          This light tool is quite waterproof, and it should survive a drop up to 40 feet without damage. Best of all, it comes with a 5-year limited warranty.

          When the project calls for an oscillating tool (also called a multi-tool), selecting the correct blade for the job is critical. Even a high quality oscillating tool will vibrate excessively if the blade is not up to the job. Some cheap blades become dull within two or three minutes of use.
          Blades come in many different widths and lengths. I would call this Milwaukee 48-90-4015 pack a "standard size". So far, the first blade from the 10-pack is still being used even though I have used it on several types of wood hardness. These blades are sharp out of the pack, and they remain sharp through many applications.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Sharp

          On one of our decks we have several posts that do not have railings attached. This might come later, or we may extend the deck. In the meantime, we will probably install post jackets on these posts. However, I might also build up a short section near the top of each post so as to accommodate the 5 inch post top over the 4x4 posts as our color is not exactly white and we would paint the post top to match.
          This item is actually 3 pieces, two of which separate quite easily. It is designed with a post jacket fit. We like the design.

          A metal angle is commonly used for constructing bicycle racks, bed frames, motor mounts and many other utility functions. Common types of angles include: flat, flat offset hole, punched hole, slotted hole and slotted offset hole. Slotted and punched whole angle is ideal for use in metal racks, storage shelving, garage door track frames and corner bracing. Angles are available in a variety of sizes and materials and can be cut to length to suit your specific job requirements.

          Ninety degree angle iron, steel, aluminum is very useful for projects. It resists bending by virtue of its shape. This aluminum angle is just one-half inch wide in both angles. This makes it useful more as a trim-out or dress-up item, having some value as well due to its durability and corrosion resistance.
          This length of aluminum angle will be used to trim out the cabinet sides adjacent to a new dishwasher. The remainder will be used in a section of my workshop.

          Exterior hardware should resist rust, which usually means Stainless or similar finish. This is a set of 2 light duty hinges with screws included. However, the included screws are quite small. This hardware will be used in the installation of hinged lattice panels. The top half of each hinge will be attached to a 2x4 using 1-1/2" long stainless screws. The part attaching the lattice panels will have stainless screw-head bolts, washers and nuts. The predrilled holes in the hinges easily accommodate larger screws such as I am using. I like thae fact that the hinge-pin is not removable.

          It would not hurt to try this product on the awning fabric. However, the rolling up and out of the awning may limit its effectiveness.

          Answer: 
          On the remote, the third button down from the top controls the light. Hold that button down and watch the light and you should see it will slowly begin to dim . It has a really wide range as the light goes from Fulbright to barely lit.

          Has anyone experienced an issue with the lamp heads filling with water? The Defiant worked great for 9 months. Then one day I noticed it was not working. It is mounted under an eave. I did caulk with silicone around the outside electrical outlet box and the Defiant when I installed the light. After taking it down I inspected the light and did not find cracks, chips, or anything that would indicate why water got into both lamp heads. I was able to take it back after calling the Home Depot help line. I got a case number and had my receipt. I was given an in store credit.
