sorry but the last person I look to for hands on electrical work is an EE. They may understand theory but they are usually the least knowledgeable about how to put that into practice, especially in the situations addressed in a forum such as this.
I think the chemical engineer would be more helpful around the house whipping of some serious cleaners for some unusual situation.
anyway, welcome and feel free to ask away. I bet we can even get you through an electrical situation if you are just a bit on the handy side.
btw; the comments about the EE is meant in the most loving way. I am a pro electrician and have dealt with some of the dumbest EE's in the world. That has tended to leave a bad impression on me.
