    That's an interesting way to take the sag out of a ceiling. 1900's house doesn't have to comply with today's code. UNLESS
    As far as comlying with today's code. No it does not.
    But, if you wrapped that knob and tube around those metal hangers, maybe, NYUKNYUKNYUK

    JP,

    Just how old are you anyway?

    (I know, you didn't say "I don't remember having perforated...", just yanking your old chain again.)
