comment How do I remove stuck (melted?) foam from under carpet on hardwood floor?
We also did all that, and also had the nasty black stains. We eventually found a much easier solution than sanding/staining - I'm sorry I never posted it before today. Please see my answer below.

comment Just bought first impact driver, do I still need to pre-drill holes?
What if it's not prone to splitting, like a 2x4? (or are 2x4's prone to splitting as well?)

comment Why are GFCI systems typically in the receptacle instead of in the breaker?
"but is beyond the skills of most amateurs" - I disagree with this statement. Installing a GFCI breaker does not take much more "skill" than installing a GFCI outlet.

comment Can Romex (NM-B) be run through conduit?
Yes we've all heard this, but as far as I can tell it appears to be an urban legend. The conduit is already surrounded by several layers of rubber, a very good insulator of heat - the pipe it all runs through adds very little extra heat-insulation. But whether or not it's an urban legend, it's not supported by NEC code (see above answer).

comment Receptacle Tester Showing Open Hot
I'm really surprised we don't have a question asking what 'Open Hot' means already, given how basic of a question it is.

comment Is there such a thing as an actual 60W draw LED or CFL bulb?
A low-wattage laser can burn you because those the energy is focused into such a small area. I don't see how that's relevant to the wattage of LED/CFL bulbs at all.

comment Why would two circuit breakers be connected inside the service panel?
@Tester101 If that were the case, there'd be an open circuit between the two legs and both breakers would pop. I think his numbers must be wrong.
