Hello Malcolm,
I took your advise and checked every breaker with a ohm meter.
This turned up nothing surprising.
The coil did not strike any wiring or fitting.The affected wiring is on the 
other side of my basement about 50ft away.

To no "avail" perhaps? If the breaker is unpluggable, you might want
to pull it out and check it with a multimeter to see whether it realy
does still complete the circuit. There are almost no clues in your
piece which help assist in troubleshooting save that there is a
problem common to several circuits (in my country at least the
lighting circuits are fused/breakered separately from the outlet
circuits). Did your coil strike an electrical fitting at any stage?
