          These chairs are elegant, comfortable, and - being rust-free aluminum - will probably live on my front porch for many years to come. Sold as a pair, they arrived flat in a box. Although they come with all the tools needed for assembly, I only used the included tools in tight places - otherwise I used a socket wrench and a drill. I also added loc-tite to each screw to prevent loosening over time. I'm very happy with the final result - the style is elegant without being fussy and they feel sturdy and comfortable.
          Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Sturdy

          The modern industrial decor trend continues to be a must-have for any space and the stylish design of the McKibbin 1-Light Swing Arm Wall Sconce is the perfect accessory. It's not just the ultra-functional swing arm that makes it perfect - the shade pivots so the light can be pointed in various directions. The matte black finish is expertly accessorized with brass accents and is a knock-out against an exposed brick or concrete wall. The 2-in-1 design allows you to place the light anywhere you want. You're not restricted by the need for an existing hardwire connection - simply use the six-foot cord to place your sconce anywhere there's an outlet. The options are endless!

          I love this adjustable-arm sconce in my movie room. The matte black and gold finishes are lustrous and elegant, and all the materials and moving parts feel sturdy and high-quality. I installed two of these in my movie room: both lights work as ambient lighting while watching movies - the solid shade prevents glare on the screen - and one of them is installed near a chair, where I can also use it as a reading lamp. The light can be installed as either a plug-in or hardwired light; it comes with the cord and plug wired for plug-in installation, which is how I installed it. Installation was fairly easy - I found a stud so that at least one mounting screw went into solid wood.
          Pros: Looks Great, Well Made, adjustable side-to-side

          Spring is the best time to feed birds. Flocks of goldfinches shed their dull feathers for a bright gold plumage. Attract these brilliant little birds with seeds suited to their preferences and bill size. Nyjer is traditionally used, but a variety of sunflower kernels and small yellow millet guarantees success for the spring goldrush. Finches' tiny bills are masterful at handling small seeds, and pound for pound, Lyric Finch Mix is easier on the budget than straight nyjer. Finch mix ingredients are sunflower kernels, small golden millet, nyjer seed, canary seed, canola seeds.

          The house finches and dark eyed juncos in my neighborhood love this stuff. It appears to be less than half millet, unlike some mixtures that are mostly millet. The dark eyed juncos do a good job of cleaning up the millet that spills on the ground. I use it in various sizes of feeders. The seeds in the mix are all fairly small, so it comes out of most feeders easily for the birds - but it's too small to use in a feeder designed for big seeds like sunflower seeds (save the sunflower seeds for those and you'll attract a wider variety of birds to different types of seeds). I like to get this in big bags and then store any leftovers in a 5-gallon bucket with a lid.
          Pros: good seed mix for different birds

          This stainless steel electric grinder is the perfect size to grind a few deer a year. The Big Bite technology allows the auger to take an extra big bite of meat and then move it into the grinder head quicker than other grinders. Grinds approximately 7 lbs. per minute.

          Long-time elk hunter here, and for my 20 years of hunting, my husband and I always used the heavy hand grinder my dear Mom gave me when I got my first animal (a pronghorn). I’ve resisted getting an electric grinder because I like to leave lots of connective tissue in my ground (I think it helps adhesion for burgers and sausage), and most of my friends with electric grinders burned them out within less than 5 years. So the fact that this grinder has a 5-year warranty speaks volumes compared to cheaper, less durable or powerful grinders.

          Long-time elk hunter here, and for my 20 years of hunting, my husband and I always used the heavy hand grinder my dear Mom gave me when I got my first animal (a pronghorn). I’ve resisted getting an electric grinder because I like to leave lots of connective tissue in my ground (I think it helps adhesion for burgers and sausage), and most of my friends with electric grinders burned them out within less than 5 years. So the fact that this grinder has a 5-year warranty speaks volumes compared to cheaper, less durable or powerful grinders. So far it works really well - even with connective tissue - and should last a long time, as long as I follow two cardinal rules: cut pieces to ~2” thick for feeding, and don’t get too aggressive with the pusher. I only use the pusher to get close to the blades but I do not actually force the meat through. The grinder comes with cutting plates for 3 sizes of grind. I typically use the coarsest one first and then re-grind anything that will become burger or sausage using a finer plate. (Note that LEM makes an excellent cylinder-style sausage stuffer, and it is superior to using the grinder to stuff casings - well worth having a separate dedicated tool.) I’m hopeful that this grinder will outlast all the cheaper ones - so far, so good! (I rated 5 stars overall but only 3 for energy efficiency because my hand grinder is still the most efficient - but not nearly as time-efficient!) Read Less

          GenTap introduces a simple tool to solve the long suffered problem of unrolling rolled wire fencing. Using rolled fencing is a challenge because it does not straighten out as you remove it and tends to roll back on the user, often nicking their hands and arms and risking damage to the eyes. The application of the fence looks wavy and uneven since the bend is still in the wire. The GenTap Fence Straighter solves that problem quickly and easily. The Fence Straightener flattens and straightens chicken wire and hardware wire used for animal pens, chicken coops and general fencing by rolling the wound fencing through 3 wood rollers on a metal bracket that take the bend out of the wire by bending it back to its original straight condition.

          My husband has talked about making something like this for a long time, and I send kudos to the people who finally did it! Yes, you could make your own, but somebody else already did. We have chickens in an area with raccoons and dogs-at-large, both of whom have killed chickens in the past, so we need our chicken coop and chicken yard fenced like Fort Knox. This was fairly easy to use - if you’re using 36” wire on the 36” straightener it’s tough to keep it exactly aligned - but it works very well for straightening/tightening the chicken wire if you use it carefully.

          Answer: 
          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.

          I'd recommend getting a new faucet as it would be easier than drilling new 8" holes for your old faucet. If you want an 8" faucet though, you could certainly drill new holes (if you have proper tools and skills) and then get an ecutcheon to cover the old holes.
