GFI are required in areas with concrete floors. Just in case you are running around your shop barefoot.
Does that mean in a shop with a concrete floor (in-floor heating) every outlet is supposed to be GFCI?

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

What would shipping be to Canada? I would think it should fit in some kind of small flat rate box.

Re: GE 44 tonner

As I recall from when I had HO trains as a kid, HO is 3.5 mm equals one foot. That is .1378 inches. If you are trying to build in the scale where 2.5 inches equals one foot, you would multiply the HO dimensions by 2.5/.1378, which is equal to 18.14 times.

Photo Prints on Laser Printer

I have a Brother color laser printer. We want to print some photos on it. Our local Staples has photo printing paper, but it all says it is for inkjet printers. The clerk told my wife that if we don't use photo paper made for laser printers, that it could damage the printer. I'm skeptical, but certa...

Re: 1" Scale Bobber kit ****ALL SOLD****

I hadn't previously looked at the link with pictures of the kit and instructions, because this is not a scale I am working in. I just did today, and they are impressive.

Re: Quality Pegboard Hooks

That bench looks solid. What store or chain carried it? Probably not available in Canada, but I can look.

Re: How do I make this?

If you want to make them as shown in your last drawing post, this youtube video shows a really easy way to quickly and accurately round those over with a standard endmill.
