          Now that Fall has arrived I have to spend a lot of time outside raking the leaves and doing yard work. These West Chester medium duty all purpose gloves are perfect for doing just that and more. With their padded palms, padded knuckles and their reinforced synthetic leather they are quite durable and very comfortable on the hand. The elastic around the wrist area I found to be perfect. It wan't too tight or to loose and I didn't have a problem with leaves or debris getting inside the glove.
          These gloves are very flexible and have a nice grip to them. I also love the fact that the fabric on them breathes quite well. I hate pulling off a pair of gloves to find your finger tips all Read More

It wan't too tight or to loose and I didn't have a problem with leaves or debris getting inside the glove.
          These gloves are very flexible and have a nice grip to them. I also love the fact that the fabric on them breathes quite well. I hate pulling off a pair of gloves to find your finger tips all shriveled up and looking like raisins. There is no rubber on these gloves so that won't be a problem at all.
          The one negative for me is that I have to pull off the gloves in order to access the icons on my phone or to take a call. I guess I'm spoiled but I really like my other gloves that have that little patch of material on the finger tip that allows me to use my phone with my gloves on. I know that won't be a big deal to a lot of people but it would be a nice feature to possibly add.
          The over all fit and finish on the gloves is great. All the sewing and stitching looks to be well done and I expect these gloves to hold up well. I usually wear a size large gloves and these fit just right in size large. I really like the bright neon yellow color of these gloves. When I take them off and set them somewhere they are easy to find again. All in all these are a great pair of gloves and I look forward to using them each time I put them on. Read Less

          I recently put together a tool bag for my wife's new job and the one thing we were missing was a quality razor (utility) knife. This Milwaukee fixed blade utility knife is perfect because you can take it apart with just your finger tips. My old fixed blade knife you had to dig out a large flat head screwdriver every time you wanted to change out the razor blade on it.
          This utility knife has a metal body with a over-molded grip that is quite comfortable in the hand. They added a lanyard hole on the end of it so you don't have to worry about losing it.

With the bright red color it is much easier to find when setting it down. My old silver colored one always kind of blended in to its background where this one really stands out.
          My wife said she has already used it multiple times to cut up some very large boxes in their new showroom and it works perfectly. I can see this razor knife being perfect for scoring/cutting sheetrock or for any other thing you might need it for. If you are looking for a quality razor knife I would definitely give this one a try. Milwaukee is known for making great tools and this one is no exception. Read Less

          Since PG&E has decided to periodically turn our power off in California due to their wildfire safety program I have been looking for alternative heating methods for our home. So far alone this year we have had our power shut off five different times. All five times we were left without any way to heat any portion of our home. It hasn't been too bad yet because Fall is just beginning but once Winter sets in we are going to have a problem.
          This Dewalt 12,000 BTU portable propane heater fits the bill perfectly for what I need. It it light enough that I can carry it with me from room to room or just set it in the area we are all hanging out in the most. With (2) 1 lb. propane tanks installed Read More
          Since PG&E has decided to periodically turn our power off in California due to their wildfire safety program I have been looking for alternative heating methods for our home. So far alone this year we have had our power shut off five different times. All five times we were left without any way to heat any portion of our home. It hasn't been too bad yet because Fall is just beginning but once Winter sets in we are going to have a problem.
          This Dewalt 12,000 BTU portable propane heater fits the bill perfectly for what I need. It it light enough that I can carry it with me from room to room or just set it in the area we are all hanging out in the most. With (2) 1 lb. propane tanks installed and a battery to run the fan it can provide hours and hours of nice warm heat. If things get real bad I can bring in my 5 gallon propane tank from my bbq and with my adaptor hose I can get even more run time. The one thing I love most about this heater is that it can be used indoors without hurting someone.
          One other reason I have always wanted a portable heater is so that I could still do projects in the garage all year around without freezing to death. My garage has lots of great lighting and all my tools are all ready to be used but sometimes it gets so cold your hands don't want to work for you. Especially if you are trying to do something intricate. With this heater hooked to one of my 20 gallon propane tanks along with the adaptor hose it will probably last me the whole winter in there.
          The Dewalt engineers thought of everything when they designed this heater. It has a light built into the handle, it has 3-USB ports for charging personal electronics and accessories, it has a built in fan to help push the heat throughout the area you are in and it comes with an electronic ignition so you don't have to keep pushing the igniter button over and over trying to get it to light. With the adjustable knob you can dial the heat up or down to make it just right.
          My wife just got a new job working in a large showroom and she is already threatening to take this to work so she can use it by her desk or anywhere she is in the showroom to keep herself warm. With the real large windows and the concrete floor she was already worrying about how she was going to keep her feet warm during the Fall and Winter months but now she doesn't have to worry about it at all. We can get a half dozen of the 1 lb. propane bottles and she will be good to go for quite a while.
          If you are looking for a portable heater that can be used both indoors and outdoors from a brand you know and trust I would definitely give this portable heater from Dewalt a try. Just beware that it doesn't come with a battery or charger so you will need to purchase them seperately if you don't already have them. I'm looking forward to getting years and years of use out of this heater and with Fall and Winter rapidly approaching I will be using it quite a bit. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, very portable, puts out a lot of heat with the fan

          As my cars are getting older I find myself working on them more and more in order to try and save the cost of hiring a mechanic. Having the right tool set to do this makes all the difference in the world. This Milwaukee metric 1/2 in. drive tool set fits the bill perfectly. This set comes with (15) regular sockets, (10) deep well sockets, (2) extensions and the ratchet.
          When I first took this set out of the shipping box I couldn't believe how heavy it was. The sheer weight of this set makes you feel like you are getting a premium tool set to work with.

This set comes with (15) regular sockets, (10) deep well sockets, (2) extensions and the ratchet.
          When I first took this set out of the shipping box I couldn't believe how heavy it was. The sheer weight of this set makes you feel like you are getting a premium tool set to work with. The case is nice and thick with a removable tray you can just lift out and put in the drawer of your roll around tool chest. The latches on the front of the tool case have a very distinctive sound when they are latched. With this tool case you will never have to worry about it falling open while carrying it and dropping all the contents on the ground. This tool case is the best I have ever seen. One other thing I liked is that they labeled one side of the case with "metric" so should you have both the "SAE" set or the "Metric" set side by side on a shelf you could tell one tool set from another.
          All the sockets are laser engraved with very large numbers to make them super easy to read. Each socket also has four flat sides on them. This does two things. (1) it makes them to where they won't roll off the work bench or roll under the car should you lay one down next to you, (2) it allows you to use a very large wrench on the square surface of the socket should you need to in a tight space or at an awkward angle.
          All the pieces in the tool set come with a bright chrome finish which gives them a very distinctive look and makes them much easier to wipe the grease and grime off of them with a rag. There is an included small card in the case stating their lifetime guarantee along with the instructions for how to utilize the warranty should you need to. For some reason when I saw this it made me feel good to know that they were making it so easy to get help should you need it and not trying to hide it.
          All in all this is the perfect metric tool set for me. This is one of those tool sets that you would be able to hand down to the next generation it is so well made. My son is getting to the age where he is starting to work on things and I can see this set becoming his one day (hopefully not to soon ;o). The Milwaukee engineers did a great job of making this whole tool set. From the case to the latches to the removable tray it is like they thought of every single thing they could to make this set perfect and they nailed it. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy, large laser engraved numbers, square sides on sockets won't roll around

          If you are a serious gamer, you need an ergonomic office chair to keep up with the demands of your marathon gaming sessions. Your couch may feel comfortable, but you need adequate seating while holding the controller for hours at a time. This high back racing style game chair will outperform your couch with healthier benefits. The ergonomic design of this racing chair offers generous padding with a wing style back to cradle your torso. The padded arms provide a comfortable resting position while holding your controller and relieve pressure off your shoulder and neck. If you're playing on your computer and want to get closer to the action the arms flip backward to pull yourself underneath the desk without having to adjust the seat height. The tilt lock mechanism underneath the seat locks in an upright position when you no longer want to lean and rock back. To be considered a true gamer you need a dedicated gaming chair to take your gaming to new heights, whether you have followers who watch you on a streaming service or like to interact with other gamers online. Color: Gray.

          We have been needing an "official" gaming chair for years but we have been using an old hand me down recliner for some unknown reason. When I set this gaming chair up in the living room for the first time my son immediately sat down in it and claimed it as his own.
          This Carnegy Avenue gaming chair is perfect for gaming. You can raise and lower the height of the chair so your feet rest comfortably on the floor. You can flip both of the arms of the chair up and out of the way if you want to rest the controller on your lap while playing. You can flip both of the arms of the chair back down so you can rest your forearms on them to comfortably play that way (the chair arms are very nicely Read More
          We have been needing an "official" gaming chair for years but we have been using an old hand me down recliner for some unknown reason. When I set this gaming chair up in the living room for the first time my son immediately sat down in it and claimed it as his own.
          This Carnegy Avenue gaming chair is perfect for gaming. You can raise and lower the height of the chair so your feet rest comfortably on the floor. You can flip both of the arms of the chair up and out of the way if you want to rest the controller on your lap while playing. You can flip both of the arms of the chair back down so you can rest your forearms on them to comfortably play that way (the chair arms are very nicely padded).
          The padding on the chair seat and seat back is very thick and you kind of feel like you are sinking down into it which is great for those long gaming sessions. Your back is fully supported from top to bottom and you don't have that gap at your lower back area that is unsupported. I didn't realize it at first (since I didn't read the directions) but you can push in or pull out on the arm you use to raise and lower the seat height to allow the chair to fully recline and rock back and forth like a rocking chair.
          Since this chair is covered in black leather with mesh gray inserts your body doesn't sweat when sitting in it for long periods of time. The mesh really does a great job of allowing your body to breathe. The overall comfort of this gaming chair is fantastic.
          This chair does come in pieces and it took me about 30 minutes to put it together using the supplied Allen wrench. About half way through the assembly process I decided to get a 5 mm Allen wrench socket driver out and use it and it went way faster. I could have probably put it together in 15 or 20 minutes if I had done this in the very beginning.
          The supplied directions are very simplified but they work. They show 4 separate pictures with the identifying items on them and you just use the supplied Allen wrench to put them all together. Once complete you just set the upper half on top of the lower half and you are done.
          I think this gaming chair is designed more for a PC gamer then a Xbox or Playstation gamer but to be honest it would work perfectly either way. In our home we have several separate gaming setups but having this gaming chair takes it to a whole new level of comfort and style. Now that we have been utilizing this in our living room I can't picture going back to our old recliner for gaming. Also we can now sit a lot closer to the TV so you can be more fully immersed in the action.
          If you are looking for a very comfortable, fantastic looking and fully adjustable gaming chair I would definitely give this one here a try. You will be very happy you did. There is one down side though and that is I don't get to play Xbox as much anymore because I can't get my son out of the chair ;o)
          I don't know if the manufacturer will ever read this review or not but if you do it would be very cool to have a matching foot stool that matched the chair. That would make the whole setup just that much more comfortable and better in my book and really take the comfort level over the top. Read Less
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Perfect Size, Rich Looking, Sturdy, Vibrant Color, Well Made

          It doesn't state on the box that it is oven safe. I would assume not.

          Answer: 
          I can't see using this as a fogger for events. It puts out more of a mist then a fog even though it's called a fogger. There is no way to lock the trigger on either unless you zip tied it in the "on" position. I would personally be afraid of destroying the fogger if you were running it non stop also. I don't know how long the little pump inside would last running non stop.

          Answer: 
          I could see using this under a house to spray the foundation with no problems. I would want to wear protective clothing and a full face respirator but I would definitely do it. I had termites under my last house and I remember being under there trying to pump up a sprayer in the crawl space and it wasn't fun.

          Answer: 
          I have the iPhone 7+ and it works perfectly. I can't fathom why it won't work with the iPhone 6. As long as you have the Ring App on your phone and decent Wi-Fi connection to the camera there shouldn't be any problems at all.
