          The Crescent Wiss 2-Ring Full Metal Body Scissor features full-length steel blades that extend through the handles for maximum strength. These heavy-duty blades have a titanium coating that is 3 times harder than steel for extra durability and a longer blade life. They have an adjustable pivot and ergonomic ring design to provide a comfortable grip and they easily cut paper, cardboard, heavy fabric, rope, leather, plastics and more. This heavy-duty scissor is the perfect shop or jobsite shear for when a lighter duty scissor just wont make the cut.

          These are very similar to a sturdy pair of household scissors. For what they are, they are excellent. They are excellent for around the shop and garage.Things like plastic packaging cut like butter. Cutting stuff like caulk tips, duct tape, painter’s plastic, leather, heavy cardboard, lightweight aluminum, rope, romax wiring, etc. are easy.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy

          I used the Leather CPR cleaner and conditioner on my leather couch in my family room. I applied the product with a soft sponge and wiped it off with a soft white cloth as per the instructions on the bottle. It was easy to apply and easy to wipe off. I found that it did not leave any sticky residue. It leaves a smooth feel to the finish and a clean shine to the leather. The leather does feel a bit softer. I would highly recommend this product because of its ease of application and good results.

          I used the Granite CPR on my outdoor stone table. It was easy to apply and left the table with a smooth finish. I applied two coats and noticed that when it rained the water somewhat beaded up on the table. The only negative thing is that on the bottle it claims to leave a gorgeous shine which it did not. I also used this product on my polished granite in the kitchen and it was also easy to use and looked good. I would recommend this product as long as you are not looking to shine up unpolished granite or stone.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install
          Cons: no high shine

          When you have a very large area to paint that can't be sprayed or you don’t have a sprayer, this roller worked well. There's always going to be some projects that will require a large roller frame. However, roller frames of this size have a couple of problematic issues:
          1. You can't roll as close to corners as you can with smaller rollers, because these rollers have brackets on both sides of them, rather than one side.
          2. Roller sleeves are not mounted as securely as they are on smaller handles, and could come loose.
          3. These rollers get pretty heavy - especially when you're working with a thick-nap roller sleeve.

          This model came with two red plastic thumb latches that tightens and locks the arm brackets in place. Some other models come with wing- nuts. This is the only model of Wooster roller frame I have used. This frame gives you the option of using either a screw-on or clasp-on extension pole with it. Read Less
          Pros: Good Coverage, Easy to Use

          The flip joint 3-in-1 cable cutter made short work in cutting, slicing and stripping Romex cable. The cutter is able to slice and remove the outer sheath and strip the conductors. When stripping the conductors care must be used not to cut the copper wire when applying pressure during the stripping operation.
          It is not like a wire stripper that has specific slots for stripping various gauge wire.

          is it possible to see the energy guide that should be on the freezer somewhere (In store) I can't find any info re energy use except that it is energystar. Would like to see how much difference in energy usage compared to a new freezer that isn't energystar. Thanks!!

          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.
