    You're making the project more difficult than it really is. When I've had to match colors I
    simply obtained small amounts of varnishes, stains, etc. that I judged were close and applied
    them to scrap ...

    Running new circuits to the kitchen is the solution. I personally don't see a need for a
    temporary fix.Dittos. A mere 15a line in a kitchen, particularly with a MW oven is not up to
    code and is dange...

    It's likely that after spreading your loads over the new panel, there'll be less
    near-overloading on the branches. It's a big job to replace all your wiring, but wherever
    practicable, it should be don...

    Don't see a problem in running your Romex as described. I have used combination devices such as
    you have and have installed them in recent times. Why would you question its safety? There's
    one in my o...

    Regardless of the math, I have yet to hear any complaints of false ringing from any of my
    installations. None of them are in isolated areas; there is plenty of electronic activity
    around where I've us...

    Assuming all's well with you electrical wiring, I do not see a problem. I have in the past
    added outlets and switches in older houses. Hopefully, you'll mount the boxes securely into any
    existing jois...

    I've had success with wireless doorbells. However, for your instance I would buy a system that
    is a cut or two above the basic ones such as you'll find in Home Depot, etc. They all are coded
    much like...

  • Posted in thread: Every Other Breaker Doesn't Work - HELP!?? on 01-03-2010 at 06:41 AM
    It is likely that the main breaker failed, i.e., one pole has. Have you tried excercising the
    breaker several times? Can you temporarily bridge the dead side with a jumper to ascertain that
    the breake...

    bluestorm: My only inclination would be to try another regulator. You might also google search
    to find a regulated AC supply just for the computer; they are available.

    jkirby65: If your switches are the old type with two PBs that I'm familiar with, you may find
    them at a flea market or ask some electrical dealers if they have any old (archaic) stock.
    They'd love to ...
