          someone had a great idea when they thought of this. They are small and fit easily in your toolbox, They are for those times when you don't have enough space to get a big pipe wrench in there,or if you use them with a ratchet you can easily speed pipes on or off, I have a customer who makes these giant paint mixing machines out of stainless steel. They don't like when you leave wrench marks on the pipes. These will get rid of them completely,Just stick in pipe and turn, when the cam lock engages they get a solid grip that won't release.and for the price, you cant go wrong
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy, Well Made

          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

          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.

          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.
