I Came... I Sawed.... I Fixed - by Linda

Linda - our New England immigrant - is our resident Ms Fix-It.

Her column is updated every weekday or thereabouts, so check back often for new secrets and tips.


Three To Two NO-NO

If we are stuck with a building that has two-prong receptacles, then how do we plug in modern appliances and tools that have a three-prong plug?

The most common way is to get an adapter that allows for three to two.

Things will work but they still aren't grounded and that's not a good thing.

Short of rewiring the building, the situation can be made better by replacing an ungrounded receptacle with a ground fault receptacle.

These receptacles provide added protection for people but they are not foolproof.


Do you have Home Repair ideas or secrets to share or have a question?

You can Write to Linda!.

Include your first initial and last name and put the words HOME REPAIR in the subject.

I'll try to use your contribution in a future column.

(Please note that these columns are written several weeks in advance so publishing it will be delayed accordingly.)


Linda, Red and Pup

Hope this helps tame some of your day-to-day little Home Repair beasties.

Linda
