          The Plymouth family features a hybrid design that incorporates style elements from both contemporary and traditional compositions. Elegantly complemented with antique gold patterned bell shades, the Plymouth table lamps will add classy flair and refinement to your home. The Plymouth is finished in a rich oil rubbed bronze that appears smooth and glossy under the illuminated shade. The eye-catching sculpted silhouettes are only interrupted by the alluring charm of a genuine polished marble sphere. The perfect transitional accent, the Plymouth will be the perfect finishing touch in your classic-contemporary home.

          On the whole this is a decent lamp. Not quite great but good. The general build is solid and the shade is of a good quality and uses an attractive material. The finish is fair but a bit inconsistent and could be better in places. The entry hole for the cord is somewhat larger than the cord and there is no grommet or such around the cord where it goes through the base to protect the cord from chafing and to provide stress relief for connections. Granted it does not have the sharp edge that a metal casing would have so it will probably be fine. It just gives me a little concern that it lacks the chafing protection and stress relief that is more typical. Were it not for the inconsistencies in Read More

It just gives me a little concern that it lacks the chafing protection and stress relief that is more typical. Were it not for the inconsistencies in the finish and the way the cord lacks better protection I would give it 5 stars but I have not knock off one star on quality for these things. It does not put off a ton of light because the shade is dark enough and heavy enough to mute the light a bit. But the effect of a softer light with no glare is what I was after so this is a plus for me. Your mileage may vary based on your lighting aims. Just be aware this is how it is. I use this when I don’t want my bright overhead lights on. It is perfect for that. Of course the only assembly is dropping the shade on it. Read Less
          Pros: looks good, nice soft light - no glare w/shade, nice shade
          Cons: finish could be a little better

          The MILWAUKEE M12 extra-large Heated AXIS Layering System with GRIDIRON Work Shell s are designed to protect users from the coldest weather conditions on the job site. Powered by M12 REDLITHIUM Battery Technology, the AXIS heated work jackets use carbon fiber heating elements to create and distribute heat to the chest, back and shoulders. A one-touch LED controller heats up the battery heated jacket to three heat settings, creating a comfortable heat for any environment or weather. The heated jacket has a new Quick-Heat function that allows users to feel heat three times faster than our previous jackets and market competitors. Like all of Milwaukee's other products, these jackets are built strong to last long with new AXIS Ripstop Polyester providing a lightweight, compressible design that can be used as an inner layer or mid-layer jacket and protects users from wind and water to survive the elements. Paired with M12 Heat On Demand, the optimal insulation in both jackets provides users with ultimate warmth. GRIDIRON Ripstop Polyester delivers durability without sacrificing mobility so users can survive the job site. The heated coats are available in black. These s come with the M12 battery heated jacket and GRIDIRON work shell, one M12 REDLITHIUM CP2.0 battery and an M12 compact charger and power source. Gender: male. Age Group: adult.

          This might be the nicest Milwaukee thing I have out of a large collection of Milwaukee products. I’m ready to meat winter head on now. Unfortunately the record highs here in the southeast just dropped off yesterday (yes, 95+ in October or Julytober if you will) so now we are just starting to get into that nice cool that feels more like football season. And that is where this comes in. Sitting in the cold is a lot worse than working in the cold. When you are exerting yourself you can get by with less. So this is wonderful for sitting in the cold windy stands during the late season cold weather playoff games. The lined approach is nice since you can just swap shells if you are still in the rainy season. I picked up an extra M12 battery and I already had a number of the big chargers so I don’t need the small charger it came with but that is a convenient way to charge it if you don’t have a big rapid charger. I’ve been impressed with the Milwaukee battery technology and am looking forward to the cold so I can really see how this thing performs. I figure 2 batteries will get through a long game and including some overtime if needed. I’ve already been using the M12 battery in a spotlight I bought and I’ve been going on the same charge for weeks of intermittent use. So I have good expectations on battery life. Even without the heating this thing is super warm. The way the battery stores in the inner shell is nice and in a good spot. The controls are simple and can be operated with gloves on. So, yep I’m warming up nicely to this one. Can’t beat it with a cold stick. The hood is well made and does not fall in your face like some. It's very comfortable all around. And the material and zippers are all nice and heavy. No junky little zippers that cannot stand up to use here. Butt the whole thing is not so heacy as to weight you down. It's a very well thought out design. If it was in camo I would say it is perfect for sitting in a tree stand but I'm not sure you shuld be this comfortable when hunting. You'd have a tendency to just doze off. (well I would) Read Less
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, super warm, nice layered design, good battery life
          Cons: a little pricey but made super well

          These are exactly the kind of industrial quality screwdrivers you would expect from Klein. They may be the best ones you can buy. I would say they are certainly the best ones you can buy for the money. The grips are the best I’ve seen. And the tooling and metal are top quality and built to last.

It is good to see that done here. They have been making them a while like this and don’t need to mess with a thing. I already had the extra long one shown in my pictures so these round out a nice set giving you phillips and flathead in a variety of sizes including the stubbies which are very handy in tight spots. You just can’t beat these. It’s a nicely rounded set. Read Less

          This is a great machine if you need to crank out enough dogs for a group or crowd without taking all day. I have an older dogger I’ve had for 20 years that only does 6 dogs at a time and only has 2 temp settings. It takes about 20 minutes to cook dogs well done. It still works fine but you can’t do dogs fast enough for more than 2 or 3 people. It’s just too slow. This one will do the 18 before my old one gets warmed up good. On a setting of only 3 it was way faster than my old one was on high. It really cranks them out. I’m a hot dog cooking fiend now. I like the ability to set the front and back to different settings so you can cook fast then just keep warm. It does take up some real estate Read More

I like the ability to set the front and back to different settings so you can cook fast then just keep warm. It does take up some real estate but fortunately I have a good place to store it when not in use. This will be just the thing for all kinds of gatherings like church gatherings, reunions and family dinners (I have a large family), or just whatever. Obviously it is at home in a commercial environment though I think if you were using it commercially you’d probably want the one with the bun warmer as well (or you could use a separate bun warmer.) I tried using it without the glass cover installed (yes it is glass not plastic) but without the cover there is a little popping of grease onto the counter behind it. So I’d recommend either using the cover or covering the area with something to catch the small bit of spatter from the dogs. The cover is easy to assemble but it is not something that just snaps on and off. It is screwed on. Although removing it is pretty simple and easy. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, cooks many dogs fast, simple assembly
          Cons: takes up a lot of space (as expected)

          This is a very nice set. I thought it interesting that one reviewer knocked off for them being heavy. I noticed how heavy they were also before I even opened the box and mentioned to my wife how heavy they were. But I saw that as a plus. In this day and age where it seems like everything is made increasingly lighter and thinner I’m always happy when on rare occasions I run across something that is still made sturdy. So that they are heavy is a plus to me. I guess it depends on your perspective. The finish on these is great and the colors bright and well executed.

The artwork is very well done and not something that looks garish or amateurish. I can’t find a single negative about them unless it is that they are on the pricey side. But anything of quality costs more these days (when you can even find good quality in an item which you cannot always do). And these are definitely great quality dishes. I don’t think the price is out of order for the quality. We both really like them and have left them out for a bit and have got several compliments on them already. We may just leave them out since we are about to start decorating for Christmas this weekend (yes, the weekend of October 12th). We start early on Christmas and skip decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving. So these fit well with our scheme. We love Christmas. They were packed very well and everything was perfectly intact so I found zero defects of any kind. Read Less
          Pros: High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, well done artwork

          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.
