          These Stywell Banford Sable Brown Upholstered Dining Chairs With Riverbed Brown Seats are really nice! They are not of the same quality as the solid mahogany chairs that came with my dining room set purchased many years ago, but they are of "good quality" and I am sure they will serve the purpose that I obtained them for, (extra comfortable seating for our dinners when my children and there families are in.) they do take a few minutes to assemble, (much easier if you lubricate the threads on the screws before starting), but once they are together, they are very stable.
          Pros: Comfortable, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy

          As soon as you open the box containing this True Guard Chaise Lounge Cover you can tell it is not the cheep cover that will start deteriorating as soon as you put it on your furniture like you normally get from most places, unlike the covers I have had before that did great if that lasted a couple of years, I will be very much surprised if this cover does not last as long as the chaise lounge,and it is a really nice one. The only mistake I made was it is not quite as long as my Chaise Loung, ( due to my poor memory as to how long my Chaise actually is, I thought it was 72" long, which is what the cover is made for, but the chaise is actually 84") but since the cover is made from PVC Read More

          I have had a lot of covers for patio furniture over the last 50 years and most of them really looked good right out of the box but you needed to keep the SKU number handy so you could buy another one in a couple of years, because that is about as long as they would last. After reading about this True Guard PVC Coated 600 Denier Ripstop Polyester Water/UV Resistance cover for my patio Chaise Longe and my Chair that has a 3 year Warranty, I decided that I no longer want to pay $25 to $35 dollars or more every couple of years. I would just buy a good one and maybe be done!

          This Gearwrench 1/2" Drive 6 Point Standard Universal Impact SAE Socket Set is as heavy duty as it looks in the picture. I have a few universal joints and most of the sizes of sockets that are in this set, but a lot of the time when you put the universal joint on a socket, the overall length is to long for the space. Sometimes when you have a project that you don't have the "Right" tool for you can still get by, but there is nothing like having just the "Right" tool fo the job.

          This 0-1/4" ratcheting Tap wrench that is self centering, hardened jaws that are replaceable, it also has a positive , left or right ratchet with a center lock position and also a captive sliding "T" handle. Unlike some of the cheaper versions of tap wrenches I have owned over the years that (came in a set with taps) the taps worked ok but the tap wrenches were junk, this does a great job of holding the taps securely and straight. And I expect many years of dependable service out of it! Another plus is that it costs about 30% less than the "Name Brand".

However since the temperature range that I operate my mower in is always above 32 degrees F, and never above 105 degrees F, I use the oil ( that the manual) says is OK for that temperature range and that oil is 30W detergent SJ, or higher letter rating, (SL or SM).

I have owned many small engines over the years and some were on "hard working equipment) an I never used anything else but SAE 30 weight and I have never had any engine problems, just be sure that you always check the oil level and keep it real close to full because that is the "Life blood" of the engine.
