Just to satisfy my own curiosity, can someone tell me at around what time these were used? I just pulled this one out of my ceiling. Thanks for your time.

How old is the house? Looks from around the time that K&T (Knob & Tube) was in use.

Thanks for your time. I am not sure how old the house is. I know I have been here myself since 1978 and want to say that the house is around 70 - 80 years but am not certain. The house is currently wired with BX and I do not see any signs whatsoever of knob and tube. Every ceiling in this house has one of those except the few I have replaced with boxes. Thanks again for your input.

Does the BX land in the holes with the set screws?

Yes, the BX are held in place in the holes by the screws. Thanks.
