          Cirrus-X rollers feature a refined polyamide yarn that's soft, resilient and easy to load. This high-capacity European fabric offers fast and complete coverage. Cirrus is great for back rolling, base coats and finish coats. The soft fabric is also very durable and able to weather semi-smooth to extra- rough surface applications.

          I’ve used the Wooster brand rollers before, and liked them. We have a stucco house, so the longer nap is a requirement, although I never used the ¾” nap before. I honestly doubted the advertisement of the nap being ¾”, as it looked like about half of that in the bag. However, I measured the yarn after taking it out of the bag and fluffing up the yarn, and it indeed is ¾” long. This roller definitely holds a lot of paint.

          The Squids Can/Bottle Holder and Trap makes it easy to carry and secure your water bottle, spray bottle, aerosol can or other canisters of similar sizes to prevent dropped objects while working at-heights. There is a zinc plated D-ring on the backside that can be used to attach a tool lanyard to complete your tethering system. To keep your hands free, there's a stainless-steel belt clip on the side to easily attach to a tool belt or fall protection harnesses. The can and bottle holder is made of abrasion-resistant neoprene that stretches to fit 16.9 oz. (0.5 l) containers including most standard plastic water bottles or even a can of WD40. The adjustable webbing strap can accommodate a variety of bottles and cans and features a buckle closure system to safely secure them into the holder. Constructed with heavy-gauge nylon stitching for extra reinforcement, the bottle holster is made to take on use and abuse. The open top design makes drinking water a breeze in any situation, whether at-heights or on the ground. Use it as a can or bottle koozie while your out on the boat, a spray can holder when your in the garage or water bottle sleeve while training for your next race. Whatever it is, weve got you covered. Color: Black.

          We live in the Phoenix area, so having water handy while working outside is standard practice. However, this is the first time I’ve seen such a bottle holder. They offer a couple carrying options. One is a sturdy D ring which would accept a tethering system. I haven’t used the tethering system for anything for safety reasons. The unit also has a heavy-duty clip for either hooking on your belt (or pants if you don’t wear a belt), which is my preferred way. It also has the option to loop it inside your belt, but this would be very awkward. The strap to hold the bottle in place is kind of difficult to disconnect, especially when the unit is anchored to your belt. Over-all, this is a very robust Read More

The only part I don’t like is the sewed-on model label, as it appears this soon tear off, leaving unsightly stitching. It would have been much nicer if this was printed on (incorporate with the larger printed label), or just leave it off. Read Less

          EcoSmarts A19 Smart LED light bulbs are equipped with customizable light settings that can be controlled wirelessly via a Zigbee enabled hub-Amazons Echo Plus, Wink or SmartThings hub. Simply pair the LED bulbs to a compatible hub to utilize the customizable settings of these 60-Watt equivalent A19 LED bulbs. Each of these energy efficient LED bulbs are dimmable and use only 9-Watt of energy to produce up to 800 Lumens, equivalent to a 60-Watt incandescent bulb. Equipped with tunable white technology, these smart LED bulbs can be set on any color temperature between 2700K (Soft White) and 6500K (Daylight), allowing you to choose the perfect light appearance for your space. LED lighting has revolutionized the lighting industry to provide consumers more options that improve the quality of light in their daily lives and reduce energy usage at the same time. The LED bulb will be ready to control only after successful pairing to the hub.

          I’ve used this brand of LED bulbs before, and liked them. I didn’t realize that this series of bulbs require extra hardware (such as Alexia), which I don’t have. I have three kids who are all pretty tech savvy, (one being the IS manager for a major US corporation), and none of them use these Smart Hubs either. I’m giving this product a high rating based on the positive experience I’ve had with other lights from this manufacturer.

          This classically styled wall mount lantern from Home Decorators Collection is sure to brighten the look of any home. The hand applied black finish with gold highlights will illuminate as well as decorate. The clear seeded glass augments the light from the 60-Watt bulb (not included). Die-cast aluminum construction ensures long-lasting beauty and durability.

          This is a nice looking unit. I like the gold highlights on the soft black finish. The “rain drop” glass also looks classy. The small capped nuts which are used for servicing the light bulb are in a position which works pretty well. I used to have a unit in a previous house where it was awkward to install, and I remembered dropping the small hardware in the flower bed. Hard to find. I wished the unit had a motion sensor with dusk to dawn setting.
          Pros: Looks Great
          Cons: no motion detector

          I have a smaller one of these which I’ve found can be very handy in certain situations. Initially, this unit looked very good, but it has a problem. The handle portion of the tool sticks up past the blade. I found that the slot in the blade had enough clearance that you can force the blade up to clear the handle, but this makes using the tool awkward. I disassembled the tool, and ground down the handle on a stationary belt sander, so it now clears. It’s pretty easy to make a neat looking radius with the belt sander. With the modified handle, I’d rate this 5 stars, as it has good gripping power and is accurate. However, since the design had the handle too large, I dropped the rating to 2 Read More

          The Milwaukee 180 mm Metric Rafter Square has a stronger frame and is the most versatile rafter square. The rafter layout square features 3 rare earth magnets providing users with a secure hold on ferrous materials. Scribe notches from 25 mm to 145 mm enable users to easily and accurately rip lumber. A 25 mm cutout in the rafter square provides users with a way to prop pipe to cut it more easily on the job site. A reinforced frame provides users with more durability on the job site while high visibility laser etched markings make the square easier to read.
           

          Does this model come with the earth magnets?
