Today I almost got a 4 ft. light fixture wired and hung over the upstairs kitchen sink.
You ever do work on the ceiling over a sink? it is a PITA and hard on my back. The rotary variable switch is done and when I repowered the circuit there was no blinding flash. Plan B will be for the win.

LOL! Sorry this was just a little EV fabrication job I did for somebody. Guy wanted the whole thing built but we couldn’t come to a reasonable number so I said I’ll mount the motor for 300 or something. 15 minutes in 3D and $35 for the pieces, and a couple hours in the shop and done.

I have 3 projects in planning.

Well I finally finished kitchen the over sink light installation up stairs and just before I turned the breaker switch back on I tried the rotary dimmer switch and the fricken light came on? WTF!!! I have been working with a live 110V line! :eek:
It did seem odd when I opened the switch and receptacle box, that there were two services coming in and I assumed both lines were fed from the same breaker. Guess not. Never got shocked except seeing the light come on when it shouldn't.
This 4 ft. light fixture turned up all the way is brighter than high noon.
Scratch one Honey Do.

"Looking in the mirror LOL"

Nah, upper kitchen window.
I have a analog multimeter most of fifty years old. Could have used it didn't.
Since having a Pacemaker and just common sense, I only go into any electrical circuit with one hand to any one pole. If and when we sell this place, I will get a contract with full liability on the buyer.
That said, this house was not built to any code regulations. Kinda fits with my underlying libertarianism.
That's not how I vote though. I take risks for a reason.

This global warming thing is curiouser and curiouser. Thunder, lightning, and rain storm as early February 8th?
Long term matters not to me. I won't be here. But still to witness the change since I was young.
Time to finish another project maybe,
