    Hi, I have an Instant Pot that came with a very short power cable (maybe 2 feet at best). The original cable specs are SJT, 105 C deg, 3 x 18 AWG, 300V VW-1. I would prefer a slightly longer power cable for better placement while in use. I have a spare PC cable (from a tower-style PC). It's...

    Well, we are finally getting an emergency 7500W portable genny for power outages. My plan is to keep it in a small shed I'll build for it in the far corner of our back yard, to minimize the noise when I need to pull it out and run it. It will need a run of 100' of cable I'll lay out each time I...

    So we have a little problem here where the power -lights and everything- dims all at once, only in one room, whenever the cable box in this room is disconnected from the cable. I noted this a few years ago, when we were moving a new desk in and unscrewed the coaxial cable from the wall. The...

    How do I do an in-wall cable routing job for a wall-mounted TV if there are horizontal studs in the route I want to take? I bought a Legrand CMK70 kit, which comes with a circular saw to cut two holes and an AC power kit to go between the top and bottom. I thought it would be easy using this...
