Thank you for the ideas. Setting it up exactly, but to the side should do the trick. I'll admit, I had hoped you'd say its fine to limit the base since it lasted 90 years just on soil.

I don't think I've posted here in ages, and this is work I've never tackled, but would like to.

I have not described this well, but the switch would be on the edge of a long wall, so the box will slide into the long face of the stud, the face that metal studs already have holes. This is 90...

Thank you for the replies!

It's bx cable, the metal armored stuff.
