    Fine dust coming out of forced air heater duct

    Yes, it is highly likely the work of Powderpost beetles. If you find small holes on the wall then it's already a sign that your wall has been infested. It's a good solution to call for pest control right away.

    AC ventilation in small windowless garage office

    I'd suggest that you install air grilles if you're concerned about the air flowing from your ac.

    Can't really tell from the picture. But yes, the manufacture date can be seen on the serial number most of the time. I ran an age check on my Panasonic AC a while back, and it's so old that I can't even find anything related to it on the web.

    Lubricating a tape measure

    WD40 works just fine. If it looks dirty/dusty, try to wipe some of it first.

I'm currently deciding between Calcatta Quartz or just opt for a gray quartz countertop to give it a little bit of depth in the design but Calcatta also...
