comment How can I remove a stud from a load bearing wall?
Interesting point. I'd be curious to see how much load transfers laterally vs vertically in such a scenario. I agree, some will transfer - but what percentage, I wonder?

Any particular reason why? The bottom plate won't transfer load laterally very much.

A good consideration but does not answer the question asked.

comment how to cool your roof naturally?
Do you have an abundant water supply? Spraying the roof with water will help cool the roof.

comment Why does my shower head drip when the tub faucet is on?
I FINALLY replaced the line between the mixer and the spout with copper. Works perfectly now. (Don't ask why it took so long - 2013 was a very bad year for us...)

comment Why are “Wire Nuts” not used in the UK?
I'm a landlord with 6 units and every time we've bought properties my inspectors have used outlet testers. I have no idea why they'd want to open up the outlet and play around with bare wires...

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.

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...)

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.

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?

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.
