If you're using a metal detector maybe your wall is plaster on wire lath, there's such a thing as electric heat elements embedded in walls or maybe steel studding. You need to know what your wall construction is, and do you mean 3.5mm holes for screws?

Nobody on this site can tell you that it's OK, especially with the lack of information you've provided, but I can tell you that a safe grid tie inverter must have at a minimum: Proper over-current prevention. This means a fuse or breaker sized to the lowest rated item in the current path. Do not just select a fuse size based on the inverter. If you're ...

funny, but the examples show also that when a hand was cut, it was very often not the chain operator, but somebody helping ! So for your specific question regarding gloves, i would think it is not that useful preventing YOU from being cut at all, but more to prevent you from debri and getting splinters when actually doing the job itself, cutting down trees ...

The hardhat and chaps (leg protection) protect the areas that are most often involved in the saw cutting the operator. Given what I know about how chainsaw chaps work, I doubt any gloves you could ...

If you have a device that draws 10amps, then the entire circuit needs to support that draw. This includes the circuit breaker, wire gauge, length and receptacle rating. In the US where the household voltage is 120V, a typical lighting or outlet circuit is 15Amps, but you're only supposed to use 80%, so that leaves 12amps available. All other devices on ...

You need to trace the outlet back to the circuit breaker/fuse in the main panel and then see what amperage is carried by the circuit. Then you need to also find out what other outlets exist on the same circuit and what appliances are or can be plugged into them. If you overload a circuit (e.g. run your oven at the same time as running a circular saw out of ...
