comment Prevent air leaking from couplings on an air compressor hose
The Teflon tape did wonders for the threaded connections. I don't have any leaks now.

comment Prevent air leaking from couplings on an air compressor hose
When the hose is connected both the tank and the regulated guages only get to 60 PSI. With no hose, both get to 140. I'll double check the quick connect on the compressor to see if it can unscrew.

comment How far apart is it okay to set thermostat during night and day
This particular room is over the unheated garage, on its own zone, and leakier than the rest of the house. Pretty much the worst possible combination for this type of problem. The additional insulation I added directly behind the radiator helped a lot.

comment How can I convert my under cabinet lighting from halogen to LED?
I got a test bulb. These bulbs do work. They are very flat, so the bulb fits great. The color temperature and flickering on low won't pass the WAF (wife acceptance factor), so I'm not going to be replacing all of my bulbs with these.

comment Garage Door Opener Light loosens in socket. How to fix?
Would something conductive like a piece of aluminum foil do the trick?

comment How do I fix a warped kitchen cabinet?
Luckily, I had taken the drawers out before I cleaned the oven so that the drawer fronts wouldn't get damaged. I couldn't find any adjustments that I could make to the rails. Everything was screwed in as tightly as possible.

Like many of the other bulbs suggested here, this one is too large to fit. The bulb is 1.5 inches in diameter.

The test bulb came. These bulbs are 3/4 inch in diameter and 1.5 inches base to top (not including pins). Too large to fit in my under cabinet fixtures.

Yes, the G8 socket is 120 volt AC. I was afraid that the fixtures would need to be replaced. Thanks for the info.
