comment How do I join pieces of wood tiles, 12“ by 12” pieces, to make a larger slab?
+1 For the "buy bigger" comment. Certainly that is the American way.

Are the AC power wires connected to the receptacle using poke-in type connections?

comment How to get limestone out of water?
High mineral content in the water is indeed really problematic in cases of equipment used to boil or evaporate water. It will be less of a problem in your washing machine where the water is not normally boiled or evaporated.

If the water was already hot you would have no need for a heater.

comment Block view, but allow sunlight from windows
It is my understanding that you do not want to use the reflective type films on dual/triple pane windows that are filled with an inert gas and sealed around the edges. The reflective film supposedly can cause the window to heat up to the point where the gas expands to the point of blowing out the seals.

Can a saw like this come close to cutting through an 8" thick railroad tie?

comment Why am I getting no power to the branch circuits with a new sub-panel?
I do not understand the down vote here. Despite who downvoted -- @Jeff -- You wrote right in your posting that "I've re-installed all the breakers...". If that does not sound like you put all the previously installed breakers back in then it is a new language to me. If you had said "I've installed all the new breakers..." then there would have never been a need for me to post this answer. That said my answer is a valid consideration for anyone coming to read this thread learn some details about replacing a panel.
