    Funny as in how? I have an old (1929) house with mostly updated wiring, and newer switches. I too am going to rip these out and get the ones from Restoration Hardware. A little pricey if I remember...like $20 ea. Also ripping out the 1990's bathroom and going back to 1930's fixtures, wainscotting and tiles.

    I wouldn't trade my old house for anything...unless it was a bigger, older house.

    Whoops, now I understand; pulling the knob and tube. Heterosexuals would read that as an electrical expression.
    Now I know where OR's mind centers.
