          Overall a nice fitting set of gloves. They contour and stretch with the hand. This is very helpful when needing finer degrees of dexterity. I have used these with some woodworking and they work well there. For mechanical work the padding is nice but if you are working with small connections or bolts there is not enough fine dexterity to be helpful. I end up taking them off when I need to work a small bolt with my fingers. Last thing to mention, it says the gloves are “touchscreen friendly”; no. They are not. If lucky, you can get a touch or swipe registered with the pointing finger. No other fingers work at all.

          Saw these and decided to use them to help keep a sweet almond verbena bush in bounds (and keep the dog off of it). I already had 3 stakes in the ground with some twine around them but the twine was aging badly. grabbed these to replace the twine. They are basically a U track with a plastic lock. You lift up on it to expand - just don't go too far or it will slide off the end of the track and you will have to slide them back together again. (Trust me, I have done this 3 times... 3 to a pack and all.)
          Only reason I didn't give them 5 stars; the end clips are not truly universal. I'm using Bamboo which are way smaller than the end clips. In the end I used plant tape to secure the ends, but Read More

          Gorgeous slide in oven replacing a standard oven with ease. Pleased with this oven after being a little concerned purchasing an oven a few weeks before Thanksgiving. But it all turned out great. I have put this oven through many paces and it has hit each task put towards it. Including cooking thanksgiving, cooking for guests and re-heating thanksgiving dinner numerous times.
          Lots of space. Warms up well. The alert chime that it has pre-heated is a little quiet. It does come with a cast iron skillet that goes on top of the center rack.

Including cooking thanksgiving, cooking for guests and re-heating thanksgiving dinner numerous times.
          Lots of space. Warms up well. The alert chime that it has pre-heated is a little quiet. It does come with a cast iron skillet that goes on top of the center rack. I was really interested in the convection functionality as it can help speed up cooking or allow for crisper items. Something I learned when I received it, it has wifi connectivity. If you are running Samsung Smart Things at home you can connect the range to this and allows for remote monitoring. You also get alerts when the oven is up to temperature or turned off. You can send desired cooking settings to the oven but someone has to push the button. I honestly didn't know how helpful this would be. But I have found the preheat finished alert on my phone to be very helpful.
          Another surprise is the oven uses active air movement even when not in 'convection' mode. I realized the convection setting would use a fan. But where ovens typically have a passive vent to move air in, this one seems to use an active fan all the time. Keep that in mind as its something that could break and it makes noise. (See my video for an example). Not sure if that's just standard with a convection oven or slide in. As both are new to me.
          At the end of the day its a really great well constructed oven. I am extremely pleased with it. The buttons on the front are actually touch screen, not 'hidden buttons behind plastic' like other ovens. The black stainless does resist finger prints and other stains. I find if I get grease on it, it wipes off in a matter of seconds. Read Less

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Grabbed this brooder lamp less for raising chicks or as a warming light for an amphibian - but to provide me with light and some warmth while working in my garage during the winter. The idea was I would move it between my workshop desks to provide a spotlight that gives off some heat so I can stay warm under it. So the porcelain socket works great. As does the metal reflector and protector shield.
          Why did I ultimately only give it 2 out of 5 stars? It fails to stay put. There are 2 key adjustments on the leg on the back. 1) the wing nut to tighten down where the light head shines. Try as I might, it was still too loose (after using vice grips) and would flop around. 2) the clamp - its Read More

Try as I might, it was still too loose (after using vice grips) and would flop around. 2) the clamp - its designed with a bulge to go around a bar, but if you try to use it on a bar that is not rough it will fall over. I could connect it to a 1x4, but the clamp doesn't open large enough to work with a 2x4.
          It does come with a D-ring on the back of the lamp; so if you plan to hang the light from a chain - this will work well. Last comment, there is no switch on the cable so its turned on/off at the plug (not a reason to drop a star, but should be noted for those looking). Read Less

          Strong hook that is extremely easy to install tightly to the roof. I am very impressed with this ceiling hook. I'm currently using it to hold my hummingbird feeder off my back porch. Its screwed into some hardi-board (which required pre-drilling a pilot hole since its cement). But it was extremely easy to install and if I wanted to migrate it around it would also be an easy task.
          It comes with the hook, a special screw and a drywall anchor. You may not need the drywall anchor if not installing in drywall but it comes with what you need. The hook itself is made of metal, painted white. The screw is coated for outdoor use. The 'smarts' of the hook is that it latches over the special screw. Read More

The hook itself is made of metal, painted white. The screw is coated for outdoor use. The 'smarts' of the hook is that it latches over the special screw. Basically you push the open end of the hook towards the base. Its on a metal axel with spring mounted ball bearings to lock it in the regular use position. Once you have changed the angle of the hook you can now connect it to the special screw. It just slides over top, you then push the hook back to its normal position and it grabs hold of the screw. My humming bird feeder does swing in the breeze and this has not been a problem for the hook. Read Less

          Answer: 
          If you mean the valve at the water temp area, or sometimes the pull up item on the bath spicket. No.
          The only 'valve' is on the base of the shower head which directs water to the handheld head, the big head or both. See picture.

          Answer: 
          The LEDs are built into the light sconce so if they or the driver goes, you probably have to replace the entire sconce. It's actually a glued down ring of LED chips and a big driver on the back. Most NuTone fan lights seem to use the same connector. Or you probably could retrofit in a light if you think it would be safe in a damp environment.

          Answer: 
          You would need to have a separate power wire run to the fan housing following your areas power code, but it is possible because inside the power connection box in the fan, the light and fan plug into different wires. And you connect the wires to the power wires and switches you desire.
