  • Why is it such a strange concept to other 16 year olds that my family likes to raise and grow our own meat and veggies ?

    Best answer: Just is a very healthy way to eat and live. More people should do that. The food you grow yourself has mire nutrients and and fewer chemicals that anything you buy at a supermarket.

  • How do I run new wiring through my house and garage?

    I probably could figure it out, but I ask because of permits or whatever. How hard can it be really? I unplug things all the time.

  • Why is my light flickering?

    We have changed our light switches for dimmers, and they now have LED bulbs but they flicker. This is a sort of slight flicker between brightnesses, not a strobe effect.

    We have changed our light switches for dimmers, and they now have LED bulbs but they flicker. This is a sort of slight flicker between brightnesses, not a strobe effect. You don't really see a visible difference in the brightness of the room, but it's a bit like having distant lighting that you see out the corner of your eye. Any ideas what the problem could be? Is it the dimmer switch, the light fitting, the bulb? Or is there more to this that I don't know about? Thanks in advance.

  • What drill bit to use for wooden studs?

    Best answer: bits should be sized slightly smaller than the screws you are going to use, esp in old, dried out wood [such as studs inside the wall in an existing house].

    number 8 wood screws -- 7/64ths pilot hole in pine [most studs]. number 10 screws, use 1/8th and number 12, use 9/64ths.

    Hello, am looking to repair my Bathroom wall, I have just moved in to a flat and looking to sprooce the place up a bit, have just had a new bathroom fitted, but the walls an eye sore!. After removing the wall paper wish was slapped on (badly) I'm looking to plaster the wall. I have attached a photo with in this post, my first question is, it appears Simone has filled the crates in the wall with multi purpose wall filler, can I just want this down get the wall smooth and level as possible and plaster straight over? Or repair the wall with plaster instead of the wall filler? My second question is, is the wall currently there a backing plaster? Would it just need skimming with two coats of multi finish? What's the correct player to use?, will I need a pva mix or water for absorption? The wall has a few cracks, holes and crates in, but I feel it looks worse then it is, the wall I sent crumbling all over the place, it's not loose or anything, I'm eager to give it ago myself, I have a tiny bit of plastering experience from a college course I did a few years ago, other then techniques and how to spread it in the wall I'm pretty clueless, or can it be dot dabbed plaster boarded? Any help would be great guys, doesent need to look fantastic just a basic finish that's able to be painted will be great, Thanks alot Aaron

  • Thinner and stronger than plywood?

    Mold has decayed areas of floor so we want to clear the mold and then reinforce the floor with something thin and strong. The first thing that comes to mind is plywood, but is there anything (wood or metal or anything) thinner and stronger that would do a great job? (Least expensive would also be a bonus!) Thanks.
