          Having owned two other laser measuring devices and not being comfortable using them due to inaccurate readings, I am pleased to say that this one from the manufacturer of Bosch products is not only continuously accurate to with 1/8”, it constantly reads the same measurement of the same distance without error. It is advertised as small and simple. It is small, yes and simple to use, yes but it is anything but simple. It is stylish and easy to use, having only one button to press.

No more bulky wire connectors. A thumb screw either side if the unit secures the the two pieces together which are protected from the weather with black plastic covers. Setting it up also was very easy. With the LUX dial set at the + (which allows you to set it up in the daytime) and the timer and sensitivity set at the minus, This allows you to see if it works as it should. I turned the LUX up a little so it would not activate in the daylight hours and went back to it after dark and set the sensitivity and the timer to suite. The amount of light it gives off is quite amazing considering it is a small unit and they are LED's rather than bulbs. Not only did it light up my driveway but also the garden, giving a clear wide view. I also love the way the part which holds the LUX, timer and sensitivity adjustable s, turns so that the dials are at the back and not seen and not open to the weather. From all the lights I have tried over the years, this one by bar is the best.

          This is one of the best air tools I've ever used for shooting in nails. It took me about ten minutes to figure that 80lb PSI was good for me and the depth adjustment as well, but once it was set, it was bang on every time. There were no problems at all. The tool magazine has quite a large storage and so reloading is not as often. The rubber grip is a good feature, and it’s well-balanced. I’ve used about 350 3-1/2” nails, and so far and I have yet to experience any problems with misfiring or jamming..... My little compressor handles the tool well. I have used the nail gun for siding but for framing, it certainly comes into its own field of excellence.

          I fitted this pump to our air conditioner and it works very well taking the water collected and pumping it into the floor drain. Easily fitted using the supplied clear tubing after mounting the unit along side the air conditioner. Simply mount the unit, connect the tubing, plug it in and its ready to go. Very quite and effective pump. Been working for a week now and it is still very quiet.

          I tried each product and was surprised at how much better each one is than my regular product that I usually buy. The stainless steel cleaner for e.g. brought my oldish gas cooker up to almost new looking and a much better finish since it was new. All in all, a really good and well worth buying cleaning kit. Oh and the finish lasts longer without having to use it again so soon like my other cleaner.

          Okay....I figured it would require a junction box that was recessed into the ceiling in order for it to be hard wired ,but how does the light connect to the junction box. For example, does the light come apart so the base of it can be fixed to the junction box?
