          Hone high-quality tools back to their original factory tolerances with the General Tools 809 Chisel/Plane Blade Sharpener. Graduated settings make it easy to maintain a correct 30-degree cutting angle on a variety of blade types. A spring clamp locks in blades up to 2-5/8 inches (67mm) wide. This chisel and plane blade sharpener is made of high-impact, fiberglass-reinforced Lexan and can be used with stones or emery paper. It folds compactly when not in use for easy storage.

          I found it somewhat difficult to get repeatable results with this jig. Lining up the arrow to the numbers is somewhat accurate but will only work if you set your blade to protrude a set distance from the front of the jig each time. There is no marking or way to do that unless you use a ruler which could be a hit or miss proportion. I could set it to "0" and leave it there, but vary the actual angle by 20 degrees or more just by changing how far the blade protrudes. The wheel that sets the angle does not have any kind of fine adjustments. There is also no easy way to ensure that your blade is squared except eyeballing it. The mechanism that holds the blade to the jig can vary causing the tool Read More

You must keep an eye on the blade to make sure it stays straight while sharpening. I was able to sharpen my chisels but you must pay close attention to the positioning of the tool. Read Less

          The 6-piece set features a general purpose selection of the most frequently used screwdrivers. This set also includes Klein Tools Patented Magnetizer/Demagnetizer. Quickly magnetize the tip of your driver to hold your fasteners and get the job done fast. The Tip-Ident quickly identifies the screwdriver type and tip orientation. Flanges inside the handle provide asolid, twist-resistant blade anchor. The tips are precision-machined for the exact fit you expect from Klein Tools.

          The Klein screw driver set consists of six screw drivers, three Philips head and 3 blade head. There is also a magnetizer/demagnetizer tool included. You can quickly magnetize the tip of your driver to hold your fasteners and get the job done fast. Each of the screw drivers come with a rubber grip. However, these grips will not protect you from electrical shock. It would be nice if the screw drivers were in roll up pocket pouch for storage and carrying. I plan to either keep this set in my car in the event I get struck on the road and need to tighten a hose connection or in the house for everyday repairs. As always Klein tools are made to a very high standard.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy

          I found some had "minor" cracks in some of the wood. However, I was able to use it because I filled the cracks with wood putty, sanded and re-primed the wood.

          The Savage Box Beam Level is the ultimate in accuracy and durability. The Box Beam Level is called such due to the construction of the frame. If you were to cut one in half, you would see the rectangular construction that gives these types of spirit levels the ultimate in durability.

It’s great for cleaning up your vehicle without hauling out the big shop vacuum and extension cord. The vacuum can hold a lot of debris before it is necessary to empty it. The suction is sufficient enough to clean up most dirt and dust. The crevice attachment has a fold out brush which is nice and the hair attachment works really well in picking up pet hair. .

          The high performance blow gun delivers 92 SCFM and 88% more air flow than standard blow guns. The ultimate flow tip draws in air through the side ports to increase air delivery and provides more than enough power to clean large workshop areas, outdoor furniture, lawn mower decks, large machinery and heavy equipment. It comes with a large storage hook for easy access and meets OSHA standards.
           

          Is there an adapter to go from 1/4 to 3/8 coupler?

          Answer: 
          The use of this product is for filling cracks and dents in exterior surfaces. I would not recommend using it for drywall seams with tape. The standard interior drywall compound would probably be easier to spread and cover the drywall seams with tape.
