          Gets the job done! I have a HE washing machine and I am diligent in wiping out the rubber ring and leaving the door ajar - this product does the rest. Highly recommend to use to keep your expensive HE washing machine in tip top working condition. It is also septic system safe!

          The simple lines of the 4 in. Bin Pull from Liberty evoke a nostalgic retro vibe. Enhancing your cabinetry with this classically styled pull will create just the right mood in your bathroom or kitchen spaces. Furthermore, the upgrade of your cabinetry or furniture is a cinch with the included installation hardware.

          The MM482U Wood and Metal Flush Cut Blade is the same cutting accessory as the current MM482, but with the new U2 interface. It cuts wood and metal materials, including soft and hard woods, plastic, drywall, copper, nails, screws and other metals. The MM482U has the first truly universal oscillating accessory interface in the market so no adapter needed allowing for easy fit with all competitive tools.

          I learned the expensive way to not buy 'off brand' blades for my Dremel tool. The non-Dremel branded blades not only did not cut as well but lasted half as long before they were dull. This Dremel blade cuts through metal like butter and lasts a very long time before it is dull. Highly recommend.

          How random is the pattern of the boards? I installed Traffic Master Lakeshore Pecan (looks great) but they only had about eight different patterns so you had to make sure to open all the boxes and sort by pattern before you could lay out your floor otherwise you might have the same pattern next to each other.
