          The MILWAUKEE large M12 Heated AXIS Layering System with HYDROBREAK Rain Shell s are designed to protect users from the cold and rainy weather conditions on the job site. Powered by M12 REDLITHIUM Battery Technology, the AXIS heated work jacket use carbon fiber heating elements to create and distribute heat to the chest, back and shoulders. A one-touch LED controller heats up the battery heated jacket to three heat settings, creating a comfortable heat for any environment or weather. The heated jacket has a new Quick-Heat function that allows users to feel heat three times faster than previous Milwaukee jackets and market competitors. Like all other Milwaukee products, these jackets are built strong to last long with new AXIS Ripstop Polyester providing a lightweight, compressible design that can be used as an inner layer or mid-layer jacket and protects users from wind and water to survive the elements. The HYDROBREAK Rain Shell combats against rain and snow conditions. The 2.5 layer rain shell is designed with ripstop polyester for tear and abrasion resistance and a polyurethane laminate to keep users dry all day. The heated coats are available in gray. These s come with the M12 battery heated jacket and HYDROBREAK rain shell, one M12 REDLITHIUM CP2.0 battery and an M12 compact charger and power source. Gender: male. Age Group: adult.

          Get that just out of the dryer warmth for hours. Roomy, two layer jacket "system" that will keep you warm and dry. Unlike some other shell/jackets I have had, this one isn't encumbered with a bunch of snaps or zippers to futz with when you put the waterproof outer layer. When you have the quilted jacket on, the waterproof shell easily slips on over it without gymnastics.
          The jacket is light in weight so it's comfortable to wear for long periods. Even with both layers on with a safety vest, it's still very easy to move around.
          The battery goes into a zippered "pocket' in back, about where your left kidney is. The presence of the battery takes a while to get used to since it feels like Read More

          The battery goes into a zippered "pocket' in back, about where your left kidney is. The presence of the battery takes a while to get used to since it feels like you have a screwdriver in your back pocket and the handle is pressing against your back.
          Milwaukee includes a USB charger to top off the 12 V battery. This takes 4+ hours to charge the battery fully from dead. You can still use your regular Milwaukee battery charger for much faster results.
          The jacket really makes the shoulder season a lot more comfortable. Read Less

          These bits hold up really well with impact or drill/driver. I ran about 25 3 1/2 inch deck screws with the free bit that came with the screws and another 25 with a Milwaukee bit. You can see in the photo the difference in wear with the two bits. The Milwaukee one still looks new while the free one it pretty beat up.
          If you have to press the "undo" button and remove a screw, make sure you have the bit fully seated or you'll strip the head since these bits have pretty sharp teeth.
          Pros: Durable, Long-Lasting

          The GearWrench 13-Piece SAE XL Gearbox Double Box Ratcheting Wrench Set features a full chrome polish finish for durability and corrosion resistance. Ratcheting box end increases productivity while reducing hand fatigue. The box end utilizes Surface Drive technology which provides off-corner loading for better grip and reduced fastener rounding.

          Extra leverage without having to stick a pipe on the end. I've bent smaller wrenches when I "enhance" the length this way so it's nice to have longer wrenches.
          In the picture below, I show a standard 9/16" box wrench side-by-side with the XL Gearwrench and the Gearwrench is 50% longer. This makes it lot easier to get a fastener turning without popping all the veins out on your neck. In a tight area, the ratcheting action makes these worth their weight in gold.
          This very complete set is in a blow-molded case that would fit nicely in a large toolchest drawer. It has those weird tabs on one end that make it look like you could hang it up, but they're too far offset for that.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Strong

          This is a nice replacement for my power strip wrapped up in plastic shopping bags (to make it "waterproof") that I've been using forever. For LED lights only, it lets you plug in up to 60 Watts per outlet. The box says "Up to 8,000 LEDS!" but you need to check with your own light strings' power needs so you don't overload the Wizard.
          Incredibly easy to set up with one button to choose the "light show" from steady to chasing, sparkling, etc. I'm boring and prefer the steady on setting. A second button lets you choose 4, 6, or 8 hours on so the Wizard can flip on the lights for you each night.

          Heavy duty feel on a really handy sprayer. My wrists no longer protest when using non-aerosol cleaning products. To get the feel of using this, I filled it with water & pumped it up about 20 pumps. It would easily spray four ounces before fizzling out. The nozzle is easy to adjust with just a quick turn.
          Although it's very easy to pump, I found it would require a lot of pumping when using a popular mildew cleaner. When cleaning a 3'x4' shower stall, I would spray one or two rows of tile before it would need pumping up again. Still, this was far less demanding than churning away at the trigger of the regular bathroom cleaner spray bottle.

          This multi-use scaffold is great for any job that requires working at heights. It can be used as 1- a scaffolding unit. The deck allows for a stable footing and a large standing space of 29 in. x72 in. It also transforms as 2- a Workbench on casters to install miter saws or table saws on the specially designed side of the platform. The included rails and attachment brackets can be adjusted to suite any brand of saw. The workbench can also be easily moved around the jobsite, then locked in place for stability. After the work is done, the unit can also be used as 3- a storage unit for the garage. The included storage shelf includes a ventilated metal grid and side braces that can be adjusted to any rung height along the ladder sides. Finally you can use the unit as 4- a cart to move your supplies around or to and from your truck to the jobsite.
