  1. just keep the hares at bay
  2. Les, tone generator w/probe & or IR has been my go-to & may be the ticket tone gens are cheap & easy to use for the above average bear
  3. classic abridged installation guide requires a return flange flashing @ chimney & sidewall situations either is the closest depicted in the above doc appears snafu from here but most metallics that require flange flashing do imo
  4. yes Jerry damper control lever for combustion/draft fresh air should have been a damper-less screened vent at or above on the adjacent exterior wall
  5. http://imiweb.org/masonry-detailing-series/ https://www.copper.org/applications/architecture/arch_dhb/arch-details/flashings_copings/wall_flashing.html
  6. correct Marc vaulted masonry ceilings were a worldwide thing...not so much today may have something to do with the labor force
  7. unabashed drift i refer to such as 3b decor...usually gets their attention big box boring then there's the other side, oh so shi-shi chic trash decor i'm a "garbage is my friend" type & am not ashamed to admit it & have made numerous creations that others have wanted enough that i've let them have for the right amount of swap or $s persuasion but this tire-lite borders on hideous now i'm inspired to clean up an old set of mudders & a really damaged chandelier & think 4~8 keyless would be a better choice of luminary or maybe wrapped in rope light...any color preferences?
  8. my 2¢ dimension depends on ahj & code used @ time of construction to determine cabo 1992 1&2 dwelling modeled by the early versions of irc as i understand call them exit doors SECTION R-211-DOORS AND HALLWAYS The required exit door shall be a side-hinged door not less than 3 feet in width and 6 feet 8 inches in height. Other exterior hinged or sliding doors shall not be required to comply with these minimum dimensions. The minimum width of a hallway or exit access shall be not less than 3 feet. dimension was later reduced in Chad's citation to 32" clear width opening i believe Marc is speaking of top/bottom throw bolts or similar...not all are readily accessible & may require special knowledge, (often do not align properly or function as intended...no bearing on width) https://www.google.com/search?q=double+door+throw+bolts&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1
  9. done many as poor-man outward swing safety stud or security hinge there are many similar mfr configurations or retrofits available https://www.google.com/search?q=safety+stud+hinge&client=firefox-b-1&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=f4naSNU-h0b2uM%3A%2CrCafnpADf6DdGM%2C_&usg=__NrEqR5TbSwGfT3k_S19zcah-36w%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjz2PiB_uDbAhXMIDQIHRFEDgQQ9QEIbDAE#imgrc=_
  10. last fall during a severe rain/thunderstorm with lightning i was walking by the furnace closet when the room lit up from a very nearby strike followed by a loud bang from the closet and the odor you'd expect from burnt electronics my tech showed up & showed me that it blew a board and a relay i couldn't recall if the unit was operating at the time of or not, was a question he asked i've also seen when evap spillage occurs from our upright a/c over furnace configurations moisture ruins resistors & the next time it fires there ya go option 3 stuff happens
  11. the last 1 i did was rejected by the seller/owner upon receipt they actually sent a copy of the report back w/redline @ every comment that i noted w/photos & infrared as deficient & wanted the report completely redacted to represent their property in a better light to their specific instructions blatantly blamed me for now having to disclose all of these deficiencies my atty & e&o had copies of all communication & green-lighted before i replied, "talk to your agent & atty" do every job to the best of your ability & let the bodies hit the floor
  12. as long as you don't mix different mAh & type lith-ion, ni-cad, nimh etc. in the charger at the same time it shouldn't be a problem & may take longer for the higher rated mAh depending on your charger
