I'm the sole developer for a publishing house, doing on-line courses and exams.

We have a web designer, who typically does layouts and courses, but I do anything that involves programming logic.

On a second look, it appears only approved for 12v solutions.

As far as I can tell, Flat Wire is only good up to 40 watts. Not enough for a ceiling fan. BUT, if you can find a source of 1800 w (15 amp) wire, I'd be interested.

comment What does breaking the tab on the neutral side do to the outlet as a whole?
In all likelihood, It's simply there so they can use the same part as on the other side.

comment How can a ventless (gas) fire box be put in a wall safely?
I'd get rid of any ventless gas appliance in my house. Even if the technology works perfectly, there's still a huge amount of vapour produced. And if the technology fails, and you get a Carbon Monoxide exhaust, you could be dead.

comment Why won't my recessed lights illuminate when they have power?
I think we're going to need a wiring diagram as installed to work through this one.

comment What is the best method for carrying a 4x8 by yourself over tough terrain?
Can you enter a description? Sometimes the images don't come through, and the answer becomes useless.

comment Storing food in dry ice box. How much of the dry ice?
You may want to try cooking.stackexchange.com as this question is about food storage, not home improvement.

Are you talking 4'x8' panels? Or 4"x8" beams?

It's more likely that the tile contains asbestos than the adhesive.

My guess is that the cage is there to stop insulation from touching the bulb.

comment What wire gauge is needed to replace old wires in a vintage chandelier?
Please don't answer questions until the asker has clarified what the question is. Making the wrong assumptions could kill someone.

comment What wire gauge is needed to replace old wires in a vintage chandelier?
Is this in-the-wall wiring? Or is it wiring in the light itself.

comment Can I run electrical wiring through basement ceiling joists?
Another alternative is to nail running boards (1x2, 1x3) to the joist bottoms, and then staple the NM to it. Although, future finishing of the basement then becomes problematic.

This is one of those things where it's best left to the professionals.

At the price that will cost, you might as well just buy the torches.

comment Rating for the outlet does not match the breaker.
Note that in a 240 v installation, the two breakers should have a bar across them so that flipping one requires flipping the other.
