I have a couple 3 1/2" metal octagonal boxes in my garage ceiling (drywall). I want to replace or run from them some electrical outlets.
I saw many 4" receptable covers that I could just wire outlets into. Just my luck I have 3 1/2" boxes, and I can't find any outlet covers for 3 1/2" octagon boxes.
Is the best thing to do here run from the octagon boxes to new outlet boxes (basically making them into junction boxes) or is it better to rip out the 3 1/2" octagons and replace with outlets? Or is it all the same either way, just matters what work I want to do?
