          The Milwaukee 40 ft. W Blade Tape Measures have the longest, straightest standout in the industry giving users up to 14 ft. of standout for extended reach and efficiency on the jobsite. The straight standout is highly usable and makes it easier to measure long distances alone. The tape measures are wear and impact-resistant with nylon bond blade protection and an additional anti-tear coating on the first 6 of the blade, reducing tape tear. Built to withstand the jobsite, the measuring tapes are constructed with a 5-point reinforced frame for impact resistance.

          Over the years I have accumulated a few tape measure's. I have to say this Milwaukee 40 ft. tape measure beats them all hands down. For one I love the fact that it is 40 ft. long. There has been several times over the years when measuring something that the tape is just not long enough. I don't think I will be having that problem with a 40 ft. tape.
          The other thing I love is the size of the numbering. As my eyes get older I find myself squinting to read the tape measure. Since this tape is 1.3 in. wide you don't have to squint. I also like the fact that they put a architectural scale on the back of the tape along with the normal measurements instead of just leaving it blank.

I also like the fact that they put a architectural scale on the back of the tape along with the normal measurements instead of just leaving it blank.
          Another great feature is the finger stop on the bottom of the tape measure. You can now extend the tape and hold it in place with just your finger vs. having to push down the tape lock each time. Of all the features on this tape this is my favorite feature and it's funny to think no one has thought of this before (that I know of). Speaking of the tape lock this one actually works. It may just be because its new but it seems like over time you will engage the tape lock and it will still slowly wind the tape back in. This tape lock is so secure that you can't pull it out or push it in when its engaged.
          They also added anti-tear coating to the first 6" of the tape which should help prolong its life. There is also a real nice wire form belt clip that is very thin and doesn't poke you in the hip should you clip it on the side of your pants. This being a 40 ft. tape it is quite large in the hand but not so big it doesn't feel comfortable. It is shaped ergonomically to fit your hand in all the right places. They also added a spot where you can attach a tether to it. This way if you are working up high you don't have to worry about dropping it on someone working below you or worrying about where you last left it.
          All in all the Milwaukee engineers did a fantastic job with this tape measure. I can tell that they went to their customers and got feedback and added some real nice features that I haven't seen before. Read Less
          Pros: Accurate, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy, numbers super easy to read

          The New Drake 2-Piece Elongated Dual Flush 1.28 GPF and 0.8 GPF Dynamax Tornado Flush Toilet with CEFIONTECT is the culmination of enhanced design and functionality. Powerful and durable enough to work within both residential and commercial applications, the new Drake exceeds all expectations. Featuring TOTOs Dynamax Tornado Flush, which utilizes a 360° cleaning power that reaches every part of the bowl. The enhanced design of the inner bowl reduces water flow resistance and turbulence, resulting in a quieter flush. The advanced dual flushing system allows you to proactively conserve water usage by choosing between a 0.8 GPF rinse or 1.28 GPF for tougher jobs. This version of the Drake includes CEFIONTECT, a layer of exceptionally smooth glaze that prevents particles from adhering to the ceramic. CEFIONTECT coupled with Dynamax Tornado Flush, helps reduce the frequency of toilet cleanings, minimizing the usage of water, harsh chemicals, and time required for cleaning. The TOTO Drake meets the standards for EPA WaterSense, and California's CEC and CALGreen requirements. This Drake model comes ready for install into a 12 in. rough-in. The Drake bowl and tank set includes tank to bowl hardware, a tank to bowl gasket, and toilet bolt caps. Additional items needed for installation and use must be purchased separately: wax ring, toilet mounting bolts, water supply lines, and toilet seat or upgraded WASHLET bidet seat. Color: Cotton White.

          This is our second Toto toilet and as far as I'm concerned they are the only toilets I will purchase. Since California mandates these ultra low flush toilets I was really worried about how good they would really work. I didn't need to worry though because I have never "plugged" either one of them up.
          This is my first dual flush toilet and I'm really pleased with how it works. I kind of wish I had gotten dual flush on my other TOTO toilet but I wasn't sure how it was going to work in the real world. It honestly works perfectly.

With the Dynamax Tornado flush the water covers the entire bowl and we haven't had to clean any marks left behind in the bowl yet. I think the Cefiontect coating makes a big difference because we have it on both of our TOTO toilets and they stay spotless inside the bowl.
          This toilet did not come with a toilet seat so we ordered one online from Home Depot and had it shipped to our home. I have attached a picture with the model number we used. It's a TOTO toilet seat so the shape and the color match the toilet perfectly.
          All in all we are very, very happy with our new TOTO toilet. If you are having to purchase a new toilet to meet the new codes I would personally only purchase TOTO. You will be happy in the long run that you did. Read Less
          Pros: Comfortable, Depth, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Great Value, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Modern, Performs Well, Reliable, Sleek, Solid, Sturdy, Stylish, very quiet flush

          I'm surrounded by hedges on three sides of my home. For years I have been using both a corded hedge trimmer and a battery powered hedge trimmer but not a pole hedge trimmer. Having a pole hedge trimmer has just made trimming the face and the top of the hedges a thousand times easier.
          In order to trim the tops of the hedges I was having to get on a ladder and hang my body out as far as it could go to reach the back half of the hedge since they are so large. This caused my back and shoulders to hurt at the end of the day because of being so over extended. With this new Ryobi cordless pole hedge trimmer those days are a thing of the past.

          I'm surrounded by hedges on three sides of my home. For years I have been using both a corded hedge trimmer and a battery powered hedge trimmer but not a pole hedge trimmer. Having a pole hedge trimmer has just made trimming the face and the top of the hedges a thousand times easier.
          In order to trim the tops of the hedges I was having to get on a ladder and hang my body out as far as it could go to reach the back half of the hedge since they are so large. This caused my back and shoulders to hurt at the end of the day because of being so over extended. With this new Ryobi cordless pole hedge trimmer those days are a thing of the past.
          I'm now able to stand on the top of my ladder and comfortably swing the pole hedge trimmer back and forth with almost no strain on my upper body to trim the top of the hedge. If my shoulders do start to ache I can use the provided shoulder strap to further remove any strain. This pole hedge trimmer comes in three pieces and you can set it up to be 5.7 ft. long or 8 ft. long depending on how far out you need to reach. With the trimmer setup in its 5.7 ft. configuration I can now quite comfortably trim the back top half of the hedges with no problems.
          It also makes trimming the face of the hedges much easier because I can now reach the whole face of the hedge from the ground. I no longer have to constantly climb up and down the ladder and have to move the ladder every few minutes once an area is trimmed. This is going to save me considerable time going forward.
          With the power of the Ryobi 40-Volt lithium-ion battery and the 2.0 Ah battery I should be able to trim a large section of my hedges at any given time now. The 5/8" cut capacity also makes easy work of the hedges. Unless you have a really thick hedge the 5/8" cut capacity should be plenty. This pole hedge trimmer also has a pivoting head so you can angle it at multiple angles. This is perfect for anyone who wants to trim the bottom of the hedge (or the top). You can set the angle and just walk down the hedge trimming it smoothly without having to bend way over to do so.
          If you are like me and have a lot of hedges to trim I would definitely buy one of these Ryobi pole hedge trimmers. With its padded handle (in the middle section if used) and its 18" bar length it will make fast work of any hedges or bushes you may have. With its 8.2 lb. weight your back and shoulders will thank you at the end of the day. Read Less
          Pros: All In One, Cuts Well, Durable, Easy to Store, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, Powerful, Sturdy, use in different lengths

          I normally use a drop spreader for adding fertilizer to my lawn but the new Ryobi cordless power spreader takes about 1/4 of the time so it is my new go to tool for getting it done. All you have to do is fill the hopper, adjust the pattern slide on the front, adjust the dispersion setting on the handle and pull the trigger. It is literally that easy. I just fertilized my lawn today in less than 5 minutes.
          I had the front adjustment wide open which makes a 180 degree pattern. You can adjust the slide on the front so that it will go all the way down to a 90 degree, 45 degree or even smaller pattern as needed.

          I had the front adjustment wide open which makes a 180 degree pattern. You can adjust the slide on the front so that it will go all the way down to a 90 degree, 45 degree or even smaller pattern as needed. In the instruction book it shows you which setting to set the knob on based on the size of the fertilizer pellet you are dispensing. I set it on a 4.5 setting and it was spot on for the size of fertilizer I dispensed.
          I thought at first that I had a defective spreader because I was pulling the trigger and nothing was coming out. Come to find out you have to fully pull the trigger to open the little slide in the bottom of the hopper otherwise it spins the wheel but it won't dispense anything.
          This spreader does tend to throw the fertilizer quite far so I did have to go behind it with my leaf blower to blow the fertilizer off my sidewalks and driveway but all in all it was worth it for how fast it goes. I could have been a little more cautious with my pattern setting but I was quite happy with running it with the front wide open in a 180 degree arc.
          Ryobi has done it again with another innovative product. It is great to see them coming up with new ideas for tools that can be added to the 18 Volt One + market. I have a lot of Ryobi products and this is another great one for the collection. If you are a homeowner or a professional landscape company this spreader will make your job much, much easier and faster. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Functionality, Great Quality, Multi Use, spreads fertilizer super fast

          I have been using a socket set my grandfather gave me over 40 years ago that he bought at a flea market. It has served me well over the years but at some point the plastic hinges on the case broke and the two halves have been separated ever since.

          I have been using a socket set my grandfather gave me over 40 years ago that he bought at a flea market. It has served me well over the years but at some point the plastic hinges on the case broke and the two halves have been separated ever since. That socket set also only had the basics and there were many times over the years when I didn't have the correct socket for what I was working on.
          With this GearWrench 71 piece set with both SAE/Metric impact sockets I will never have that problem ever again. This socket set literally has everything you could ever need and more. With the standard and metric sockets both in one case you won't have to go digging around looking for the correct socket. There are several different sized swivel sockets, standard sockets, deep sockets and extensions all in this one wonderful case.
          With the laser etching on both sides of each socket you will never have to look too hard to find the correct socket. Plus they took the time to identify each socket spot inside the blow mold case with raised numbers so you can find where to remove the socket from or where to correctly put it back.
          The fact that this is an impact socket set is even better. All I need now is a 1/4 impact driver so I can fully utilize this set. I have a large 1/2" impact driver I use for large projects but now I have a good excuse for getting myself a smaller 1/4" impact driver that I have always wanted. If you are a homeowner, construction worker or an auto mechanic I would definitely give this impact socket set a try. You will be very happy you did. You will never have to buy another socket set in your life time. There is literally everything you could ever possibly need in here and more. Read Less
          Pros: All In One, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy, fantastic storage case, laser etched on both sides

          This will be the only light in the living room (room is approx. 25' x 20'). Will the light on this fan give me the coverage I need to light this area?

          Answer: 
          The bulb on this is 14 watts which is the equivalent of a 100 watt light bulb so I don't think it will be bright enough for you. I have attached a picture of our fan with the light on. Our MBR is 14' x 19" with a very tall sloped ceiling and it lights up our bedroom perfectly. I don't think this will be enough light for you personally though. It is truly the best ceiling fan I have encountered though. Read More

          The rich color of this Textured Ceramic Shaped Pot is covered in a glaze for a polished look. A saucer collects the excess water from built-in drainage holes that protect against overwatering. Pot will add seasonal longevity and character to any gardens cape. Color: GREEN.
           

          Is there a drainage hole?

          Yes, it has a center drainage hole that flows into an attached saucer that is not removable

          Answer: 
          Not sure how well the paint would adhere to the glazed surface. Also think it would be a shame to cover up the nice glaze work and it would diminish it's texture.
