          The 7/16 in. x 1-3/8 in. Pine Stop is a narrow strip of wood that is typically installed on the head and side jambs of doors and windows. Its purpose it to restrict the movement of doors and windows. The profile has a rounded edge to maintain a seamless and modern appearance. The full range of uses for this moulding are limitless in crafts and home projects.

          Like many wood products, molding can be a tricky item. I'm doing a large interior remodel on a vacant home and a bedroom door was lacking most of the molding where the door meets up to it. What remained used this profile so I purchased what I needed to refinish the doorway.
          The profile is a perfect match and the molding has been installed. However, I failed to do a thorough inspection of the piece before I purchased it and after installing, discovered it has a very noticeable warp.
          While some molding products can be adjusted slightly during installation, this wasn't possible on a piece like this without possible cracking or breaking it. I must remember to always check for war-page Read More

          GearWrench introduced the original patented 5 ratcheting wrench in 1996 and quickly became a go-to brand for professional automotive technicians. The innovation didn't stop there. Year after year, the GearWrench brand continues to expand its line-in ratcheting tools and beyond-to help automotive and industrial technicians get their jobs done faster and easier. Having the right tool for the job is critical and technicians working in cramped spaces understand better than anyone the power of this simple statement. This wide range is the backbone that gives GearWrench its reputation for unprecedented speed, strength and access. The result is increased productivity for those who keep GearWrench tools in their box.

          If you need a great set of metric impact sockets (shallow) and come in a great case, look no further. You won't find a better set for less money. Sizes 8mm through 19mm.
          I was an auto mechanic over 30 years and 8 more repairing heavy equipment before retiring. During that time I bought some of the most expensive tools available. But in those days there were huge differences in quality. But that difference has dwindled in recent years and paying high prices for quality tools is no longer necessary.
          So why am I buying impact sockets now after all those years and being retired? First, I still repair all my own vehicles and equipment as well as making a little extra cash working on friends Read More

          But also, my storage facility burned to the ground a few years ago. Many of my tools were still being stored there and were lost. So whenever I'm ready to replace something and I find a quality product at a great price, I buy it.
          Also, Gear Wrench, once a name that only made a couple innovative products has come out with an impressive line of mechanics tools. Don't sell yourself short by overlooking Gear Wrench tools. They'll do what you need them too and like most tools, carry a lifetime warranty. Read Less

          A beautiful fan is the only way to describe this. Of course this is if it fits your decor. Quality is another good word to describe it.
          I've installed a lot of ceiling fans over the years and each brand has had it's challenges. No exceptions here but this is mainly since the assembly of this is quite different than any of the others I've installed except 1 other.
          This is actually my 2nd consecutive install of this particular type of ceiling fan. It's made for indoor or outdoor use. Some might wonder about outdoor use but I assure you an outdoor fan has it's place. The other fan was installed over a deck and suspended from the upper deck.

          This is actually my 2nd consecutive install of this particular type of ceiling fan. It's made for indoor or outdoor use. Some might wonder about outdoor use but I assure you an outdoor fan has it's place. The other fan was installed over a deck and suspended from the upper deck. Not only does it help keep one cool but it also helps to discourage bugs. A breeze makes it difficult for mosquitoes to fly in. And other flying insects just don't like the movement.
          When choosing this type of fan, be sure of the color you want on the blades as they will only fit one way. As you may know, many types have 2 sided blades with each side having a different finish. Not so here. What I like about the blades is they are screwed directly to the fans armature. Other fans have brackets that attach to the armature and then the blades are screwed to those brackets. I feel having 2 screw connections allows for added potential of balance problems. This is my second install of this type and neither needed any balancing.
          It is remote controlled with 3 speeds and a dim-able LED light fixture that keeps it's setting when turned off. So when you turn the light back on it's set to the last brightness it was set to when turned off. The dimming feature here is quite impressive as LED lights are inherently difficult to dim without some flicker. This works flawlessly and you can rely on the light lasting decades (no bulbs to change). The reverse switch is manual and located on the fans housing.
          The only real bad part here is the assembly. The fan portion isn't much different than any other fan except the blade installation which is what I like the most about this fan. However, the light fixture and housing leaves a bit to be desired. The instructions were just a bit sketchy and I had a hard time locating a particular parts location. Also, I'm not very fond of light fixtures that have a glass cover held on with screws. The glass globe has a rubber strip to help protect the glass. But if not careful, a glass globe can be chipped or cracked when tightening the screws. It can also be dropped which would be a disaster. But again, no bulbs to ever have to change so once you have it installed the only thing you'll ever have to do is clean it. Read Less

          I was an auto mechanic for more than 30 years before going into repairing heavy equipment for another 8 plus years. During those years, acquiring quite a cache of tools from big name companies and eventually retiring, much of my tool supply went into storage until I could get my work shop in order as I continued to do repairs for family and friends.
          Sadly, some years ago a fire destroyed most of the tools left in storage. So as I go along and find items I need to replace, more and more I'm finding myself looking to Gear Wrench for replacements.

          Sadly, some years ago a fire destroyed most of the tools left in storage. So as I go along and find items I need to replace, more and more I'm finding myself looking to Gear Wrench for replacements. Back when I was still in automotive, Gear Wrench was basically a start up who sold a very special wrench that nobody else could make. But every mechanic had to have them since they made many jobs so much easier.
          But over the years, Gear Wrench has expanded to just about every corner of the tool market with top quality products and innovative ideas. These adaptors for your ratchets and impact sockets, used to be you might get a universal adaptor with your socket set. Impact adaptors were typically sold individually as were the adaptors to allow matching the different socket drives such as a reducer to use a 1/4 drive socket on a 3/8 drive ratchet.
          This kit eliminates having to buy each item by incorporating them all into a single kit. This kit comes in a great plastic case and includes every option you could possibly need for adapting sockets or turning your sockets into swivels with universal joint adaptors. I could have saved quite a few dollars had this been available back when I was wrenching. This has been a great addition to my tool collection, replacing items lost in that fire. Read Less

          December 3, 2019
          Answer: 
          The needles aren't really like needles but more like clusters. All of the foliage is made of the same material which is more like a fabric. They are rather flexible and not stiff like real pine needles.
          Except for the tips, the foliage is made to the metal wire branches and able to support plenty of decoration without sticking or poking of real needles.

          Answer: 
          The branches are riveted no there are no screws to tighten.
          If you have a branch hanging too low it can be bent to adjust it to where it matches.
          I too had a couple branches that were hanging lower than I liked. To fix this, you need to grasp the branch near the trunk with one hand firmly. With the other hand gradually bend up on the branch until it suits your liking.

          You may have to do this several times to get it how you want it. And the branch wire is pretty strong (doesn't bend real easy) but it will bend. Just be sure to use both hands as you need to support the branch near the trunk whenever bending to avoid damaging the fasteners at the trunk. Read Less
