Fast forward 8 hours. Small radio plugged into another outlet, been working fine for hours. Plug a dremel into the outlet pair, worked about long enough to spin upto speed and poof, neither outlet works.
Both outlets with issues were in separate (but adjoining) rooms.
Are we lucky enough that this is something simple like replacing the outlets in question? Loose connections?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
