Never mind, figured it out. Turning the water back on caused the bread to get stuck in the kitchen/bar sink's screens. Cleaning them out = Great water pressure! Now I can wash my beer glass...

Tracing Circuits

I'm installing halogen pot lights in my basement. In prep for this, I began to take the two old florescent fixtures down. These fixtures were wired into a common 15A circuit for that room, and...

I thought of LEDs, but the brightness of the light and smoothness of the dimming doesn't match up with what I'm looking for (I really wish they did). I'm thinking I'm going to stick with the Halogen...

True...actually, I'm pretty good at fearlessly drilling holes, although drilling into fiberglass and gel coat has me freaking out a bit since a bad drilled hole isn't easy to fix.

Okay, I cut the...

Thanks for the reply.
