I started this thread to hopefully follow the "New Toys' thread style, but instead of listing toys, how about we add new things we learned today....


I started my first resi rough in, i've learned alot already...

How to build a "spinner" for romex rolls.

How to mount spools to the studs.

And in general, how to efficently wire a room... Though I'm not very fast (yet)

Oh, and how when its 13 degrees outside, its 7 degrees inside.... All day.

It is a great thing to keep a sense of humor when you are working in harsh weather. Keep it up. You'll do fine.

If it has the white nylon tires, it should have a strap that drags on the ground near the steps to get it. If its missing throw on some #6.

Always, I repeat ALWAYS make an online appointment for the dmv. The dmv opens at 8am. At least I am on vacation, and my daughter and the puppies are waiting patiently to go to the beach.

I learned that trane communicating air handlers do not require a humidistat when installing a humidifier. You have to intercept the internal humidifier wires and power a transformer off them. Then bring 24 volts to the solenoid of the humidifier. The smart thermostat senses humidity.

Never open a thread that is titled "can I du..."
And I learned hanging wallpacks with a extension ladder isn't any fun.

I learned that Phoenix is a great place to play softball in the dead of winter. Shorts and short sleeves at 10 AM :thumbup:

I didn't just learn that today though. We just like to brag about our weather in the winter.

I've been in that static setting on the job and resorted to carrying a screwdriver with me. Hold it in your hand, touch the shaft and use it to ground yourself out. You won't feel a thing.
Yea buddy. Watch the arcs fly. We were in a hotel and the painter covered the hallway carpet in some thick plastic. Made the job miserable.

But today I learned the boss leaves at 2:30 on holidays and the turn pike is wide open at that time !! Happy New Year

ive learned that MOST of the people here have a sense of humor, but it depends on what day, subject, etc., but without the holidays, friday nights are usually best! HAPPY NEW YEAR:thumbup:
