comment How is it that two breaker switches control the same things?
Wouldn't that mean that when both breakers are on, we'd have a short between the two legs? This would either blow breakers or make the monthly electric bill absurdly high.

comment What is the best way to apply Shellac-based primer?
Good answer from personal experience. I edited this question. I assumed you met intoxicated due to fumes. Please correct if I was wrong.

comment How should I landscape my yard to make my home more efficient?
This is really a broad question. I'd try and break it up to individual project sized questions and ask those separately.

comment How do I prepare doors to be hung?
The chiselling took about 5 minutes per hinge with a sharp chisel. I used the router bit in my drill to scribe the outline and set the depth. Then it was a bit of tapping to get the field out. It was dead easy in comparison to my free-hand approach on my first attempt.

I give 24 hours before NARQing a skimpy question. This is a prime candidate so far.

comment Is plunging a toilet without a plunger a good tip or a horrible idea?
The important question is "Why don't you have a plunger?" They cost about 2 bucks in the discount store.

comment How do I achieve required torque when using an impact driver?
Typically an impact driver will spin freely until things tighten up, and then it will go into impact mode. When replacing a wheel, I know that my driver, at .5s in impact settings, gets my nuts close to the the correct torque. Then I do the final adjustments with the hand wrench.
