          The low-profile Estate Winds is a large fan that stays close to ceiling, making it ideal for great rooms and areas with low ceilings. The vertical line details on the motor housing give this product an updated look that blends right in with casual or traditional decor. This cohesive fan moves a substantial amount of air and puts out plenty of light to perfectly meet the needs of your larger spaces.

          Good Fan, but not without it's flaws

          This fan looks good once installed but it was a bit of an adventure to get this installed.
          Out of the box the assembly was pretty straight forward and was pretty much on par with most ceiling fans. The only difference is that the mounting bracket for the fan is slightly larger than the standard ceiling fixture box. luckily the kit comes with wood screws to assemble screws into the ceiling joist. the trick is to find the stud. If you don't have a stud finder, I would suggest buying or borrowing one.
          The bracket mount was easy enough, but found that the motor did not sit flat in the mount, so it sits slight askew. it doesn't sit flat because parts of the mount are a bracket made from a Read More

If you don't have a stud finder, I would suggest buying or borrowing one.
          The bracket mount was easy enough, but found that the motor did not sit flat in the mount, so it sits slight askew. it doesn't sit flat because parts of the mount are a bracket made from a single plate of metal bent to make the housing. one of the bends was off causing the housing to not be perfectly square.
          Installation of the light fixture to the motor housing was a chore. the clip was damaged due to improper packaging. It was unbelievably difficult to get the two clips to connect. I probably spent more time trying to repair the damage to the clip than it did to assembly the entire fan. I almost cut the clips off and spliced them together out of frustration.
          my last complaint is around the light glass. either the mold is warped or when the glass cooled it warped so it sits crooked on the fixture. mix that with the motor not sitting straight in the bracket and you have a lopsided light. I had to move and rotate to try and get this to look as straight as possible.
          So overall impression that is that the light looks nice and functions well, gives off great light for a room and the fan circulates nicely. but the quality of the of some of the components are not as great as they should be and I spent more time trying to make the fan not look crooked and lopsided.

          This 5 in. x 7 in. Unfinished Picture Frame makes the perfect craft. Opportunity for you or your child. The natural wood color frame can be painted and decorated for a personalized look and also comes with stickers to embellish the design. A great gift. for any occasion, it can be displayed vertically or horizontally to accommodate any photo.

          This was a fun little DIY project I did with my kids. They are 3 and 5, even though the package says for ages 6+. This project was pretty simple and straight forward. it entailed putting 2 nails into each corner of the frame, and each hole is pre-drilled to about 70-80 of the depth needed so your kids only need to finish hammering the nails into the frame. There was also 4 nails used to hold the back panel that holds the picture in place. Easy quick project that probably took about 30 minutes to put together and paint.

Or, set your bake or broil temperatures with Easy Touch Electronic Controls Plus, which are extra-large and easy-to-read.

          We ordered this online and it delivered to our home with no issues. We replaced an 5 year old coil top stove with this new stove. It's a nice compliment to our kitchen and the stainless and black looks nice.
          The glass top does a good job heating pans. seems to do a better job with the heat distribution over coil top stoves. plus that glass is easy to clean. Just follow the instruction manual, especially when it comes to spilled sugar based liquids on the stove top. There is also an indicator on the LCD screen that warns that the cook surface is hot. The Sabbath mode on this stove is nice and convenient and makes cooking on Sundays a little more easy.

          The Brighter, Tougher, Taller Stand Light The M18 ROCKET LED Tower Light is designed to give professionals an area lighting solution that adapts, performs and survives industrial use unlike any other portable work light. The 2130-20 can be setup in seconds with its Max extension 7 ft. high and it collapses down to 40 in. for easy transport and storage. The light head can be extended from 4 ft. - 7 ft. to light overhead work or minimize shadows when casting light downward. Powered by an M18 REDLITHIUM battery packs, it is the only light of its type to offer system compatibility in its power source that is easily removable and replaceable. The 2130-20 is capable of filling large areas with light for extended periods of time, as it provides 2,000 Lumens of high definition light output for in its high mode, 1,300 Lumens in medium and 850 Lumens of output in low mode. It uses high quality LED with a neutral white color and a high color rendering index paired with a Milwaukee designed reflector to produce an even beam pattern. Its reinforced legs are impact resistant and its low center of gravity provides a stable base. The light head is protected by an impact-resistant lens and bezel and it nests into a protective shroud for secure transport and storage. Its LEDs never need to be replaced and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The combination of these technologies offers professionals the highest quality LED lighting solution, on or off the jobsite.

          When I first seen this online I didn't realize just how big it was until I arrived at my house. It far larger than I thought it was considering it's an LED light stand, and it's battery operated. With that said. This is a great light stand. Granted it's not as bright as a shop light, but this is great to have and I'm not limited to power cords.
          This takes the M18 batteries and I've used both a M18 2.0 and an M18 XC battery. one from a drill and one from an electric brad nailer and it worked just fine with no issues. But as the title suggests, batteries are not included so you'll need to have this as there is no power outlet to power this without the battery.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting
          Cons: bigger than expected

          This little projector has some great potential but it is not without it's flaws. I have found that you can load movies on to the SD card, or via USB and project them, though you cannot fast forward or rewind, but just pause, stop and play. It also comes with a drop cloth to be the projector back, you just hang it in the window or wall and you're ready to go. This comes with an SD card pre-loaded with Halloween, Christmas and New Years themes. The Halloween ones are by far the best.

          November 12, 2016
          Answer: 
          No. The large base only allows for the flush mount. the motor is meant to tuck up into the large base. there are no other options for mounting as even the mounting bracket is meant to hold the motor housing in place, and not a down-rod extension.

          No. This will not work with any ballast. You cannot just insert the bulb into the existing fixture, it will not work. you will need to disconnect the ballast and connect directly to the 120v coming into the light fixture. watch the installation video on the site. very helpful.
