Maybe not all is on your mentallity level. Some people can't feel electricity, others it will knock clear across the room. I have seen some real cobbled up stuff in my life that was only moments from causing a fire. I do all of my work and have it inspected. If a person is not comfortable then they should call a "Pro". By that I mean someone that knows what they are doing. There are many electricians out there that will take a job on the side for a few bucks after hours.you obviously know not to do any dumb stuff, but dont listen to the people that are so concerned about your safety that they tell you call a pro. I had the same prob and everyone I called was like " if you dont have any experience..." I hung up and hard-wired my crap in. all im saying is - its just another trade. be cautious, do some homework, drive on.
