    Re: un_BX a BX?

    The term Gondolla is slang and shouldn't have been used. What I really mean is a conduit body. Please see this .PDF file for some good info on them. They are made in cast iron and cast aluminum. I think you may like one of them for your needs. Think of the brand name Appleton for these.

    As for a wire pulling box, try to think of a square or rectangular box made out of steel and normally galvanized or painted gray. The back and sides are full of knockouts for installing connectors. The front is a flat panel held in place with screws. These come in a little 4 x 4 x 3 size up to 12 x 18 x 8 deep as standard and I've seen some huge ones out there. Think of the name Hoffman for them. There are other manufactures too.

      Got it. I call it very generically "a thingie" and yes I saw them in stores and they seem like something I will be looking into.
      Damn, these 3/3 wires are hard to bend.

        Thanks all for your replies. It turns out I didn't have to un-BX my BX. The inspector was at my place yesterday. Everything went well so now I have a shiny sub-panel and separate electrical circuits in my garage - all to myself.

        The inspector happens to be also a hobbyist woodworker, so we had a chat and I got an address to a inexpensive source of decent lumber.
