    Hi My home was built in the 70s. There are three halogen can lights in the dining room. The lights are 50w and they get SUPER hot. I removed the lights and clipped the two wires so I could rewire to a pendant light. The first one had a little bit of power but then it went away. The other two...

    Maybe a dumb question, but I'm doing my own wiring for a custom Sprinter Van build. I'm wondering if I can have a switch in the middle of a circuit of LED lights. So basically, it would be + 12v Battery -> LED lights -> 2 way Switch -> LED lights -> - Battery/Ground. I'd really appreciate any...

    Regular compasses don't seem to work in my car (too much metal?), so I want to replace the mirror with one that has a compass built in (different sensing method). The one I want takes <200mA to feed the compass, but I'm not sure if that means its memory or its display. Could I leave it plugged...

    This is an interesting one. My Carrier gas furnace will run a complete heat cycle (thermostat set to 70, furnace will heat to 71, and then stop as expected). Right after it stops, the red LED on the circut board will turn off, making it appear that there is no power going to the circuit board...
