          The Doohickey FishKey Key Tool is a fish-shaped tool that attaches to your key ring using a stainless steel S-Biner, so it's always at hand when you need it. This product's clever design incorporates a flat-head screwdriver, a serrated edge (great for cutting line and opening lure packages) and, finally, of course, a bottle opener (because you always want a bottle opener). Made of durable stainless steel, the Doohickey FishKey Key Tool is travel and airport friendly. Color: Silver metallic. Gender: unisex. Age Group: adult.

          This is a neat little tool that looks like a cute little fish but is a bottle opener, a flathead screwdriver, and has serrations to cut line. Also stainless steel for corrosion resistance. Basically this is a nice little extra thing to have in your tacklebox or toolbox or glove box. Because it has serrations I wouldn't keep it in my pocket, however it will make a nice addition to any fishing trip.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Stylish

          Remember when you could slice through cement. The WEN 7-1/4 in. 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 in. arbor (15.88 mm) allows for compatibility with the majority of 7-1/4 in. 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). Its time to get reliable and powerful performance with a WEN Saw Blade. Remember when you had a blade that lasted. Remember WEN.

          I've cut a lot of fiber cement board for showers and baths and floors and usually use a utility knife for the 1/4" board and a grinder with a diamond blade for the 1/2" board. Neither is fun. I've seen various other methods but recently a guy I worked with used a similar blade on his circular saw to cut fiber cement board for a countertop. I was intrigued so I chose this blade. It works great in the sense that it cuts quickly and cleanly, the circular saw especially with a guide leaves a straight edge, and it takes less time. Yes, without a dust collection system it does produce dust, but honestly I would rather use a method such as this one that cuts quickly so I am producing dust for a lot Read More
          I've cut a lot of fiber cement board for showers and baths and floors and usually use a utility knife for the 1/4" board and a grinder with a diamond blade for the 1/2" board.

I was intrigued so I chose this blade. It works great in the sense that it cuts quickly and cleanly, the circular saw especially with a guide leaves a straight edge, and it takes less time. Yes, without a dust collection system it does produce dust, but honestly I would rather use a method such as this one that cuts quickly so I am producing dust for a lot less amount of time. One drawback may be that this blade is best used for long, straight cuts and not small plunge cuts or complicated profiles, but honestly the long straight cuts are the vast majority of standard construction.
          Highly recommended. Get one even if you have just one project you need it for. It's great that you don't need a special tool if you already have a circular saw that takes a 7-1/4" blade. Read Less

          The Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion HIGH OUTPUT Starter Kit with the XC8.0Ah battery and charger is a great starter kit whether you are building your own set of Milwaukee M18 cordless tools, or adding an additional battery to an existing set or single kit. The 8.0Ah battery is a good size and offers plenty of power, 50% as advertised over the 5.0ah as well as running 50% cooler and giving 60% longer run time. Although I have no measuring equipment to verify this, just using it I believe it.

Although I have no measuring equipment to verify this, just using it I believe it. The 8.0 was great to use in a recent project I had for work, I was cutting decorative beams out of a large craftsman home to replace because they were rotted, and used my Milwaukee M18 Sawzall. The first day I used a 4.0Ah battery and although it did a good job it predictable needed a swap and to be charged. However the second and third day I used the XC8.0 and from a full charge it lasted both days with a charge leftover, and felt more powerful to use while I used it.
          Eventually I'll phase out all my smaller batteries from the larger cordless tools. I plan on replacing them with the XC8.0 because of how well it performs. Consider this kit if you need an M18 battery for personal or professional use. Read Less

          If you need an all-in-one kit for a medium sized cordless grinder, look no further. This Milwaukee M18 grinder is versatile in that it can be used with 4-1/2 up to 6" blades and attachments. It comes with a XC 6.0Ah battery, rapid charger, toolless guard and a wrench to tighten and loosen the main nut. It offers plenty of power with the XC6.0 and will accept smaller and larger M18 batteries as well, if you have them or desire them. It all comes in a nice soft zippered canvas bag for storage. I used to like the hard cases but these bags care now my favorite.

I used to like the hard cases but these bags care now my favorite.
          Besides being portable and versatile in size, another feature I love is the Rapid Stop system that stops the grinder from spinning in under three seconds after the switch is released. Not only does that save time from holding the grinder, waiting for it to stop spinning, it helps prevent an accident if someone happened to set it down while it was still spinning.
          I added a dollar bill in the picture for size reference. I wanted to do so because this is a slightly bigger grinder than the other 4-1/2" grinders because it is designed for up to 6" accessories. While that is versatile it may require some to use two hands when using the grinder, something that should be done anyway for safety. But worth mentioning.
          Whether you need a portable grinder for home use or need to use one professionally in the building trades, this grinder is for you. Read Less

          The DEWALT 4.5 in. Light Duty Bench Vise is ideal for home, shop and contractor use. Built for durability and dependability, this vise is constructed from 30,000 psi cast iron. The replaceable micro-grooved steel jaws have a strong grip and will prevent objects from moving around once you clamp them in place. An integrated anvil work surface on the back of the vise is perfect for hammering and shaping metal pieces. The 120° swivel base allows this vise to be positioned so work pieces can be clamped with ease. The machine steel main screw with rolled threads is wear-resistance which provides smooth operation. Whether you are working with wood or metal at home or in the shop, the DEWALT 4.5 in. Light Duty Bench Vise provides the maximum clamping and holding power needed to get the job done with confidence.

          This is a nice 4.5" vise in a classic design and shape that is perfect for light duty home use. Great for any user, even a first timer. The jaws open and close smoothly, the base rotates and locks well, and it even has all the standard features such as removable jaws, a small anvil surface, and also the clamp below the jaw, which I'm not sure what it is called but I've always used it to hold pipe with. Four mounting holes are there to bolt it to any work surface. Pick a study one because this little vise can hold on tightly.
