          These straight-edges are lightweight and strong with black thermo-bonded gradations. All Swanson straight-edges are made of high-grade aluminum alloy with high-visibility, thermally fused, yellow powder paint finish. Increased visibility translates to personal safety when using this straight-edge as a cutting guide.

          This is a great reference edge that's a lot cheaper than using a 72" level. I've used it as a straight edge guide for router and saw cuts, and it works great for those applications. I checked straightness against a premium 72" level, and there was maaaaybe a 0.005" gap in the very middle between the two.
          The yellow powder coat has held up well so far, and I couldn't see any scratches on it even after clamping it with a metal bar clamp that didn't have any clamp pads on it. I haven't gotten it near any solvents yet, so I'm not sure how well the length markings will hold up in the long run, but so far so good.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This chair is an ok deal if you catch it on sale, but for full price I don't think it's worth it for the level of quality or comfort you get out of it.
          It comes in a giant box (that makes a great playhouse for a toddler when it's all unpacked), and assembly is fairly easy. It took me around 15-20 minutes to unpack everything and assemble it by myself. You may want to have a set of allen keys on hand, since the cheap one that's included was pretty much toast after I finished the assembly. Just a side note, when you open it one of the first things you'll see is the vacuum packed back cushion. Don't freak out, the very bright and bold flower pattern is on the vacuum bag, not the cushion Read More

Just a side note, when you open it one of the first things you'll see is the vacuum packed back cushion. Don't freak out, the very bright and bold flower pattern is on the vacuum bag, not the cushion itself.
          The fabric is a decent enough quality, and the chair seems sturdy as well when you get it all assembled. There are quite a few things I don't like about it though. First off, the back cushion never really recovered from being vacuum packed. Either that or it just doesn't have enough stuffing in it. After a few weeks of being allowed to expand back to what it should be, it's still frumpy, understuffed, and looks like it's had years of use. The bottom seat cushion on the other hand is SUPER firm, to the point of being a little uncomfortable. Maybe they should take the average of the two pillows' firmness levels?
          Also, the back side of the chair is poorly upholstered. There are velcro strips to stretch the back fabric down over the base, and they were sewed too high so that they stick out the top on my chair. So unless you're planning on placing this against the wall, there will be unsightly velcro strips sticking out like a sore thumb. Maybe mine was just sewed wrong, but either way that means there's either poor quality control or a poor design. And it's not that I didn't assemble it correctly either - I pulled the back cushion off and reseated it a few times to make sure I hadn't misaligned anything. Read Less

          The Milwaukee SHOCKWAVE Matrix Carbide 3 in. Bit Holder and 2 Bit Set has a new-to-world innovation that solves user frustrations of driver bit tips wearing out prematurely. The impact driver bits combine optimized SHOCKZONE technology with the new proprietary Matrix Carbide Steel to give this driver bit the ability to absorb the peak torques of impacts while also providing users with extreme wear resistance. Additionally, the SHOCKWAVE Matrix Carbide Magnetic Bit Holders are engineered to provide users with up to 3X life to driver bits versus other magnetic impact driver bit holders. This revolutionary advancement in impact driver bit technology is backed with a Lifetime Tip Warranty ensuring that users will continue to be able to drive fasteners long after all other impact bits have failed.

          These bits are super durable for repetitive screw driving tasks. They're designed for applications that normally see the tip of the bit wear out before the shaft or other part of the bit breaks. So these are not primarily made for high torque applications, but things like decking, framing with steel studs, running sheet metal screws, etc.
          I purposefully spun it while camming out a whole bunch in a screw head in order to see how it could stand up to the abuse, and the screw head was completely stripped and there wasn't a single sign of damage on the matrix carbide bit.

          Reduce hot air build-up and keep workers cool. Ura-Mesh shell resists collapsing in heat and humidity. Molded nose bridge seals easily without a metal nose band. Naturally contoured face piece with foam nose flange relieves pressure points. Soft spun lining gives added comfort and durability. Available in three sizes to fit most faces. Flame retardants are added to the shell to help decrease flammability. NIOSH certified to have filter efficiency level of 95% or greater against particulate aerosols free of oil.

          These respirators are super comfortable and a big upgrade over ones I've used in the past. The foam nose cushion is really nice, and the interior of the mask doesn't have any loose fibers to irritate or tickle your face.
          The moldable strip along the nose bridge is wide enough that I can get it to perfectly contour to my face without any gaps along the edges.
          The valve seals well, and is easy to exhale with. I've had masks that had a noticeable pressure buildup until the valve finally pops open, but these have a lower threshold for opening when you exhale. The vent is also aimed down and to the sides, so it's less likely to fog any safety glasses you're also wearing.

          The Kreg rip-cut turns your circular saw into a precision edge-guided cutting tool that makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts in plywood, MDF and other large sheets. With the rip-cut, you can cut with the confidence you want and the precision you need. The rip-cut easily makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts without measuring, marking or having to keep the saw on the cut line. The rip-cut does this with a long edge guide that follows the straight edge of the sheet you are cutting. So, all you have to do is lock the saw in at the measurement you want up to 24 in. using the built-in measuring scale and then make your cut. With a built-in measuring scale, you don't have to measure and mark each cut, either. Just lock the saw sled at your desired cut width and you're all set, whether you need to cut 1-piece or make multiple pieces of the exact same size. Plus, the rip-cut makes it easier to cut down large sheets by yourself. The rip-cut is very easy to use. Simply mount your saw to the universal sled it accepts most left-blade or right-blade saw-sand then slide the sled onto the aluminum rail. After a simple 1-time calibration, you can lock in your cut width (up to 24 in.) using the measuring scale and precision cursor. Then, just hold the edge guide against the edge of your sheet as you guide the saw. You will get straight, accurate, repeatable cuts easily every time.
