This is electronics based and probably needs to be migrated.

comment Window casing and conversion from inch thick drywall to half inch
So I think perhaps we're using different meanings for terms here. The casing I talk about trimming is the wood you're measuring. You would install the drywall, then using the tools I indicated, cut the casing to be flush with the drywall.

comment How to determine if a 20 amp breaker can be upgraded to 30 amp
Looking at the picture presented, I am curious - do you think the printing will be legible, if you can find it at all without stripping the wire more than it's already been stripped (as in permanently installed...)

comment Is it acceptable to put the bathroom entrance in the living room?
Subjective. There is no right/wrong answer. Please refer to the faq diy.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask.

Ok perhaps I misunderstood your meaning. Could you post a picture of the window?

comment How can I protect my fingers while using a band saw?
Referring to other users here as 'wussy' is unnecessary. Being safety conscious is not a bad thing. A shame, too, because otherwise your answer is exactly what I was thinking.

True but not apparently relevant to the question asked.

comment What do I need in order to fix the sloppy work done by cable providers?
Organize is a vague term. Be more specific please. Are these holes in publicly visible spaces?

Have you considered simply testing the glue on a couple pieces of scrap pvc?

comment Are push in connectors up to code?
Does not address the code question. Looks like you're asking a new question which should really be posted on its own.

The first part of your answer is true, but doesn't seem relevant to the question.

comment Water Problems please help!
Water bill pricing is localized and cannot be answered. This site is for asking "Do It Yourself" questions - a question on how to fix it would be appropriate. This is not.

comment Merge 2 water line to increase pressure
I suspect that there are probably regulations that prohibit taking water from one metered system and feeding it to another metered system, even if you own both systems.

comment Beeping light fixture
It's a terrible and wrong answer. First, he's not fixing anything, he wants to know what's the beep and what to do about it. Second - speaking a landlord, tenants are generally responsible for small maintenance items, such as keeping the batteries in the smoke detector fresh. Calling the landlord will result in the landlord saying, "Change the battery". So what should he do? Look for the smoke detector and change the battery.

comment What material might be behind my old bathroom tile?
The question really cannot be answered because you won't know until you open the wall. It could be any building material used at the time. Thus I've voted to close the question as "too broad" (which is as close as I can get to "unanswerable".
