    As he is cutting he lets the piece fall inside the wall. If you’re at home
    with an existing wall and you will have some problems. Bad video. Use a
    hammer to push the saw in not your palm. As his title says Master Inspector
    not electrician.

    I thought that they are usually attached to studs.

    if ur gonna complain then dont watch it, nothing wrong with using ur palm,
    i always use my palm, so does my dad and it works fine

    why not go to the stud and screw to it rather then using one of those cheap
    drywall anchor boxes?

    lol wtf? he just put that box in afterwards like nothing happened after
    that piece fell into the wall.

    if you look closely you can see that there isnt a bottom to the wall so it
    would have just been sitting on the ground below him

    @realtyv1 does it matter? its unfinished right under that piece of drywall
    so that drywall is just going to be laying on the floor dingleberry

    If I have concrete wall? 🙂 Video is not suitable for ex-USSR countries,
    cause there drilling hole in the Soviet concrete for one outlet takes
    approximately 50 minutes or 1 hour. And of course pain in hands.
