comment Can metal studs support a 64" plasma TV on a swiveling mount?
Something to keep in mind: You're planning to cover a section of the wall with plywood. You can cut access holes into the drywall in order to install anchors, so long as those holes are in the area you're planning to cover.

Thanks! That will be much easier, but I'm still glad I checked.

So you'd say it's not worth the effort to disassemble, then?

comment How to repair a shower corner bench
I have a couple more pictures; the one looking down on the seat seemed more "this is a corner seat" than useful, but I can post if you'd like. No, the seat is not disconnecting from the wall, and it feels solid. I also have a picture of the underside of the seat front, but being unpolished marble it didn't look terribly informative. I was hoping I could see if there was a companion separation along the top of that support wall, but it wasn't clear. My concern with trapping moisture forever is finding massive mold growth with the next crack, like putting a plague in a time capsule.

For completeness, do you have a link to the table you're referencing columns in?

comment Use baseboard to conceal wires?
Your corner-track could be hidden by larger crown moldings. If you need to move up the wall a bit (or punch larger holes in sheetrock) you could apply wainscoting to the walls. But then, sometimes the 'old english manor' look is more jarring than the cables. ^_^

comment What is the purpose of the “grounding” tab/wire on a 3-prong to 2-prong adapter?
@maple_shaft Is this something NEC or UL would have to approve? If unapproved, what stops them from being sold regardless? I've always believed your chain of connections was the expectation, and beyond the control of the adapter to verify. But seeing the entire chain typed out, I'm now skeptical about how often it ever really happens. (disregarding how often I see these in use by people who didn't bother to unscrew the faceplate screw and connect them)

comment How can we protect this furnace from environmental conditions?
So we can wrap the air ducts with insulation? Does it take special insulation, for fire safety? I expect probably the simplest thing would be to grab a couple of water heater wrap sheets, and wrap around the ducts.
