          Actually, I have a “built-in” charging station in a cabinet I made a few years ago, and it works well. However, it is bulky and kind of ugly, but the charging unit itself remains hid. This unit is fairly attractive, and more compact. It will be used when traveling for our cell phones. Like the factory supplied individual chargers, it can handle input voltages 100 to 240 volts, so it’s handy for international travel. I’m going to guess the maximum output power is based on the 240-volt input. For our use, our phones have overnight to charge up, and charging speed has not been an issue.

          Protect the warranty on KOHLER products, always look for the KOHLER Genuine Parts logo. This flush valve was designed by KOHLER engineers to maintain original product performance and promote product longevity. Replace your old or leaky flush valve with an OEM KOHLER part.

          Actually, I have the Santa Rosa toilet, and this is made for the two piece toilet. However, the center section is the same, and it fixed my problem. Before I made any changes, I did the test Kohler recommend: mark the water level in the tank, and turn off the supply line and see how fast the water leaks out. In my case, there were times when I had no leakage, then sometimes it would refill in a few hours, and occasionally, it would not shut off at all. I was pretty sure from that info, I had an alignment issue, and the center components should fix it, and it did. I like the looks of the toilet, and the high seat and good flushing power, but I have had multiple issues with the flushing Read More

          We actually have two different “sets” of knives in our house. One is an expensive set which uses steel for the blades, and they have instructions to wash and dry the knives by hand immediately after use. As a result, we don’t use them on a day to day basis. The other “set” is a miss-mash of cheap knives which see the dishwasher. Some of these do rust, and get tossed. We wanted a decent set of knives for everyday use. These are stainless steel, so they should fill that bill nicely.
          I wish the blades had a protective storage cover for them. These knives have a cardboard cover, which won’t last long. The kit does contain a nice magnetic holder for the knives. However, we have a very expensive

          I wish the blades had a protective storage cover for them. These knives have a cardboard cover, which won’t last long. The kit does contain a nice magnetic holder for the knives. However, we have a very expensive backsplash, and I feel the kitchen looks neater without displaying the knives, so the magnetic holder got transferred out to my work shop.
          The knives are sharp. The colored coating stops about 1/16” from the blade edge, so only bare steel would be involved when sharpening.

          The packages are obviously convenient. Popcorn pops well and has good flavor, but is tougher than the brand we usually use. Also, it has a little more salt than what we like. The salt is in a separate pouch, so you just need to be a little careful not to put it all in. I thought it was interesting that this uses coconut oil (which is my favorite for popcorn), but the saturated fat is only 30%, which is much lower than normal coconut oil. There are several articles that the saturated fat of coconut oil isn’t as harmful. The other interesting detail is that we have a commercial popper, and the smallest batch size they referred to was one cup of raw popcorn, and this is about half that. I was Read More

          I make a lot of cabinets and did a major remodeling of a couple kitchens the last few years. I have always used this style of pulls, as I think the design is clean and functional. I’ve used Liberty in the past and have been well satisfied. However, I’m not sure if this was the only manufacturer I’ve used. The ‘fit and finish’ on these are top notch. Another positive thing I noticed is that the posts are securely anchored in the cross bar. I didn’t try to put a plyer on them, as this would mar the surface, but I have a good grip with my hands, and could not loosen them. I’ve seen a different brand where these were extremely loose, and I believe some actually fell off in the bag.

          If you are a first-time user, be sure you make templates before drilling holes in your cabinet, to properly locate the holes for the handles.

          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.
           
          Type NM-B (non-metallic-sheathed cable) may be used for both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C (with ampacity limited to that for 60°C conductors) as specified in the NEC 1. NM-B cable is primarily used in residential wiring as branch circuits for outlets, switches and other loads. NM-B cable may be run in air voids of masonry block or tile walls where such walls are not subject to excessive moisture or dampness. Voltage rating for NM-B cable is 600-Volt.

          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.
