comment Why are some submersible well pumps wired with solid and others stranded?
Amperage and voltage should be the same as long as it is building wire. Some fine stranded cables handle double what regular solid or stranded, but price is high.

Actually we suggest either a resin kit 3M 82A Series for underwater or cold shrink for moisture tight seals. A lot of times the insulation on heat shrink is too thin.

comment Is there a name for PVC pipe that's approx 1/2“ ID and 5/8” OD?
It is very important to remember that if the ID is larger than the OD, it is not pipe...(;-)...sorry, couldn't resist.

My grandfather used coal for heat and when it was delivered it was piled up not far from his house. Maybe the is where somebody kept their coal kept? It could have been mortared over after they switched heat source.

comment How do I choose a circular saw?
My saw is actually a cheap Craftsman, but between a table saw, a chop saw a mitre saw I don't use it unless I absolutely have to or don't want to dig the others out. If I bought a saw it would be a worm drive, but with my arthritis and other ailments, it would just collect dust with all my other power tools. But I gotem if I needum.
