          The MILWAUKEE M18 REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT CP3.0 Battery Pack provides 50% more power and runs 50% cooler vs M18 REDLITHIUM CP battery packs. This increased performance results in the same power and runtime of a M18 REDLITHIUM XC battery in a lighter and more compact package. The 18-volt battery pack delivers fade-free power and runs substantially cooler through heavy applications, allowing trade professionals to push their cordless tools throughout a wide application range. The REDLITHIUM HIGH OUTPUT CP3.0 battery is fully compatible with all 175+ Milwaukee M18 solutions.

          If you are looking at these you already know the Milwaukee battery driven tools are well made tools. These are a nice addition especially for things you typically hold in one hand like the impact driver or drill. And that is exactly what I got them for. Like the rest of the M18 line they charge very fast and hold a charge well. The very low profile is nice and the lower weight is very nice when you are going to be using the tool for an extended time since that can be tiring. And less fatigue means better tool control. Seems when I get tired that is when I hose things up every time. One thing I did run into is that these are just slightly wider than some of the other M18 batteries I have. As Read More

As a result I had to bend the belt hanger slightly outward on the impact driver and drill to make these fit. But that was a simple task and worth it to make them work. You could remove the belt hanger but I find it handy to this worked for me. Read Less
          Pros: Light Weight, long lasting, low profile
          Cons: slightly wider than others

          This is my first borescope but not the first time I have looked at them. I’m mixed about one that uses a phone for a display. There are some definite pros. The big one being you typically end up with a better quality picture (for less money) and can easily use your phone to transfer videos and snapshots. On minus side you have 2 things to handle while using it making it a little more awkward. I may fabricate a bracket to attach my phone to it. But for now I just had someone hold the phone. I also have one of those suction cup phone holders I could stick somewhere to free up phone hands.

On minus side you have 2 things to handle while using it making it a little more awkward. I may fabricate a bracket to attach my phone to it. But for now I just had someone hold the phone. I also have one of those suction cup phone holders I could stick somewhere to free up phone hands. The camera head is very small so you can get this into some pretty tight spaces (like the one in my photos). I had to slip it into a very tight space to look inside a wall behind my shower valve to see if I had a water leak in the wall. I found it dry fortunately so saved cutting a big access hole on the back side of the wall in a closet for nothing. The app for it was super easy to download and get working. I had that working in less than 5 minutes from starting to look for it to having it working. It’s very simple to use. The light on it seems pretty bright and I was able to get a decent look inside my wall. The probe is long and easy to flex yet stiff enough to hold shape. Because it is so long you can end up with a fair amount of extra to deal with but better that than having it too short. All in all this stacks up well against borescopes with attached displays when you consider the price. It’s Klein so you know it is built solid. It worked well for my use and I have zero doubt I will find many uses for it. I know I’ve had countless times where I said I wish I had a scope right now. The carrying case is a nice addition and it is built with typical Klein ruggedness. The only criticism I might have is no included charger (just a cable). But it uses a standard micro USB charger and I have many of these around the house so I don’t have to look hard to find a charger. So I did not deduct a star for that since I figure everyone has chargers in abundance these days. In all likelihood the charger you use with your phone will work with it (unless you have an apple phone). Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Use, good light, long narrow probe
          Cons: no charger

          These are surprisingly effective for the 1/8 steel rope I got them to cut. When I saw these in person they were smaller than I was thinking so I wondered just how well they would handle the bigger 1/8th cable I needed them to cut. But they do a good job of cutting it. I have been cutting this steel rope with bolt cutters but this is the way to go. It is so much faster and easier and gives a better, cleaner cut. I do have to use both hands to keep from straining but I’m older and have lost a lot of the strength in my hands. When I was younger it would have easily been a one hand operation with this. I can do it with one hand now but I have to work harder than I want at it. Anyways it beats Read More

          This is a nice cord reel compared to the typical 50 gauge reel. I have one that is just that and having a slightly heavier gauge wire and another 10 feet is handy. The reel is easy to operate and the cord keeper is handy for keeping the cord under control as it is played out. This pairs well with a generator when you want something to grab and take to the field to put out and take up quickly with minimal effort. The 4 outlet setup is handy and since you have heavier wire you should be able to support 4 tools a bit more safely. A built in surge protector is a nice touch too.

          Never underestimate the power of a new place to make memories with friends and family. This outdoor chat set is built for 4 to share, and includes a matching coffee table ready and willing to be weighed down with cold drinks and good food. Its fashionable acacia wood framing contrasts spectacularly with the comfortable, weather-resistant cushioning.

          This set turned out perfectly for our medium sized front patio. My wife was looking at a larger wicker sectional but I managed to talk her into this instead because I thought the other was too big for our space. And as it happens it was a winner with both of us. Also the sectional did not have back cushions (as many don’t). I think (and my wife agrees now) that the backs makes these seats more comfortable. We replaced a larger cast aluminum set with this and I consider it an upgrade even though the old set cost over twice what this one did.

          This set turned out perfectly for our medium sized front patio.

Also the sectional did not have back cushions (as many don’t). I think (and my wife agrees now) that the backs makes these seats more comfortable. We replaced a larger cast aluminum set with this and I consider it an upgrade even though the old set cost over twice what this one did. We just don’t need the 6 seats of the old one any more and this fits our area better, is more comfortable and is much easier to move around since the acacia is light in weight. The old heavy set got relegated to the back patio that we don’t really use. We paired it with a Garden Treasures Palm 8x10 outdoor rug and it was an absolutely perfect fit with that rug. And as the pictures show it is Gracie approved and Gracie is a coinsurer of cushions like no other. She always gravitates immediately to the most comfortable seat around. But one of the best things was how easily this went together. I’ve assembled a lot of things like this and this has to be the easiest one yet. Every fitment lined up perfectly so there was no fighting to make things fit. I got through the whole assembly without a single curse word except to say darn that was easy. OK not darn. And that is unusual for me seeing that patience is not my strong suit. It took longer to unbox than to assemble as it was packed really well but I can’t knock that. We picked this from 4 we were looking at and neither of us could be happier with the choice we made. They seem to weather well so far but I went ahead and picked up a set of covers for them since it was easy to find some that fit well at HD. Read Less
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Stylish, easy assembly, Comfortable

          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.

          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.

          Answer: 
          Depends on what bulbs you use. If you use incandescent or dimmable LED bulbs then yes. I just used non-dimmable 100W equivalent LED bulbs because they were about 1/3 the price of dimmable LED bulbs. If you want dimmable make sure they say they are on the box. It will be easy to tell from the price. They cost a good deal more.

          Yes. There is a swivel on the base of the rod at the mounting plate. It just swivels on one axis so you woudl have to line it up with the slope correctly but that is clearly what it is made for.

          Answer: 
          They are covered. The frosting of the glass diffuses the light very well without darkening it like the amber shade light I had before this.

          Answer: 
          A tad ubnder 15 inches by using only one of the rods. This is how I mounted it to an 8 ft ceiling and it is plenty high under it.
