          I have been a huge fan of Dremel tools for a very long time, and have several of their tools, all of which I love for the purposes they are made for. Enter the Dremel Sharpening Station, my latest new love! With a small footprint for your workbench, and light weight in case you need to tote it around, it sharpens drill bits, knives, chisel blades, planer blades, and probably a few things I haven't thought of yet. My son is a professional chef, and has a large collection of knives that he has to keep sharp. He has been paying a sharpening service to keep his blades sharpened, and it wouldn't take long doing that to pay for one of these Dremel Sharpening Stations. I expect he will now beRead More

          Alsy 60 in. Brushed Nickel Floor Lamp with Paper Shade and Decorative Faux Wood Base
          Alsy 60 in. Brushed Nickel Floor Lamp with Paper Shade and Decorative Faux Wood Base
          This rectangular shaped floor lamp enhances your decor with a soft glow of light warming up your living space. The paper shade features a crinkle effect that adds texture to the lamp. The decorative faux wood adds a touch of elegance to the lamp. The lamp requires a 100-Watt bulb that is not included and is turned on and off using a pull chain switch.

          For some strange reason, the builder of our home did not install any living room light fixtures. As a result, it tends to be fairly dark. Our only lamps were end-table type lamps, but due to our furniture taking up so much room, we don't have space for end-tables. I got this lamp for our living room, and it solves the problem just fine. Our interior is all Earth-tones, and this lamp fits it well, and would still look great in just about any color themed room. My wife is half-Japanese, and the shade on this lamp looks sort of like a Japanese lantern, so that pleases her very much.

          The QEP Black Widow Diamond Blade is a premier blade for very fast, chip-and wobble-free cutting of porcelain, marble, granite and ceramic tile. The unique diamond-shaped micro segmented laser cutouts around the perimeter keep the blade cooler for superior performance and a longer life. In fact, independent testing has shown that the total average cut speed for the Black Widow blade is 17.14 seconds; faster than other porcelain cutting blades on the market today.

          After an initial problem with a faulty saw blade, the nice folks at QEP sent me a replacement blade that works like a charm. The replacement blade works as advertised and sliced porcelain tile with very minimal chipping. I can't yet speak to the longevity of this particular blade, but about fifteen years ago or so, I'd bought a QEP wet saw, and the less expensive blade that came with the saw lasted a very long time before needing replaced. If that experience is anything to go by, then this Black Widow blade should last me a very long time. I wish to commend the QEP Company for their great customer service and genuine concern for the initial problem I had. Their Meagan Gallagher really wentRead More

          The Silverton Robe Hook by Delta is elegant and of the same high quality that you expect from Delta. You really cannot beat their smart design for installing their fixtures. I bought a set of Kohler fixtures for our bathrooms, and the mounting hardware required you to slip the base over the mounting bracket, then manage to fit a Allen wrench underneath and tighten a tiny screw to secure it in place. Once installed, it was secure, but it was really a pain getting that wrench into place and turning it, since the screw was at the bottom of the base, up against the wall Delta has solved this mounting issue in a much simpler way.

You press the base against the wall at the bottom of the mounting bracket, while holding the base at an angle, then click it in place at the top to lock it in. If you need to remove the fixture later, to paint the walls for instance, getting the fixture off the wall should be a breeze. Delta makes a whole line of bathroom fixtures in the Silverton Collection, and they all give your bathroom a look of understated elegance. Thanks Delta, and Home Depot!Read Less

          The style of the delta Silverton Toilet Paper Holder in Chrome was inspired by the retro silhouettes of classic American design. This look can go well in any bathroom. The pivoting feature provides a unique detail. The result is a look that is both casual and chic.

          I noticed other reviewers commenting that they were having problems with their toilet paper holder pulling loose. It sounds to me that they just didn't have it installed correctly. Delta even includes wall anchors to mount the mounting bracket with, so pulling loose should never be an issue!Read Less

          Yes, but you'll need to drill screw holes through the tile.
           
          Featuring a great power-to-weight ratio, the Paslode 3-1/2 in. Clipped Head and Round Drive Strip 30-Degree Framing Nailer provides powerful performance in a lightweight design. The low-recoil nailer offers a center of gravity that is close to the trigger to provide great balance and to help minimize arm fatigue while working. The depth-of-drive adjustment is located on the nailer instead of at the compressor for optimal time saving.
