          The Renogy Brand, 12 in. 12AWG RV Adapter 30 Amp Male to 15 Amp Female Dog Bone Electrical Converter Cord Cable will find many uses for small and larger RV owners alike.

          The Everbilt Brand, 3/16 in. x 6 ft. Galvanized Steel Security Cable Wire Rope is an affordable uncoated corrosion resistant utility cable having convenient looped ends. I use various security cables when camping to secure stuff from walking off. This cable is a good choice to use by its self or with other cables as the looped ends make daisy chaining cables end to end for more length easy and secure. Since this cable is not coated, it is best used to secure items not subject to vibration like generators. It is light weight, wraps around its self and stores easily. It is not the supplest of cables, having a bit of spring to it. If and when it should ever rust, I’ll likely use it as a choker Read More

Really, there is absolutely no need for a corded angle grinder except for the biggest jobs that might be encountered with this Milwaukee, M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless angle grinder. The lithium battery powering this grinder is big and long lasting. While not the largest battery Milwaukee offers, it is a good match for this angle grinder based on weight and balance verses battery life. This is such a versatile angle grinder, for cutting stone, cutting concrete roof tiles, grinding metals and sanding wall surfaces, it is likely the only grinder a contractor or DIY home owner may ever need. To say it is impressive, is to say it is just another good angle grinder. This grinder is really outstanding with one little frustration. Due to the very efficient and powerful permanent magnet motor of this grinder, it makes the spindle lock a bit difficult to use. Not impossible, just somewhat difficult. A very strong permanent magnet motor is employed in this grinder for power and efficiency, but moves past the internal magnets quickly and with force, making the spindle lock somewhat difficult to engage. Not impossible, just more difficult than a non-permanent magnet motor. The grinder comes with a storage bag, that I really like. Some DIY home owners might prefer plastic storage cases, however as a handy man, I prefer a bag as I can usually fit the other tools I need in the bag for a customer’s job. I am not a contractor, yet still I would prefer a bag if I were. I wish every tool in my tool box were “Milwaukee Red,” really, Milwaukee makes some of the finest tools anyone will ever own.

          Answer: 
          The aluminum crimps for the loops would start to melt at about 1,200 Fahrenheit degrees, so as long as the cable were not used at its full rated load limit of 840 pounds, temperatures of 800 Fahrenheit degrees likely would not be detrimental to the cable or its application. The steel its self is basically unaffected at temperatures of 800 Fahrenheit degrees. Since zinc galvanizing melts at 787 Fahrenheit Read More

The steel its self is basically unaffected at temperatures of 800 Fahrenheit degrees. Since zinc galvanizing melts at 787 Fahrenheit degrees, it would be best not to breath zinc fumes if any, until completely vaporized. However, the cable may then rust once its zinc corrosion protection was lost. A better choice for high temperature use would be to select a 100-percent stainless steel cable if available.

I can say, this ozone generator does completely eliminate my cats’ odors until he makes more. I have found it to be very effective when not being able to throw everything in the washing machine.

          This battery charger is designed to charge both six-volt and twelve-volt lead/acid secondary batteries, which are rechargeable batteries. This Charger should not be used on any “primary” battery of six or twelve volts that is not rechargeable, as the battery may explode or catch on fire if it was not designed to be recharged. Please only use this charger with a battery designed to be recharged.

          Answer: 
          DOT propane tanks are good for 12 years from the date code stamped on the tank collar in the United States and only 10 years in Canada unless properly recertified. There are three levels of DOT propane tank recertification depending upon the level of inspection at the time of recertification. The simplest and most affordable level of inspection recertifies the tank for an additional 5-years in the US. Read More

The simplest and most affordable level of inspection recertifies the tank for an additional 5-years in the US. Sometimes it can me more economical to replace an expired tank then to have it recertified. Regarding the US propane tank regulations, at their last revision, the 12-year service life of new tanks was reduced to 10-years. However, the 10-years requirement is not being enforced at this time because of lack of adequate justification when revised. Occasionally a propane filling station operator in the US enforces the new 10-year requirement until it finally gets sorted out or is enforced. If travelling to Canada from the US, be aware if your tank is older than 10-years, it may be refused for refilling. Also, not all US recertifications may be recognized in Canada either.
