          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.

Versatile, practical design Better than Down's diamond-box construction gives you warmth, comfort and loft of a blanket while preventing the down-like tufts of microfiber inside from shifting.

          The down alternative black & gray reversible full/queen comforter set came today. I was glad to see that it was packaged in a plastic bag to keep it safe. With the winter weather it came at the right time. It is lightweight & feels like it will help staying warm. It looks like the stitching is really good. It covers our queen sized bed pretty good. Its a little smaller than the one we were using.
          Pros: Comfortable, Functional, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Well Made
          Cons: i wish it was a little bigger for our queen bed

          I received Beast Professional Series 16 Gallon, 6.5 HP Wet/Dry Vacuum. It was packaged very good so there was no damage. I opened the box & installed the casters. I'm glad the had a screw to hold each caster on. All the casters swivel 360 degrees. Its nice that the cord is long, it makes its easy to use in the garage. The switch is on top & easy to see. The shop vac has places to store all the accessories so they don't get lost. I was surprised on how much the noise diffuser cut down on the noise. It is powerful with the 6.5 hp motor. I will get many years of use from it. It even has a 5 year warranty.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, big switch to turn it on & off
