comment What is the max distance between top of gutter and the roof tiles?
It's still a maximum slope run of 96' - you're just adding a 2nd slope run end to end ;)

You only need about 1/4" over 8' run towards the downspout. If your gutter STARTS directly below the drip edge, to reach a 3" difference between drip edge and gutter, your gutter would need to be 96 feet long. That's a problem I'd like to have...

You should not push the tiles back beyond manufacturer recommendations because you need to make sure you have a proper drip edge. If you don't have that, water will collect at the end of the tile, wrap around and soak into the underlying surfaces that aren't supposed to get wet.

Only I think if you're constantly tightening/loosening the nut in question.

comment Is it normal for air to be leaking from where the drain hose connects to the central A/C unit?
@Mario - as I understand it, no - flexible gas lines are perfectly legal in many districts.

comment How to stop a circular saw from locking?
It's locking as you're making the cut? Not locking up when it spins freely?

comment How do I disable a lock?
Replacing the handle would not be MORE effort than what you want to do. Replacing the handle would take removing two screws, pulling the handle apart, and inserting the new one and putting two screws back in. It would cost you about $30 to "do it right".

comment I removed this non-load bearing wall in the corner of my basement, now 2 doors upstairs rub on their frames. Why is this?
There is way too much going on in this one picture to know what your'e talking about. Where is this "Small 1x1 bit"? More detailed photos please.

comment How many blades should a decorative windmill have?
Seems awfully subjective. This is about it "looking nice", right?
