          Great broom for smooth floors such as hardwood, vinyl, laminate and linoleum. The bristles on the broom are very thin and dense so it picks up small debris most other brooms won't pick up. The design is nice and it glides easily across the floor. The dust pan works very well too and attaches to the broom. The only downside to this broom is the curves design of the bristles can make it a little hard to sweep corners. Made in Mexico.

          These are good standard scratch-pad sponges. Great for cleaning tough grease off glassware, pots, pans, the grill or soap scum off a tub. Durability on these is good and its great to have nine as they will wear out over time. They absorb a good amount of water and clean a little better than some other sponges I have owned. The green scratch pad stays well-attached to the sponge. Made in Canada.

          Handy trash bags to have around for medium size (13 gallon) cans or a 5-gallon bucket in the workshop. These are you standard trash bags, great for general refuse, not construction materials. The plastic is good quality and does not tear easily. Each bag has four points for tying so you can get a tight close on them. I use these bags in the workshop in a five gallon bucket. It is a nice fit for the bucket but a rubber band may be required to hold the bag down around the rim.

          Really good pumice soap. Its nice and thick and the pumice (kinda of like a fine sand) does a great job of cleaning out dirt, grease, paint and other messes from your hands. The size is great and the pump works very well. I keep it down at my slop sink, it should last awhile. Especially if you work around machinery and oils, this soap is a must have. Fragrance is nice too.

          GREAT STUFF Gaps and Cracks Insulating Foam Sealant with Quick Stop Straw Technology is a polyurethane-based insulating foam sealant that fills, air-seals and insulates small gaps (up to 1 in.) inside or out. What's amazing is how easy it is to use, thanks to the Quick Stop Straw Technology, and how it expands to take the shape of cracks and voids. This forms a durable, airtight and water-resistant bond that eliminates unwanted airflow and helps reduce condensation.

          Can I mix this with three parts sand and use that to level out a patio slab before using resurfacer on the entire slab?

          My back patio has a depression about 1-1/4" deep at its lowest point to feather edge and I would like to level it out in about a 100 sq ft area. I would like to try a cement/sand mix instead of spending a lot more money on a self-leveling cement.

          Bar oil leaks while this saw is in the case (maybe an ounce over two-three weeks). I turned the bar oil setting down to minimum and it still leaks but less. The saw is stored on level ground. Is this leaking normal?
