          This is a convenient way to get all the pieces needed to plumb you gas range to your gas source. Everything needed, including pipe sealant and leak testing fluid is included. I do recommend adding a valve approved for gas on the supply line this kit will be hooked to allow turning off the gas to your range without shutting down any other gas appliances. Plus the added benefit of this kit is the automatic shut off in the event of the line getting broken, preventing a potential catastrophic explosion!

          While this light fixture is intended as an area light and to be permanently mounted, I got it with another purpose in mind and it worked great. My intention was to use this as a shop use drop light, for extra light under the hood of a vehicle when doing maintenance and repairs, and it works very well for this. Being LED, it does not have the fragile nature of an incandescent or fluorescent drop light. And the four foot length puts a lot of light under the hood or underneath the vehicle. I attached a 3 wire grounded cord to the included pigtail, soldering the splices and insulating them with heat shrink tubing for a safe and secure connection.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Very Bright

          All I can say is "WOW"!! This is exactly what we wanted, a light weathered gray barn wood look, there are even saw marks and cracks and splits. This flooring captures the look of boards pulled from a hundred year old barn perfectly! And having a light commercial wear surface it should hold up very well in our home. Totally pleased and happy with this floor.

          This flooring is just what we were looking for for our kitchen. The color and texture makes these not appear to be a laminate, but real weathered lumber. As another reviewer pointed out, the are a lot of duplicate boards, but by laying out several boxes we were able to avoid any identical boards being close. The shade of gray does vary considerably, but that was what we wanted for our installation.

          There are time when a heavy longer tie down strap is needed, and this on fills the bill very well. The latch mechanism is very heavily built, with easy to operate spool releases. Being able to snap the side down and slide the strap onto the center spool is much handier than having to start at the end and pull it all the way through. The hooks are heavy steel and the stitching connecting them to the strap appears more than adequate.
          Pros: Nice Design, Sturdy

          Exquisite hardwood grains run along the length of this PureBond Maple Plywood Project Panel, featuring rotary-cut veneers from domestically grown, sustainably harvested trees that exhibit the warmth and timeless quality of natural timber.

The soy-based PureBond technology is formaldehyde-free, producing a water-resistant, nontoxic decorative plywood panel that is not prone to warp like solid wood and will not emit harmful fumes like UF-constructed sheets. A cost-competitive alternative to composite panels that may degrade interior air quality over time, this hardwood plywood from Columbia Forest Products is a superb choice for DIYers and professional tradesmen looking for stellar results on their next woodworking project.

          Why is this Maple plywood $10 cheaper than the Birch and Red Oak plywood? Is there a deficiency with this type of plywood compared with the other 2?

          Answer: 
          The price of plywood is determined by the price of the final veneer. In this case maple is less expensive than birch or red oak wood for the outer veneer that gives the plywood it's grain and color.
