          A perfect addition to any toolbox, this Metric Hex Bit Socket Set from GearWrench features large, hard-stamped identification for a quick selection. Each piece is designed to be wiped clean of oil and dirt. The bright chrome finish not only makes identification easy, but also protects the tool.

          GearWrench is quickly becoming a trusted name in hand tools due to the quality and features. It is also nice to know that they carry a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty.
          This 3/8 inch Metric set includes 2 mm, 2.5 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 7 mm, 8 mm, 9 mm, 10 mm, 11 mm, and 12 mm sockets. This is a complete set. It does not skip any in-between sizes.

          Overall I find this to be a great fan with integrated LED dimmable light. Inspection of contents revealed two Aire (A Minka Group) remotes, but no instructions. In the recent past, the receiving unit for the remote control unit consisted of a bulky item that barely fit within the ceiling mount. My first conclusion was that this item is missing. However, the wires extending from the motor included an antenna. This is a very nice improvement over the previous separate receiver.

          Overall I find this to be a great fan with integrated LED dimmable light. Inspection of contents revealed two Aire (A Minka Group) remotes, but no instructions. In the recent past, the receiving unit for the remote control unit consisted of a bulky item that barely fit within the ceiling mount. My first conclusion was that this item is missing. However, the wires extending from the motor included an antenna. This is a very nice improvement over the previous separate receiver.
          Assembly looked straight-forward but just to be on the safe side I went to the item at the Home Depot site, quickly located and downloaded the instructions. Since my home has two other "Aire" brand fans it required a random change in the dip switches. While the instructions stated the "Learn Frequency" process lasted 6 minutes, in my case it ran for about one minute in one direction only, then stopped. However, the remote did successfully mate with the receiver in the fan and all of the remote controls work as they should.
          This fan is not just stylish and energy efficient but very functional as well. The price seems a bit high compared to similar items.

          XL Combination Ratcheting Wrench Up to 25% longer than standard combination ratcheting wrenches to access those hard to reach fasteners. Surface Drive Pulse provides stronger grip on fastener; reduces fastener rounding. Ratcheting Box-End needs as little as 5 deg. to move fastener vs. 30 deg. for standard box end wrenches.

          The number one feature of this set in my opinion is no in-between sizes have been skipped. This is a Metric size set and includes every full size from 8 to 24 mm. The longer bodies allow for greater torque.
          Another great feature is the 5 degree ratcheting compared to some that are as much as 30 degree.
          Overall, a lot of design work has gone into these wrenches, such as the slight angles at both the box and open ends, and the more precise fit.
          The included wrench roll is handy have when working on machinery where multiple size bolt heads and nuts are found.
          Pros: Accurate, Good Size & Weight

          Just received a multi-use bag with the brand name, "Bootstrapt". It would work well as a tool bag but could also be used for other purposes. In addition to the carry handles, a removable shoulder strap is included. Outside are seven pockets, one of which includes a flap with hook & loop fasteners. A heavy duty zipper provides access to the main compartment which includes 8 pockets along the sides. A second compartment beneath the main one is accessed from the front near the bottom via a zipper. This area is labeled, "Parts Bin Compartment" and also includes a hard plastic box with adjustable dividers.
          This bag is quite sturdy and well made.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Nice Design

          I'm giving this table a "Good" rather than "Excellent" overall rating simply because I do not agree with the description of the table-top finish. It is not like any "Stone" or "Ceramic" material I am familiar with.
          This table is heavy. The listed carton weight is 132 pounds. The top consists of two equal-size pieces. Only four parts for the base.
          Assembly is really very easy. The two top pieces were place upside down on an outdoor work bench covered with cardboard to protect the finish of the top. Eight screws and washers attach to two "X" shaped legs. Five screws/washers for the cross-beam, but don't attach just yet. Two larger screws with washers and lock washers attach the two top

          Answer: 
          My tiles are all located within a semi-shaded area and do not get hot. Maintenance has been minimal, usually with a leaf blower. A pressure washer is used sometimes but with the wand kept not too close.

          Since there is no separate shut-off valve, it is likely that both are being used. If this is a problem, install just one, keeping the second one available when needed.

          You may move the plant outdoors during the summer but keep in mind that the leaves will burn if subjected to too much direct sunlight. They don't like too much water but thrive on daily misting of the leaves.
