I'm replacing a fluorescent ceiling fixture in a kitchen with at least three recessed fixtures spaced 48" apart. The ceiling joists run perpendicular to the path of the cable. I guess this is a job for a Greenlee Diversabit. The existing box is where the center fixture will be and I have to drill through at least two joists to get to the next fixture. I have not used these long bits. Any tips or comments?

Do you have the positioning tool that goes with it? It's necessary for best control. I have bits up to 72 inch. I haven't used them too much, only when necessary. I've got this thing about drilling into the "unknown" [Linked Image]Haven't had any accidents with them, but it's easy to see how something could happen when you can't see what's there.

Good Luck!

Yes, I forgot to mention the controlling tool. I know what you mean about the unknown. I'll do my best to prepare and scout the area.
