          Works as a fire set-er-upper. If you have made a teepee fire before, this does a good job of making it easy to configure. Its about a foot square at the top and wider at the base, so it will be a big fire. It was bigger than I expected when I ordered it. While not a bad thing, I did add a picture of my shoe inside the base to help give some more dimensional understanding. There is also a hole in the middle of the top that really helps make the kindling get going super fast. Sort of a chimney action.
          Why not 5 stars. The welds and metal are rough and sharp. While you won't be handling it a bunch, I envision throwing it in my camper and bringing it camping. It will get dirty/dusty - but Read More

          Why not 5 stars. The welds and metal are rough and sharp. While you won't be handling it a bunch, I envision throwing it in my camper and bringing it camping. It will get dirty/dusty - but that's to be expected. I do wish it was collapsable. Again it comes back to my key use case, taking it camping where space is a premium. Taking up 1.5 cubic feet of volume is a lot. (Though I won't remove any stars for that - its working as intended). I did take it camping last weekend, and it made for an easy single match fire. Lots of space for small pieces of wood and paper down low and larger wood around the sides. Fire started right up. roasted hot dogs and marshmallows over it. After its first use, the metal has changed color but its still sturdy. There are some charred on marks from where food or sap hit the metal but its not rusted. Read Less

          Great for hanging doors - I initially picked this up to help me square up a pre-hung door. It really made that process easier vs trying to wedge items in. (Though I did add shims after I got the frame where I wanted it, having the air shim lets me get it to that point much faster). I also used it to help pop an old frame off the wall. I was able to get it into the gap between the wall and the door and used this to move it far enough it took the nails out mostly.
          It gets down thin enough, about ⅛", so it can fit in most spots and grows to about 1.5" wide. And the little button to let the air out works nicely when you want to drop it just a bit.

          If you do any degree of woodwork with power tools that accept a vacuum port - I suggest you grab one of these. The benefit is you don't have to clean your shop-vac filter. This separates 99% of the dust before it hits your vacuum. Personally I made a caddy with my Ridgid wet dry vacuum to make an all in one system that easily moves around my garage to different tools. You could make your own, and there are many options on the web for it, but honestly the fact that the kit comes with a small hose and 90 degree connector makes it slightly more cost effective to get this than make your own.

          Great diamond blade - I used it on a wet saw for cutting stone. Makes good clean cuts and lasts a good while. If you have done any work with stone, you know a good diamond blade is always needed. I've been mostly using it to cut capstones for my garden retaining walls. The Makita cuts fast. I've cut about 70 - 80 cuts of 8" long x 2" deep and only a little of the blade has diminished, maybe ⅛ - ¼ of an inch. (Sorry I didn't measure the diameter when I started).
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight

          I am extremely happy with this dishwasher. Its advertised as quiet, it actually is VERY quiet. Cleans my dishes very well and looks great. Downside, still doesn't put my dishes away. But it gets part way there by opening the door at the end of the cycle to aid in drying.
          This replaces an older Samsung StormWash that was doing very well, but we were doing some renovating in the kitchen so this changed. Anyways we went for the higher end model with 3 racks and quieter. The older one rated at 48dB was great. This at 42dB is crazy quiet. The sound of the air coming out of the vents for AC is louder than the dishwasher sometimes. Its quiet.

Anyways we went for the higher end model with 3 racks and quieter. The older one rated at 48dB was great. This at 42dB is crazy quiet. The sound of the air coming out of the vents for AC is louder than the dishwasher sometimes. Its quiet.
          The build of washer itself has insulation padding well attached on the outside top, sides and back - which compared to other brands, is a lot more and it helps deaden the sound. The inside is all stainless steel and hides any heater elements below / behind stainless. Also includes an easy to remove debris collector in case you need to clean it out.
          How does it clean? Well I have put it to the test. Dishes. Easy. Spotless. Stainless steel instant pot with burned on tomato sauce - put it on top of the storm wash spot and it cleaned it no problem. The dishwasher comes with a utensil caddy for the bottom row, but also offers the 3rd row for utensil cleaning. At this point I have removed the caddy and use the space for my dishes only and the 3rd row for just utensils and it also works very well. Including cleaning forks with hardened rice and such.
          Another nice touch - the front panel has 3 lights to tell you when its on in addition to the top timer which may be obscured by the counter top. This is nice; but you always know when this one is done as it pops the door open.
          As for the fingerprint resistant black stainless steel - it seems to ward off finger prints. If you have greasy hands, it will leave a mark but seems to wipe down easily.
          As you can tell, I have nothing but good things to say. I'm very pleased. Read Less

          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.
