comment Welding RSJ against Bolting
This would help more if you had some specifications of the beam, (I, C, etc) as well as the dimensions and span width. This will compromise the factors to the certification, the fact that the weld was certified means the quality of the weld is good enough. The Welding does affect the strength of the beam, but this will be factored into your load capacity of the span, given a welded beam.

comment How do I drill into an existing galvanized fence post?
I would also add that you need to ensure that your drill bit it sharp and that the drill edge is well centred, there are different cutting patterns for differing applications, and when you diy sharpen drill bits, you may get an offset cutting edge, trying to drill in one specific spot is then a challenge!

If you have a multimeter you could test for a short in the fridge cable, whilst off, you can use the multimeter test prongs on each of the plug pins to see if any of the wires are "fusing"

comment Replacing G4 halogen bulbs with LEDs
