          I absolutely love motion sensor switches and this one is no exception. There's nothing better than the peace of mind that comes from not having to concern oneself with turning lights on or off. No fumbling for the switch in a dark room and - better yet - no wasted electricity! When someone enters a room the lights come on and when that person leaves...voila...they turn off automatically within the time frame that the switch has been set to. It also has a photocell which stops the switch from turning on when the room is already adequately lit. This type of switch may or may not be practical for the kitchen Read More

          Not a whole lot to be said about these zip-ties...they're zip-ties. That said; they are as good as any that I've used and I recommend them. I'm accustomed mostly to black and white versions, but if one wanted to color-code his bindings these and Industro's other colored zip-ties would be ideal for the job. Definitely appropriate for any job that requires zip-ties.

          This faucet is a beauty. I installed mine without the escutcheon and it's sleek and elegant. It was incredibly easy to install and works perfectly. The SheildSpray feature is a bit unusual and I'm not certain that it lives up to the manufacturer's claims, but that doesn't phase me because I've never seen nor used such a feature. One cannot miss what one's never had. Overall this faucet's a real winner and I highly recommend it.

          This light fixture makes a nice appearance and works well when connected to a dimmer. I installed mine above my kitchen sink and I have more than enough light for virtually anything that I'd care to do. The brushed steel finish goes well with my stainless steel appliances and cabinet handles. If I have one complaint it's the lenses. They're made from a thick plastic of some sort and aren't very attractive. Other than that I'm quite satisfied with the fixture.
          Pros: Functional, Nice Design, Very Bright
          Cons: lenses aren't attractive

          The Corona 10 in. Bastard-Cut Mill file is used for shaping steel or restoring sharp edges and where a smooth finish is important. This file is ideal for sharpening tools such as spades, shovels, hoes, scrapers, etc. It can also be used to polish and deburring work lathes. This Bastard-Cut Mill file will leave a medium to coarse finish and has a single cut tooth pattern for gradual removal of material and sharpening. It features a rectangular cross section that tapers from the tang toward the end.

          Product: Corona 10 in. (name not allowed by Home Depot) Cut Mill File/Country of Origin: Mexico/////
          This (name not allowed by Home Depot) cut file is quite nice. It's a good choice for knocking down the rough and sharp edges from the initial cut. At 10 inches, it's long enough to make full passes with yet will still allow the user to work in somewhat tight areas. The file hasn't become worn in any way so it appears as though it will hold up (I haven't had it long enough to say so definitively). Bottom line: good product.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy
