          I received the 80 lb. Capacity Residential Turf Spreader looks to be built very good. It took me about 5 minutes to put it together, I rotated the handle up and install a couple of bolts that were included. It was very simple to put the bail lever in and hook up the spring. It has 12" pneumatic tires for stability over uneven terrain which makes it easy to use. It comes with a durable poly hopper so it should last many years. I tried it out today and it works awesome. I'm not sure why they call it a residential spreader this thing holds so much that I can do every house on the block.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Stylish

          The versatile Stripmaster Wire Strippers are the standard of the industry. They incorporate a gripper that firmly holds the wire in a center-line position with the stripping hole. The lever action of the stripper offers a mechanical advantage that makes stripping easier. This aids in production applications and reduces operator fatigue. One squeeze strips the wire clean, up to a full 7/8 in. (22 mm). The jaws are automatically held open to allow removal of the wire without damaging its end. This stripper virtually eliminates all nicking, cutting or fraying on non-precision wire.

          I just received the 7 in. Long 10-22 AWG Stripmaster Wire Strippers a few days ago. I tried them out on some wires today and they worked great. They are so easy to use. They will save me time when I'm working on my collection of old cars. The versatile Stripmaster Wire Strippers remove the coating without harming the wire inside. They seem to be a good quality tool. I wish I had these years ago.
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Strong, Sturdy

          We have the solution - utilize vertical space to dry your clothes with the Greenway Collapsible Vertical Drying Rack. Features 6-shelves that may be folded up and out of the way when not in use, such as when hanging larger items or using only half of the rack at a time. When using in the half folded-out position, hang laundry from the bottom-up to ensure the best stability. Includes 2 swing-out hanging bars for hanging longer items on hangers such as collared shirts or dresses. Pivot points on the base feet enable this rack to easily fold up compactly to less than 9 wide for storage. Color: Stainless Steel.

          We received our drying rack today from FedX. My wife & I opened the box & checked to make sure all the parts were there. The instructions only had pictures but we were still able to get it all together. There is a link on the instruction sheet in the upper right hand corner for a YouTube video. We found out when putting it together it was easier to use a plastic mallet to tap the slip joints all together. We like the way that it folds up so its easy to store when not in use. It will be great to dry clothes on. It has a lot of rack space & also a place to hang the hangers.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, the instructions has a website listed to use.

          I received the Miracle Gro Quick Start planting tablets. I was surprised when they came to my house because I did not get any shipping information. I'm excited to try them out when it gets a little warmer outside. It sounds like they should work pretty good. The package the come is resealable so it will keep the fresh & ready to use. I started my tomato plants from seeds a few weeks ago so I will be using them when its time to plant them outside. In the past all the items I have used from Miracle Grow works awesome.
          Pros: Easy to Install, handy resealable bag, Great Instructions

          What are the measurements of the base? By base, I mean the small section that attaches to the electrical box. The product description gives the measurements of the "shade" and calls that the base, but that's not what I'm looking for. I would be installing it in the center of a 6-sided peaked ceiling, so I would like to know the diameter of the base at the side that attaches to the electrical box, the diameter of the base at the lower side (is a little wider in the photo), and the height of the base. Thanks.
