I recently removed the door hinges of a '31 Ford Fordor. That meant removing twenty-four really tight 5/16" fine-threaded flat-head screws that had been in place for 75 years. Door hinge screws are a

What's the best way to drill a nice clean, round 3/4" hole in 16 gauge (0.060") sheet steel? This a car body, so it would be hard to back up the hole with anything. Thanks, Doug ____________________

Can't you buy a transformer that is designed for low-voltage exterior lighting? Or: Can't the lamp be rewired to use regular 120 volt bulbs and not need a transformer at all? Doug ___________________
