          Active Ventilation Products Aura Ventilator is our optimum exhaust attic ventilation product line that has a patented engineered design to create CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) of air flow with no moving parts. It is an excellent choice to exhaust attic heat in the summer to reduce hot attic temperatures. And, to exhaust moisture in the winter to keep the attic dry and cool to preserve attic insulation and prevent ice dams. The Aura Ventilation product line is made of durable rust free aluminum. Model AV-14-C2-BL is made up of 3 components: the vent head, collar and flange. Model AV-14-C2-BL is a 14 in. Dia. vent with a 2 in. collar height and 19 in. x 19 in. square flange. It is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in Brown semi-gloss finish. Model AV-14-C2-BL has 144 sq. in. of Net Free Air Space. Its low profile is best used for a sloped roof. The vent head has three concentric cylinders with slotted vertical louvers. When air moves against the louvers of the outer cylinder it is directed to create a circular airflow. The louvers of the inner cylinder face in the same direction as the air movement created by the outside cylinder. This air movement creates a Venturi effect which produces a vacuum or negative pressure to pull air from within the attic space. The vent head has a flat one piece spun lid that prevents rain and snow from entering the vent verses the turbine vent which is open to the sky and allows rain water to enter in “no wind” conditions.

          Bought this roof vent to replace a burned out electric fan. Hired roofer to install in April, so I've had a few hot months to feel the difference. Works better than the electric roof fan. Love that this vent has no moving parts, so nothing to break, and will work for many years. Low profile, and looks nice on the roof.
          Pros: High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design

          Already have a ONE+ battery. This 18-Volt ONE+ cordless sweeper is ideal for clearing hard surfaces, and is designed for easy 1-handed operation to make quick work of those driveways, sidewalks and decks. Best of all this blower will work with any Ryobi ONE+ batteries you already own, Ni-Cad or Lithium-ion battery not included. Work smarter with the Ryobi ONE+ cordless system.

          Ryobi Leaf Blower. One+ 18-Volt 120 mph Cordless Leaf Blower without Battery and Charger is just what I needed for my small yard; and it uses the same batteries I already have with my Ryobi drill, circular saw, and string trimmer.

          Both attractive and multi-functional, this easy-to-assemble Knock Down Plywood Work Table from Belknap Hill Trading Post functions as a temporary or permanent workspace solution. In just 3 simple steps, you can assemble and take apart the 5-piece table in less than 3 minutes with no tools required. Ideal for tight spaces, the table stores flat and out of sight in a closet or under a bed when not in use. Made of strong, 3/4 in. thick birch plywood, the table takes up little room in vehicles when unassembled, so it’s a perfect choice for events and tailgating, too.

          I was looking for a multi-purpose table and my first use was organizing parts while working on a car door/window repair. It's small enough to move around and large enough to be useful for other projects like painting. I also plan to use it as a grooming station for the dog. I'm using a plastic drop cloth over it to protect the unfinished plywood from any damage.
          Pros: Multi Use, Good Shape

          The Wal-Board Tools 8 in. taping knife features a stainless steel blade for strength. The soft-grip handle provides slip-resistant and comfortable use. The knife mounting is tempered aluminum for added durability.

          I was trying to get by just using a spackling knife to apply drywall compound to a few small repairs on the bathroom wall, and around a small taped area where I had to insert a piece of drywall to cover a hole. The spackling knife wasn't working well. I finally bought this taping knife and it did the job. I'm a beginner, and still learning the only way to get things done right is to use the right tools.

          I bought this blade when I bought my new Ryobi 5 1/2 18 Volt cordless circular saw, because I wanted an finer cut on beadboard paneling; the cut was smooth and perfect. So far, that's the only time I have used this blade.

          will the heat rising from the attic turn the fan

          Answer: 
          There are no moving parts, so nothing turns. The outside air movement pulls the hot attic air out through the vent.
