          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. 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 without spending a ton of money and you can do it yourself..

          This is a great looking microwave that runs and performs extremely well. For beginners and DIYers it come with complete and well written instructions for an easy install. My favorite feature about this microwave is the fact that it has an actual exhaust fan. Many other over the stove microwaves just filter the air and return it to the room. This one ejects the smell and the smoke completely outside. I installed mine in my R/V and was fortunate as it was right on an outside wall, so all I had to do was install a vent in the wall. You can exit the exhaust out the back or top of the microwave making it easier to put in the wall or ceiling. It cooks well, has a full 1000 watts and the ceramic Read More

          This is a quality product,and If you have a leaking rocking toilet, Like I did, This will solve most all your problems, Sometimes the leaking will have caused some wood rot under the bowl and you will be required to replace the rotted with new wood. If your doing new construction this particular model comes sealed so you can do a pressure test on the system... And it also prevents garbage from falling down your waste pipe while your working, Just before you install the toilet you can knock out the plug easily with a hammer, According to their website Oatey Has been in business Since 1916, Oatey provides reliable, high-quality products for the residential and commercial plumbing industries.

          First impressions can be lasting and smell is the most notable of the senses. By adding +Scent to your paint you can remove odors and add lasting freshness to the air every time you paint. +Scent is a paint additive that turns paint into a long lasting air freshener and odor eliminator. +Scent Fresh Air provides a breath of fresh air with a light touch of grapefruit, lime and peach complimented by the clean florals of jasmine and lily. PPG +Scent is proudly made in the USA.

          The things they can think of to make these days are incredible. I love using Rustoleum oil based, Only problem is I cant stand the smell, while you paint and while its drying. This little magic packet worked wonders, In the quart can of paint I ended up using half the packet, but for the first time I wasn't nauseous painting and waiting for it to dry.( i was working in my RV (enclosed space)) This stuff really changed the whole experience from NASTY to I didn't mind at all...

          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.
