Requirement is within 12" of every box and every 4 1/2'. NEC 334.30- I have no idea why you put a single circuit breaker in the shed, so I'm worried about what is feeding this.Conclusion: Stick to the carpentry, let someone else do the electrical work.

    DOUBLE HOP BEER (dry hopping)

    More yeast to process the extra sugar you've added?The typical reason for secondary fermentation is to allow for clarify the beer AFTER all fermentation has slowed significantly. You've added more sugar (and more yeast) and restarted active fermentation, thus cancelling out those benefits. Plus, extra corn sugar will only serve to boost alcohol content at the detriment of body.If you've transferred to secondary in less than two weeks, the yeast in the beer will do just fine and don't need more help from new yeast.

  • Minimalist IWB Holster

    I must attempt to dissuade anyone from attempting to carry a holster that doesn't have adequate trigger protection; that includes cheap, floppy holsters. If you can spend $500 for a gun, then you should be able to afford a $50 holster.The gun pictured looks like a Para 1911 - why is it not cocked and locked as a 1911 should be when carried?Also, I think the tags "police" and "military" are inappropriate as you'd never see a professional carry in such a dangerous manner.

  • Hidden Firearms Storage - Looks like an old table!

    I'm not really fond of Instructables that are "design only" where the author tells others to build something they haven't actually built.Especially when it comes to guns.

    Building a Dishwasher from Scratch

    So it does leak? In my experience nothing seals up holes in HDPE short of welding it. Silicone and epoxy doesn't stick to the material of those tubs.

  • Greywater Recycling Nutrient Film Hydroponic System

    So, being a mock up and seeing that the end caps are just Solo red cup and not PVC glued end caps with solid fitting, this really can't be used for anything except "show and tell", right?

    BAT NEST

    Bats routinely nest in attics - in other words hot spaces. So, having a southeastern exposure is ideal. It warms up quickly in the morning then doesn't get too hot during the day.In addition, drill a series of small holes just beneath the top to allow some ventilation.
