comment Leaking Supply Hose
Is this shutoff valve indeed a free hanging thing between two flex lines? If so this seems rather odd to me. All sink supplies that I have seen use a shut off valve that is joined to a fixed pipe that comes out of the wall behind the cabinet or up through the floor from below the cabinet. I would guess that 95% of the shutoff valves from the store are a type is designed to connect into a fixed line on one side and the flex line from the other side. There is a very good chance that the valve that you have is not designed for the types of seals used on flex lines from both sides.

comment Why are carpenters' pencils flat?
@Joe - I think you are wrong on almost every point. The carpenter pencils I have used over the years have always met every point made by Tester101 and then some. The scribing techniques described are a very good point and really not feasible with a round pencil.

A picture or two would go a long ways toward helping to illustrate what you are asking about. I pretty much got lost trying to navigate your paragraph.

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.

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?
