Interesting trick...but, how could you discern the box from the wiring leading to it?  Seems like the noise would emanate from the buried wiring and the buried box you were looking for....

That was one of the coolest stories I have heard in a while.  Way to go MacGyver!  Next time, if you could try and find a way to use chewing gum foil.

It was a great solution to what could have been a difficult situation between the electrician and the drywallers.  Though, it was a little careless of the drywaller to lay board over the electrical box.  Usually, they look for those things.

Got to say that was a neat bit of trouble shooting! But it certainly leaves me wondering what the heck the box was doing buried so far back of the wall board surface.

I agree, Beth. This is a pretty clever solution. I beleive this blog is appropriately named Sherlock Ohms, since the solutions usually come from deductive logic in the spirit of the original Sherlock.

Clear cut example of how patience, a practical eye to problem solving, and some tried and true detective work pays off and helps avoid a big clean-up job down the pike.
