comment How to drill Stainless Steel?
@punkbit - looks great. Heller is a great German manufacturer. Make sure that the diameters in the kit are what you need.

comment How can I hang small weights from a drywall ceiling in a way that's minimally destructive?
Firstly, potted plants are pretty heavy, especially when watered. Secondly, how will you remove this theoretic anchor? If the goal of the small hole is for ease of removal and patching up, I'm not sure your suggested method will work.

comment How can I create an “invisible” transition between different flooring types?
A suggestion about the illustrations - how about grooving the last laminate or hardwood floor piece so that the transition piece will be flush with them as well?

comment Trying to secure a 100lbs floor mirror so it doesn't tilt over. is it possible to do this without a stud?
If the mirror is resting on the floor and you only want to secure it to the wall to prevent tipping, you don't need great strength. Perhaps even a toggle bolt in the drywall will be enough.

comment Why is there no water pressure after turning main off then back on?
Do you have any filters on the main line? I've had a filter before the heater clog after shutting down the water and turning them back on.

comment How is the alternating current in your home a complete circuit?
Neutral doesn't carry the power to earth. It is connected back to the power source, i.e. the power plant.

comment How can I run Ethernet cabling through concrete walls?
If you have multiple phases you need to bridge across them, which might add to the complexity of the solution.

@alx9r all the construction I've seen uses conduits, but I will amend my answer. Thank you.

comment How can I run Ethernet cabling through concrete walls?
Existing conduits typically terminate at outlets - power, telephone, TV, etc. Tracing where exactly they are going is difficult. Some stud finders can locate power lines, but I'm not sure how reliable they are, or if they can find low power cables.

comment Where can you find out how repetitive the patterns of a particular laminate floor are?
Also can't help you with Quick-Step, but my Krono-Original laminate had 8 different designs. Preparing the boards and layout beforehand will help minimize visible repetitiveness, especially when taking the actual floor visible into account (i.e. not floor covered by furniture).
