          This is a NICE 7 piece set… 1 Table and 6 chairs. The chairs are very comfortable and fit well and look great with the table with a nice bamboo look. They are very easy to assemble, Comes complete with all screws, wrenches and fasteners required to put it together, they come sealed in a nice blister pack so nothing gets lost. The whole table and chairs took less than an hour to assemble. The powder coated aluminum frames assure long rust and chip free life. The powder coating also prevents scratching as well.
          The chairs have a nice cushion and are very soft where it counts and the additional lumbar cushions help your back. The tabletop is tempered glass for strength and safety. In summary,

          I am just in the process of finishing my basement remodel due to a flood. So after painting the walls and then peeling off the tape that is not supposed to “stick” to fresh paint, there were needless to say several spots to touch up. I thinned the latex paint I used for the walls , got a piece of cardboard for a spray shield and went around the room to the 3 spots with my new V Fan to touch up. I’ve never had an airbrush before so first I went to the closet and tried it in a hidden spot. Then out to the walls, You stick the air supply in your shirt pocket and the 6 foot hose is plenty long. The gun has one button that is very easy, You push down for air and pull back for paint flow. After a little practice this system is very easy to use. It also comes with 2 cans of air, Because the gun will freeze up after about 45 seconds, so I would paint for a little while with one, then switch cans, so the other could warm up again. After completing my touch ups you couldn’t tell where they were, the airbrush allows you to blend them in well.
          Only thing missing is a nice hard plastic case, but I took mine and put it in and old army ammo box and it worked out fine. I was also lucky because I had a small old oil-less compressor which worked perfectly hooked up to the gun and I can spray for hours if I needed or wanted to.

          This is a great product, An easy install for most DIYers. I was lucky as I had a GFCI in the bathrooom right where I wanted to mount the unit. You pretty much just screw in the attachment pieces using the anchors provided in the kit and put it in the wall. I usually take my shower about 7:30 every morning and leave by 9 am, So I put the unit on a timer to go on at 7 am, the night before I also hang my jacket on the unit, now I have an incredibly warm towel when I take my shower and my jacket is nice and warm when I leave, It makes starting your day much better, especially when you hate the cold as much as I do. We also use it for a glove & hat dryer.

          Having had good experiences with wagner products in the past, I was'nt too worried about how it would perform. The reason I chose this unit is because the motor is in the base, not in the handle as with most power sprayers. The spray unit is much lighter now. Its not too noisy either as you dont have the motor buzzing in your face with a seperate base unit either. The hose is long enough for most all interior jobs, Might be a little short for doing exterior work on a ladder though. Just a reminder to people, This is one of those tools you SHOULD really read the manual before you use it. If you do, You wont be dissapointed with its performance.

Proper prep work is also necessary with a sprayer, do your prep, ie:masking and taping off, etc, and this unit will provide you with fantastic results. As well as proper cleaning when finished and you will have a good reliable tool.
          I used mine the day I got it and painted 2 coats of primer on a 750 sq. ft. basement drywall project. As well as painting 2 coats of ceiling white paint after that. It performed flawlessly and left me with a great looking paint job. It took about 30-45 minutes for cleanup. Thius model also seems to have a larger spray cup too. You wont be dissapointed...

          Get rid of messy snow while it's fresh with the Snow Joe iON single-stage snow blower. Whether snow is accumulated on a driveway or walkway the cleanup with this blower is fast as it has a 40-Volt lithium-ion battery system and delivers up to 50 minutes of whisper-quiet run time with zero carbon emissions for cleaner air. The 2 rubber-tipped steel blades cut a swath 18 in. wide by 8 in. deep, clearing up to 2,450 sq. ft. per hour without any surface damage and the 180° adjustable discharge chute allows you to throw snow up to 20 ft. away in the direction you want it to go. Control the height of the snow stream by simply adjusting the chute deflector too. Best of all there is no oil and gas to mix or any costly tune-ups needed just plug in the Snow Joe iON and start clearing instantly.

          I was a little skeptical when the package arrived, It was about a 5 minute assembly and took a little less than 2 hours to fully charge the battery. The hardest part was waiting for it to snow. Snow finally came, The machine is incredible.... There are many plusses and one flaw which can be easily corrected. Run time was about 45 minutes, I had plenty of time to do my driveway which is 2 cars wide and 2 cars deep. The rubber blade cleans close to the ground leaving no snow for ice to build up on. It also cleans my Paver sidewald well, which is almost impossible to do with a shovel because it keeps getting caught on the pavers. This did it great and clean.

It also cleans my Paver sidewald well, which is almost impossible to do with a shovel because it keeps getting caught on the pavers. This did it great and clean. Its QUIET !!! incredibly quiet, Anytime I can cut irritating noise out of my life is a plus. Someone can walk beside you and you can still have a conversation at normal voice levels. Its Powerful, It threw the snow over the full length of a car, as far as 25 feet. I used it again 2 days ago, we had a 9 inch snowstorm and the unit had plenty of power and duration to clean the entire driveway. Also comes with a great LED headlight that provides plenty of light. And the handle folds for easy storage.
          Heres the only minus about it, The snow discharge chute doesnt stay locked into place. After I used it again I replaced the attachments they had with nylon wing nuts and bolts.
          In Summary: This unit is Incredible, Has plenty of power, Will easily remove the snow,(including where the town plow closed your driveway) and is a quality built machine that looks like it will last forever..... Read Less

          A gentle electric radiant heat system designed specifically for dry installation under floating wood and laminate floors. A low profile, line voltage system, it features gradual warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film. Installed easily over a subfloor or over an acoustic/insulating underlayment as part of the overall floor assembly, it uses just 12-Watt per square foot to gently raise the temperature of the floor, conforming to the warranty requirements of many floating floors. The system, which sports an impressive 99% efficiency, includes temperature limiting properties so the film does not overheat. Its available in four convenient rollout mat sizes that will accommodate most any layout. Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.

          the heater itself does not have a built in GFCI. Your power source that's feeding it, whether your wiring it to an existing circuit or installing a new line should either have a GFCI breaker installed on it or most bathrooms are now required by code to have GFCI receptacles in them and you can safely take power from that if the circuit is not already overloaded, If you don't have GFCI in your bathroom Read More

          Yes they will, the 2 cameras dont draw a lot of amps/volts, there should be more than ample power on a cigarette lighter circuit. You could probably run 5 or 6 of them off the same plugs if you wanted to for some reason.
