    One pic shows the experiments I'm doing with supporting a type 11 radiator (160cm wide, 50cm high, total weight around 35kg) using universal column radiator feet. The other pic shows the detail of the contact surface between the rad and the feet. Aesthetic considerations apart, is there...

    Hello, I need to mount a doorbell transformer (24V) to a junction box in the attic. The transformer has a mounting screw and I know that the high voltage input (120V) is obviously enclosed inside the box and the low voltage is outside. My question is, does it matter whether I mount the...

    I just bought a house and want to mount a post box on the front of the house next to the front door. The house has vinyl siding, so I assumed I would need to drill through the vinyl and into the structure of the house and use an anchor. When I drilled into the vinyl I discovered there is 4...

    Hello! I need to build a gate for the staircase on my back deck to keep my two toddlers from falling, but I've run into a couple issues. We didn't build the deck, and, the previous owners seem to have done a "less-than-perfect" job on it. Here is a photo of the opening. It's a second floor...

    I just moved into a building in NYC that was built in the late 60s and I wanted to mount my 42" plasma. I drilled a few test holes after I used a stud finder and discovered the walls were about 2.5" thick. The drill bit went right through, I now have a peep hole to my bedroom. The other hole...

    I'm about to mount a large TV + soundbar above a fireplace and I'd like to hear some thoughts about my plan before I go ahead with it. I've attached a picture that roughly shows the location of some studs as well as the location of where I plan to attach the mount to the wall. Note that this is...
