          This Kreg Pocket Hole Jig 320 is very useful. I also got the 310, only to discover that the 320 includes the 310. The 320 is quite versatile. It comes as a kit with everything needed in a fitted plastic case, and includes good instructions. As mentioned it can be set up to use as a 310 for narrow stock, or used in two different widths for wider stock. It can also be used for making repairs in tight places. I could have used it many times over the years for repairs to tables and such.

          This Kreg Pocket Hole Jig 310 is really handy. Though I’ve had several occasions when I wanted to drill pocket holes over the years, I’ve never owned a jig. Kreg has a great reputation for woodworking products. The 310 is ideal for single holes with narrow stock, but oil also work well on wider stock. One upcoming project is running a 120 Volt, 20 Amp circuit with multiple receptacles in the unfinished walls of my garage. Since the garage will likely remain unfinished for the foreseeable future and things are always getting stored between the studs, exposed wires hanging between them would be dangerous. I’ll mount 2 x 4’s between the studs for the Romex to be mounted to. Toe nailing is out Read More

I’ll mount 2 x 4’s between the studs for the Romex to be mounted to. Toe nailing is out of the question for me, so I thought this jig would be a good way to mount those pieces. I tried it out with a couple of pieces of 2 x 4 and found that it will be perfect for that job, as well as others. This jig will make it very easy to keep all the pieces on the same level, protecting the wire. Great little tool Read Less

          Husky's 10 in. Soft Jaw Pliers are equipped with soft jaw caps for use on fashion plumbing fixtures. The plastic caps keep the jaws from marring the surface. They feature dual material handles for comfortable grip during use. The soft jaw pliers feature a slip joint allowing for a large jaw capacity from 5/16 in. up to 1-5/8 in. Tool is covered by Husky lifetime warranty.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          These Husky 10 in. Soft Jaw Pliers are good for working on SOME objects that you don’t want to scratch or mar. The slip joints fit well with no wobble, are easy to adjust to size, and hold the size well. The pliers come with two sets of removable soft jaw covers, so you have a spare set if needed. They are clearly marked as “Top” and “Bottom”, and are easy to remove and replace. The pliers can be used as ordinary slip joint pliers, by simply removing the jaw covers, and they should work quite well that way. The handles are cushioned and comfortable in the hand. And, they carry a Lifetime Warranty.

And, they carry a Lifetime Warranty.
          Right away, I tried to use them to replace a chrome shower arm that had been damaged during previous installation using slip-joint pliers with a piece of bicycle inner tube wrapped around the arm (the jaw teeth of the pliers had gone right through the soft rubber – should’ve used the truck inner tube like I had before with no problems). Since the old arm was damaged and rough, these gripped well for removal. I had hoped that these pliers would make the job much faster, and easier, without damage to the finish. However, when I tried to tighten the arm, the soft plier covers just slipped around the pipe, no matter how tightly I gripped them, even with the 10 in. length. They’re just too soft smooth for polished pipe. I think they’ll work OK for jobs where there is a nut or other non-round shape, but I’ll probably just leave the covers off and use the pliers without them. I wouldn’t recommend them for the “Soft Jaw” aspect, except maybe for the tasks listed on the back of the package (see 2nd photo below).

          We really like this Mohawk Home Empress 24 in. x 60 in. Cotton Runner Bath Rug in Barley. The barley color is fairly neutral so it goes well with practically any decor, even the white and blue in our bath. The size is great. We used 60 in. long rugs for many years, but they got rather hard to find. Most bath mats/rugs are much shorter so they’re only good for stepping out of the tub or shower. This one is the perfect size for our bathroom and even covers in front of the sink/vanity for us. It is very plush and provides a luxurious feel under the feet. The cotton fabric is easy to clean, and is stain-resistant allowing it to tolerate everyday drips and spills. Since it is low VOC, we were Read More

          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.
