If the polyurethane ripped between two revolutions of the wire coil without anything to cause
high local stresses, I am pretty sure suturing it will cause very high stresses at each suture

I bought the replacement electronics and wall controller. The new Intellitouch III uses RF
signals. It should be less sensitive to a spike over the power line. So far, so good.

vacuuming flower beds, that has split about 1' from one end. I saw the receipt from the

My 2008 Casablanca Ventura fan has died. The W32 wall switch works, but neither fan or light

For these electricians, that is right. A few seconds of cutting would have saved me hours, and

I could not settle for the foam solution alone. The first picture is what I found after taking
off one piece of siding. It shows how well someone's hammer works. The sheathing had vapor

Posted in thread: "Sloppy" valve needs turns to flow on 04-17-2011 at 07:04 PM
The hot valve in one bathroom faucet requires 1 1/4 turns before the water starts to flow, and
another 1/2 turn to get medium flow. The cold water valve gives good flow at 1/4 turn. I have
had both ap...
