          HOME-FLEX Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing or CSST is great for installation of gas appliances. CSST easily snakes into attic and basements areas, around corners and bends, and through walls. Much easier to work than steel pipe, uses fewer fittings, and weighs a lot less too. Certification through manufacturer is recommended before installing CSST. Color: Yellow.

          This is the first time I’ve used this in place of steel pipe. It’s clean, easy to handle, snakes easily, flexes around corners well and is easy to see after installation. I used it to install a tankless water heater. Just drilled my holes and snaked it thru, There was no cutting, sizing and fitting nipples, Just put a connector on each end and you’re done, you don’t need to buy additional fittings. If you’ve worked with black pipe before you will be amazed at the time savings as well as keeping your hands cleaner and making it easier to work. A great and quality made product.

          My old die grinder finally kicked the bucket so I got this 16 piece HDX kit. It comes with a wide assortment of grinding stones from fine to course. Also included are the two wrenches for changing bits as well as a case and two different size collets. It’s a nice heavy tool and feels solid.
          The assortment of stones is suitable for anything from rough grinding to almost polishing. As long as you have a decent compressor that will supply 3-4 cfm @ 60-80 psi this tool will perform flawlessly. I also got a mandrel to go with it and with a 3 inch cutting wheel it cuts thru most metals rather quick.
          A nice quality tool at an affordable price that should provide years of service.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, all in one kit

          THIS IS A NICE JACKET..... Got this the other day, charged the battery and put it on... This jacket is warm and comfortable. Three heat levels and once I warmed up I had to move to the low setting. It was about 40 degrees out and all I had on was this and a t-shirt and I was plenty warm.
          Its water-repellant so it will be great for snow blowing/shoveling this winter, It has plenty of room to move around in. Also with the reflective strips I can be seen by passing cars and not get hit. I also already have some Milwaukee tools so I have extra batteries, Though I got almost 8 hours of use on the low setting.

          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?

          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.
