    I'm looking for a low cost (live) line tracer (110v 20A) like an rf
    signal generator and tracer. I'm looking to trace wires in live bx and
    emt in apartment buildings.

    Would appreciate any help with this.

    Thanks

    How about plugging in an electrically noisy item like a drill or
    anything with brushes in the motor, then using a portable AM radio
    tuned to a blank space on the dial as a detector. Wave the antanna at
    various wires. When you get noise coming from the radio that's the
    line your tool is plugged into.

    Look in the yellow pages for a telephone internal wiring guy. They
    have those things.

    Good Luck!
