I tape everything. Things are better with tape. Tape prolongs an electrical installation by 37% and saves 14% more lives than using no tape. In an emergency, old tape can be removed and re-used for an a more important issue.. its good to have tape everywhere, never know where or when you'll need it. Also I've never been shocked because I tape my fingers every morning before starting work.Tape? Some guys can't leave that stuff alone. I still have 75% left on the roll I got last Christmas.
One thing that I have been addicted to since doing electrical work is scraping. Now, I understand that when your full steam, like the way it seems you are, you dont have the time to pick up every bit of scrap wire laying around. But leaving a bunch of scrap wire on a job site is like leaving a twenty dollar bill on the ground, it hurts my feelings.Are u referring to the 12/2 NM temp lighting line running thru the ceiling? I should have scrapped it but left it.
