          10 in. Halloween Day of the Dead Lighted Skull
          This is one great looking skull. It is really well decorated and will make a great Halloween decoration, it actually looks good enough to be displayed year round. It is also much heavier than I would have thought, if you want to leave this outside during Halloween you should not have to worry about it blowing over. There are red led lights installed in the eye sockets, they are quite large and really bright. It is powered by two AA batteries (not included), there is a push button switch on the back to turn it on and off. There are no other features, the lights are on steady, they do not flash nor does it put out any sound. We are thrilled Read More

          12 ft. Inflatable Pumpkin Reaper with Top Hat
          This is a great inflatable. It comes in a reasonably sized box that you would not think would hold something that is going to be 12 ft. tall. Inside the box is the inflatable, some stakes, twine and an instruction manual. When you pull it out of the box it is a bit unwieldy but it is very light and easy to move. The base has four legs that are tied to the inflatable, determine which way you want it to face, place the base on the ground and insert a small metal stake into each leg then plug it in. It inflates in a few minutes. The first time you inflate it you will probably need someone to hold it upright until you can install the larger Read More

The base has four legs that are tied to the inflatable, determine which way you want it to face, place the base on the ground and insert a small metal stake into each leg then plug it in. It inflates in a few minutes. The first time you inflate it you will probably need someone to hold it upright until you can install the larger plastic stakes and tie it down to the loops on the inflatable. After you have it setup you should be able to inflate and deflate it by plugging/unplugging. This it really tall, 12 feet tall, if there is much wind you might have to tie it down really well. It has a couple of lights in the body and the head lights up bright. At night if you want someone to see the body you will have to illuminate it with other lighting. We really like this inflatable, it is very cute and noticeable.
          Pros
          Well made
          Really tall
          Head looks really cool
          Stores easily
          Cons
          Might be though to keep tied down in a wind

          Frighten your guests with this creepy Airblown inflatable character. The dragon is perfect for any Halloween scene. Plug it in, stake it down and watch the magic of this Airblown Inflatable unfold.

          4 ft. Pre-Lit Inflatable Dragon
          Great looking dragon. The package includes the inflatable dragon, an instruction booklet, four small metal stakes, twine and a power adapter. Simply remove it from the box, locate it where you want it, attach the power adapter (it will only plug in one way) and plug it in. There is a small amount of weight in each foot that helps to keep it in place. Once inflated it is actually very easy to move around. After it is aired up use the stakes and twine to secure it. There are a couple of lights within the body that don’t really do much to illuminate it. If you really want to light it at night you will need to provide some other external lighting.

          This is a great looking dragon that is easy to setup and being an inflatable it stores easily in a fairly small box.

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Shut Off Valve intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market.  No tools are required to make a connection.  They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security.  When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe.

          Sharkbite 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Plastic Shut Off Valve ---
          These valves have a really big handle making it very easy to turn them on and off. I am a homeowner who does his own maintenance and these connectors make plumbing jobs so much easier. They are designed to work with SharkBite PE-RT or PEX. Simply cut the pipe to the correct length and push it all the way into the connector then turn the collar to align the arrows and you have a leak proof joint. Being able to turn the pipe even after it’s connected makes these even better. These even work great on the plastic plumbing inside my RV.

You can easily remove these connectors without any tools, simply turn the collar so the arrows are not aligned, hold down on collet and pull the pipe out. These are much easier to remove than the brass Sharkbite connectors. According to Sharkbite these connectors are code approved for behind the wall installations. Be aware that these connectors are substantially larger then the brass push to connect fitting so if space is really tight you might have a problem. Also, the brass fitting indicate they can be used on copper while the plastic connectors apparently do not.
          I also have the tools for using crimp connectors on PEX, while the crimp connectors work it can be difficult to get the crimp tool into the space where you are working and it is all but impossible to remove the crimp ring to reuse the connector, these Sharkbite push to connect connectors are much easier.
          It is a joy to use a product that works as advertised. Overall this is an excellent product.

          Does this saw actually come with a laser? The product listing on the Home Depot website states that it does, but mine doesn't appear to have one, just the hardware that would hold it. The user manual makes no mention of it, and the parts manual lists line items 183 and 185 as left/right laser covers, but doesn't include a laser either.

          Or since there's obviously a spot to mount one, is there at least a compatible after market laser available?

          Answer: 
          The saw does not come with a laser. You can probably figure out how to mount one but the instruction manual does not mention anything.
