          This is a great faucet..it has a Dual-function spray with stream and wide spray operation the Coil around hose is removable for easy cleaning if necessary. Has a nice spring to hold it up and a beautiful matt black finish that always looks great. It is easily installed and comes with good directions. An avid DIYer should be able to remove there old faucet and install this new one in less than an hour. Dont forget to pick up some teflon tape.

          These are great to have around. I always keep a bunch of knobs, drawer pulls and assorted hardware around for a quick repair or a refinishing project, these also come with a 1" or 1-1/2 inch screw so they can be used for drawers or cabinets. They are inexpensive and with the nice finish can give a high end look to all types of furniture or cabinets.

          What will they think of next... These bolt holders make it much simpler to install a toilet, Before these I would take a piece of the old wax ring and mush that around the bolts to hold them in place. Now simply slide these over the bolts and it holds them upright and where you want them while still being able to easily move them. They should include these with all new toilets and bolt replacement sets,

          This a a solid well made good looking cabinet/drawer pull. Easy DIY installation. Great for Updating the look of most any cabinet or drawer pulls. You can see the difference in the pic below. All I'll have to do is put a little hole filler where the other knob was and you wont be able to tell there was a hole. The great thing about cabinet hardware is you can update the look of a whole kitchen/bathroom wothout spending a ton of money and you can do it yourself..

          Answer: 
          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.
           

          Will this blade work with the Qep 3/4 HP, 4.8 Amp motor wet tile saw to cut granite?

          I want to cut 2" thick granite (staight cuts only) and the length is 16" for my bathroom vanity backsplash. I already have the Qep 3/4 HP, 4.8 Amp motor wet tile saw. Is this enough horse power to cut the granite and can this blade cut the 2" thick granite?

          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.
