          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

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 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

          The under side is solid hard rubber with anti skid (rubber) pins molded to about 1 inch from all edges. However, the top side material will hold water. So if you are using it for shock resistance, keep it dry. I must say, the question concerns me as to exactly why you need shock prevention and in no way would I endorse this product as a reliable source for shock prevention.

          You may want to follow my lead. When using it, I allow a couple days for it to fully cure before applying my finishing coat of latex. So plan accordingly. Also, it has (in my experience) an undesirable odor that seems to hang around for awhile. These are Read More

          This thermostat can be used with your system if 2 conditions exist.
          First your swamp cooler must be connected to your central heating system in the same fashion a central air conditioner would be. This means if the thermostat controls wires for your evap system terminate at the furnace and the evaporator is located within the furnace or use the same thermostat presently.

This means if the thermostat controls wires for your evap system terminate at the furnace and the evaporator is located within the furnace or use the same thermostat presently.
          The other condition is that your current system uses 24 volts to the thermostat as most central heating and cooling systems do today.
          However, if your evaporator cooler system is separate from your heating system, you may still be able to use this thermostat for that system. Again it must operate the thermostat using 24 volts.
          What is unclear in your question is if both your heating and cooling system use the same thermostat. If they do use the same thermostat (and is 24 volt) it connects the same as an ordinary central heating and cooling system.
          The thermostat doesn't care what kind of cooling system you have so long as that cooling system uses the same electrical connections as a conventional cooling system. Read Less

          Answer: 
          I am not certain of the exact process Sakrete uses to process their sand and I'm sure at least part of that process is proprietary.
          However, because the sand is thoroughly washed and sifted it would likely need some type of heating process to remove the water. A 50 pound bag of sand is nearly 50 pounds of sand and a very small amount of moisture. Sand inherently draws moisture by it's very nature Read More

A 50 pound bag of sand is nearly 50 pounds of sand and a very small amount of moisture. Sand inherently draws moisture by it's very nature which makes a zero moisture content impossible. The best way to remove the majority of initial moisture is to run the sand through a kiln to draw off excessive moisture.
