          The workbench is of heavy duty construction with a stainless finish wrapped around it, but as others have noted the packaging is woefully inadequate. The finish on the table scratches fairly easily, and mine arrived with a few dings already in place.
          Assembly is straightforward, but the 8 foot length means it is difficult to turn upside down to attach the legs and subframe, definitely a job for two people.
          After it was fully assembled, I stood back and admired its shiny sleek surface. This was the last and only time I saw it this way. The stainless material scratches very easily, and in a little under a days use it has scratches the full length of it. I’m familiar with stainless work

          The workbench is of heavy duty construction with a stainless finish wrapped around it, but as others have noted the packaging is woefully inadequate. The finish on the table scratches fairly easily, and mine arrived with a few dings already in place.
          Assembly is straightforward, but the 8 foot length means it is difficult to turn upside down to attach the legs and subframe, definitely a job for two people.
          After it was fully assembled, I stood back and admired its shiny sleek surface. This was the last and only time I saw it this way. The stainless material scratches very easily, and in a little under a days use it has scratches the full length of it. I’m familiar with stainless work surfaces as we use them extensively in our animal hospital. This stainless is not a very good grade, and even sliding a 1 gallon jug of liquid across it left some horrible marks.
          An adjustable tray rack is provided, and they also include a stand for a tablet. This stand is flimsy and I wouldn’t trust my tablet on it. A powerstrip is included, and attaches to the front of the table. The cable for the powerstrip feeds through the table via a large hole.
          This bench would make a nice crafting bench, or office desk. It does not stand up to the rigors of a rugged work environment though. The stainless finish not only scratches easily, but shows every fingerprint or mark. Read Less
          Cons: Not Durable, scratches way too easily

          The SentrySafe Alarm Safe is equipped with a loud audible alarm that alerts you to attempted break in. It's built tough to withstand a fire for up to an hour, stand up to flood and storm damage and stay intact after a 1-story fall. It's protection that provides peace from all of life's perils.

          Power for the keypad, and the 2 LEDs that illuminate the safe when the door is open, are provided by 4 AAA batteries (not provided). In the event that the internal batteries run out of power, you can insert a 9V battery in to a port on the outside of the safe to provide power to open the safe and replace the internal batteries.
          A singles (adjustable) shelf is provide, along with a generous size pocket on the door.
          4 very heavy duty bolts engage to keep the safe locked.
          The safe has an optional alarm that can be enabled every time you lock the safe. This sounds if 5 incorrect codes are entered in succession, if the safe is jarred or jolted, or if someone attempts to pry open the safe.
          The safe is freestanding, or can be bolted to the floor for additional security (using the provided lag bolts). Read Less

          The first thing I noticed on unpacking the light is the mounting plate and how easy it makes the light to install. I’ve installed many security lights and they all had wire nuts to attach to the backplate whilst trying to mount the light to the plate. This light comes with a backplate that you make the electrical connection to, then simply push fit the light to the plate and secure with a single bolt. Why has none thought of this before!

          The first thing I noticed on unpacking the light is the mounting plate and how easy it makes the light to install.

This light comes with a backplate that you make the electrical connection to, then simply push fit the light to the plate and secure with a single bolt. Why has none thought of this before!
          The big selling feature of this light is its BlueTooth capability, and it doesn’t disappoint. All the adjustments you normally make on the bottom of the motion sensor have been wrapped up in to a smart phone app (free). This means you simply mount the light, then with your smartphone adjust the detection sensitivity, Dusk to Dawn settings, on times, etc. If you want to change these then you can do so at any time with the app. The app supports multiple lights, and whilst you can name them on your smartphone I especially liked the ability to take a picture of the light in situ and use that to select the light you want to control.
          Super bright LEDs aluminate up to 270 degrees.
          With its optional ‘DualBrite’ setting you can have the light come on dim at dusk until dawn (or for 3 or 6 hours instead) and then jump to full brightness once motion is detected. The brightness is ‘dim’ and ‘full’ mode are fully adjustable from your smartphone.
          The BlueTooth control is really cool. I spent 20 minutes just playing with the smartphone app and adjusting the brightness up and down, much to the dismay of my wife. A security light for geeks, although fully suited for those who identify themselves as normal. Read Less
          Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Motion-Activated, Stylish, Very Bright, Nice Design, Easy Installation

          The Stanley work mat is has a thick cushion to help prevent fatigue. It is perfect to use when standing at a workbench, but can also be used when you need to kneel down. The diamond plate like finish provides traction and prevents slipping. The chamfered edges help prevent tripping against the edge of the mat.
          The only problem I had was where the logo was attached to the mat. It was attached in such a way as the mat would lift up slightly at that corner.
          Cons: curls at corner with logo

          We own two Keurig coffee makers. One makes 4,6,8,10,12 oz drinks, and the other makes 6,8,10 oz drinks.
          When I first tried this coffee I was concerned that is tasted very weak and diluted. Upon looking at the box it states, for best results to set the coffee maker to 8oz servings. I set the coffee maker from 12oz down to 8oz and the flavor was much improved. It is a light (blonde) roast of coffee (100% Arabica Beans), and has a pleasant taste, with no bitter aftertaste. One thing I noticed is these K-cups have a small dimple on the bottom, which none of my other K-cups have. This results in a very small residual amount of liquid in the cup.

One thing I noticed is these K-cups have a small dimple on the bottom, which none of my other K-cups have. This results in a very small residual amount of liquid in the cup. I suspect this traps any fine particles of coffee grinds that slip through the built-in filter, thereby ensuring the smooth and balanced taste. How you like you coffee is a very personal experience, so you really need to try it for yourself.
          I weighed an unused K-cup and it came in at exactly 4oz. In comparison, my Starbucks Pike Place coffee K-cups weigh 6oz unused. Remember to set your coffee maker to 8oz. If, like me, you like a ‘big mug’ of coffee in the morning then this 8oz limitation is going to be a problem. Read Less
          Pros: smooth mellow taste, 80 cups per case, 100% arabica beans
          Cons: only makes 8oz cups

          The Milwaukee Hole Dozer Hole Saw features Rip guard, the strongest tooth form in the industry, backed by the Rip guard limited lifetime tooth break warranty. Each tooth is built with more steel behind the cutting edge for added strength. The Rip Guard warranty on tooth breaks is a first for the hole saw industry. The added tooth strength along with 8% cobalt give added life to the teeth, allowing for increased productivity on the jobsite, as well as continued hole quality. The Hole Dozer includes Plug Jack, an all access slot design that allows for full access during plug removal. The Plug Jack gives access lower into the cup for thick material and higher towards the teeth for thin material. With multiple positions to apply leverage and better plug access, Plug Jack increases productivity and eliminates wasted downtime between holes. For fast, tool-free change-outs, use Milwaukee's universal Quick-Change Arbors. 49-56-7210, 49-56-7240, 49-56-7250 and 49-56-9100.

          The sleek stylish design of this Riosa 2-Piece Elongated Toilet in White provides innovations, maximum performance and water-savings. Beautifully designed for easy installation, maximum flush and water savings, Delta toilets are the smart choice. All Delta toilets feature the exclusive Smart Fit tank-to-bowl connection.

The concealed trap way gives it a smoother, cleaner look. The elongated bowl and chair height allow for greater comfort. The quick-release seat allows for easy cleaning. This stylish design provides maximum performance and water-savings. Another smart innovation is the inclusion of a toilet removal kit. The kit includes items needed to aid in the removal of your existing toilet: a pair of disposal gloves, disposable scraper, highly absorbent sponge, and cloth. No additional tools are required to assemble and install this complete toilet.

But I found the size & shape of the pipe connecting to toilet tank does match the diamension of the T-valve that comes with bidet which matchs most normal toilet. It takes me several hours to search online to find out an alternative T-valve but can not. What do you suggest to solve this headache? Thanks.

          The battery charger is not compatible with 240v. The charger goes so far as to have a label attached to the cord that reads "120 VAC INPUT ONLY"

          The CF325 7.2-Framing Nailer is designed to load and drive fasteners 2-3-1/4 in. in length with gauges of 0.113, 0.120 and 0.131. It is finished in a bright orange for high visibility at cluttered job sites and it's equipped with a depth-of-drive adjustment that resets on the fly. This nailer comes supplied with a Lithium-Ion battery that charges in as little as 30 minutes on the included charger. The battery's extended life lets you drive up to 6,000 nails between charges.
           

          Can you use nails smaller than 2 inches in the CF325?

          Maybe 1-1/2 paslode nails or similiar? I know the specs say 2 inchs to 3-1/4, but was wondering if anyone used 1-1/2 without issue. Thanks

          This nailer works with 2" to 3 1/4" nails (though it is not recommend for 3 1/4" nails in pressure treated lumber)
