comment Can I use my wet-vac to shampoo my carpets?
@MartinCarney the trick is using very hot pressurized water, and having a strong enough suction to pull it back out the carpet, otherwise it will take forever to try, and still be slightly dirty. If you wanted to go all in/whole house, the wand certainly makes it easier ;)

comment How can I identify the conductors in an appliance cord with only the green wire colored?
I want to add that the OP can take a multimeter if available and use continuity mode with the NEMA chart you added, by touching one lead of the multimeter to a polarity blade and the other end to each wire, whichever wire beeps is the winner.

Well, you're going to at least need a drill bit, then do something like this.

@sharptooth Good point, b/c at that point to tuck it away you should get a general purpose toolbox/bag, which, although, a good one can be had for cheap, adds to the overall cost. However.... woodworking already takes up some space, so...?

I may be digging too much into your personal business, but what's wrong with buying a drill? A decent multipurpose drill for the home can be had for under $50, plus the cost of the drill bit you require. It would also be equivalent to renting a drill, and would save you the time (which equals $ of course) that would be spent doing it a less optimal way, especially when dealing with a hardwood.

Take a closer look. It has four hinges, two places that swivel. Still no?
