  GFCI Wont Reset
Posted by: David Stone - 5 hours ago - Forum: Home Improvement - Replies (1)

I have a radon reduction system with a GFCI on the circuit before the fan.  The GFCI is tripped and wont reset.   When I press in the reset button and let it go, I see a small greenish spark (tiny) in one of the receptacles.  All of the connections seems good.  Should i try to replace the GFCI?  I don't know whether there is a problem at the fan unit.  Or just call an electrician.

Does anyone know if he's still in business? His website is still up but seems to be broke. I need some faceplates.

  Secret Santa 2017
Posted by: Santa's_Elves - 10 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking Hand Tools - Replies (3)

Greetings all!

You all have been waiting, anxiously twiddling your thumbs in anticipation of the announcement of the vaulted "Secret Santa 2017". Well, the time is nigh, so grab your magnifying glass, pop on your Sherlock Holmes hat and start honing your investigative skills to find "the" gift.

Here's how it works:

To participate,  send a PM to Santa's Elves indicating that you wish to participate including your e-mail address. Posting to this thread does not count, only a PM with an e-mail works. Once your PM is received, for which you will get a receipt, a link to the form to fill out will be forwarded. This is to protect the form's link from web crawlers and possibly getting spambots filling in the entries. All communication after the initial PM will be via e-mail. So watch your spam lists after you send your PM.

Santa's elf is going to be out of town the first half of October and will have no innerweb access, we are going to stretch out the signup window a bit. Entries will be accepted from today, September 24th through Wednesday, October 28th. Details of your recipient will be sent by November 5th. After the closing date of October 30th, entries will still be accepted for the late arrivals until November 15th. Be forewarned however, no guarantee is made that we will be able to match you up with someone, in which case you'll have to wait until next year. 

Here are the rules:

  • If you sign up, please follow through on your commitment.
  • If you are going to be late with your gift, let me know and we can notify your recipient.
  • If you need to back out completely, let me know as soon as possible so we can find another Santa for your recipient.
  • If possible, please use a tracking number when mailing. It might come in handy if someone doesn't receive their gift.
  • If you have posted less than 10 messages on Woodnet, send me a PM in addition to filling out the form you are sent.

Gift guidelines and advice:
  • Please send a real gift, not a gift card or certificate.
  • Read their old posts to get an idea of what they like to do and what they might need or want.
  • See if they participate on other forums.
  • Take a look at wish lists on various tool websites.
  • If you have a member who does not post a lot and are having a tough time with ideas or you find that your person has everything, maybe go outside the box. There are universal gifts that every woodworker can use.
  • If you are one of those folks who doesn't post a lot or have the entire Lee Valley catalog in your shop, try leaving some bread crumbs to help your Santa out.

Most of all, have fun! Any issues, let me know.

And thanks to Arlin for volunteering to be the silent Elf.

Happy sleuthing!

  Stanley #72 in need of help
Posted by: JimReed@Tallahassee - Yesterday, 02:01 PM - Forum: Woodworking Hand Tools - Replies (3)

The mailman brought me another basket case this week. It is a #72 with toasty wood and some serious user mods.





As you can see, the knob is missing and the tote is pretty chewed up. But the real problems are below. Previous owner did a real number on the frontpiece and blade.







Here is a view from the topside.




So it is a cosmetic mess and needs some real help. My current plan is to derust the body and paint it. I think I can regrind and save some of the blade. I am sure there is replacement wood somewhere around here. Once done, I guess this blemished plane will become my permanent user. The mode seem to be mostly cosmetic. Stay tuned for more.

  installing a deadbolt in a steel door?
Posted by: mound - Yesterday, 11:55 AM - Forum: Home Improvement - Replies (3)

I'm installing new knobs on an existing steel door, so all the holes are already there. On the edge of the door (which is fully wrapped with steel), there is already a circular hole cut, but how can I cut this material cleanly to fit the new rectangular plate for the deadbolt?
I attached a picture and you can see where I scribed a thin line representing the rectangular (rounded edges) plate.

Thanks for any tips!
