"Fishing Insulated Walls:"

From:Mark D. Shepard: SSHEPARDM@CS.COM

You can easily fish an insulated wall with very little overhead working room with a folding rule with a hook on the end made from a short piece of steel fish tape. Tape the hook on the end of the rule and use a jack chain on the hook.You can also fasten two folding rules together with electrical tape to fish greater distances down insulated walls. This is a fail proof way to fish down insulated walls. When you think you are close to your cutout reach in and grab the chain and remove it from the hook that you taped on your rule and use chain to pull conductors through the insulation. This method works great! This idea was passed on to me from Tim Kaminski at Lockheed Martin Akron, Ohio.
