comment Best practice for oily rag safety?
@Johnny - I know that flammable rags have caused problems in laundromats. Maybe lightly saturated might not cause a problem, but explosions have happened due to flammable rags and the spark of a motor starting.

comment Is this fluorescent light fixture a major electrical problem / fire hazard?
Nice picture of the date code: Sep1965...that means the warranty ran out in 1970. I think that ballast got its moneys worth.

comment What are the pros and cons of different types of smart switches (that are on the US market) ?
X10 is not around any more. All you can find online is just the lesser used products. I work for an X10 dealer and we've had no contact with them in months. I think the world will be a better place.

comment Is my window air conditioner cooling properly?
Make sure the fins have not been mashed together so air can get in. If so brush the fins lightly with a brass wire brush.
