          The Frontier Service Tray is perfect for the technician who's working in a variety of hard to reach situations. It can be raised or lowered and due to the offset can move in close when needed. The large work tray has a 25 lbs. weight capacity and extend up to 49 in. Color: Blue.

          This is a little back saver of a cart. I like that it is light enough that it is easy to move across the 6 inch drop out of the threshold of my shop to the concrete outside. I’ve used this for a few jobs already where I was doing some assembly and wiring and both times the savings in bending to the ground had I had my parts and tools there instead of elevated greatly reduced the wear and tear on my old body. The height is adjustable but to be honest I think once you get set to what works for you that is where you will leave it. At least that is how it worked out for me. It’s a little odd that the supports under it are offset but I guess that is to get into tight places. It has not posed any Read More

A brake would be nice but when I had it on an incline I just sat a 2x6 on the ground and that held it in place. Without that it rolls down hill since the wheels turn pretty easily. Read Less

          This is a good heavy well made door. We like the bronze tone and it will go well with the bronze fixtures we plan to use. This door is part of a complete bathroom remodel which I hope to begin very soon. The frosted glass is just what we wanted in this bathroom. We used a similar door with clear glass in another bathroom we remodeled a few years ago and wanted something different for this one. I just feel it is easier to care for a door than to be forever swapping out shower curtains. The design should make this easy to install and hang. I did the last one myself and expect I’ll likely do this one as well although a contractor will be doing most of the rest of the remodel. I really look Read More

          Once you use one of these the wheelbarrow will get the old heave ho. This thing is so much easier on the body than trying to deal with a wheel barrow for heavy loads. Assembly was super easy. Took me about 10 minutes at a leisurely pace alone. The dump mechanism is simple but clever and works extremely well. I was a little surprised just how well. I have a good heavy poly wheel barrow I paid a lot for 20 years ago that is still in good shape but I don’t really see me using it any more. The wheels are very smooth and this thing rolls easy even with a load. I had some bags of concrete to move this weekend and this made that so much easier.

My back wishes I’d had one of these years ago. I’ve battled many a heavy load in a wheel barrow. Of course there are places you can take a wheel barrow you could not one of these. For instance I’ve pushed some loads in a wheel barrow up walkboards (i.e. 2x10’s or 2x12’s) on construction sites. But those days are long behind me now and I’m looking to work smarter with the back I have left. This is one way to do it. Read Less

          The M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH DEMAND 9.0 Battery Pack delivers up to 5X more run-time, 35% more power, and runs 60% cooler than standard 18-Volt lithium-ion batteries. The battery is best optimized for high draw products and sustained run-time applications, and it provides the next, large step towards full corded replacement when paired with the M18 system of solutions. It maintains full power and runs substantially cooler through heavy applications, allowing users to push their cordless tools harder and longer than ever before. The M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH DEMAND 9.0 battery is fully compatible with 175 plus M18 tools.

          These batteries can’t be beat in conjunction with the M18 tools for getting the job done in a wonderfully cord free and hose free way. This smaller one is great for tools like the drill or impact driver. While the larger one is ready for the heavier users like the Sawzall or circular saw. I just bought the M18 7 ¼ inch circular saw and combined with this battery this is now my favorite saw. I have a very solid Bosch I have had for 20 years that has gone through everything and is still going strong but that just took and back seat and stays in the toolbox now. I love going cordless.

And I’m using all these tools all the time. I won’t be going back to cords or gas for these things. I’m looking hard at the new framing nailer now. I think with this 9.0 battery that might just be the ticket for a project I have in mind where it could save me some time and the pain of dragging around a hose. As a bonus the set comes with a nice heavy duty bag that could be used for lots of things besides just carrying around batteries and a charger which is probably how I will use the bag. With the batteries and chargers I have now I could keep a whole crew going strong let alone just myself. I really hate having top stop and wait on a tool. Now I never have to. Read Less

This is exactly what we were after and it made my wife happy with the design (not an easy task as I had looked at literally hundreds of lights over the course of months). We both like that we were able to mount it using only one of the rods so that it only extends down only around 14 to 15 inches since this is a room with an 8 ft ceiling. It arrived without blemish and well packed. The finish is nice and it runs very cool. I left it on for an hour and I was able to lay my hand anywhere on the outside without feeling much at all in the way of heat. Installation was very easy. Took me about 10 minutes to install it. I used wago lever wire nuts instead of the small wire nuts that come with it. I like them much better for mating stranded wire to solid wire. I feel you get a better connection with them. They are also much easier to use than wire nuts. If you need a bright attractive light that is simple to install and puts out a lot of light you can’t go wrong. Read Less

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.
           
          The Storehouse mailbox can easily be called a powerhouse when it comes to storing large volumes of mail. This extra-large mailbox was designed to fit the newest USPS Standard 7C regulation, and is generously sized to meet the increase of large parcel deliveries. Large boxes will no longer be left conspicuously at your door for potential damage or vandalism. The Storehouse has a wide mail delivery opening measuring 7.24 in. tall x 13.44 in. wide to easily accept multiple parcel box deliveries along with daily mail. In addition to its impressive storage capacity, this mailbox is constructed from heavy-duty gauge galvanized steel and protected with a powder-coat finish for lasting durability against rust, and impacts. The Storehouse also comes fully assembled with pre-drilled bottom mounting holes. Mounting hardware is sold separately. Color: Black.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.

          Remember when you could sand giant workpieces. Take on the biggest and the baddest with the WEN 12 in. Benchtop Disc Sander. Our powerful 8 Amp motor features a direct-drive design to maximize torque during operation. The spacious 5.5 in. x 15.5 in. table bevels up to 45° for angled pieces. Combine that with the sliding miter gauge for a versatile sander that meets the needs of a variety of projects. This package also includes a pre-installed adhesive-backed 60-grit sanding disc, an onboard 2 in. dust port and a 2.5 in. Dia dust hose. And because its a WEN product, your disc sander comes backed by a 2-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians, and a friendly technical support line, all to make sure you remember WEN.
