          I have used these screws in the past about a million times. They are really nice to work with. The one comment I will make is that you should not use them on composite decking as I had a hard time trying to counter sink them. I know these are wood screws but I thought I could get away with them because they are within my budget, but they didn't cut it. So I had the extra step of pre-drill and countersink to use them. But these are great for WOOD!!!

          I am very happy with the composite decking so far.It was nice putting it down, although the ends were not factory 90*s which was OK with me because I was cutting them to fall on my double joists (for a Hot tub) anyway, and the walls are not exactly 90*s either. The deck measures 17ft. by 15 ft. and I'm about halfway done. Working alone. One thing I will say is that they are extremely heavy and I had to get them up to the second floor so that was awful. I kinda made a ramp out of the old decking material (Cedar from 1986) that has seen better days, and used a rope to pull them up along this ramp. I'm still sore from that. But it does look very nice.

I'll try to take a few pictures of what's finished. Probably the video of pulling them up would have been better, very comical, I should have had some help! And don't judge because I alternated the wood grain!! We do like it. I would recommend to others even with the ends out of square it's just a small step to get them right and they measure an eighth inch or so long, so if you need exactly 16 footers you will be OK with these.. Also I almost forgot they are very slippery but with a large hot tub on this deck we won't be doing a whole lotta walking around on it. Read Less

          The Commercial Electric Integrated LED 2 ft. x 4 ft. LED Center Basket Troffer produces a gentle and uniform illumination using state of the art energy efficient lighting. The low-profile troffer is constructed from high quality aluminum and superior materials offering an enduring performance against light degradation. These integrated LED troffers are designed to install like a traditional troffer, which makes replacing existing fixtures very simple. Using only 40-watts of energy, each LED troffer produces 4000 lumens, which is equivalent to a 64W traditional troffer. Rated to last for 50,000 hours of use, these units will not need to be replaced for a long time. Each unit is equipped with a color temperature switch so you can choose the color temperature that suits your needs prior to installation. These integrated LED center basket troffers are DLC Listed to qualify for commercial lighting rebates and special incentives in certain areas.

          This is a great new light fixture. These LED are very bright. I'm planning on replacing one of the lights in my garage with this one. I'm going to affix it to the 10ft. ceiling in there where I need more light. I have pig-tailed it right now so you can see how bright it is and how it lights up the garage. I took a few pics of the light I'm going to replace and the new light while it is on and then again when it's off. You can really see a great difference it makes in there. When I get a chance I will permanently secure it to the ceiling. I would recommend this to others.

          Unlighted door chime button - 2.75 in. high, white, 20-pack - use with doorbell chimes, bells and door buzzers. Works great with as a doorbell button replacement. Please note: a diode is needed (not included) if you are using a digital chime (plays a melody; has a speaker for the sound). A diode is not needed is you are using a mechanical doorbell chime (2-note sound; has a small mallet hitting a metal bar for the sound). Does not include doorbell wire warning: this product may expose you to chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm.

          Looks nice and worked fine. Doorbell rings again as I changed a broken one. I have several more to replace and these will fit the bill. Most of the doors that get a replacement are trimmed in white vinyl so these do match. Happy with it, and I would recommend to others for a new or a replacement door bell. This is not a lighted one but i didn't need that.

          This is a very bright LED Troffer fixture. It is a commercial light so I am using it in my shed which doubles as a small work shop. I did not hook up the Dimmable feature as I will not be using it that way,. This light comes in 2 different color temperature settings you can switch from 3500K to 4000K just by using the switch on the back. I also am not setting this up in the ceiling which you are supposed to do and that is what it is meant for. My shop is very small and right now my ceiling space is just about all used up.

I have one corner where I use a band saw and a drill press and desperately need more light there so I am attaching this light to sit on a shelf that I almost never use. Like I said at the start this is a very bright light and will do the job I need. I would recommend this to others. I hope the pictures do it justice below but I don't know why you see stripes in one of the pictures but they are not there in person. Read Less

          Rejuvenate the wood-cutting ability of your table saw or miter saw with the 10 in. Fine Finish saw blade from Avanti. Constructed with carbide-reinforced steel, this blade consists 60 sharp teeth to cleanly slice through MDF, hardwood, softwood, plywood and molding. Four expansion slots help the blade expand and contract during use, resulting in minimal vibration and straight cuts.

          Answer: 
          That blade should be fine for Laminate if you do get some tear out you can use painters tape on your cut line and it will help some. Of course there are blades that have more teeth and smaller teeth for cutting plastics and acrylic but you should be fine with this 60 tooth blade.
