          Would recommend this for bathroom upgrades. Easy to install, the actual wood screw caps were a nice touch, and it's super sturdy. Style is subjective, of course, but we installed this on the interior of our bathroom door (would also work great on a wall) and really like the result.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Looks Great, Nice Design

          High quality cloths make a noticeable difference when cleaning, especially with glass. The set comes with four different color cloths, each for a different application. I use them fairly interchangeably, and I use them exclusively for all dusting and glass cleaning in the house. They do a superb job of leaving behind zero lint, hair, fuzz, etc. or streaks on glass. They wash well and perform just as well after machine washing. Thumbs up.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality

          Rust-Oleum Countertop coating is a one step, chemical and moisture resistant finish that renews and restores laminate countertops, cabinets and furniture. It adheres to laminate as well as vinyl, wood and metal. One can of paint will cover approximately 25 linear feet of an average countertop.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          We read the reviews prior to using this product and new that the application was a delicate process. With that in mind, we approached the application with the utmost care and preparation and purchased the highest quality rollers and brushes.
          It was disappointing and the product was extremely finicky. We ended up doing five or six coats before it finally looked good enough to call it done. Even then, we weren't thrilled with the finished product but at least it made the countertop look more contemporary.
          Don't overwork it the product, don't sand the product between finishes, even if you let if harden for a week. Apply it fast and thick with high-quality tools and you may succeed very well.
          Pros: Dries Quickly
          Cons: difficult to apply

          The Pratt Retail Specialties 12 in. x 100 ft.. Self-Stick Furniture Wrap may be used to help protect items such as tables, chair legs, furniture legs and odd shaped furniture. It is safe for wood and upholstery, and leaves behind no residue.

          Used this furniture wrap during a recent move to protect picture frames, glassware, vases, and other miscellaneous delicate objects. The one roll went a long, long way. It sticks nicely to all sorts of surfaces, but is quite strong -- it doesn't tear or strip off when you're removing. On top of that, it leaves no residue or stickiness on the objects you're protecting.
          It's probably overkill for dishes, glasses, etc. But for vases, artwork, glass cookware it hit a sweet spot. We didn't wrap any actual furniture with it during the move, FYI. That seemed like overkill, but if you can afford a few rolls I'm sure it would protect delicate wood just as easily as it protected glassware.
          Pros: Excellent Quality, High Quality of Material

          After a full year's usage, including lots of outdoor dining and a few larger parties we are pleased to report positively on this patio set. Assembly was fairly straightforward, and the set has required zero maintenance and adjustments even with regular usage. Style is in the eye of the beholder, but we really like this set and have received compliments on it. Comfort is great, and durability seems like a selling point as well. We're a year in, and it looks as good as the day we unboxed it.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, Sturdy, Comfortable, Looks Great

          Will this work for occasional use on a 5gal compressor (capable of 5scfm)?

          It would, probably, but only for patient, sporadic use. This tool is a real gas hog, though. My 20-gallon Husky compressor ran nearly constantly when using this impact wrench.

          Roughly a square foot, but you can stretch it a bit past that. Once it's gone, it's gone though -- no way to spread out the applied product further.
