QOD for 2/11/2006 New Construction

Hi To all,

sorry for the lack of QOD’s during the last week,the convention just kept me running around like a lunatic.

As so many enjoyed the Commercial set I did a few weeks ago I thought I’d do a week of new construction issues.




Whats the question?

The item in your pic looks to be a metel plate used on wooden studs to guard wires from folks like me who have hammers and nails ect. , but still do not know how to use them.:mrgreen:

OK, now I see the poll.

I can remember installing these plates in the late 80’s

The choice is not available for what is acceptable in Phoenix. So I will pick the lessor.

Whats the excuse for before and after the convention;) :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley: :smiley: :lol: :lol:

Good to have you back

Thanks, believe me it’s good to be home :slight_smile:




A 2 X 4 is actually 1-1/2 by 3-1/2 and the normal auger used for drilling holes for wires is 1/2-3/8 and sometimes 3/4 in the kitchen walls due to range wires.

You went over this during your new construction class. I guess all of us that were there have an advantage.

Only if you were listening.

Was that you snoring at the back Larry ? :mrgreen:



Hi to all,

the correct answer to this is 1 1/4 inches
