
  • The prongs of the plug have made target dimples in the wall
    solidwire_bu...
  • This is a Real Good Toys "EL-66" tool with a 1.5mm pin (the larger pin)
    solidwire_bu...
  • I am testing the holes I made.  The 1.5mm pin sticks out far enough to make a hole the right depth for this kind of plug
    solidwire_bu...
  • Poke wire thru the conduit
    solidwire_bu...
  • separate the two strands
    solidwire_bu...
  • Pinch the insulation and pull it part-way off
    solidwire_bu...
  • Use the insulation as a handle for twisting the wire strands
    solidwire_bu...
  • Keep twisting as you pull off the insulation
    solidwire_bu...
  • This twists all the strands into a single wire
    solidwire_bu...
  • I like to bend the wire over to leave it about 1/4" long.  The insulation on one lead sticks out 1/4" farther than the other
    solidwire_bu...
  • The wire with the "farther out" insulation goes into the top hole
    solidwire_bu...
  • This shows the differende between the "large Eyelets" (used for outlets) and the "Small Eyelets" (used for making connections)
    solidwire_bu...
  • The Large Eyelet on a large pin (1.5mm)
