          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.

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

          Used this to make quick work of a live-edge slab of pecan. The slab itself is very young, but I wanted to make sure I removed the bark before setting it aside to dry. Ran out to the store and came home with this. Using my corded (cordless just wasn't enough power) drill this took me about 35 minutes to both sides of a 9 foot slab. Be very sure you wear eye protection. Even a full face shield as you will get metal bits flying off along with dust. better safe than sorry. Works well for my use. Didn't use it on anything else.

          New bedroom floor really makes the room pop. Decided to move away from wood brown colors and go with an aged wood look. The Disher Oak is great because its a light grey wood look is not too dark. In fact it brightens the room compared to the old floor.
          Install was straight forward, but I've done a number of click together floors. I found the 'click' functionality of this flooring to be sub-par. It works but its not the strongest click system. I found I needed to do a lot of work to get the edges to lock in place, which was very frustrating. Also noticed a few spots along the edges where extra finishing was clumped.
