The Pop-Up Floor Box Receptacle may be used to satisfy the appropriate code requirements for residential and commercial applications; it also offers protection from ingress of water spray when closed and meets or exceeds scrub water test for safety.

          I mounted the Pop-Up Floor Box Receptacle in the top of my desk. While it is extremely handy for floor mounting where you can't get into the walls or if you need a receptacle in the middle of the floor. Installation is easy enough for any DIYer, They are prewired and only require attachment of the hot and neutral wire. They are much easier to use than the old ones that had the screw on brass cover.
          The best part about this item is that no one can steal my phone charger anymore. I can come home, Pop up the cover and plug my phone in and charge it.

          This is a standard item now in my line of stock items we keep on hand at the shop. They are well made with a beautiful finish and look like they'll stand up to years of abuse. Comes complete with different size screws so you can use them on cabinets or drawer fronts. And sold at a very reasonable price, So far I've used them in a kitchen, to dress up the cabinets after repainting them.On a dresser, in a bathroom, These are great for DIY refinishing projects.

          I don't know if they changed it, But mine had no cling plastic cover, Just wrapped in a protective plastic bag (see pic. below) so that wasn't a problem. Well made and stamped from 302 stainless steel will certainly last forever. Can be cleaned with windex or mild soap and water or even use a metal polish if you want it extra shiny. Sometimes I use these and just drill a hole in the center if I want a nice mount for a toggle switch. Even comes with longer screws to make your life easier.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright

          If your a whittler,woodcarver,hobbyist, etc, this thumb guard will come in handy to you.. Helps for pushing knife or chisel along without making your thumb hurt like crazy, also keeps your thumb from slipping off blade and protects your thumb from being cut as well. Fits snugly and tightly to thumb and can be used on any finger it will fit on. A very inexpensive price for a lot of extra help and protection.

          It can be done either way, If you tile the whole wall you can then hang an independent mirror in a frame. Or you can attach a mirror directly to the wall and tile up to and around it.

          The QEP Black Widow Diamond Blade is a premier blade for very fast, chip-and wobble-free cutting of porcelain, marble, granite and ceramic tile. The unique diamond-shaped micro segmented laser cutouts around the perimeter keep the blade cooler for superior performance and a longer life. In fact, independent testing has shown that the total average cut speed for the Black Widow blade is 17.14 seconds; faster than other porcelain cutting blades on the market today.

          Answer: 
          I'm sure the blade and machine are capable. If you can, do it in several cuts increasing depth as you go. Also make the cut slowly as need be, this will help you to keep from burning out the blade.
