Re: electrical outlets/photos....

I would then double the number of electrical outlets AND put them above
desk height.
First, I put a couple of photos on the Weavetech site to try it out, it
worked !
I had the same problem with desks and outlets, so I bought a couple ( more
than a couple ! ) of power strips that have a circuit breaker on the end and
a separate "on" switch. I screwed these to the wall or to the cabinet at
desk height, now I can switch on a tool or light with several outlets
available and also have another breaker for protection.
Cost: about $ 5 to $8 a power strip. For a computer, one should use a power
strip that also has a surge protection built in, these are pricey little
puppies but worth the peace of mind; whether they'd actually protect in an
electrical storm is open to debate.....We don't get electrical storms here
in central CA very often, but I unplug the computer from the wall when a
rare one does come down the valley.

Happy Shuttling ! - Bill Koepp in Central California
