          Enough light to notice, without loosing the character of detail in brightness. Over twenty five feet of color changing icicles, making for a perfect fit across the front of my two car garage. Individual icicles vary in length from 4in. to 6in. and are spaced approximately 4 inches apart. All connected to a controller that offers a choice of eight “light pattern” settings that can be selected via push-button or smartphone.

          The Nightingale smart home sleep system is the most advanced and effective sleep product on the market designed to help mask common disruptive indoor and outdoor noises for a better night's sleep. The system blankets a bedroom in soothing ambient sounds with a proprietary sound curve, called sound blankets, optimized for each user's room acoustics. With 2-speakers, the Nightingale Standard unit reflects the sound blankets off the wall enveloping a room up to 150 sq. ft. in a comfortable sound blanket. Nightingale can account for health conditions like tinnitus or noises like snoring in an adjacent room. With convenience in mind, Nightingale features pass through outlets and can be hidden behind furniture with its sleek design. Nightingale is the world's first smart home sleep system that can be controlled by Amazon Echo or Google Home. Nightingale can also integrate with smart home products including Hue, Nest and Ring. The Nightingale sleep system is controlled via the iOS/Android app, Bluetooth or via controlNightingale.com. Through the mobile app and Wi-Fi connection, Nightingale features custom scheduling for sound blankets, nature sounds or LED lights. The eloquently styled Nightingale devices plug into a standard wall outlet and have pass through plug sockets that allow for standard wall plug use. Each device includes a fully adjustable LED light for comfort. Nightingale was created by Cambridge Sound Management, the world leader in sound masking.

          The Nightingale is a well conceived product, with room for some fine-tuning. It feels solid right out of the box and the instructions are easy to follow, even if the print is a bit small. The software for iOS functions well and offers good communication with the device, the Android version is somewhat less accommodating. Setting up an account is a simple process and once the device is added to the account, it is no longer “visible”, a good security measure to prevent others from taking control of your unit.
          Pros: Compact, Easy Installation, Easy to Use

          The Defiant Twin Head Warm White LED motion activated security light works well and looks good doing it. Also, it is among the easiest to install, thanks to the unique “wired” base and “plug in” canopy configuration. No wire nuts here, you just mount the base, connect the supply wires to a terminal block on top of the base, plug in the canopy and tighten one screw.

          Remember when you could make fine-tune adjustments with the simple turn of a wheel? The WEN 3.25 in. Cross Vise provides stable support for your workpieces. Perfect for incremental drilling and other precision work. Attach it to your bench top, your drill press, your work table and more. Made from heavy duty powder-coated cast iron, the WEN Cross Vise grips tightly onto your workpieces, providing over 1900 pounds of clamping force. The 3.25 by 1.25 jaws open up to 3.25 in. wide. Make minor adjustments along either axis with the onboard hand wheels. Each hand wheel features machined 0.1 mm increments, each full turn representing 3 mm of travel. The vise moves a full 5.8 in. (148 mm) along the x-axis and 6 in. along the y-axis (150 mm), making it the perfect companion for woodworkers and metalworkers alike. The fixed jaw features a V-shaped groove to hold round objects either vertically or horizontally while the removable handles help users easily install the vise into tight spaces. With five 1/2 in. mounting brackets positioned around the outside edge of the vises base, the WEN Cross Vise is compatible with the majority of drill press tables on the market. And because its a WEN product, your cross vise comes backed by a two-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer help line all to make sure you remember WEN.

          A simple, easy way to add convenience and accuracy to any drill press. The Wen Compound Cross Slide drill press vise does exactly that. No more re-aligning and re-clamping the workpiece when you you have to drill a series of holes – mount the piece in the vise and move it from one position to the next by just turning a crank handle. No, it will not convert your drill press into a “knee mill” - but it will make drilling multiple holes a lot easier.

          The RIDGID 7 in. Table Top Wet Tile Saw is exactly what the name implies – a lightweight (mostly aluminum construction), self contained, portable tile saw that I can set up quickly and clean up easily. The blade runs true and virtually vibration free, making for clean, chip free cuts. Everything worked just fine on my 13 in. square, porcelain tile project.
