comment Security for Outswinging Door (Patio) Not Sliding door
Oops! That should have been "hinge" (I blame Naruto). Anyway, those terms are very Googleable (Example).

Step 1, make sure the door has non-removable henge pins or concealed hinges. Without those, most anything else you do is moot.

comment Is it possible to use the ice maker on a refrigerator without a water supply line?
Do a test run. On many fridges, the tray will barely fill or the valve will not operate properly without sufficient pressure.

comment Troubleshooting a circular saw that quit working
@ChrisCudmore, nevertheless, it used to be a very common, subtle hint that something might be wrong. ;) You kids with your plastic, cordless stuff might never know the joy of the 60Hz shuffle.

comment How do I drill a hole in a shelf without going all the way through?
Good point. Doesn't always work (tight spots, small pieces, non-flat pieces), but worth remembering.

comment How to separate the two parts linked by these hinges?
I used a program called Fireworks, but there are hundreds of photo editing programs out there -- some for free, and including free websites IIRC.

comment How to separate the two parts linked by these hinges?
@craig, that's probably not an issue. The door is metal; I've never seen one of those with a glued-on mirror; it will be framed in some manner. ... But even if the other side is not easily accessible, he can reattach the door by using pop-rivets.
