          Product: Coast HX4 80 Lumen Dual Color LED Clip Light/Country of Origin: China/////
          This little clip-on light is impressive. It's bright, clips on to a hat brim, shirt pocket...just about anything that isn't too thick really. The LED light rotates 180 degrees and is dual color; white or red. It's even weatherproof. You simply cannot go wrong with this little baby. For a general purpose, clip-on light one would do well to consider this product. Inexpensive, bright and durable. A triple threat.
          Pros: Durable, Light Weight, weatherproof

          Product: 2 in. Ball Coupler with 2-1/2 in. to 3 in. Adjustable Collars/Country of Origin: China/////
          This ball coupler is a very adequate replacement and is currently serving me well. The fact that it adjusts for 2 1/2" to 3" collars is a real plus. It's not terribly expensive and is as strong as any other coupler of its type that I've used. I installed it on the trailer that I use to haul my 21' boat and have had no problems with it whatsoever. While it's still fairly new, it's resisted rust so far.

          The Drill America KFD Killer Force 5/16" Drill Bit w/Hex Shank is one darned good bit. It's made from high speed steel and features a 135 degree split point which permits drilling into most wood and metal without fear of the bit walking around your project. It's been surface treated for use on stainless steel and other extremely hard metals and, generally speaking, is a good choice for general drilling purposes.

          Drill America Cobalt Aircraft Extension Drills are similar to high-speed steel, but with more cobalt for improved performance when cutting harder metals such as stainless steel or nickel alloys. Gold oxide is a thinner oxide surface treatment than black oxide typically used to identify cobalt steel tools; performance is similar to uncoated tools. Drill America Aircraft Extension Drills are manufactured to National Aerospace Standard 907. The 135° split point is self-centering and reduces thrust. Sizes smaller than 1/16 have the 118° standard point. Drill America Aircraft Extension Drills are available in 6 in. and 12 in. overall lengths when extra reach is required.

          This bit by Drill America is quite nice. It's made from steel that has a bit more cobalt in it than does regular high speed steel and it cuts well. The two features that I like best are the length and 135 degree split point. These features allow me to drill in areas with depth and limited space without my drill slamming into my work or the bit walking around. I also like the way in which it cuts through stainless steel. Drilling stainless steel can be a challenge if one doesn't use the proper bit as anyone familiar with that material is aware. This bit can get you out of a jam pretty quickly.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight

          This hole saw arbor performed well and is of surprisingly good quality given that it's imported. Included is a 1/4" pilot bit which has been ground to 118 degrees. While the bit didn't walk on me, it might be a good idea to provide a 135 degree bit instead. Over all I feel that it's a pretty good buy.

          My new gun takes about 10 minutes to start flowing with the 3 glues sticks included in package. Even then glue takes some force with trigger. My Kill-a-watt meter shows this gun drawing 7.3 watts on low, 12.4 watts on high (at 125 volts). Shouldn't this be drawing closer to claimed 80 watts?
