comment What are my options to repair a broken tab on a bus bar?
I've had two electricians suggest that replacing the panel is the correct course of action because if one tab on one bus bar had broken off then its likely that others are also likely to go soon. A cheater and some shuffling would work but may only delay the work.

Also the cable run from the panel to the A/C disconnect is only about 6 feet. Running a longer cable to reach a new breaker shouldn't be a showstopper.

The current panel is completely full. I need to find room for a double pole breaker. I have one good slot open. So if the cables are long enough or can be rerun, I could do this with a single cheater breaker. Put the cheater in the single good slot and free up two slots for a double pole.

@Tester101 - Always a pleasure to see you chime in sir. Edited the question to include this option. What would justify or negate this as an option? Wall space? Slots? Some sort of load calculation?

comment Wood trim and new gutters: Gutters first or paint first?
Is this question too broad for DIY? Maybe I need to break it down to several separate questions for each phase of the project.
