Flipping the Switch

I finished yet another electrical project the other day, and I did it all by my lonesome, though JH and his magic bag of tools was with me the entire time in spirit. We’ve had this problem with flickering lights in our kitchen, and JH (of course) told me that it was due to a faulty resistor or capacitor in the switch. Feeling empowered, I went to Home Depot and got a new switch, then set about replacing it. I couldn’t find an exact match, and instead went with a rotary dimmer versus a linear one, but that’s a minor point.

The good news is, I pulled it off. Best of all, there was a story involved, as well, but that’s something for my other blog.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to NRL for the pic.
