      Coincidentally , I recently had a flat tire, courtesy of a screw.

      Nice! I found something just like this in a wall in my bathroom! A single constant drip. Fun.

      I’ve never run across black Romex. Must be for a dryer or a range.

      Type NM-B cable first began to be manufactured with color-coded jackets in 2001 to aid in identification of the conductor size. The color code that was introduced, which continues to be used today is as follows:

      14 AWG White
      12 AWG Yellow
      10 AWG Orange
      8 AWG Black
      6 AWG Black

      It’s old. Probably for a range.

      I have always been impressed by the skill and creativity of cabinet installers, whose “forever” long screws always hit power and water lines while missing the backer blocks that were installed for their use. True professionals who can trip circuit breakers by just walking into a room.
