          Our existing set of skews are basically some rods approximately 1/8” square, with a bend on the end to make a round “eye” for a handle. Negatives with that set is that you need a tool to hold the handle, as it gets very hot. We also had issues with the food falling off the small diameter shaft.
          These new units solve both of those problems very nicely. You obviously leave the wooden handle outside of the grill. They remained cool to the touch. The storage case is also cute.
          Nice unit.

          I’ve had a few different styles of luggage over the years. One was rigid plastic design, and it was damaged by the airlines. They “fixed” it by riveting an aluminum patch on it. Very crude, so we junked it. We have had a few sets that are the soft side design (fairly expensive). The last set was a nice set, but in short order, the zippers became awkward to use.
          The plastic sides on these units is kind of flexible, and may be more robust than my earlier unit. Zippers seem like high quality, so I hope they stand up. This is the first time I’ve seen TSA locks. Nice feature.

          Over the years, I’ve installed several grab bars, both in our home, and some for our neighbors. This unit is robust, and the flange hiding the attaching flange works nicely. As with most instructions, they say to locate the 2x4 studs, and screw the flange into those. Obviously, this would be best, but when installing on thick porcelain tile (clear to the ceiling) with cement board behind it, it is pretty much impossible to locate the stud. I’m sure the majority of the users have this issue. It’s too bad they don’t include hardware for this type of installation.

          I've been making some fancy pens, and some of the pen blanks I've used are acrylic. To finish them after turning, you use a series sandpapers, ending up with this 1500. After this application, I use a liquid polish that is normally used to finish of the acrylic headlights. Project turned out very nice. For my application, I used one sheet per pen. The grits I used were 150, 220, 360, 600, 1500.

          Deft is my favorite top coat by far. On bigger jobs, I’ll use my spray gun. However, on smaller jobs, I’ll brush on the coats. I apply two or three coats, then do a light sanding, and apply the final coat. If brushing, I’ll often buy Deft spray can for the top coat, but you can still get a decent final finish with the brush. Don't over brush when applying. Another key advantage is the quick drying. Less chance of dust failing on the finish, plus you can recoat much faster (I usually wait about an hour). The finish is very durable, and very smooth.

          Answer: 
          I don't have Samsung equipment, but I suspect it has blue-tooth capability. If it does, then you should have no problem pairing up to this lock. You should be able to go into settings, and see if there is a Blue-tooth App. on your notebook.

          Answer: 
          If your saw pulls 15 amp (which I expect is correct), then you will want a 20 amp circuit, which requires this I2 gauge wire. I had a table saw this size and used the 20 amp circuit, and would still occasionally trip the circuit.

          I had the same question, but it is not as sensitive to fingerprints as some stainless units. I'm guessing some of the finishes are a patented surface.
