          I just bought 5 sets of these unfortunately at another location before I saw them here for $12 less per set. Nonetheless I love them. One light of the ones I bought arrived with the hook and top assembly broken but they appear relatively durable in spite of that so I'm not sure what happened. Obviously they cannot stand too much banging around during shipping though. But I'm not concerned about that and I expect to get it corrected. I bought an extra set beyond what I intend to put up because it is always good to have spares.

So I'm not in a rush to get it resolved before I put them up (which I intend to do tomorrow on Veterans day). I'm closing in on getting up 50,000 lights this year in 2016. These are a nice addition to one more beacon for space born craft. Great thing is they are easy to put up (I'm putting them in a mimosa tree on a 4 channel controller). I built some myself last year using 6 inch acrylic globes, 3" PVC caps, and colored A10 LED lights in 5 colors and they were great but these are just as good and a heck of a lot less work. And the cost less than building them yourself. If only I had seen these last year I would have saved a lot of time. Read Less

          It's nice that this folds up into something pretty compact for storage. And once folded out this is actually pretty sturdy while still being very light. But for my use I'll just have it hanging handily in my building where I can grab it for a quick measurement any time so that is secondary for me. The wheel is very solidly built and heavy enough it grips the surface it is rolling on welly. The smaller wheel on this is obviously not for all types of terrain but for what I got it for (working around the home) it is great. For so many things where I'm not concerned about fractions of an inch this is a great quick way to get measurements over longer distances outside. It sure beats bouncing back Read More

For so many things where I'm not concerned about fractions of an inch this is a great quick way to get measurements over longer distances outside. It sure beats bouncing back and forth with a 100' tape. And for measuring things that are not straight it is really a good fit. For instance, I'm in the midst of laying out a lot of Christmas decorations (50,000 lights and decorations) and being able to just run around the drive with this a drop some form pins at even 10 ft intervals is a time saver for me. The measurements come out very accurate from what I've checked. And it is easy to read even for my aging eyes. I should have got one of these sooner. I can see a lot of uses for this thing. I'm finding quite a few in my current endeavor. Read Less

          What can I say. A good set of locking pliers is one of the most useful things in a toolbox. I've had a flat jawed version of this for 30 yeas and if I had to get rid of everything in the pliers drawer of my toolbox I'd keep a pair of locking pliers and a pair of channel lock pliers and toss the rest. This has got to be perhaps the most used tool in my box for all the years past. I thought a curved jaw set would make a nice addition to it's flat jawed kin. There are places where it is just going to give you a bit more grip and hold on better. I got some use out of one today while doing some improvising on twisting some electric fence wire. You just can't beat a good pair of locking pliers. Read More

I was a little skeptical about that adjustment piece but it seems solidly built and is easier to turn than the screw head on my older flat jawed set. And this size is just a good fit for a lot of what I find myself doing. As usual it is hard to go wrong with Milwaukee tools. Read Less

          I'd gotten a shorter version of this level a while back and being pleased with the quality of it decided going with a 4 ft version of it over the other two 4 foot levels I already had would be a good move to a better quality tool. I am about to be trying to vertically level a 20 ft tall piece of 1.25" EMT and I know this magnetic feature is going to be helpful for that because that is always a tricky operation (holding pole and level while someone attaches guy wires. When I got the shorter version I had not really thought the magnet was good for much except sticking it to a storage location. But I have been surprised at some of the uses I find for it.

          I seem to find myself doing things often where I've said to myself this job would be better done if I had an insulated driver. I've tried things like putting heat shrink on the shafts and that's OK but its not the same. This is a very solid well made set. And the wire strippers on them are a surprisingly well thought out addition. I'd not really thought that was useful at a glance but after using them some I can see the occasional utility of having it there. Personally I'd rather have had a second smaller size Phillips head than the square bit because I think that would see more use but that one does give the set a bit more variety of applications.

          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.

          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.
