I found these jewels in attic. Home owner complained that they were getting shocked in the bath.
GC removed bath flooring (tile) to find knob and tube wiring. K n T was in very poor shape. so we come in to remove and replace and find home owner handy work. I heard today that the seller(Mr.handy man) told the owners that there was NO knob and tube in the house.

As a bonus the wire nut on the black wires in the handy box fell off when I barely touched it. I used a small vacuum to remove the insulation
