Comment from anonymous user: Check out the USG website and look for the submittal sheet for sheetrock gypsum panels. Most conscise and yet thorough information I've seen on drywall.

comment My dryer heating element broke in two: Can I just wrap the ends together?
@AlienMartian A fuse will blow if there's an excessive current. AFCI breakers are specifically designed to detect arcing which results in a fire, and that will not be prevented by a standard fuse.

comment Should I peel off the top layer of vinyl in preparation for tiling?
I would think a layer of Hardi-backer or concrete board that shirlock suggested would work better than the mesh. It would make a level surface, and give the floor a lot more strength, and be a whole lot easier to put down, without needing to pull up the vinyl.

@ppumkin, I have to disagree with you here. Sometimes people don't ask the right question and we have to provide a different answer than what the OP was asking, but that doesn't mean we should bad advice just because someone asks the wrong question.
