    As did I when I first suggested fishing, as well as possibly the enhancement of using a fishing device with a radio emitting transmitter or a camera to assist in locating the directional path and terminations of the ducts. Can encounter difficulties with a plain fish tape in insulated high velocity ducts where they may sag slightly, make a bend, and especially if they were coiled when recessed behind the new wall board; however, like tearing or piercing them with "regular" fish tape.

    Sounds like it might work. A guy could also stick a ping-pong ball on the end to aid in passage.

    Hi.
    Get the original contractor back to fix it!
    They should have done it right the first time.
    Now it will cost him more to do it right the second or third time.
    Maybe he will learn from his mistakes??
    Unfortunately, NOT, once a hacker always a hacker!
    Nobody is perfect, but why has he not come to take care of his OVERSIGHT!!!
    It is your aggravation, but you must make it the contractors aggravation also. You paid for the job to be done correctly and completely! You would not allow your auto mechanic to do a brake job and not put the tires back on your vehicle.
    Give it to them!
    Good luck!

    call the contractor back and see what he has to offer. Sometimes being nice can get you better results. You can always play hard ball later. Didn't they use up all the mud on the drywall?

    I don't feel like reading back through the whole thread, but didn't the original poster say something about the contractor being out of business?
    The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
