Re: Chandelier wiring

It was only a consideration because of a realtor's suggestions. I have a misc budget that I can add to it, but I'd never throw more than 3k at it.

Re: Chandelier wiring

I just wanted to say one last "Hi Dia" , before the inevitable :shock: We'll miss you :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: Hey, when are you coming to visit me and help me change my fuses to breakers? I have $1700 budgeted and some guy tried to quote me $4000. He seemed shocked when I said no thanks. I have yet t...

I'd also add that you should wear gloves and a helmet, too. Also have someone nearby, to call paramedics if necessary.
This is what I've always suspected!

Chandelier wiring

I'm used to writing or grooves/texture on one of the chandelier wires, but what's what with these colours? I hate touching electrical, anybody want to come get paid in copious amounts of beer to do this stuff for me?

Re: Where to cut tile

Sounds good, it'll be almost 3/4 of the tile, so I'll keep the cut to the top. I'm sorry you get people's negative opinions on things like that when you've chosen the best possible options for what you had to work with. There will always be the judgemental negative Nancy trolling around.

Where to cut tile

Okay, another tile cutting question:

If I am filling the back of a soon-to-be shelving area with subway tile, and it'll fit perfectly left to right, but not top to bottom, do the cut tiles go along the top edge, the bottom edge, or both evenly?

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

You could certainly inspect it all yourself at your leisure, and post pics here if you need an opinion. That wire there is fine, it just has its outer clear film sheathing torn for a few centimeters. No big deal. That film just adds a bit of extra heat rating to the conductor, and it's largely inta...

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

But I sure thought it was weird that an "adult show" had a cartoon intro. ...so the high-numbered antenna channels those shows were on were too fuzzy to watch. ...whatever vintage show was still being syndicated on local channels we could tune in clearly. What mean you by this "adult show" I don't ...

"infraction against us for carbon monoxide" what does that mean??
We got testing done, and even though we have functioning co detectors, the basement fireplace is gas and is the culprit, but didn't set off any alarm. The infraction is just our notice that we have 60 days to fix it.
