Default Questions of the week of 08/03/18

Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!



Questions of the week:


Introduction and requirements:

A member of the Award Committee will post a question, at a random day/time.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member's winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winnings will be limited to no more than 3 times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers
or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

So please refrain from participating if you have already won in the maximum for the Year.

First correct answer (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of "Now that you've had a Home Inspection Books" shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Yeah ok Jeff and Dave. But you got them in spite of my shortcomings. I think the guys who learn the most are the guys who ask the questions.

So then Jeffrey, if I asked you to get me a 1st fix saw would you bring me a:

a. Hacksaw
b. Coping saw
c. Handsaw
d. Miter saw

Answer without using Google.
Get it right and I'll send some fresh roasted coffee beans.
Your word is good enough.

See, you would have got it but "prolly" doesn't count.

Well! They may have degrees, but that is not an indicator of common sense or right thinking...M. Larson circa 9-27-2018.
