          As usual, my package arrived in a well packed (see pic.below) cardboard box surrounded by foam alleviating almost any chance of damage. Its a high quality lamp that is well made and very stylish and blends in with most any decor. For any DIYer this is an easy upgrade that can be done in half an hour or less. Only 2 wires and a ground wire are necessary. PLEASE be sure to shut off any power to the circuit that you are working on. A quality well made product that will last a long time.
          Pros: Functional, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, Unique, Very Bright, Well Made

          This pump is everything you need for a basement sink. No need for traps and vents and it mounts easily underneath your sink where you need to pump water up to a drain. With a discharge rate of 1300 GPM you will not have to worry about overworking this pump and it will handle most anything you can throw at it. When possible I like to mount my basement pumps below floor level.So I put them under the cabinet or sink in a 1/2 of a blue barrel so they can act as a sump pump as well.(see Picture). Just gives you a little bit extra security which never hurts.This pump is solid and well made to last a long time.
          Pros: Good Instructions, No Leaks, Reliable

          Home Depot carries a great selection of Drawer pulls as well as knobs, This item 4-15/16 in. length, 3 or 3-3/4in. center-to-center between screws is well made, doesn't collect fingerprints and is an easy retrofit for any DIYer to handle. Even if your current cabinet has knobs you you need to do is get an Alignment template from Home Depot(Internet #202200666Model # AN0201C-G-Q1 Store SO SKU #1000668632) and your on your way. A minor upgrade like this can improve the look of your kitchen or a refinished dresser 100%

          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.
