comment convert a hardwired lamp to on off switch
@JimmyFix-it - how do you install a switch on a wall fixture if it doesn't already have one?

wait. so each bulb is controllable on its own? i.e., the fixture stays hot and the bulb can be dimmed or turned completely off even while in the fixture?

comment convert a hardwired lamp to on off switch
This seems like an interesting idea, but I don't have a wall switch for my light. All of the options I've seen seem to interface with either a plug or a wall switch.

comment convert a hardwired lamp to on off switch
@JimmyFix-it - I've found a small subset of hard-wired lamps that have an on-off switch on them (just like the ugly 3 that are already installed in my house). I want to know if there is a way to attach the wires for a plug-in lamp with an on-off switch, to the wall wires, so the plug-in lamp becomes a hard-wired fixture.

Well, this is a very thorough instruction, but it doesn't really answer my question.

No, I mean cut off the wire plug and connect the wire to the wire that's currently attached to the existing fixture that I want to replace.

looks like what we'll have to do. today there's no getting out to a hardware store for one anyway, even if there were any at our local stores.

comment Why won't HVAC supply stores sell directly to the public?
Extending the logic in your answer: every job somebody else does takes money out of your pocket as well. You can't really do all the work, and you have to share. There are comparatively few DIYers and imho DIY mentality should be encouraged, not obstructed. Legal constraints that stem from advanced training required to do a dangerous job safely is a different thing. But that wouldn't explain these suppliers not selling to the public.

comment Is there a good way to store and organize try/combination squares?
For plastic or non-ferrous tools you could use binder clips, which will stick to the magnet, and can clip the square.
