          The Oatey #30847 is an all-purpose cement that is designed for PVC, CPVC, and ABS materials. Along with the use of an appropriate primer, this all-purpose cement creates a strong bond, leak proof connection on these specific materials. It comes in a 32-fluid ounce can with screw top that contain a large brush dauber for its application. It should be noted that the large brush dauber may not fit the PVC, CPVC, and ABS connectors as nicely like the slimmer size brush daubers in smaller cans of the product when applying the product. Due to local plumbing codes in effect, you should check with your town or county plumbing inspector to see if this all-purpose cement is acceptable for plumbing use Read More

          The Ideal Wing-Nut Wire Connector provides an easy, secure grip when connecting a wide range of wires. The specially designed contoured wings make for extra torque and quick work on any electrical job. The wide range, live-action spring is flexible enough to handle small combinations with ease but then expands to accept large combinations when you need it. It can also be reused on same size or larger combinations for quick and easy circuit changes and additions.
