comment Can I support a granite countertop overhang with embedded steel bars?
@lenny Check my answer below about using square stock. I found that it worked fine. I wouldn't recommend standing on it but it seemed rigid enough. I suspect a welded lattice would have been better but my way has held up. Just be sure than when you place the slab on the subtop that you have fully covered it (using notched trowel) with your adhesive. Don't just use a few globs (as I have seen installers do)

comment How can I T splice a 120V line in a lighting fixture?
Regardless of your splicing method, it must be enclosed in an accessible junction box. It cannot be open on top of the fixture.

comment Do acrylic glu-up tub surrounds require backer boards, waterproof membrane underneath?
Greenboard is typically not an acceptable shower back. I don't know if it's allowed when adhering a PVC surround.

comment How can I determine what grade air filter is appropriate?
I tend to use the highest grade filter I can find in a traditional hardware store. This is a relatively inexpensive item that prolongs the life of my ductwork and equipment. A few extra bucks a year.

comment What could be causing my kitchen drawers to be sliding out?
So your tracks weren't actually level. They were vertically level but they were sloped in like this: / \ .. the tighter screw pulled back of the track outward which encourages the drawer out. Adjusting the screw gives you tracks more like | |

+1, it isn't the drawer that is unlevel. It is the track!

comment How to tell that projector needs bulb replacement?
@Joe The pixels are not stuck. It's not an LCD. It's a DLP projector and these are dead mirrors on his DMD :(

@amphibient yours is a DLP projector, then. This part may be user-servicable but be very careful working around the light engine.

It depends on the projector. You may be able to replace it or it may be under extended warranty.
