Cable Management One of the secrets of efficient electrical rough-in is managing the cable so it doesn't become tangled or twisted. The Wire Wheel cable dispenser — which was invented by a professional electrician — makes it easy to pull cable from the reel without dropped loops or tangling. According to the maker, the device improves on conventional cable spinners in a couple of ways: It's freestanding, so you don't need to clamp it to exposed framing; and cable can be stored inside of it. Prices start at $130. Associated Electric Products, 800/361-6314.
