          I am not a mechanic, professional or otherwise, I am a general contractor who sometimes uses mechanic's tools that overlap into my industry as well as occasionally at home on vehicles and small equipment. This Husky 270-piece set has pretty much everything I could ever want or need in a mechanic's tool set, for now at least. It comes in metric and SAE, with combination wrenches, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2" 72-tooth ratchets with extensions, deep and shallow sockets, spark plug sockets, a variety of other heads, and of course the screwdriver with all the bits and ends as well as more allen wrenches than I practically know what to do with.

I'm sure I didn't list everything. Oh yeah, and it all comes in a convenient case. Like always, the fit and finish of these is high quality, and the ease of use is flawless.
          This isn't my first set of Husky mechanic's tools, but over the years I have come to trust their quality and design enough to use at work, sometimes in demanding conditions. Obviously I'm not wrenching all day, every day, but when I do I know I can trust the quality of the Husky tools I do have. Highly recommended. Read Less

          I've really been interested in the Kreg Pocket Hole system for a while now but never pulled the trigger on buying a set. I'm not familiar with their entire product lineup but this seems to be their most basic introductory set and requires a couple additional items to get started that you may or may not already have, such as the screws and a clamp. I've gotten by so far in my life using pilot holes drilled on a steep angle, toenailing with finish nails, and a number of other "old school" tricks to get the job done. Not anymore. This fantastic idea makes it easy to make production-grade pilot holes every time on your project.

This fantastic idea makes it easy to make production-grade pilot holes every time on your project.
          However, this introductory set is small and seems to be better suited for either the extreme occasional user or an advanced user who needs several sizes of pocket hole jigs. If you fit into either of those categories, this may be perfect for you. Overall the quality seems high, and a lot of thought and design went into the engineering. Years of on-the-job use in shops as well as onsite in construction sites prove the worthiness of the Kreg system. Read Less

          This hardhat really blows my old one out of the water. I need a hardhat for work and the one I had before wasn't very comfortable and not very adjustable either. This Klein version is a night and day difference, literally so with the included flashlight. First and foremost, this hardhat feels extremely comfortable and is easy to wear, adjust to a good height to fit my head, and clicks in place nicely. The shell is nice and clean white but slightly "matte" so it doesn't shine unnecessarily. It has built-in vents that can be opened for heat and closed for, I assume, cold weather which is something I don't have in my area but something many people have to contend with.

The flashlight is small and lightweight, nice and bright LED with a high and low setting, and can be put on the front or back or taken off completely. Very useful, even if just for those late nights when working when the sun has gone down, or you can take the flashlight off and use it in a pinch in your hand. It takes 3x AAA batteries.
          Do yourself a favor. If you are required to wear a hardhat, wear something that is comfortable and functional. This Klein hard hat is both. Read Less

          Wow I'm quite impressed with this machete! I've had several cheaper machetes and they do not compare to this one. It came sharp enough for general purposes, feels good in my hand and is neither too long or weighty or too small and light, a common issue with machetes. I love the full tang and the solid feel it gives me. The sheath is decent but holds it securely. I have a backyard full of brush and took this outside and went to town on a variety of things. It sliced through succulents like they weren't even there, through small branches and vines and shoots with ease, and even chopped thicker dead branches with just a few swings.

It sliced through succulents like they weren't even there, through small branches and vines and shoots with ease, and even chopped thicker dead branches with just a few swings. Obviously a machete is a tool and for specific purposes, it won't and shouldn't take the place of an axe for chopping wood or a saw for sawing through branches or trunks, but hacking away thin stuff this machete works great. I don't know what types of steel is used but it didn't deform after chopping dead dry branches.
          Like any bladed weapon or tool, use extreme caution when using this product. Read Less

          As a kid I loved Star Wars and was fascinated by the walkers. This AT-AT is pretty big, about 8 feet tall and takes a minute or two to inflate. Mine came twisted and needed some help inflating. It looks really detailed, almost nothing to discern the holiday spirit except that is has Christmas lights along the top. Pretty neat overall. It is somewhat top heavy and I think I'll put it on my lawn with stakes so it doesn't topple over.

          Absolutely, in fact it is preferred because of its lower PSI rating. Mortar with a higher Portland Cement content can damage soft older bricks over time. I use this mortar frequently to point brick and highly recommend it.
