          COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint is designed to be everything regular spray paint isnt. From the must-have selection of head-turning colors to the hardworking paint formula and sleek can design, no other spray paint allows you to play with color the way COLORSHOT does. Even better, the innovative COLORSHOT formula has a propellant derived from sugar cane instead of petroleum, so you can feel good about the sweet decision to turn everything in your house a shade of Mermaid.

          I do a LOT of priming in my model workshop and this new safer formulation spray paint seems to work well.
          I have to prime plastic before I put a color coat on it and even though I use a respirator I'm looking for a safer paint to use in the shop.
          This new paint seems to fit the bill.
          I gently warm the can before using and shake well, this helps with any spray paint and gives you a finer mist.
          It applies nicely, dries fast, dries DEAD FLAT with no shine what so ever and fills in small imperfections. Just like a primer should.
          Adhesion to plastic seems to work well and it doesn't scrape off styrene easily.
          The can will last about 6 models which is pretty good and comparable Read More

          I just used it on a new model and it's working fine and allows me to spray and brand or color over this primer with no issues.
          I'd recommend it. Read Less

          When your eyes require reading materials to be held further away to focus or more light to see clearly, it is time to purchase reading glasses. Other indicators may be blurred vision at normal distance reading, headaches or tired eyes after working. Magnifeye reading glasses provide superb optical clarity. These multi-pack readers are a great value, offering high quality for a low price.

          These are nice inexpensive glasses for my model workshop.
          Sometimes I need to see a little closer and these low magnification glasses work perfect for that task. Slip them on and details come a bit closer.
          They look nice and fit well, everything you could ask for.
          The ear pieces are flexible and have small grooves in them to stop them from sliding forward. The nose pieces fit well and the plastic lenses are thin and lightweight. See dimensions in my pics.
          I have a big head and they don't pinch or bind.
          This grey style pretty much disappears on your face so you don't have that studious look.
          I'd recommend them for handy readers.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Stylish

          This is an inexpensive transfer pump for small clean up jobs or emptying things like aquariums and water heaters.
          It comes with almost everything you need to stat pumping water out of a container or floor, you will need to provide a garden hose to attach to the outlet and some vegetable oil to prime the pump.
          In the box will be the pump, intake hose, intake strainer, intake smooth surface suction plate and spare parts (impeller, motor brushes, o-ring)
          This can be used with freshwater only. The box says no chlorinated pools or salt water.
          It cannot pump solids or large chunks of debris.

          It works fine for emergencies or clean ups but it's not a permanent sump pump and should not be used as such.
          Having to prime it each time with vegetable oil is kind of annoying, so just put a cheap bottle of it in the box so you always have it.
          I'd recommend it as long as you know it's a small pump for smaller jobs. Read Less

          The Everbilt 2-pack universal rubber washing machine hoses are built with braided reinforced EPDM rubber for added burst strength. The construction materials prevent leaking, corrosion, kinking and crimping making them highly durable and reliable.The rubber is color-coded in blue and red for easy identification and installation to hot and cold water supplies. The washing machine hoses are equipped with 90-degree elbows to allow the washing machine to install closer to the wall and reduce strain on the hose. This 2-pack includes (1) 4-foot red rubber hose and (1) 4-foot blue rubber hose.

          I grabbed these for emergency replacements in case my existing hoses burst.
          You'll get two 4 foot hoses, one red, one blue, super flexible with one straight end and one precurved connector.
          The curved end makes it easier to install the washer closer to the wall without kinking the hoses.
          All washers needed are included and installed in the hoses.
          Like all washer hoses they screw on and off easily by hand.
          The hoses have printed "Replace every 5 years" on them. My hoses were stamped Aug 2018, so they have been on a shelf for almost a year already.
          They carry a limited one year warranty.

          A nice cushion, easy to assemble and SUPER comfortable.
          In the box you'll get the cushion cover and the cushion compressed to make it easier to install into the cover.
          The cushion and cover go together easily and zip right up ready to use. You don't have to fight to get it together.
          It's light color doesn't get hot in the sun and everyone likes sitting on it or resting their feet.
          The large 25x22x4 inch size makes it a great cushion for sitting right on the ground. The kids love it.
          Being 4 inches thick it's comfortable for anyone and has enough cushion for big users.
          I highly recommend it.
          Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy to Assemble, Looks Great
