comment Lights and outlets on multiple circuits out but no circuits tripped. Power back to normal after several hours

comment Why did oiling cause this crank to become dirty?
Probably any oil or grease you use will cause dirty to stick. Your best bet would probably be dry silicone spray.

comment Help connecting cat5e cables for home networking
I think you might be right. Looking at the twist of the pairs, it does appear that the beige cables may be 4 pair CAT-3 or CAT-5 (not CAT-5e).
