          Works as it should. Not quite as dimmable as the incandescent bulb it replaced but way better than CFL dimmables. And it's full light is instant which is nice. It's heavy but that's not a problem. Hope it lasts for years.

          I've used other brands of sanding pads and nothing beats the Diablo product. The hook and lock (sorta like velcro) backing is very strong, unlike some others, and the sanding surface is pretty strong and lasts a long time. As always the outside edges always wear down first, but the amount of sanding you get with these pads is well worth the price.

          Can't believe I've never had a tool like this before. It makes removing trim; casement, baseboard, molding, etc. so easy and mar free it's incredible. I've only used it for a month but I've already saved tons of money by removing trim that I could reuse. Everyone one should have this useful tool, especially if you're remodeling, rebuilding or changing trim for any reason. It's super tough, has very sharp edges and works like a dream.

          I was amazed how useful and versatile these chisel/files are. What a great idea to combine a flat file, a round file and a chisel into one piece. The file is extremely coarse. I'd like a set that has a file a little less coarse, but these work great. The steel is high quality which means the sharpness of the chisel and the file will last a long time.
          Best of all are the really comfortable and strongly attached handles. I hate chisel handles that are thin, and these are nice and thick. And if you've ever used a file with a handle that comes loose you'll appreciate these.

          This grinder disc is really useful, strong and can do a bunch of different jobs. I've used it to cut and polish brass, shine up old rusted metal and smooth bad soldier joints. Highly recommend.

          Answer: 
          Depends on the sander you have. If you need the universal type with a lot of holes I think a 20 pack is the most you can get and only in 60 grit. But search Homedepot.com and/or ask a home depot associate to check on it for you.
           
          This HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of GE MWF contains a compressed carbon block which provides tremendous capacity to remove and/or reduce impurities and sediment that may be present in your drinking water. The carbon block has millions of active sites on its surface and within the structure which can absorb impurities like a sponge, and can absorb and hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities very similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are getting the cleanest and best tasting water possible. This economical filter will provide you with fresh and clean tasting water and ice cubes.

          I have installed this and water will no longer come out through the water and ice dispenser on the front of the door. I have held the water spigot open for an extended period of time thinking the filter had to fill up first but that didn't seem to to work either. I also reinstalled it and still the problem exists. What could be the problem?

          Answer: 
          Try taking it out and seeing if there is some kind of plastic cap that is blocking the inlet. Also try blowing in the center hole, you should feel air coming out of the wider hole. Lastly, re-install your old filter and see if it still works; if it doesn't then something got up into the filter hole. Try and get it out. If that doesn't work, call the manufacturer. They will get to the bottom of this.

          Answer: 
          Sure, as long as the ceiling is smooth, flat and free from grease, dirt, etc. A clean surface is absolutely required, and the tile must be pressed hard and left overnight before grouting.

          Stop the slam with this soft close adapter that quietly and smoothly closes cabinet doors. It can be adjusted by the turn of a screw to the desired closing speed and is the perfect retrofit solution. This damper is easy to mount in the upper corner of your cabinet.
           

          Would these soft close door dampers work on a door going from the kitchen to the garage?
