comment What DIY tools are very critical for plumbing works and repair?
That 'pipe cutter' is a PEX cutter. So more of a 'tube' cutter. It won't cut copper.

comment Is there such thing as join-compound primer? And, is there a need to prime before texturing a ceiling?
As a homeowner I'd ask you to please not texture ceilings!

comment What type of primer and paint are better used in a bathroom?
@TheEvilGreebo do you have more info on the wood=oil based? I've never used oil based paint on primed wood. Latex has always seemed to work fine for me. Aside from sealing pine, perhaps, is there other reasons to consider oil based on wood?

comment What type of primer and paint are better used in a bathroom?
@Evan the primer you need is standard sheetrock primer--though if you have any glue residue from the wallpaper, that may require something slightly different.

comment How to determine if a ceiling fan has a DC motor?
That's a really nice fan, though 60" might be overkill for every room in my house. ;)

comment How to determine if a ceiling fan has a DC motor?
Yea, google can probably answer this question, but I also thought it was a good SE question. It's not a topic I've seen brought up much elsewhere. As for sticker shock, well, $300-$400 seems fair for high quality fans, IMHO. In my old house, I had installed a $300 fan and it was clearly a much higher quality than these Hampton Bay things.

comment What are the primary differences between air paint sprayers and airless paint sprayers?
good info! I had always assumed the air sprayers were better but it sounds like the airless is exactly what I need. Makes it a bit easier to plunk down the money to get one now. Regarding back rolling, is that something one should always do? Or is that for particular types of materials?
