          This gas trimmer is lightweight, produces low levels of noise and emissions and has minimal vibration for user comfort. The shaft has a long reach that lets you access difficult areas. It comes with a 3-year warranty.

          The Ryobi 4 cycle gas trimmer is my first departure from thirty years of 2 cycle tradition in string trimmers. I must admit that so far I am not at all disappointed. The trimmer is well balanced, easy to start and control. The straight, attachment capable shaft offers a good reach for my 6’2” height and makes it easy to swap attachments between trimmer and edger, saving space and money. Another nice feature (especially for my arthritic hands) is the Speed Winder head. No need to take off the head, just thread the line through the head, rotate the spool with a crank attachment and you’re done.

          Forget worrying about the low torque and limited run time of “traditional” battery powered tools, this drill and driver set will make you wish that you had it before starting your last project. The 1/2” drill/driver delivers enough power to handle a 3” hole saw in the low (0 – 550 RPM) range and enough speed for a 1/8” drill bit in the high (0 – 2000 RPM) range. All that, plus a “hammer drill” option with 0 – 32,000 BPM, and one of my favorite features – you can change from “drill” to “drive” and back with a single click of a separate “function collar”, without disturbing the torque setting.

Plenty of power to effortlessly drive any decking screw, as well as finesse when you need it. My favorite little feature is being able to insert the bit into the chuck, without having to pull up the collar. Read Less

          The Rust-Oleum Cleaner and Degreaser concrete cleaner works every bit as well as the label claims it would. Years of oily stains accumulated on the garage floor simply started to dissolve within minutes after I sprayed the floor, even before scrubbing with a brush. Watching the amount of oily residue that came off the floor a half hour later, when rinsed with a pressure washer, made a believer out of me.

          The Kalorik Rechargeable Cyclonic vacuum cleaner is a great little helper for a quick clean-up, especially when you need to reach into tight spaces. The main body is light enough to be managed with one hand, while the articulating suction head easily follows stair steps and the like. Additionally, there is built-in motorized brush that can be turned on or off with the power switch, making it as effective on carpets as it is on solid surfaces.
          All in all, the suction is very adequate for a lightweight, cordless machine and I can see myself becoming less dependent on my full size machine.
          Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Easy to Empty Filter, Good for All Surfaces, Good Size & Lightweight, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Strong Suction

          Rethread a bolt hole or metal rod with this 40-Piece Tap and Hex Die Kit from Vermont American. Each plug-style high-carbon steel tap has a recommended drill-bit size laser-marked on the side to take the guesswork out of hole-drilling. Precision-machined to ensure new threading anchors nuts and bolts securely, these heavy-duty taps and dies are also rust-resistant for long-lasting durability.

          The Vermont American 40 piece tap and die set is a great complement to any “shade tree” mechanic's tool box. It includes taps and dies for seventeen standard sizes, from 4-40NC to 1/2-20NF, plus 1/8-27NPT as well as the necessary tap and die handles, and even a screw pitch gauge.
          Keep in mind that this is a “tool steel” set, intended for threading mild steel, aluminum, brass and similar. Don't abuse it and it should serve you well for a long time. Heck of a convenience, when in the middle of a project you come across damaged thread and don't have hunt down a new screw or specific tap size...

          Answer: 
          The "hand held" remote control and the "canopy mounted" receiver are "paired" by way of matching switch settings. You should be able to change the "non responsive" fan receiver setting to match your remote. That way all three would be "paired" with the remote you are using.
