  • Posted in thread: How to bend PVC faster ? on 11-03-2011 at 09:42 PM
    Just wondering, why would anyone even want to go through all the trouble to try and bend it
    when in less them 1 min. I can add an elbow.I found offsets to be a nice touch. But I think you
    can even buy...

    First of all I would never use open flame to heat pvc, especially indoors. This is not a good
    thing to burn, and it is a touchy practice, more like an art. If you over heat you make a weak,
    brittle ar...

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I have looked at it again now that I'm less frustrated and

    When a panel is wired in, it can be easy to overlook tightening down all the neutrals on the

    Wow. Never heard of 4 switched outlets in a room. Not sure what they were thinking when they
    did that. Personally, I'd do away with the switched outlets and make them constant hot if I
    were installing...

    Adding a switch would not only be nice, it's practically necessary. Unless you want to be
    turning the breaker off whenever you want to work with the wiring in your ceiling box, put in a
    switch. Plan b...
