Splicing Done WrongSplicing in newer style wiring into old knob and tube should be placed inside a junction box. Also, consider that the old knob and tube should be replaced when possible as a gradual upgrade to your electrical system.

 The old way of splicing was done by soldering the splice together and then wrapping the splice with a electrical tape that has a cloth appearance. The shiny electrical tape is a dead give away that it is not of the older accepted way of splicing.

 The seller has agreed to have this fixed at his expense..around $300.00 dollars.
