          Smart bulb, Edison style LED dimmable. But not smokey glass, it is clear glass. This bulb will connect to your wifi via the Greeni application on your iOS or android phone. When you first plug it in, it will constantly blink at you. So have your app prepared. Once you get it recognized in the app it is easy to use and you can link it to things like Alexa or Google if you use those. The app itself is easy to use, and wasn't overly burdensome (though I dislike having an app for every smart device - this is not Greeni's fault).

          Smart bulb, Edison style LED dimmable. But not smokey glass, it is clear glass. This bulb will connect to your wifi via the Greeni application on your iOS or android phone.

The app itself is easy to use, and wasn't overly burdensome (though I dislike having an app for every smart device - this is not Greeni's fault). What is a problem of the light, is even though it was well protected the light arrived with glue on the glass. Stuff I can't get off. If this wasn't a clear color Edison style light, it wouldn't be an issue but you are highlighting the look, which is detracted from because of the glue. (This is why I removed 1/2 star).
          Another thing to note, the picture on the website makes it look like the lightbulb is 'smokey'. Which it is NOT. Be very clear, this is a clear bulb and not smokey. (another ½ star removed).
          The light it makes is good with no flickering. Its nice to control via voice. One thing you must remember is that the light this bulb is plugged into must always be 'on'. So the wifi is drawing power so the app can turn the light on. Read Less

          A strong beast. I hate the individually packaged hex keys. For the longest time I had a drawer with about 20-30 of them sitting and collecting dust. Enter this folding hex key set. Its a beast and replaces that drawer with these imperial hex key options. Its sizable, about 6" long, meaning you can get some torque on them. Its also well built, meaning you don't feel like it will give under pressure when using it. (I purchased a cheaper set earlier and they broke on me... do yourself a favor and get something more substantial like this - it will be helpful when you are working on things like a garbage disposal).

          The metal they use is strong, I've not had issues with it deforming, even the smaller sizes. Glad to have this in my toolbox. And if you have a drawer full of these hex keys, consider this a great upgrade. Makes life easier and more organized. Read Less

          The MILWAUKEE 8 m/26 ft. Compact Magnetic Tape Measure has up to 9 ft. of standout and a magnet that easily adheres to EMT and steel studs for ease of use. Built with nylon blade protection and a 5-point reinforced frame, this measuring tape is wear and impact resistant. For increased productivity on the job site, the tape measure features double sided printing with blue print scale allowing users to easily read and transfer measurements. The magnetic tip tape measure also features a finger stop, which protects fingers and gives control during blade retraction.

          Innovation in the tape measure game; nice. I was in the need for a new tape measure because I finally lost the one I keep upstairs. Anyways, I found this one that has a few nice features. First, imperial and metric. Thats a positive for me, I do a lot of work in metric day in and day out so it is easier. Next, the magnetic foot. Obviously not going to be used everywhere, but when you have a corner that typically has a metal edge behind the paint this can be helpful when trying to get a good measurement.

Some of the other noticeable smaller features that are great; measurements on both the top and bottom of the tape - and there is a little cut out on the bottom of the tape body where it reels in so you can use your finger to slow/stop the tape. I find this helpful when making quick measurements and I don't want to lock with the thumb-lock. Only downside is its a bit wide in the hand - but that's what you get when you have a 1" wide tape.

          Lots of bite to hold things to the wall. This shelf screw kit is designed to be drilled directly into studs. You will need to drill a pilot hole, the screws themselves are very wide. Drilling a pilot hole will also reduce the chance of stripping the screw. While the head is not soft, if your drill bounces you will end up stripping the head. It happens but would take some real effort to occur. I used these to hold up some shelves in my garage, found with my first screw I didn't use a large enough bit to pre-drill so I did strip the head a little, but the rest went in perfect when I went the next size up.

          The Husky Paper Towel Holder is a great way to conveniently mount shop towels to pegboard walls. The Paper Towel holder is versatile and works in both vertical and horizontal positions. Adjustable quick release design lets you relocate the holder on pegboard as needed. Holder will accommodate most sizes of paper towel rolls.

          Works nicely on 2 out of 3 of my pegboards. Thought this was a great idea to add to my garage. Specifically I am using it on a wheeled Husky cart that I like to do home-brewing on. I have a role of shop towels on it and its sturdy enough for me to just yank on. The cart I am using it on has a metal pegboard that I have this connected to.
          When I tried it on a particle board pegboard I picked up ages ago, it worked great. A 3rd pegboard I tried that I had in the garage had holes that were too small. I probably could have forced it or made the holes bigger but decided it wasn't going to live there, so I didn't want to make the changes.

          The 2 ends have grey tabs that you squeeze in and this makes the outside pegs tilt inwards. When released they expand outwards and they have little notches that let them grab hold of the pegboard to secure it. They do have some play on the wall. Its not perfect, but that would be impossible because every pegboard is slightly different. But the key is it holds up to stresses put on it. I can pull hard on the towels and not have it or the towels pop off. Read Less

          The Home Decorators Collection Bachton 60 in. LED Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan will bring both style and air movement to any room or area. This fan uses DC motor that provides better air movement, more speeds (9), energy efficiency, and the reverse function can be controlled by the included remote control. The blades are actually plastic but have a very deep espresso finish that appears like real wood. The light kit is also very energy efficient with its 14-Watt Samsung LED light module that has a life span of 50,000 hours.

          Answer: 
          Yes - there is a switch on the control panel to turn the oven light on and off.
          Note the oven light does not automatically turn on when you open the oven door like a fridge might, instead you have to push the oven light button on the control panel.
