          Our Valved Respirators with Gaskets are designed to help you stay cool while providing you with a better fit. The dust masks feature a comfortable tight sealing gasket creating a secure seal on your face for all day comfort. The respirator valve reduces the construction masks internal temperature by 10°F keeping you cool while at work. Milwaukee masks feature 2 soft adjustable straps and a flexible nose bridge allowing you to achieve a better fit. The respirator masks are ideal for non-harmful sanding, grinding, sawing and insulation particles.

          A respirator mask is required for numerous jobs. Sanding, replacing brakes, spray painting and many more jobs.
          Currently I'm doing a large drywall job and sanding a lot of joint compound. Definitely you need to wear a mask for this job. I've tried a lot of those drug store masks with little luck. Sure they're cheap but that might be their biggest problem. They don't work well, are hard to fit. The stapled elastic bands sometimes rip out and to get them tight enough, some of us have to tie a knot in them. And the bands don't fit your head well. If they have 2 straps, the bottom always slides down the back of your neck. Not to mention, the mask itself often doesn't fit your face well. For Read More

If they have 2 straps, the bottom always slides down the back of your neck. Not to mention, the mask itself often doesn't fit your face well. For me those cheap masks just don't work.
          I recently got these Milwaukee respirators and all that's changed. They fit my face and have a foam gasket around the inside that is comfortable but also creates a seal. The exhale valve in the center helps prevent moisture build up and aids with breathing. And finally, the 2 well placed straps are fused to loops on the masks sides (not stapled) so they wont come off. And instead of having to tie knots in the back, the straps have a cinch that you just slip along the strap until it fits tight and comfortable.
          If the job calls for a respirator mask, use one that actually fits and really works. Plus it's highly re-usable. No throw away. So even though they may cost a little more, they're cheaper in the long run. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Comfortable, adjustable, doesn't hold moisture, long lasting, made to be re-used

          What a lovely piece. If you enjoy being decorative during the holidays, consider getting this Carriage/Horse combination for indoor or outdoor use with LED lights.
          It is a beautiful item that can really dress up a yard. We got it just in time as we're experiencing a very early winter this year with a few inches of snow on the ground, this really looks great.
          Most won't opt to display this indoors as it is rather large requiring about 4 feet by 6 feet of space. But when you see my pictures of it on the lawn amid the fresh snow, you're going to want one.
          Keep in mind, it needs considerable assembly. It took me about an hour (give or take) to put it together. And a tip. Unless you Read More

          The 3/8 in. Socket Rail is a great way to keep your sockets organized and handy. This convenient tool features ball bearings on socket tags to hold sockets in place, which helps prevent them from getting lost. It is color coded by drive size for improved organization.

          These are a very nice rendition of the socket rails of old. The metal socket rails could have sharp edges and the socket clips would wear out and/or lose plating. Other times your sockets seemed like they had become welded to the clip. The socket clips on these are more like how your sockets would be retained to a ratchet wrench or extension, by a spring loaded ball. Very effective at holding them to the rail yet not a battle to get one off. My only dislike is 10 clips isn't enough and my store didn't sell extra clips. So in order to fit my sockets, I had to count how many clips I needed and purchase enough extra's to accommodate my socket sets. It would also have been nice if they were Read More

So in order to fit my sockets, I had to count how many clips I needed and purchase enough extra's to accommodate my socket sets. It would also have been nice if they were about 2 inches longer as there wasn't room on the rail for my 2 smallest sockets.
          But 1 other nice feature over the old metal rails is, the clips cannot slip off the ends. The right end (in the picture) prevents any clips from sliding off. The left end (in picture) has a raised clip or stop. If you want to remove socket holders you can simply press down on the clip so the holder will slide off easily. They are made of a good quality plastic so I don't see that retainer clip becoming brittle and breaking anytime soon.

          Exquisite. I changed out my kitchen faucet less than 2 years ago but just didn't care for it. It had a pull down sprayer but had too wide a spray pattern and just made a mess. The trigger to switch between spray and stream had already started to show signs of wear. It was time to try something else.
          So we got this Glacier Bay faucet because it more closely matched our sink (stainless finish) and just had many more features. It has a more precise spray pattern and the trigger feels sturdier. Additionally, we like the high arc allows for more clearance for washing pans or filling pitchers of water. And fill pitchers we will since this faucet has a dual filtration system built in that Read More

And fill pitchers we will since this faucet has a dual filtration system built in that electronically senses when it's time to replace them. A small alarm (battery operated) fits comfortably under the sink on the back wall of the cabinet. The filters are produced by GE which is a well known name in water filtration products.
          The spout swings a full 90 degrees left or right. The single handle design takes a little getting used to, but once you do, will find it more convenient than other designs.
          The same handle also operates the filtered water dispensing that emits through a separate opening but on the same spout. The handles position also switches the spout between filtered or non filtered. From the off position, just pull the handle forward for filtered water. This way your not using the filtered water needlessly to wash dishes or hands.
          Installation wasn't nearly as difficult as I had expected. When you open the box, it's a bit intimidating. However, the instructions made the install a breeze. I would buy this again. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Modern, Strong Water Pressure, Stylish, filtered or non, very nice pull down sprayer, pull down can also dispense filtered water, electronic (battery) filter monitor, very good instructions, very nice finish

          Husky tools have been around as long as I can remember. I spent more than 30 years an auto mechanic and more than 8 repairing handling equipment. I've also worked in other fields requiring tools and even sold tools for 3 years.
          During those years I've owned some Husky tools. But when your in the auto repair business, a lot of guys don't go to a store to buy their tools. But this also means they spend a lot more for them.
          But if you want to save a large chunk of cash and get a good quality product with great coverage, you need to consider this Husky 3/8 drive socket set. As with most tools, they carry a lifetime warranty and are carried at thousands of retail stores everywhere. What's Read More
          Husky tools have been around as long as I can remember. I spent more than 30 years an auto mechanic and more than 8 repairing handling equipment. I've also worked in other fields requiring tools and even sold tools for 3 years.
          During those years I've owned some Husky tools. But when your in the auto repair business, a lot of guys don't go to a store to buy their tools. But this also means they spend a lot more for them.
          But if you want to save a large chunk of cash and get a good quality product with great coverage, you need to consider this Husky 3/8 drive socket set. As with most tools, they carry a lifetime warranty and are carried at thousands of retail stores everywhere. What's more, they will get the job done just as well as those much more expensive tools. And quite honestly, a properly used tool is rarely a broken or worn out tool. Most mechanics lose a tool way before they ever break one.
          This is a 54 piece set of Standard and metric, shallow and deep sockets and includes 4 spark plug sockets. The Standard shallow has 14 pieces ranging from 1 inch down to 5/32 . The deeps have 10 pieces from 1 inch down to 5/16. The metric sets, shallow range from 21 mm down to 7 mm (14 pieces) and the deeps from 19 mm down to 8 mm (12 pieces)
          But you also get the 4 spark plug sockets, 13/16-3/4-5/8 and 8mm. The 8mm is rare but common in many dirt bikes and other equipment. So if you work with those sorts of things, you'll appreciate it having been included. All the spark plug sockets have retainers to prevent dropping a spark plug causing damage to it.
          Keep in mind, if ordering this set, be sure to order socket rails if you need them, are not included.
          Considering I lost a large number of my tools in a building fire, these have been a very good replacement for me. Being retired (but still wrenching) I've saved a bundle buying from Husky. Read Less
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy, well marked, great size coverage, lifetime warranty
          Cons: doesn't include socket rails or trays

          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.

          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
