I was able to use this light unit without the tripod which allows you to use the lights in small places. I have used the lights while painting, and in my garage shop for additional lighting. The lights are very bright and extremely energy efficient without the heat generated like traditional halogen flood lights. There is small amount of assembly required out of the box just follow the enclosed operating instructions. Read Less

          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.

          Over the years I have done home improvements involving varying types of construction in my home (i.e. sheet rock, studs, tiling and wood flooring). I have used several different size and types of levels depending on the job I’m doing. I found this level to be well made and accurate. I tested its accuracy by setting the level in one direction and then flipped it over and upside down and the vial showed the same in all positions.

          Answer: 
          I looked thought out the Owner's Manual but could not find anything on the energy guide of this appliance. If it was on the door when delivered it we would have removed it. I can only suggest you contact GE customer relations. GEAppliances.com/ge/service-and-support/contact.htm
           
          Crack-Tape repairs difficult cracks on flat surfaces and corners. Ten times stronger than paper tape, the tape repairs stress cracks and cracks due to truss uplifts. Crack-Tape cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, but also resists blisters, tears, shrinkage, and wrinkles. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it can be used for finishing drywall in high humidity applications. To apply measure and cut to length, then fold in half for corners. Apply all-purpose compound to surface or corner. Press Crack-Tape into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

          Answer: 
          I don't believe any drywall tape will be good on a sagging ceiling. This tape is excellent for ceilings where cracks keep on reappearing. I suggest that you use additional sheet rock screws to secure the wall board to the ceiling joists. Once the ceiling is secure I would use this crack tape.
