          The DEWALT 1/4 in. wood chisel is designed with the professional in mind. The handle is ergonomically constructed for comfort, with a durable metal cap for striking and driving the chisel blade. The carbon steel blade is tempered and hardened to ensure a long-lasting edge and lacquered to protect against corrosion.

          This 1/4" wood chisel is your typical DeWalt tool - top quality. The carbon steel blade is sharp and square with a long shaft, and the handle is big and rubbery, with a steel cap on the end for hammering. This chisel is noticeably better than my old generic ones, it takes a sharper edge and cuts much better. Perfect for squaring-out the round corners left by the router.

          COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint is designed to be everything regular spray paint isnt. From the must-have selection of head-turning colors to the hardworking paint formula and sleek can design, no other spray paint allows you to play with color the way COLORSHOT does. Even better, the innovative COLORSHOT formula has a propellant derived from sugar cane instead of petroleum, so you can feel good about the sweet decision to turn everything in your house a shade of Mermaid.

          COLORSHOT 10 oz. Matte Primer White General Purpose Aerosol Spray Paint is pretty much what you expect in a spray primer. Depending on the material, it might take one coat, or several coats to get a desired result. I've never seen "paint and primer" in an aerosol can before, but it seems to work about the same as a brush-on paint and primer, that is, a little bit thicker than just paint. The can is rather small at 10 ounces, and the coverage estimate is pretty optimistic.

          I got my first whole-house energy monitor years ago to size up a generator after a particularly bad storm - "Irene". The result of actually measuring the house loads and deciding what I really needed and what I could do without, was that I got a smaller generator than I would have thought, which in turn runs longer on less fuel. Less than a year later, "Sandy" hit, and I lived comfortably on that generator for almost 10 days.
          Apart from that, these energy monitors are just generally interesting, and I missed the old one when it died. They've come a long way since then. The old one just read out a few figures on its own display. This one uses your phone or tablet for a display, or Read More
          I got my first whole-house energy monitor years ago to size up a generator after a particularly bad storm - "Irene".

Less than a year later, "Sandy" hit, and I lived comfortably on that generator for almost 10 days.
          Apart from that, these energy monitors are just generally interesting, and I missed the old one when it died. They've come a long way since then. The old one just read out a few figures on its own display. This one uses your phone or tablet for a display, or alternatively a web browser on a PC. This monitor is much smarter than the old one, and is slowly sniffing out the devices in the house and identifying them, so that you can actually break down the energy use. ( With the old one, you could do this by turning things on and off, this one does it automatically. )
          There are lots of options to play with in the software. I do wish the readout was a little less 'for dummies', I'd like to see the actual line voltage, and even better, a trace of it over time, as the power company is not as good with this as they'd lead you to believe.
          Installation is straightforward. I got a new 15amp 220volt breaker, wired the sensor up to it and then snapped it into the panel without downing the house. I'm pretty comfortable doing these things, if you're not then get an electrician. If you don't have room for a dedicated breaker, you can piggyback the sensor on an existing one. My installation is actually in a compartment in the wall above the breaker box, rather than inside the box; the wires are long enough for a number of alternatives. Read Less

          Hampton Bay is one of Home Depot's house brands, which means you typically get good value for your money. The Montrose 3-Piece Folding Wave Glass Bistro Set is much nicer than what you might expect from folding furniture, with rattan trim all around. The trim is nice and tight, no bits hanging off. The chairs are smaller than I expected, but fit me just fine. The seating surfaces are unpadded fabric that will dry quickly after a rain, you can always add cushions yourself.

          EcoSmart 120-Watt Equivalent PAR38 Dimmable ENERGY STAR Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (8-Pack). Perfect lights for many uses, indoors and out. "Daylight" means they throw a white light like the sun, rather than a more yellow light in imitation of incandescent light. The white is not only more pleasing to the eye, but also makes these lights suitable as indoor plant lights. Outside, a couple of high-up mountings illuminates the whole back yard at night, without a lot of annoying glare.
