comment How can I install a cable jack without a box?
Cables get pulled on. It's a fact of life. This is a "Harry Homeowner" solution not a good DIY solution.

You might have to make one or have one made. There are a number of ways you can accomplish this - for instance you could get a piece of composite (aka plastic) "shoe" molding and a heat gun and heat form it into the proper shape to fit, (with a small gap) then glue it in place with caulk to the pipe.

comment How to repaint an antique exterior door?
LOVE the nails idea, Chris - never heard that one before. And I'd still remove the door and lay flat and since you want clean lines, tape the edges too.

Not terribly difficult as long as you pay careful attention to the wiring as stated in the answer. Switches are designed to be easily replaced.

Can't tell what you did wrong on the installation w/o more info. That's a different question.

Your picture does not clearly show how it has been affixed. Please improve your description of how the box has been mounted.

Ok, so you were working on electrical appliances while the power was on. I trust you won't be repeating that mistake...

I do not understand what you mean by 'the house fused'.
