I think that perhaps the Electrical forum is the best place for this question... not sure. I figure the Electrical guru's have the most experience with wire fishing.
Anyways, I we are doing a kitchen remodel. The original light in the kitchen was just a big ugly fluorescent light in the middle of the room. We took it out and I've made all the necessary holes for recessed lighting.
I've gotten all the wire run between the lights except for one final light. It has been a very easy process up to this point. Take a look at the attached image. The brown lines are floor joists for the room above the kitchen. The yellow are the two lights.
What I've discovered is unfortunately some type of air duct between two of the floor joists. I have drilled a small hole in the joist at Light 1 when I discovered it. I can't tell for sure, but I think it's a round duct and I do not think it takes up the entire space between the joists.
So let me get to my question. What is the best way to get electrical from Light 1 to Light 2?
I am trying to avoid cutting open the drywall in the ceiling because I am simply horrible at re-texturing. I am pretty handy around the house, but drywall texturing I have failed horribly at in every case.
Does anyone have any good suggestions? I have the proper wire fishing tools and drill bits long enough to span two joists.
