    This is not meant as a knock on the OP, but if you are going on a woodworking forum to ask that kind of question, it indicates that this is not a DIY project that they should tackle. I agree, it's...

    There's a WHOLE lot more to the installation than that. Ampacity & voltage drop are the easy parts.

    I'm an electrician & have done this kind of installation many, many times. But I won't offer any advice other that what has been given above. There are lots of variables and each jurisdiction has...

    Drilling holes in plastic is just about fool proof if the plastic sheet is clamped tightly between 2 pieces of wood. No chipping or grabbing. Super clean holes.

    I have not seen LED tube that have​ an external driver. Tubes that work with a ballast still have an internal driver. The ballast does not contribute anything to the equation.

    I don't understand the thinking in jurisdictions that require an exterior disconnect. If you have one that is accessible from the outside, then you need to be able to lock it on to prevent nuisance...

    You've brought up a very good point. I too have a problem with using fixtures that have to be thrown out when they fail. It's particularly bad in a setting where matching fixtures is important, like...

    I have used Plum Creek & it is much harder and more moisture resistant than the cheap stuff.

    What a shame. That's a very cool looking sign. But I think you'll want to reconsider the angle iron brace. With it solidly screwed & glued in place, there will probably be cracking or, ironically,...

    Thanks Derek. I found a place in Canada that sells them and am going to try one out.

    Derek, those look like they are crossing the line between rule & tape. How easily do they roll back up? Does the tab on the end move to compensate for inside/outside measurements? I like the...

    Yonak, I'm sure there are brands of ultra light MDF that are better than others. Most of the MDF trim that I've seen is made from the light MDF & is terrible stuff. Just look at the corners of...

    The quality of MDF varies widely. The stuff at the big box stores is the worst that I've ever used. I can't recall what brands are good and bad, but in general, you want to avoid ultra light MDF...

    We worked on a spray room for a cabinet shop that had 4 spray booths and a drying conveyor. They had it engineered to change the air in the room once every 30 seconds. While in operation, you could...

    The link leads to a 404, but I'm assuming your talking about the round top ones.

    They do not stand up well to high winds. Making sure that everything is pulled really tight & that it's well...

    I would be concerned about the gasoline & benzine content. Benzine is quiet bad for you & gasoline might make it stay stinky for a long time.

    The only consistently reliable way to mend polyethylene tanks is by plastic welding and if done properly will be as strong as the tank itself. Other adhesives can work if there is proper surface prep...

    That looks like some kind of crystalline growth resulting from a reaction between some chemical & the aluminum, maybe exacerbated by high humidity.

    Sorry Jack, but you lost me there. I can't see the connection between the 2 at all. Different tools for different purposes with completely different surface results.

    Generally speaking, a taller cyclone will separate the fines out better than the stubby ones. I have an Oneida and it seems to separate the fine stuff out really well. Very little get through to the...

    I wouldn't look down my nose at a belt sander any more than I would a Black & Decker Workmate. Both are very useful, if not high brow, tools.

    Seems like it's almost a cross between wax & paint. Nasty stuff to remove though.
