          A good product, I have a 2003 Ford pickup in great shape, One of the problems though is its starting to get noisier inside. I thought I’d pick up a few cans of this and give it a shot. I power washed the bottom of the truck best as I could, then blew it off with my leaf blower. The spray can must be well shaken, It applies easily and the cool thing is that the can sprays at any angle. I could cover the bottom of the cab with one can, which from the looks would have been good enough for rust protection, But I wanted to try and cut down some of the road noise, So I applied a total of three cans. I gave it about 20 minutes between each coat (dried to the touch) and let it sit for an hour after Read More

I gave it about 20 minutes between each coat (dried to the touch) and let it sit for an hour after the last coat. Took it for a ride and it actually made a significant difference in the amount of noise inside. I was very pleased with the product.
          • It is an oil based product, so be careful of overspray Must be cleaned off with turpentine, mineral spirits, etc, right away
          • Dries Fast…to the touch about 20 minutes
          • 1 can gave a decent coverage of my ford ranger king cab
          • Any-angle spray nozzle
          • Used 3 cans for total and full coverage for a much quieter ride
          • Resists rust and corrosion

          I couldn’t have found this item at a better time. After 40 years my current homeowner’s insurance company decided I needed a railing on only one end of my front porch, This fit the bill exactly. I was able to assemble, cut, drill and install in less than 2 hours. Once installed I had a solid well-built railing that matched fairly well to what the rest of the porch had, and was approved by my homeowners insurance for safety and at an economical price….. I didn’t want to order 2 when I got this because I wanted to see how it would look and work out, I will be ordering another to match for the other end of the porch.

          This meter is all you need for the DIY'er or shop. It comes built into a sturdy hard casing that should take years of abuse. Large buttons, dial and display that I can read without my glasses, . It measures AC and DC volts, resistance and DC current as well as an audible continuity checker by using the diode tester which can help you check for complete circuits.
          It is also backlit making it extremely easy to read in difficult lighting situations. It comes with an easy to read set of instructions that will give most DIY’ers a good understanding of how to use it and properly interpret the results.

          HOME-FLEX Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing or CSST is great for installation of gas appliances. CSST easily snakes into attic and basements areas, around corners and bends, and through walls. Much easier to work than steel pipe, uses fewer fittings, and weighs a lot less too. Certification through manufacturer is recommended before installing CSST. Color: Yellow.

          This is the first time I’ve used this in place of steel pipe. It’s clean, easy to handle, snakes easily, flexes around corners well and is easy to see after installation. I used it to install a tankless water heater. Just drilled my holes and snaked it thru, There was no cutting, sizing and fitting nipples, Just put a connector on each end and you’re done, you don’t need to buy additional fittings. If you’ve worked with black pipe before you will be amazed at the time savings as well as keeping your hands cleaner and making it easier to work. A great and quality made product.
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, clean hands

          My old die grinder finally kicked the bucket so I got this 16 piece HDX kit. It comes with a wide assortment of grinding stones from fine to course. Also included are the two wrenches for changing bits as well as a case and two different size collets. It’s a nice heavy tool and feels solid.
          The assortment of stones is suitable for anything from rough grinding to almost polishing. As long as you have a decent compressor that will supply 3-4 cfm @ 60-80 psi this tool will perform flawlessly. I also got a mandrel to go with it and with a 3 inch cutting wheel it cuts thru most metals rather quick.
          A nice quality tool at an affordable price that should provide years of service.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, all in one kit
