comment Can I just glue the “fin” thing back onto my dryer?
Without knowing the make and model, it's difficult to say how difficult it would be to repair.

comment 2 prong to 3 prong outlet help
Are there ground wires in the box (you'll have to remove the cover plate, and possibly the receptacle to see)? Is there a brass colored tab on the yoke where the mounting screw attaches the receptacle to the box (you'll have to remove the cover plate to see)? Maybe turn the power of before taking the cover plate of, definitely turn it off of you're pulling the receptacle out. If the box is metal, and grounded, it will provide enough of a ground through the yoke for an outlet tester to call it grounded. Whether or not the yoke provides an adequate ground, depends completely on the device.

It sounds like you're not in the US; so I can't be sure, but it doesn't sound like you're doing it right.

comment What material to use to clog previously cut central heating pipes
You should definitely use an appropriate cap to seal the pipes. Filling them with random materials, is not the way to handle this.

Why do you need conduit, are you planning to run exposed in the garage? Why not us NM in the basement, and switch to condit and individual conductors in the garage?

comment Suitability of flexible metallic conduit serving as ground
Maybe @SpeedyPetey would be able to identify it based on the photo.

comment Suitability of flexible metallic conduit serving as ground
Seems odd to me that a builder would use conduit, instead of a factory assembled cable.
