Yes, 12 point sockets are typically for engine building and specialty. Emphasis is on obtaining 6 point sockets.

comment How do you remove the stick-on child safety locks from appliances?
It turns out I was able to yank them off with some muscle without damaging the surface. They are a foam backing, so while Joe's suggestion did not work, peeling them back did work well without needing to apply any WD-40 or similar.

comment Where can I find garage building plans?
Free would be nice, but I'm personally willing to reward an architect/supplier for having a good design.

comment Can I use a 50 Hz device in a 60 Hz power frequency?
Heating elements may not care about 50Hz to 60Hz, but probably will care about dropping from 60Hz to 50Hz. Doing so will make it work harder because the voltage spends more time in the positive and negative peaks and therefore draw provide more current. This effect also overheats anything with windings, like electric motors and transformers.

Make sure it's rated for the power of the espresso machine or you'll burn out the converter or the espresso machine.

Sure, I wouldn't mind a large container of scalding hot water surrounded by FIRE in my bedroom closet.
