          The Milwaukee 15-Piece Utility Blade Set is designed to maximize the user's cutting performance and blade durability in most common job site materials. The hook utility blades are up to 2X stronger and enable users to easily cut roofing, synthetic wrap, insulation and other building materials. The carton utility blades last 5X longer and are designed to minimize user risk of cutting injury while protecting the contents in cartons, boxes and packaged goods. The utility knife blades are engineered to fit all Milwaukee and most standard utility knives.

          Having used many different Milwaukee products over the years I have come to view them as manufacturers of high quality goods. This ulitity blade set reinforces this opinion. The blades fit correctly in my various knives and hold their edge for reasonable amount of time. I found the hook blades useful when cutting carpet and the carton cutting blades good for, as expected, cartons. I also like the blade holder provided with the set, so I can safely store the blades.
          Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Long-Lasting, Strong

          Remember when you had a sack of biscuits. Maximize the strength of your woodworking projects with a pile of 1 hundred WEN Woodworking Biscuits. Comprised of compressed birch wood, these #20 wooden biscuits measure in at 56 mm x 23 mm x 4 mm in size, making them a great partner for any standard biscuit joiner. Our unique, grooved design expands on contact with water-based glues for maximum reinforcement within your joints. Perfect for joining sheet goods, squaring edges, and maximizing joint strength. The resealable bag makes for easy storage between uses while the imprinted biscuit label easily differentiates these #20 biscuits from your other sizes. These FSC-certified biscuits come from responsibly managed forests, limiting their environmental impact.

          Wen wood biscuits are of the highest quality - second to none. If you are new to working with wood biscuits you will find that they are very versatile and easy to work with. I have used them for everything from shelves in bookcases to aligning planks for tabletops. Biscuits also increase the strength of the wood joints to the point that the wood will break rather than the wood joint. I highly reccomend these biscuits

          This stripper is awesome, what a great idea. In the past, I used strippers that could strip gauges between 8 to 18 - even though 99% of the time I only ran 12 or 14 gauge wire. As I get older it was getting harder to see where to place the wire. The Super T-Stripper only has the 2 important gauges, plus I can also strip the outer cover off. I quickly memorized which cutter was for 12 gauge and which one was for 14 gauges - so no more guessing when stripping wire. Wish I had this 40 years ago.

          Great product, saved my back. Every year I power wash my deck, but this year I used a new rotary head which really tore up the wood. I started sanding it with my sander, which was working out fine, but - boy did my back start to ache. When I saw the Sandreach Pro, I knew I had to have one. After about ten minutes, I knew this product was great - it solved my back ache problem.
