          This is the second time that I've used Essentials drawer pulls...because I like them that much. I normally am not so well received of imported products, but I can't find fault anywhere with this cabinet hardware. They look great, add a bit of elegance to cabinetry and are die cast. With reasonable care, this hardware will last for years on end. The cabinets won't outlive this stuff.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          This light is a great choice for a small shop or work area. No wiring required. Simply screw a couple of light duty hooks into the ceiling (rafters, toggle bolts in drywall, etc.), hang the light using the provided chains and plug it in. It draws 30 watts and will light up a workspace like nobody's business. I added mine to a light that I already had up in the loft of my shed and every inch of the loft is now illuminated.

          This decorative hanging pendant offers a clean, hexagon design with clear seeded glass shades that provide a unique pattern of light on the surrounding areas. The use of modern finishes and the sophistication of this style has taken hold in today's home interior light fixtures. The protective bronze finish adds modern style to this pendant light. These light fixtures are built from steel to last for years to come; they are backed by a 5 year limited manufacturer's warranty. This pendant is designed for dining areas, nooks, sitting areas, living rooms and larger bedrooms and it can be mounted on a sloped ceiling. These light fixtures install easily and use 6 screw based candelabra style light bulbs up to 60-Watt each light bulbs are not included. Two 12 in. and two 6 in. decorative rods are included for adjustable hanging length.

          This light fixture makes a moderately nice appearance. I installed it over the dining room table and connected it to a dimmer switch. In my case, it was necessary to swag the fixture rather than use the provided down-rod which made the installation a bit more challenging. It was necessary to purchase 2 loops, enlarge the opening in the canopy for one and connect the other to the actual fixture itself. Had I not opted to re-engineer the suspension system, I'm sure that the installation would have been of average difficulty. I would recommend this product cautiously as over all Read More

          I wasn't terribly impressed with this brake kit, but it does do the job. It's pretty much a universal kit in that the tools included fit a number of makes and models. I must say that I did like the depth gauges. They are color coded, large enough to handle and easy to use. Still; the components were of average import quality which is a turn-off for me. I was able to use the kit to change the brake shoes on my truck, but I
          wouldn't particularly recommend the kit because it meets minimum use standards. My suggestion is to look for something manufactured to a higher standard...something made in the USA

          The Parsons Field outdoor pendant is designed in the tradition of vintage gas lamps with its open framework and tall profile, making it a sophisticated touch for any exterior. It features a striking three light candelabra set of staggered height perfect for illuminating entryways with elegance. It is framed using a cool aged pewter finish paired with clear glass panes for a clean finish.

I do cede that the location in which I installed the fixture wasn't ideal. however, one doesn't always have the need for items to be situated in the areas of easiest installation. If one needs a light fixture in a particular part of his home, then that's where it gets installed...period. Worse than that; fitment was a major drawback. Virtually nothing assembled to a point that meshed. The glass panes didn't seat properly due to the chassis being tweaked. It didn't appear to have been damaged in shipping...it was simply manufactured to a low standard of quality and wasn't square. Joining that section to the upper section of the fixture was equally as challenging and required assistance from another person. How many light fixtures of this size and weight actually require more than one person for installation? To cap it off, one of the sockets isn't working properly. The bulb comes on when it wants...IF it wants. Now I have take the fixture down and attempt to ensure that the electrode in the socket is making contact with electrode on the bottom of the bulb. Lastly; the candle covers are adorned in wood-esque decals. Unbelievable. A wood look doesn't belong anywhere near this type of light fixture and, in the event that it did, something better than the printed paper used in laminate flooring products is definitely in order. I literally do not have one positive thing to say about this fixture and I advise anyone who may be considering it to cross it off his list immediately. Read Less
          Cons: Difficult to Install, poor quality, fitment problems, chintzy look

          The Milwaukee 48-14-0004 is a 4 Piece Forstner Bit Set. Milwaukee's Forstner bits can be used in drilling pocket holes, overlapping holes or holes on the edge of materials. Specially designed fine kerfs teeth help to produce accurate and clean holes. The bit's precision ground edges also help produce flat bottom holes.
           

          What size bits are included in this set? The specifications noted do not provide any information as to the size of the bits included.

          Specifying the bit sizes would be considerably more useful than specifying there are 4 bits.
