    The ultimate newbie!!!

    You got it. I quickly learned that I could no longer rely on a landlord to do repairs. It was do them myself or pay to have someone do the repairs. Guess what, it's really expensive when you hire someone to do them. I better learn quickly. I think this is the drill I ended up buying...

    So the bits are always sold separately? They never come in a set that could be less expensive than buying separately? Also are bits pretty standard in what parts they have or can one get different types containing different pieces? I’d like to buy soon. Thanks.

    Well, I have some basic tools but not a whole lot. What basic tools would a homeowner need to make different repairs around the house? The only thing I'm thinking I need at this moment is an electric drill set. Thanks.

    Help with this...

    I am building a UV light box (it's a photography project). The instructions I have are not very good and they don't tell you how to attach the ballasts (the wiring) to the sockets where the lamps will be attached to. These are the sockets I got...

    Ice maker on my Fridge

    Cheers! We own a KSCS25FVMS01 (KitchenAid) fridge. It stopped making ice like a month ago. This was not the first time it had happened. This occurred every time the "teeth" of that part came off the unit and I had to put it back in place then it would resume making ice again. The part...
