          Product: Medium Base Keyless White Porcelain Lampholder
          Country of Origin: China
          While not particularly attractive (all lampholders of this type lack aesthetics), this lampholder is sturdy and easy to install. I recently acquired it so I'm unable to report on its long-term performance, but fixtures of this sort are typically long-lived and, given it's a switched model, there aren't any moving parts. I suspect that, with proper installation and care, this product will easily last upwards of 20 years.
          Pros: Functional, Easy to Install
          Cons: Appearance

          I found this product to be adequate for most lightweight DIY applications. The ball bearings aren't the smoothest, but are far from the worst. I found that removing the wheels, applying grease to the bushings and reinstalling the wheels made for a significantly smoother roll. They are ideal low cost solutions for dollies, power tools (table saws, etc.), small shop carts, etc.. I would caution against precision, heavy-duty or industrial applications however.
          Pros: affordable
          Cons: light-duty, avg. quality

          Keep all your 1/4 in. drive sockets organized with the Steel man 42032 magnetic organizer. The soft rubberized covering on the bottom of this organizer prevents damage to finished surfaces and does double duty by both allowing the holder to be mounted on any ferrous metal surface and keeping held sockets securely in place. Designed to hold a total of 26 sockets, 13 shallow and 13 deep, it can accommodate either standard/SAE and metric sockets. The durable plastic construction is oil and fuel resistant and the smooth surface is easy to wipe clean when soiled. In addition, the magnetic material used is non-transferrable and will not magnetize held sockets or surfaces/tools it comes in contact with.

          Of the three drive sizes, this item is the only one which holds even close to a full set of sockets. The 3/8" and 1/2" drive versions do not have enough receptacles. This model will hold a reasonably average set. It's built pretty well for a non-USA made product and the magnets are strong. Overall...if a non-USA made product doesn't offend your sensibilities, I would recommend it. It is a nice design upgrade from traditional socket holders from which sockets tend to fall off when disturbed.
          Pros: Durable, Nice Design, Sturdy

          I found this item to be of seemingly good quality...particularly due to its non-USA origin. It appears to be built in a sturdy manner and the magnets are strong. The downside is its size. It doesn't hold a full set of sockets. One might suggest purchasing two, but since the diameter of each receptacle would be identical on both items, doing so wouldn't be a solution. If one has a small array of sockets and doesn't plan on increasing the number in his set, this would be a great method by which to store those sockets. If one has a medium to large set, I don't believe that this product would be a proper storage solution.
          Pros: Durable, Sturdy
          Cons: too few receptacles
