          The Husky 7-Piece Dual Direction Extraction Socket Set brings game-changing innovation to the world of bolt extraction. These sockets feature a tapered throat which allows for easy placement onto a fastener and ensures the fastener will not become lodged in the socket after removal. The sockets have a patented design that allows them to grip in both the left hand (Removal) and right hand (Installation) directions, this would allow for the reuse of a damaged fastener if needed.

          This Husky 7-Piece Dual Direction Extraction Set looks to be great. The set includes 5 SAE sockets (1/4 to 1/2 in., and 2 impact adapters (1/4 and ½ in.), providing for use with Pliers, wrench, ratchet, breaker bar, or impact driver. The unique design of the tapered throat allows for easy placement on and removal from a fastener. It also allows for use in both directions (including left-hand threaded) a feature not seen in other extraction tools.

          Savor red wines more intensely with our Home Decorators Collection Genoa red wine glasses made from lead-free crystal. From tempranillo to Malbec, Merlot to Pinot noir, the wide, round bowl with its deep V-shaped plunge lets wines swirl and breathe in the glass, eliciting aromas and flavors. These wine glasses are top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

          This 4 Piece Set of Genoa 26.5 oz. Lead Free Crystal Red Wine Glasses by Home Decorators Collection is very nice. These glasses are made in Italy of 100% lead-free crystal, and are Top-rack dishwasher safe, though we’ll hand wash them.
          We’re very casual, and certainly not wine connoisseurs, but we do like a small glass of inexpensive red wine with most dinners. Upon unpacking this set, the first thing my bride said was, “Boy, these are really nice, but they’re huge! They’re not gonna fit in our cabinets”. Indeed, they are very nice. We’ll probably keep them safely put away for those special occasions when guests come with good wine, and continue to use our others for everyday.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design

          The Gear Wrench Mechanic's creeper provides optimum access to any low-clearance overhead work application. 6 smooth-rolling offset TPC (thermoplastic polyester) casters and a concave custom-molded composite tub provide excellent mobility and light weight. Durable EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) padding offers outstanding comfort with minimum thickness for an exceptionally low working height.

          I really like this GearWrench 40 in. Creeper with Magnetic Trays. The shape is about as good as it can get for a body to lay on for working underneath stuff like vehicles. It comes with a cushioned backpad and headrest, 2 - magnetic tool trays, and 2 - magnetic bases next to the headrest for tools, lighting, etc. The backrest and tool tray magnets are held in place by a very good peel and stick backing. The headrest and magnetic plates are held with screws. The 6 swivel wheels are large enough to roll over cracks, cords, and other obstructions very nicely.

          I really like this GearWrench 40 in. Creeper with Magnetic Trays. The shape is about as good as it can get for a body to lay on for working underneath stuff like vehicles.

The headrest and magnetic plates are held with screws. The 6 swivel wheels are large enough to roll over cracks, cords, and other obstructions very nicely. You don’t have to concerned about these wheels ever falling out of their sockets. They fit so tightly that I had to use a hammer and large drift punch to get them in all the way. NICE! The magnetic tool trays will be much better for keeping hand tools close at hand than having to roll around and find them on the floor. The magnetic bases next to the headrest make it easy to hold a light right where needed to see in those hard to light spots. The body tub is very comfortable and provides plenty of comfortable room for shoulders and arms to rest and move freely. It sits low on the casters, for a nice, low profile. I also like the handholds molded into it. Making it easy to put up out of the way, and set down where needed.
          I have to put the car on jackstands to get under it, and I’m not due to change oil, etc. right now, so I haven’t been under the car with this creeper yet. But I did set my light on it and roll around the garage on it a bit. I can find nothing to dislike about it. Not cheap, but well worth to price. My old wooden creeper is now in the “give to the grandkids” spot.

          The HP450 Flashlight uses Coasts Pure Beam Focusing Optic System with Slide Focus to harness the light and create a superior beam quality from spot to flood. The Bulls Eye spot beam pattern gives you a great focused spot while producing an outer ring of flood light which allows you to see a broader area to the sides. The flood beam is broad and consistent, giving you a clear field of vision not seen with typical focusing flashlights. A quick cycle switch allows you to select light output settings with ease. Built tough, an impact-resistant, lightweight aluminum casing resists rust and corrosion. The HP450 also features an unbreakable LED and rubberized O-ring for reliable water resistance and durability. With Coasts commitment to quality, the HP450 Flashlight is impact resistant, weather resistant and its LED is virtually unbreakable. The HP450 Flashlight is backed by Coasts lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Tested and rated to ANSI/FL1 standards. Color: Black.

          Tough not quite as described, this COAST HP450 1400 Lumen LED Flashlight with Slide Focus is a nice flashlight. It is not “Slide Focus”, but focuses by turning, which I really like better than “Slide”. I’ve found that the Slide focusing types always slide when stood on end, so they are not focused where I left them. This light “locks” where you set it. Anyway, this is a nice light. It has three power settings, Low (185 lumens), Medium, and High (1400 lumens). Brightness is easy to change with the tail switch, starting at high. The switch is also momentary, so you can get light, and cycle it, by touching it lightly, and when released, the light is off, which is a nice feature. It requires 6 Read More

The switch is also momentary, so you can get light, and cycle it, by touching it lightly, and when released, the light is off, which is a nice feature. It requires 6 AA batteries (included), which are easy to replace. The body is heavy duty aluminum and appears to be well-sealed against moisture, dust, etc. The size and weight of this light is very good. The “Pure Beam Focusing” optic is excellent, with no “dead” spots in the illuminated area. I like the “halo” effect that provides good peripheral lighting, even when set to a narrow “spot” beam. When set to wide beam, it lights a very wide area nicely. While it says that the beam is good to about 800 ft., I don’t think it will really illuminate much at that distance, though I’ve rarely seen a need for that with an everyday flashlight. I have other lights for long distance illumination when needed. About the only thing I’m not crazy about is that this light is round with no flat spots, so it rolls around when laid on its side. It also comes with a Lifetime Warranty. Read Less

          Hex bolts are hexagonal head fasteners with machine threads. They are commonly used for machinery and construction projects, both residential and commercial. Fully threaded sizes provide excellent grip strength. Partially threaded sizes help where shear resistance is important. Secure with a corresponding nut or use in a tapped (threaded) hole.

          Answer: 
          Hey MtnMan,
          The head marking on these bolt is ADC, which means nothing about the grade. That being said,, these are SAE Grade 1 low-carbon steel with no strength rating, or grade 2 low-carbon steel with a proof load of 55,000 psi, minimum tensile strength of 74,000 psi, and minimum yield strength of 57,000 psi. Hope this helps.
           
          The GearWrench 11-Piece. 3/8 in. Drive SAE Crowfoot Wrench set runs from size 3/8 in. to 1 in. It is perfect when a typical socket is too large or the application prevents you from getting over top of the fastener. This set is made from premium alloy CV Steel.
