comment Random light switch behavior
Plus new switches are inexpensive and way better than a broken switch that could potentially start arcing inside and become a fire hazard.

comment Electrical circuit dead, wire seems broken
@aet - I have to say that I have two wire tracers, one cheap one and one that I paid about $75 for and both of them give very disappointing results. The one that is supposed to help find a circuit breaker from a branch circuit is really a looser because it flags almost every breaker in the box.

comment Refinishing Front (Fiberglass) Door Advice
There could be a possible issue here. Even though a surface could look dry from the stripper and mineral spirits there could still be a residual and lingering amount left behind where it affected the stain. This would be particularly applicable if the first side you stained was the last side stripped.

comment Refinishing Front (Fiberglass) Door Advice
That was not an answer to the question I asked. I was wondering how much time you waited after the scraping and cleanup with mineral spirits was all done till you started the stain application.

comment Hardwood floor to french door transition
Often doors need to be trimmed off on the bottom for this type of situation. A picture would help though.

comment Refinishing Front (Fiberglass) Door Advice
How much time did the door surfaces have to dry and let the vapors from the stripping gel and mineral spirits dissipate before you started applying the stain material?

comment Plywood plate for mounting to wall
Not really. Even if the projector weighs a small amount by the time you get it on the end of a lever arm it can impose quite high forces on the fasteners. What I propose should work quite well also for some of the adjustable monitor arms.
