  • Cleaning musty smell

    The library card file which I had posted came from a deceased woodturners shop. It was full of screws, bolts and assorted other metals including planer blades from 4 to 12 inch, Some brand new. Anyone interested in planer blades let me know.   The case has been subjected to water or damp and has a musty smell and some black spots. Going to try Clorox today. Is there something to remove the musty smell?

    House electrical questions

    My son recently purchased a home and asked me if I would install an exterior electrical box/receptacle near his patio.  The best place to rout power is from the garage door opener receptacle.  I noticed that the wire to the garage door opener receptacle is 12 gauge and the receptacle is rated 15 amp.  When I traced the line to the breaker for the garage door opener, the breaker was 15 amp.  The wire from the main panel routed under the basement steps to a junction box which had other (newer) 12-

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style? Do you like leaving your footprint of knowledge behind f
