          This factory-milled board is primed and painted to mimic the natural texture and patina of aged and weathered barn wood. The appeal of reclaimed wood and rustic wood makes this perfect for projects that need a barn siding look. Each new board is pre-finished in gray to give a distressed wood appearance. When used for exterior applications, wood protector sealant is required.

          This realistic looking manufactured barn wood is a great way to get consistency and style for any rustic project you are undertaking. The factory applied finish is very uniform which I think is a good thing, although my buddy thinks it's a little too consistent. It's a matter of personal taste I guess. It comes in a number of lengths and widths which means you can reduce waste and save money by buying exactly what you need and no more. That's not as easy buying real barn wood. And there's no chance of termites or other bugs. I'll buy it again.

          Rubbermaid's 45 Gal. Roughneck Wheeled Trash Can's durable construction withstands intense sunlight and freezing temperatures. Plus bag vents make it easy to remove the trash bag. The hinged lid can open and stay at an 80 Degree angle or swing back all the way against the can.

          This trash "can" (it's really a plastic container) is nice and big, rolls easily and seems strong enough. I must say I was surprised how bendable it is: sorta soft, but it seems to do the job. I've stuffed it a few times with heavy stuff like used cat litter, and wood scraps and it still holds up well. The top is attached firmly so there's no chance of misplacing it which I like. I like the black color because it sort of disappears tucked in next to the house. Time will tell if the plastic rips or not, but so far seems great.

          Crisp, clean and contemporary, Eurocube is a fitting centerpiece for today’s kitchen. Its linear design culminates in a sharp, solid true-square base, giving a unique architectural feel. Design details like the cut-out lever add a lightness of touch and its dazzling finish makes a statement. Eurocube profi spray with a pull-out head is designed for cooks who like to turn up the heat. Mounted on a sprung hose with 360° movement, the head switches easily between two spray options, giving ultimate flexibility and truly professional performance. Developed in response to the rising number of home chefs who demand commercial-grade function, this new version of the Eurocube matches the faucet’s striking looks to unbeatable professional features. Eurocube also features two of GROHE’s trademark technologies. GROHE SilkMove ensures smooth and precise control of the water flow for the life of the product, while GROHE StarLight gives the whole faucet an intense chrome shine, which resists dirt and tarnishing and accentuates its strong lines.

          This kitchen faucet is an incredible looker; so sleek and modern, but with the old fashioned shape of a high end commercial pull-down faucet you might see in a fancy restaurant kitchen. It literally takes center stage in the kitchen it is so beautiful. My wife and I just love it. The spray feature, ease of use and ease of installation are also high points of this faucet. Highly recommended.

          You can't go wrong with this blade if you need cutting power for almost any metal. The first thing I used it for was to trim an I-beam in my house to allow trim boards to better fit. It cut very well and diddn't completely wear down like some other blades I've had. And steel is super hard, so cutting copper or rebar or fencing should be a snap. Highly recommended.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, cuts easily, Strong

          This wood made to look like old barn wood is incredibly realistic. It's new solid wood so there's no problem about being able to use all of it economically and you could never buy real barn wood at this low a price. I'm using it to build a dining room table for my daughters new apartment which has a rustic flair. It should be perfect.
          I've bought real barn wood in the past for decorative projects, but I'll buy more of this from now on. Highly recommended.

          Oh sure, aluminum is pretty soft so this blade would be perfect.
           
          Not sure what type of batteries you like to use most, then go with our HX5 Flashlight, which is compatible with not just standard alkaline AA, but with rechargeable NiMH or rechargeable Lithium 14500's as well (NiMH and Lithium not included). With the Lithium 14500 cells, the lumen output jumps nearly 3 times as bright as with the alkaline battery. Also unique to the HX5 Flashlight is a 2-way clip that makes it easy to clip in either direction on your pockets or even the bill of your hat. Using our Pure Beam Focusing System with Slide Focus, this light can easily transition from flood to spot modes with 1-hand.

          With standard Duracell Alchalide or NmHi, how long will it last before the battery needs to be recharged? Thanks

          Answer: 
          Well as long as you keep fresh batteries in it, it should last a lifetime. Seems real strong and durable and led's are supposed to last crazy long times... Actual battery life depends on how fresh the batteries are and temperature: the colder it is, the shorter they last.

          The D&D TruClose Gate Hinges give you self-closing action, along with dual adjustability for gate weight and closing speed. Super strong engineering polymer and stainless steel construction will ensure rust-resistance of these hinges. The self-lubricating polymer materials used in these hinges mean they are virtually maintenance-free.
           

          What is the maximum gate weight that this hinge will support? Also what is the closing force of this hinge?

          Answer: 
          You shouldn't use this to support any weight, it is for closing the gate/door only. Don't know the technical closing force but is plenty strong to close small gates/doors. I wouldn't use it to close a heavy driveway gate...
