John - You can buy just the pins that go in the connector without the connector body. Typically when making a connector, you connect the wire to the pin then insert it in the connector. A local elect

If you are not tied to Cornwell and just want that function for home use, I have a set from harbor Freight that works well. Curr

John - For the future, if you want to build up an inventory, you can add a tv tuner card to your PC and record with Windows Media Center - either from cable or over the air. I have a Hauppauge dual t

Try the easy thing first and pull the release so you can open and close the door manually. It should be easy if the springs are correct. Hold the door open about half way then see if the door stays t

Depending on the depth of the markings, you may just be able to wipe in some paint. First clean well with paint thinner and let dry. Then paint in the markings and wipe off with a paper towel. If you

I want more power, but will $160 plus tax and bits make a big difference? Can anyone compare a Harbor Freight rotary hammer such as this one:

If I did it, I'd run it in PVC conduit. 1/2" conduit is cheap and may even offset the extra cost of direct burial cable. I'd be concerned about a rock or rodent damaging the cable over time. If you a

I second the vote for over the air if that is an option where you are. I had basic rabbit ears, but upgraded because I was tired of loosing ABC and Fox during recordings. I now have an outdoor antenn

Marty - I was looking at as an inexpensive option. In your case, it doesn't have a camera option available, so you would need two systems if you want video recording as well. S

I have the cheap Harbor Freight version and recommend this type of tool as well. They are great for close quarters where you don't have room for a bigger tool. They also provide much greater control
