New Electrical boxes in lathe and plaster?

Posted by Paulypfunk on February 21st, 2001 10:31 PM

I want to add some new outlets to my walls but the old lathe and plaster has me concerned. What is the best way to cut the hole. I figured that I could use retrofit boxes with wings for that stay fresh feeling but is lathe and plaster sturdy enough to hold that weight? I have paint over wallpaper over plaster and I want to avoid large holes for fear of a poor match on the repair. Advice o' sage craftsmen?
