          When your eyes require reading materials to be held further away to focus or more light to see clearly, it is time to purchase reading glasses. Other indicators may be blurred vision at normal distance reading, headaches or tired eyes after working. Magnifeye reading glasses provide superb optical clarity. These readers are a great value, offering high quality for a low price.

          These 1.25 magnification reading glasses. are something that is needed in many different areas of the house and garage. I suggest putting a pair in your tool box, tackle box, and on your night stand. The glasses have scratch resistant lenses. The glasses also seem to be built super strongly and have confirmable nose pieces. These aren't a replacement for prescription reading glasses.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Good Size & Weight, Comfortable

          The T-Stripper Wire Stripper line is the leading brand name in the world. Designed for total comfort and wire stripping; the stripper features a Thumb-Valley thumb guide that offers comfort and focuses on kinetic energy for faster stripping. The textured non-slip grips help in reducing stress on the hands and the narrow plier nose facilitates holding and twisting of wires in hard-to-reach places. The Pocket-Locket mechanism holds the stripper tightly when the tool is slipped from the hands and it is color coded for easy reference.

          These Kinetic Reflex T-Stripper Wire Stripper Pliers strip 6-14 AWG wires. The handles are shaped so that these strippers are super comfortable if you are using them all day. The tool can be used for stripping, cutting, looping, and gauging wire. They come with a lock that hold the pliers closed during non-use or when in a pouch or in your pocket. These pliers should last a DIY guy for years and years.
          Pros: All In One, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, nice grip

          This Chrome Vanadium Steel Bit Set (100-Piece) with Case is an all in one set. It has Phillips, torques, and hex in both standard and metric sizes. It also comes with a ¼ inch driver and a magnetic drill driver bit. All these pieces in one easy to find case. Another thing that is super nice about this set is that all the bits are labeled with the relative size. Great addition to any tool box.

          The DEWALT 3/8 in. wood chisel is designed with the professional in mind. The handle is ergonomically constructed for comfort, with a durable metal cap for striking and driving the chisel blade. The carbon steel blade is tempered and hardened to ensure a long-lasting edge and lacquered to protect against corrosion.

          This 3/8 Dewalt wood chisel is a super nice addition to my collection and will likely be the last 3/8 inch chisel I’ll ever need. The chisel is super sharp so it makes a nice clean cut and is very precise. The blade is carbon steel so I suspect it will stay sharp for years and years. The chisel also comes with a protective cover that duals as a hanger that can be hung on a hook or peg board in your garage. The handle is a hard plastic that gives a superior grip.
          Pros: Accurate, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy, protective case

          the doors are around 3/4 of an inch larger than the cabinet all the way around so if you area is only 48-3/8 wide this cabinet won't fit.

          Does the bottom rack use the door for rack wheels to ride on or does it have fixed glides the rack is attached to? Racks that run on the door with wheels are unstable and get dislodged easy and tough to reposition when rack is full of dishes.

          The glass is 27 3/8 inches wide. 71 1/2 inches tall. It is also 3/8 of an inch thick. It sits 1/2 of an inch away from the wall. It can also open on either side of the opening. If I remember correctly the glass weighs about 80 pounds by itself.
