    Help on Top Rail Repair for Chain Link Fence Gate

    Hello, Thanks for the replies. I think the coupler or sleeve option is the best and easiest option for me. But while looking at my local hardware stores websites I can't see any of these couplers/sleeves being sold. Top rails and other components for the chain link fencing but not the...

    Help on Top Rail Repair for Chain Link Fence Gate

    Hello all, Was wondering if someone could help me on this attempt at repairing a gate to my chain link fence. Now this gate is fairly big, haven't officially measured it yet, but I think it's at least 8ft across, enough to allow a truck to get through into the back yard. The top rail on this...

    Maybe but if it was it wasn't done by me, nor my wife I don't think. We have not done any digging of the sort since we moved in.

    Could both sides of the romex be broken? The wire came from the light switch into the junction box and was connected/spliced with lugs to romex coming out of junction box. If 3 out of the four wires were open what are the chances that both sides of the romex have broken wires?

    Back again. This is what I did this time. I opened up junction box and seperated all the joining wires to try to isolate them and used my digital multimeter to measure for resistance on each wire to ground within the box. The only wire that came back with a good result was the white from the...

    Back again. The above pics of the wiring has since been changed and cleaned up a little but still hasn't changed anything regarding the outer garage lights. Wiring looks like this now. Upon further inspection of the junction box, i thought the the wiring of the switch connected to the...

    Help with Outside Garage Lighting

    So I fiddled with the with my Fluke again today and this is what I did. I isolated each wire this time by using tone generator and putting the red clip on each wire white, black and red(I was mistaken thinking there wasn't enough wire protruding to clamp onto, but there was) and the black clip...
