    Gray schedule 40

    Carlon vylon dwv PVC I schedule 40

    Do I use the same glue/primer as I use for white schedule 40?

    I have some purple primer and Oatey clear PVC cement?

    Is that all compatible?

    Thanks! I'm helping my buddy in michigan - I'm not used to dealing with Romex. Or electric ovens for that matter.

    The old oven had a deep 4 inch box junction mounted to the back of the oven...

    It looks like it is going to be a brand new home run back to the service panel. No splice. I used the wrong phrase. I meant will a 40 amp breaker take up the same space on the service panel as a 30...

    Is it kosher to junction a 240 line?

    I'm moving the wall oven location from one side of the room to the other. This will be a new oven.

    Currently, the old oven is hard wired (not plugged) to a junction box behind the oven --- on a 30...

    What brand/type LEDs are you using?

    I installed 25 of the CREE 6 inch retrofits in my home. The lenses are air-tight. Considered caulking them in place but didn't do it. I may reconsider and go...

    Just curious. Why run 14 instead of 12? We were just doing some work on my mother-in-law's and the sparky told me her town is all 12ga./20amp now.

    I was wondering if more jurisdictions was going...
  8. Cutting a window/lite in to a steel skinned entry door.

    Has anyone here done this? And/or have a recommendation for a supplier?

    It's a steel skinned door with, what appears to be a wood frame and, I ASSUME, a foam core.

    Looking for something around...

    OK thanks for your help. I thought it was working as needed but it's hard to tell until I hook up the fixtures. Climbing up and down the ladder with the circuit tester testing scenarios isn't easy....

    The way I have it wired now is: hot wire from source in to one of the common (black) screws. Two wires out to the (2) separate fixtures. One of the two wires out is attached to A1 ..... the other is...

    There are two commons and three other brass screws. I'm guessing either common for the hot-in and the A1 A2 screws out to the fixtures. Yes?
  12. Can I use a (mistakenly purchased) 3-way switch as a single pole switch?

    It's a double (rocker/decora) switch I intend to separately switch two fixtures.

    There are three brass screws marked B1, A1, and A2. And two black "common" screws.

    I saw the electrician at my...

    Testing a Soun Touch floor heat mat.

    I'm testing a couple mats prior to installation. The label on the floor mat(s) says OHM range from 44-54. I'm getting a reading of just a hair over 15 for both mats. I'm assuming I don't have two bad...

    Yes, you did. And thank you.

    It's an old broan fan/light/heater original to the house circa 1971. It does have a proprietary control now.

    I need to add switches so I'm cutting a little drywall...

    Not sure if I have seen one. I should have posted this for our summer/vacation home that we sometimes rent out. My fear is that someone will leave the heater on for a week.

    I think you are correct. That's the way we will go. Also, I don't know if there is a nuetral in the switch box and some of those push-buttons require a nuetral.

    Thanks for that.

    For some reason, I have the hardest time navigating their site.

    I still can't find the double rocker switch on their site. I know it exists becauuse it's on HD's website here:...
  19. I need a timer for a bathroom fan/light/heater combo.

    The plan is to place the heater on the timer and switch the fan and light.

    I have to check again, but I believe the heater is rated at 1000 watts.

    The largest wattage timer I have run across is...

    Yikes, Jim!

    I've done that - left an open "shut off" line. That's a good point about capping them off just in case.

    I just watched the Bourne Supremecy - he busts the gas line off the wall and...

    That's a good point.

    That's a very good point. Or un-plug the thing. But there is always the gas.

    That's interesting you mentioned that person being electrocuted in that way. I was quizing the sparky on my...

    That's what I fear. I'm not worried about not knowing the answer. I worry about not knowing the question.

    I feel I'm fairly competent to at least ask the right questions. I hope.

    BTW, I found your comments on multi-meters to be quite eye-opening. So I did a bunch of research. I own one of the darn things I...
