          This arrived exactly as described – It appears to be an extruded aluminum tube of the following dimensions36 inches long by ½ inches outside diameter by 1/16 inches of wall thickness so if you looking what is the inner diameter than subtract 1/16 from ½ inches.
          The finish is smooth but not polished as it arrives, but it appears that it should be easy to polish. The end cuts were clean and deburred.
          It is perfect for craft uses or to make spacers or bolt slaves.

          Gutter screws
          These screws are designed to self-drill. I used them to hold gutter screening to the gutter and gutter spouts. They pierced right through galvanized steel edge into the aluminum gutter edge. I did have one hex holder that was too loose for the screws, but switched to a dewalt holder and went to town driving in screw after screw. I also used some of them to fasten the screen to the inside on the back edge against the house and they were wonderful to use. Can't say enough about how well this screw worked! Warning set your drill to the lowest setting for the gutter otherwise you will be striping holes in the thin gutter material.

          I have purchased many knife sets throughout the years and these knives are one of the best that I’ve had. These knives are good quality. The heft and aesthetic of the blades and the block give the impression of knives that have a much bigger price tag. I really like that the whole knife is one complete piece. Knives I’ve had in the past are made with the handle being a separate piece and those would either get water into the handle or the handle would eventually crack or break off. I would buy these again in a second! Although the description says high carbon steel, which is rust resistant, we are taking care to wash and immediately dry our knives.

          Sump check valve
          I am constantly surprised at how seemingly random items can be so much better when you buy a new item. My sump tends to run a lot during an extended storm, which usually happens at night, so I previously could hear the banging when the sump turned off (sump is basically below the master bedroom).

On advice from a friend, who said the previous check valves I had were prone to sticking, I replaced them with these. Now, the cycling of my sumps is nearly silent and pump cycle on average every 5-10 minuts; just a small click. Not sure of their longevity yet, but performance wise, I am EXTREMELY happy; no loud bang every minute during a storm.

          Delta toilet paper holder
          An aid without being too obvious or intrusive, which I wish could be true of more types of accessibility aids. My wife always complain on old one that the spring loaded toilet paper holder is hash on here hands (she couldn’t compress the spring do to carpal tunnel in here wrists). This one looks good, matches well with other fixture in our bathroom, I’m glad that we got this one for our bathroom redo & would certainly add to other bathrooms if opportunity presents itself. Wary nice looking and made of high quality of material.
