comment Can I oil a squeaking tap?
If you know the make and model of the faucet check the manufacturer or big-box home store website for a manual that will show you how to disassemble it.

comment How do I install a coat rack on drywall over concrete?
"I can't drill into it with my 12$ power screwdriver or hammer into it" - Pretty clear sign that its concrete or maybe a metal firewall. Crazy idea, see if its metal. Your stud finder might report this as wiring, or you can get a stout magnet and check.

comment Drilling “misting” pin holes in PVC
Drill and tap your PVC then you only have to get the misting nozzles. Still some investment, but not as much.

comment How do I install a coat rack on drywall over concrete?
You seem unsure if you are hitting concrete or not. I assume you have holes in the drywall already. Can you see on the other side? If you have drilled holes, what color is the sawdust? Lets make sure we're dealing with concrete and not something like a composite wood (grey plastic) or a tile backing (looks like grey drywall).

comment Which tools should not be operated while wearing gloves?
Adding on to @Tester101 - gloves appropriate for the work and weather are important too. You wouldn't wear stiff leather gloves to clean a carburetor in the parts cleaner, you wouldn't wear winter gloves to saw lumber summer, and so on.

You have the right mindset, but keep in mind that no livable home is impermeable to intruders.

comment GFCI outlet won't come on
"By a professional licensed electrician" - Call the electrician. Two reasons: 1. If its bad work, then he should make it right. 2. If it is some other circumstance, then he'll be familiar with the install already and should be able to update it quickly.
