          PowerNail makes a fine product. This hammer is well made cast aluminum, But not overdone, It has good balance, Doesn't require you too hit it too hard and the action when you hammer lets you get a nice rhythm going.It comes with a box of cleated nails that are well packed so they don't get broken up during shipment. Comes with 1/2 inch air fitting installed and box of 1000 nails so you can really take it out of the box and use it. I think its a reasonable price considering your getting a lot for your money, Cheaper than the most expensive, yet cost enough so you feel confident in it.

The Included mallet is as nicely balanced as a flooring mallet can be.. feels good in the hand,and has a lot of holes countersunk in it to keep your palm from sweating. The tool itself is almost 3 pounds lighter than the one its replacing so for me it feels much easier to move around, Drives nails in just as it should. I Used the box of 1000 nails that came with it and after adjustments and oiling(oil included) I fired them all without a single error. Well worth the money and well made you'll be glad you bought it Read Less
          Pros: All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy, Well Made

          Paracord is ideal for camping, hiking and other outdoor activities. You can braid a survival bracelet from paracord and unravel it when cordage is needed. It has a great combination of strength and durability for a lightweight rope. Some of the dozens of practical uses for paracord include: making a tarp ridge line, securing equipment to a backpack or a vehicle, making a shelter, replacing shoelaces, making a clothesline, hanging food while camping, marking a trail, and making an emergency tourniquet. Always keep at least 50 ft. of paracord on hand. Color: Grays.

          My wife loves this item, I mounted it in my R/V over the stove and filling pots has never been easier. You can see from the nozzle (pics below) it is large and fills pots fast and easy. It was a little more difficult installing it in an RV because its on a moving wall and the walls aren't as thick as in a house all you need is a 90 degree elbow and pex pipe.I've put these in at homes in the past and its usually pretty easy as any damage you have to create is usually hidden behind the stove only requiring some drywall and joint compound. Its well made has a beautiful finish and should last long time.

          A nice well made towel rack They come in 9, 18 or 30 inch sizes and are a good do it your self update/project for your bathroom or kitchen, The only problem with these is you must have a good solid anchor or surface to attach it to. The wall piece works best when solidly secured to the location. Mine came with the screw in anchors which worked well for me in drywall. As long as the spring plate is securely connected to the wall you wont have any problems.Installation is quick and takes less than half an hour
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish
