    I need to know the name of the curved pipe in the image so I can replace it.?

    I'd like to know what this pipe would be called in a hardware store so I can find it tomorrow when I buy a new one. If anyone knows, or knows any way of finding out, that'd be great. Thanks!

    My son’s room only has 1 outlet. He needs power to the other side of the room where his night stand is. If we run the cord along the bottom of the wall it will have to cross a doorway. Our idea is to run PVC pipe up the wall, around the room, and down the opposite wall with the pipe attached to the ceiling. Is this safe? Or is there a fire risk having an extension cord in a PVC pipe? It will not be inside the wall.

    Hello yahoo i have a 5hp Powermatic table saw. It overheated and shut down; it doesnt smell like burn or anything. Its connected with a 4-wire 220/230v. I bought this small shop turn key and the previous owner did a mickey mouse on the prong which i wasnt aware of. For some reason he grinded the small hook from one of the prongs which allowed the plug to go into the outlet multiple ways. I was changing blades so i unplugged it and plugged it back and i think i plugged in a bad position where the wires dont match. Could that have fried my motor? Thanks

  • How important is “perfect” insulation in your exterior walls?

    I’m replacing the siding on my old home and have found some voids in the insulation. The house currently has shiplap siding sitting over the original tongue and groove redwood. The redwood is proving to be very difficult and time consuming to remove and I would prefer to leave it, saving me sheathing costs and time. However, the voids in the insulation concern me in terms of temperature loss. It’s only a 1-2 inch gap but from what I understand, if it’s not completely stuffed, it serves no purpose. I’m going to guess every third cavity between studs has some sort of air gap. Is it worth removing the original tongue and groove siding to completely fill the wall cavity or will it not make a noticeable difference? I don’t want to waste my opportunity to fix something I won’t have access to later. Thanks!

    My girlfriend and I are wanting to replace our fence. Its old and slowly breaking down. Right now, we have a pretty standard wooden fence, which uses 6 or 7 foot metal poles as a brace for the fence. We would like to extend this to having an 8 foot fence, vs a 6 foot fence. We will not be paying a fence company, this is something we're going to do ourselves. Is the only options to completely replace the poles, or are there extensions out there? I've shopped around at lowes/home depot and haven't found anything. Thanks!
