          6 in. x 4 ft 24-Watt Dimmable White Integrated LED Edge-Lit Flat Panel Ceiling Flush Mount Light with Color Changing CCT
          This Feit Electric ceiling light does deliver an outstanding amount of usable light (see photo attached), but it was difficult to mount per their instructions. They assume you are replacing an existing light to an already existing junction box in a drywall ceiling for a flush mounting. However, I was working on an open beam basement ceiling without a junction box. I also wanted to have access to their color change switch (see photo attached) which is mounted on the backside of the ceiling unit which would be impossible to reach if flush mounted to a drywall ceiling.

          This Feit Electric ceiling light does deliver an outstanding amount of usable light (see photo attached), but it was difficult to mount per their instructions. They assume you are replacing an existing light to an already existing junction box in a drywall ceiling for a flush mounting. However, I was working on an open beam basement ceiling without a junction box. I also wanted to have access to their color change switch (see photo attached) which is mounted on the backside of the ceiling unit which would be impossible to reach if flush mounted to a drywall ceiling. Note, you can toggle through the colors with a wall switch after flush mounting it, but that was not what I wanted in this application. Bottom line is, the switch should be on a side you can see once the light is mounted
          So I mounted their mounting plate to a pine board a bit shorter than the 48-inch light unit and screwed it to two opposing ceiling joists over my work table. I used a hole-saw to the pine board to allow for the wiring connections. That allows me to reach up and slide the color switch quite easily when I want to change the light’s intensity as I can reach the backside of the light unit with my fingers.
          I found that the swing arm pair design (see other two photos attached) used to suspend the light from the mounting plate did not function as directed in the instructions because they were too short to allow the internal male/female brackets to engage and secure the light unit flush with my mounting board as I swung it to the side and upwards and then back sideways as directed. After trying this per the instructions several times, and in the process cutting a gash across the back of three fingers because of the bracket/light unit’s sharp metal edges, I disengaged the swing arms and that allowed me to successfully flush mount it securely on the first try. The other thing I did different was to disconnect their internal support wire because it kept bowing and getting in the way on the bracket engagement with the light unit.

          Pros: Looks Great, Very Bright
          Cons: too small a font in the instructions.

          A great bundle that offers our one and only original Speed Square and the Big 12 Square. Both are constructed of heavy gauge aluminum and made to last. These are essential items for any carpenters toolbox.

          Swanson Speed Square and Big 12 Bundle
          It’s hard to believe that after doing all forms of DIY carpentry over the last 50+ years, I finally discovered the utility of the Swanson Speed Square. And besides their ability to act as a try square, miter square, protractor, and line scriber, my favorite is its use the 12-incher as a power hand saw guide, especially on hard to keep square 2x4’s end-cuts (see attached photos). I clamp a piece of scrap to act as “parallel standoff” from the 2x4 for the Swanson Square’s integral “fence” to give my saw a true running start on end cuts. I prefer this orientation as the integral fence edge resists the force forward making the cut. However, the square can

I prefer this orientation as the integral fence edge resists the force forward making the cut. However, the square can be reversed if that’s what one prefers, and then no scrap or clamp is required.
          The smaller 7 inch square I found handy for inside work with baseboard and other moldings. Altogether, high quality aluminum tools with clear easy to read and use markings.

          ProFlex Large Black Reinforced Utility Work Gloves
          These Ergodyne ProFlex 810 Reinforced Utility Gloves became my favorite go-to gloves the first day I tried them on. First, they fit my “normal large” hand perfectly. Secondly, for being suede reinforced, they have all the flex and feel you need (see photos attached). And the breathable mesh works well in the Summer sun and heat to keep my hands cool and dry.
          I also have a preference for their slightly longer cuff (see photo attached), because it better protects my wrist compared to my other work gloves. And the Velcro straps positively retained their tension, are easily adjusted and are no hassle in loosening.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, great fit

It’s also not the sort of pump that you would leave plugged-in all time, but it does have a walk-away feature auto shutoff.
          One thing I really liked, over other pumps I have owned, are the Wayne’s two brass garden hose fittings (See third photo). Usually such pumps have just molded plastic male fittings, but solid brass is much more a sign of quality and durability. Wayne’s side discharge option is also a great feature that will find uses other than my deep sink issue.
