          Having spent more than 30 years as an auto mechanic, 8 years as a forklift mechanic and 3 years selling tools, I think I'm a pretty god judge of tools.
          Back then Gear Wrench was an up and coming tool manufacturer with some great innovations and introduced new tools, never before seen, that made a lot of jobs much easier. They were high quality and no other company sold a similar product.
          Today, Gear Wrench has expanded it's line of tools drastically and continues to innovate. And like most tool companies, their products carry a lifetime warranty and are available from thousands of retail locations.

          Today, Gear Wrench has expanded it's line of tools drastically and continues to innovate. And like most tool companies, their products carry a lifetime warranty and are available from thousands of retail locations.
          These swivel sockets (impact grade) are no exception. Most swivel (universal) sockets have a center pin that keeps the 2 parts together. Some spot weld and grind the pin flush with the socket body while others install a safety ring around the pin. If or when these pins come loose, they can be very hazardous. Which is why a pin-less design has an advantage.
          This is a 9 piece set, 1 inch down to 7/16 and comes with a socket rail to keep them organized. With a beautiful finish they can go anywhere any other swivel socket can go. Precision knurled they fit nuts and bolts perfectly. The sizes are marked in bold bronze color which makes them very easy to see.
          If you need impact swivel sockets and want to save big money, consider this set. Read Less
          Pros: Accurate, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy, bold numbers, quality made, comes with socket rail

          I have used Fast Orange hand cleaner for decades now going back to my days as an auto mechanic. Back then we used hand cleaners with solvents to cut grease. But the solvents tended to dry out your hands
          Fast Orange is a more natural product containing citrus products to help cut grease and pumice to help remove grunge. It smells better and feels better without removing the natural oils in your skin reducing the chance of dry cracked hands.

          Everbilt anti-siphon frost proof sillcock assure protection against freezing and undesirable back siphoning. Because they're frost proof, they can stop outside hydrants from freezing and bursting the pipes. Plus, the anti-siphon feature protects against water siphoning back to contaminate the potable water system. Also, unlike anti-siphon attachments, which must be manually drained to prevent freezing, the integral anti-siphon design is self-draining.

          This is a frost resistant sill-cock that is also anti siphon and self draining. If you're not familiar with a frost proof or frost resistant sill-cock, note the length of the pictured product. In older homes, had a hose bib that was simply a basic shut off valve that screwed to a pipe sticking out of the side of your house. These had a tendency (in cold climates) to freeze during winter and crack. And if you failed to turn off the valve in the basement or crawl space, a cracked hose bib could be a major catastrophe.

          Sold here as a sillcock valve, is also known as a spigot or a hose bib, Everbilt makes about the best you can get.
          This is a frost resistant sill-cock that is also anti siphon and self draining. If you're not familiar with a frost proof or frost resistant sill-cock, note the length of the pictured product. In older homes, had a hose bib that was simply a basic shut off valve that screwed to a pipe sticking out of the side of your house. These had a tendency (in cold climates) to freeze during winter and crack. And if you failed to turn off the valve in the basement or crawl space, a cracked hose bib could be a major catastrophe.
          To render this, many years ago this design was introduced. It's long construction made it possible to actually allow the valve to be inside the home instead of right on the side. This greatly reduces the chance of it freezing and breaking. But the inside valve should still be turned off in cold climates just to be safe.
          This particular style has a valve on top that is required in most areas that have municipal (city) supplied water. It's purpose is to prevent a back flow or siphon in the event of a power outage or flood. In such an event it is possible for an outside sill-cock to draw contaminated water back into the municipal system. This being less critical for those who have an on site well for their water but is still highly recommended.
          Additionally, this particular design allows for any excess water in the valve to drain out once the faucet is shut off. This too is critical since in some designs, some water may remain inside the valve after being closed and could still result in a freeze. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, Reliable, High Quality, corrosion resistant, cheap insurance against freezes

          Safety glasses have come a long way from my early days working in shops. They were basically one size fits all and came in only a few styles be they tinted or clear.
          Today we have some great choices that are stylish and much more comfortable.
          I really like these red shaded glasses for their look and comfort as well as the amount of coverage they provide for your eyes. They're also scratch resistant.
          They reduce UV light nearly 100% which makes them applicable for light duty welding and brazing (not arc welding). And they make pretty good sun glasses too.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, scratch resistant, nice price

          BrassCraft 1/2 in. Nom Compression Inlet x 3/8 in. OD Compression Outlet 1/4-Turn Angle Valve controls water flow to household plumbing fixtures - faucets, toilets, dishwashers, icemakers, washing machines, etc. The angle valve is most often used where the water pipe enters the room from the wall. With a 90° turn of the valve handle, you are able to stop the flow of water leading to the plumbing fixture, allowing for maintenance and repair without shutting off the water to the entire home. Color: Chrome-plated Brass.

          These are a quality ball type supply line shut off for use wherever you have a supply line to a faucet. They are 90 degree so most likely would be used where your 1/2 inch pipe comes out of a wall.
          As with ball style shut offs they are 1/4 turn making it easy to stop the water supply quickly.
          They are 1/2 inch inlet by 3/8 inch outlet and are compression at both ends meaning they have a brass compression ring which fits over your pipe and then inserted to the valve. The compression ring then seals to the pipe when tightened. They are compatible with copper or PEX pipe, as well as PVC supply lines and braided supply lines.

          This contractors pack is quit convenient as there are 5 valves per container. The convenience arises in the event you were doing a full bathroom remodel, would typically need 5 shut offs. 2 for the bath, 1 for the toilet and 2 more for the sink basin. And you save money buying them this way rather than individually. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, Reliable, 1/4 turn water stop, fully chromed brass, same quality as other brands

          Answer: 
          They do not. Since each string has it's own plug and control box, they work independent of each other. However, when the next string is plugged in at the end of the previous string, the synchrony is very close since each one follows the same order so at the moment they are turned on, they start with the same pattern but do not run in exact synchrony.

          Answer: 
          These lights DO NOT operate through an app via smart phone. I opted to purchase the adapters. You plug these in at the socket and plug the lights into the adapter. Because the lights are seasonal, I didn't want a special app just to operate lights I'll only use maybe a month. With the adapters, when light seasons over, I can use those same adapters elsewhere.

          Answer: 
          It can most certainly heat PVC pipe. Use extreme caution when doing so as PVC doesn't like being heated especially if you're doing it to make a bend. It has a tendency to collapse at the radius of the bend. But it does work well for relaxing PVC in tight areas. And never heat a glued joint unless your attempting to separate that joint.
