If you’re interested in a DIY project, but don’t want to take your time to do it yourself, check out this electrical box extender I recently made. If you’re just looking for an inexpensive way to extend the life of an outdated electrical box, this is a great option. I love how this piece of art turned out and I recommend giving it a go.
This project was a lot of fun. I bought the parts from the used parts store and made it my own. The only problem is that the box wasnt constructed from scratch. Its a piece of hardware that was made from an old electrical box. The box was a cheap replacement box for an older version. I also found a couple of old wires and some leads from the box that I used to make my extender.
That’s why I recommend you give it a try. It will add a bit of vintage flair to your home and make you not just proud of your work but also proud of what you are doing.
It’s a simple and cheap solution to a problem. Sure, it’s a bit weird to wrap the wires and leads in a box, but if you’ve got the wire cutters (or an electrician with a set of tools to do it) then you can get the wires and leads out of the box and wrap them up in a little ribbon of silver and gold.
I have a box that I use for my extender but you can use your own DIY box. I use the one I use for the TV antenna as an example, it has four wires coming from the box, two coming from the top and two from the bottom. They could be used to run cables from your TV to your computer or stereo.
It’s pretty easy to extend the length of a box. That’s because the components are designed to be able to be taken apart and moved around and reassembled. You can wrap wires and leads in a ribbon of silver and gold.
I’m not sure how much of an issue this is going to be for you, but I’ve seen a lot of people use small screw driven electrical boxes that have a lot of exposed copper wire. It’s not a great idea to use copper wire as you will then have to solder copper parts, if you want to make sure the exposed copper is not a hazard. I would use a metal clad copper wire like those used in the TV antenna extender.
Oh wow, it doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t make sense that you could use a “tin foil” wire and not worry about exposing the copper. Copper is toxic, and you dont need to worry about it causing a fire. If this was a tin foil wire you would only have to worry about the exposed copper when the tin foil was being heated. I believe this is a tin foil extender.
I think that a tin foil extender is a really good idea. I think tin foil is better than copper. However, copper is more hazardous to the environment, and more expensive to buy. It also makes the wire look nicer, and the exposed copper is a lot less likely to burn out. However, you are still looking at a hazard to your home because if you were to have a fire, the exposed copper could easily be a fire hazard.
In my opinion, a tin foil extender is better than a copper extender. The copper extender looks a little nicer, and it looks like it might be more “safe.” But it is still a hazard because it is more likely to catch fire if it is exposed to the elements.
