light Switch


Is there a way to wire up a light with a switch with the source entering the switch and then continuing on to either another light/switch or receptacle without using 3 wire.

Sure your hot and neutral can go like this.....

HOT......... splice............rec.......etc
sw......light

Neutral......splice........rec........ etc
......light

The switch box would have three cables in it. Feed in, Feed out, and switched leg to light.
