I'm trying to locate a run of wire in the middle of a circuit in the house. 
I could crawl all over the attic raking back insulation to trace it but 
there has to be a better way for an old man to do this..

I'm looking for a device that will locate a circuit midway in a run of 
wiring.  I've seen what Lowes and H.D. offers with the little plug in thingy 
and the other part that you use to check each breaker to find which breaker 
controls that plug... but will this device work by placing the 'wand' along 
the line between the plug and the breaker ?

Seems like it should but before I spend 30-40 bucks and climb in the attic 
it would be nice to know ??  OR does someone know of a device that does 
exactly what I'm needing ??
