    However, all this discussion may be unnecessary, if the PO can't cut the wall, as he mentioned in his other posting.
    Dj1, if the outlets are daisy chained, which is common even though on separate walls, a loose or broken connection, neutral or hot, on the first will knock out all the other receptacles. 12 ga wire will fit in the stab connectors and I have seen it done many times.
