          I'm so excited to get the 3000-PSI 2.3-GPM Honda Gas Pressure Washer. I had to wait a few days for it to warm up outside to try it out. It was boxed up pretty good & arrived with no damage. It came with instructions to put it together. I like that the handle is easy to install & remove. With the large 12" wheels it makes it easy move around the yard. It was nice that a container with engine oil came with it. The 5-in-1 Change-over Nozzle makes it easy to change spray patterns. The 35 foot hose that came with it will not come uncoiled properly so I had to give it a 4 star rating.. Maybe it will be better when the weather warms up.

          I received my Capri super thin open end wrench set today. It looks like a nice set of wrenches. The chrome finish looks awesome. I sure like having large sized marking on them so there easy to see the sizes. The ultra low profile will let me get into tight spots. With the 15 degree angled open end sure willa ke them work better. I hope they hold up when using them. I like the holder that the wrenches can in. There is a limited lifetime warranty on them. I would have gave these a better rating if the warranty was better.

          I was happy to get the 16 ounce bottle of dark thread cutting oil. I'm a DIYer & tried it out right away. I put a drill in my drill press & used some of the cutting oil on my drill bit & it sure made it a lot easier to drill through a steel strap & had laying around. So I thought I would try it out with my tap & die set. I tapped a couple holes in a steel plate with ease. I have always used old engine oil but this dark thread cutting oil works so much better. I will be using this in my shop all the time now.

          When I received the 15 Amp Commercial Grade Duplex Ivory outlet I was surprised to see a cover plate was included with it. It sure looks like the quality of the outlet is very good. I had a outlet in my home that needed to be replaced. So I turned the circuit breaker off & got a couple tools & removed & replaced it. It was pretty simple to replace. I turned the power back on & it works great.

          This quality set includes pliers and 6 bands. Set works by placing a band around the piston, covering the rings and hooking pliers into the band, then squeezing. With the band lightly around the piston, insert piston into cylinder and tap lightly with hammer handle to install. The Fine-tooth ratcheting lock allows you to compress bands in small increments. The great thing is the pliers can be used parallel or perpendicular to the cylinder block.
