          I got the tub and shower enclosure for a room in my basement that I wanted to convert into a bathroom. After reading some of the previous reviews , I made sure my walls were 100% straight & plumb, I took all my measurements from the enclosure and tub itself, then built my end wall. Everything went well and as usual I filled any empty space underneath near the ends of the tub with low expansion window foam, for support. Its a good product and the key to the whole installation is reading directions, measuring twice and making sure your plumb, You will definately end up with a rewarding experience and a great looking bath and enclosure.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design

          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.

          Used this to cut a soapstone countertop for a custom brick oven I built.. Cut the soapstone Incredibly, minimizing my finish work, Used it after that to cut some ceramic tile for a repair on a floor and worked just as well as it did on the soapstone. Would definitely recommend this product
          Pros: Sturdy, Effective

          The power inlet box is installed on the exterior of the house near your main electrical panel. Inside, it is hardwired to your manual transfer switch to restore power to your main electrical panel. When the power goes out, you simply connect one end of a power cord to your portable generator outlet. The other end is plugged into the power inlet box.

          Without an inlet box like this, you wind up with extension cords either through a window or through a door. . With this box on the outside, and a transfer switch inside, I don't have to worry about having the generator close to the house, letting deadly fumes in thru a door or window with extension cords thru it. Connection is easy and the plug is on the bottom of the box which helps to keep water out. A good deal all around and I would reccomend to anyone using a portable generator
          Pros: Nice Design, Easy Installation

          A nice set of universal electrical pliers. Comfortable cushioned grip. As with normal stripping pliers you can strip all your average size wires. Also the addition of the bolt cutter and crimping tool means I no longer have to carry crimping pliers as well in my tool belt. Anything you can do to make your tool belt lighter at the end of the day is a good thing….They’re made of a nice quality steel and seems like they will hold up for quite a while. Overall a good investment for a good tool.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Nice Design

          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.

          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.
