comment How should I secure the inner ring of bearing race to a wooden frame?
Yes, I would definitely go with the bolt. As a general rule wood and machine parts don't really mix to well - if you look at any wheel assembly, even, say, a handtruck, wood hasn't been used for axles since the middle ages :).

comment How should I secure the inner ring of bearing race to a wooden frame?
Again, the inner race doesn't turn. No motion=no wear. As long as you make sure to get the right size bolt and nut, you will not contact any moving parts. You don't have to go all the way through the work, unless the work is really thin. Even if it is, and you do go through it, you can just cut the end of the bolt off with a dremel. The real trick is drilling a perfectly vertical hole. You need a drill press or really steady hands.

comment What steps should I take to figure out which alarm model I have and how to go about installing a missing sensor?
I would look to the keypads to determine make/model. Generally these are sold as a kit.

comment What is the minimum drill voltage/power required for a plumbing snake bit?
Called cust service - funny enough, they said I was the first person to call in with that question. They actually took down my number and got back to me, so thumbs up on that manufacturer for going above and beyond on a ten-dollar item.
