          Alpine Industries Microfiber Window Combo 2-in-1 Professional Squeegee and Window Scrubber is a great tool that combines your squeegee and microfiber scrubber to clean and dry your windows without having to switch attachments. Professional grade microfiber wets and cleans your window while the 14 in. high quality rubber squeegee blade removes excess water to dry your windows streak-free in no time. You can attach the squeegee and window scrubber combo to a telescopic pole (sold separately) to extend your reach.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Pros:
          Combines squeegee and scrubber in one tool, 14 inch width
          Cons:
          Does not fit standard extension poles, hard to clean without streaking
          The Alpine microfiber window cleaner combines two tools into one by mounting a microfiber scrubber on the other side of the squeegee. This what the manufacturer says: “This great tool combines a squeegee and microfiber scrubber in one convenient device, allowing you to clean and dry your windows without needing to switch attachments for faster, more efficient cleaning. Using professional-grade microfiber and the highest quality rubber, the Alpine cleans windows quickly and effectively with streak-free results.”

Using professional-grade microfiber and the highest quality rubber, the Alpine cleans windows quickly and effectively with streak-free results.”
          In reality there are two main drawbacks: One, the recessed tread in the handle prevents the unit from mounting on a standard extension pole. This renders the unit useless for cleaning tall windows. Why this design? Two, the promise of a streak-free cleaning does not hold out. Even careful squeeging and rubbing with the scrubber leaves streaks that need to be removed with a dry cloth or newspaper. This defeats the purpose of the tool—doing away with switching tools. At best, even if it did work, the micro-fiber cloth needs to be removed and squeezed dry from time to time. This system is not an effective replacement for a standard squeegee, scrubber, and newspaper.

          Remember when you could drill through any material. The WEN 29-piece Gold Oxide Drill Bits provide variety and versatility for all your drilling needs. Gold oxide finish maximizes the lifespan of your bits by fighting rust, corrosion and heat damage. The 135 split points limit slips and walking during operation. Sizes range from 1/16 in. to 3/8 in. of an inch in 1/64 in. increments. The round shank creates a sturdy grip for drill chucks, allowing you to make clean holes in metals, woods, plastics and more. Includes a compact carrying case for convenient storage and transport. Remember when you had the exact drill bit for the job. Remember WEN.

Once tightened, however, there was no slippage. In a standing drill, the bits worked just fine without slipping. The manufacturer claims that the bits will work on wood, metal, and plastic. The bits were tested on wood only but the expectation is that they will work just fine on the other materials as well.

          These handy little pruning snips are perfect for trimming small plants like those in hanging baskets or small pots. They can be used to trim and deadhead flowers and small bushes, but not applicable for cutting large woody stems. Although I don’t have any, I would think the snips would be perfect for trimming bonsai plants as well, since the snips are small and will fit into tight places. The blades are only 2 inches long, and curved, so they easily reach inside a small plant to trim leaves and stems (See picture). The blades are stainless steel and coated with titanium, which should keep them sharp and rust free. The snips would be a great craft tool as well. The blades easily cut through Read More

The blades are stainless steel and coated with titanium, which should keep them sharp and rust free. The snips would be a great craft tool as well. The blades easily cut through paper (see picture) and even thin plastic. That would make them good for model building and other crafts where small sharp cuts are needed. The blades are curved and very sharp. There is a sliding safety lock that can keep the blades closed and can be accessed on both sides of the snips. Since there is no guard for the snips, I just keep them in the package they came in. The snips fit easily into my small hands, and the handles are a soft comfortable non slip plastic. They are spring loaded and do not wear out my hands opening and closing. Highly recommended.

          At 5.3X3X0.6 inches this is a very compact Lithium ion battery jumper and power bank.

The unit comes with a micro USB cable as well as an automotive 12 volt adapter; both can be used to recharge the unit.

          For automotive jump starting, the unit is equipped with hefty automotive battery clamps and is also equipped with reverse polarity protection. This is obviously a very important feature. In the field, the unit was able to start a six cylinder sports car without any problems. Some users report failures in starting a car or recharging the unit as the unit becomes older. At this point, these shortcomings cannot be confirmed.
          As a bonus, the unit is equipped with a flash light. This feature is of obvious value when jump-starting a car at night. A light, cloth carrying case is a thoughtful addition.

          The Ryobi electric trimmer is a welcome change from gas powered models. The unit is quiet. At 74 db, it is about six times louder than a normal conversation and about 30 times quieter than a gas powered trimmer.

Trimmer, edger, and branch trimmer all worked fine with this power head. The unit comes with a replacement string that needs to be wound by hand onto the rotating head. Some users report that this is not an easy operation. Personally, I have not tried replacing the string, yet.
          Here are three negative observations. One, the safety switch could be designed better. As it is, anyone (including a child) can turn the unit on. Two, a single charge lasted about 25 minutes; this may not be enough for a large lawn. Three, the motor became quite warm, not enough to burn skin; but certainly very noticeable as the arm touched the motor head.
