          Okay, this is a great tool but it is what I consider an "in between" tool that works great for what it is designed for but is not exactly what you might think it is for. Maybe people hear "bolt cutters" and think it is synonymous with the large two-handed tool designed to cut locks. This isn't it. This is a one-handed tool that is much like a larger set of flush-cutting pliers and is a much stronger version of it. Designed to cut similar materials including small cable, wire, nails, and similar materials. Pretty much if you think you can cut it with one hand manually, that is the limitation you have. The handles are nice, the head cuts evenly and cleanly, and it looks great and is easy to Read More

The handles are nice, the head cuts evenly and cleanly, and it looks great and is easy to use. The only issue I have with it, which isn't a design or manufacturing issue, its more of a practical use issue in the fact that, unless you are making a cut or two or you don't have anything else to cut with, the things this is designed to cut can either be used by another common tool (i.e. side cutting pliers) or on the upper-end to just go ahead and use a power tool. That's not to say that this isn't a capable tool, I'm not saying that at all and am quite impressed with it, however if I have to make more than a couple cuts I'm probably going to reach for something else, but only because I have a truck full of power tools.

          Finding moisture is the first step in early mold prevention. High levels of moisture that go untreated are the main cause for harmful mold growth in the home. With the MM7 pin-type moisture meter, find the exact moisture content of your wood, drywall or other building materials. This will help you know if you need to dry the existing materials or replace with brand new ones. Quickly determine what level of remediation is needed to keep your family safe.

          Coax Stripmaster for RG-59 coax cables. Each tool includes the standard Stripmaster tool frame and knife type blades for 2-step stripping of RG-59 coaxial cables. The Stripmaster tool allows the user to strip one level at a time and the user can determine the proper strip length between levels.

          TKO Hole Cutters offer the most efficient and clean cutter replacement for traditional knockouts, by making smooth holes in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. Specifically designed to cut sheet metal, TKO cutters will even cut stainless steel with fine grained, carbide tips. The innovative design includes the exclusive SmoothStart replaceable pilot drill, which guides the cutter to the surface, avoiding cutter damage and providing smoother holes.

          I am impressed. This entire hole saw kit so well-designed and a lot of thought and engineering went into it. Obviously this is designed for sheet metal, for anyone such as electricians who need precise holes cut in a reasonable amount of time. From 7/8 to 2-1/2in it offers a variety of hole sizes. The carbide tipped saws aren't even in the same league as the old bi-metal ones that stainless steel pretty much laughs at. The spring ejector and overdrill flange are further proof of the design that went into this set. The case is decent quality.
          Pros: Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy

          The Milwaukee 25 ft. W Blade Tape Measures have the longest, straightest standout in the industry giving users up to 14 ft. of standout for extended reach and efficiency on the jobsite. The straight standout is highly usable and makes it easier to measure long distances alone. The tape measures are wear and impact-resistant with nylon bond blade protection and an additional anti-tear coating on the first 6 of the blade, reducing tape tear. Built to withstand the jobsite, the measuring tapes are constructed with a 5-point reinforced frame for impact resistance.

          I'm always looking for a new good tape measure and am highly impressed by this Milwaukee 25ft tape measure. I is a decent size, fits well in my hand and pulls out and retracts smoothly and easily. It is easy to read (standard markings) and the blade is quite wide. It clips easily on my back pocket with the wire-type clip which I never used to care for but now I really like compared to the stamped metal type. It has an open section underneath to slow down or stop it from retracting with your index finger, which is nicer than using the lock. The best feature however is the standout.

          Remember when you could slice through cement? The WEN 7-1/4-Inch Professional Fiber Cement Saw Blade provides reliable and accurate performance, maintaining its straight shape and sharp edges for longer than the competition. The polycrystalline diamond-tipped circular saw blade slices through fiber cement and laminate flooring with ease. The 5/8-inch arbor (15.88 mm) allows for compatibility with the majority of 7-1/4-inch circular saws, jobsite saws, and track saws on the market. Heat expansion slots help the blade expand and contract as needed to provide maximum accuracy across a wide range of cutting conditions. Our unique PCD formula fights off potential wear and tear caused by highly abrasive fiber cement board, making your blade last. This lightweight, ultra-thin blade provides maximum efficiency during operation, leaving behind a kerf a mere 1/15 of an inch wide (1.8 mm). It's time to get reliable and powerful performance with a WEN Saw Blade. Remember when you had a blade that lasted? Remember WEN.
