          The Hi-Lo threaded cement board screw performs well most of the time, even if it needs an occasional "back out" and reset to get the head seated flush.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight

          GRK’s R4 Self Countersinking screw has 6 self-contained cutting pockets which act like a router and transport the drill dust away from the edge of the screw hole. They also widen the countersink hole only around the head shape. The screw head top closes the hole exactly, leaving no damaged fibers around the wider area of the head.

          One glance at the "engineered" look of the screw and I was curious, a 100 screws later I am convinced that it is a "better mouse trap". The split point starts easily (even in seasoned wood), the conventional section of the thread drives well, the spiral portion and "self countersink" head complement the works, with a strong hold and flush seating. The star socket is well worth making sure that you have a T-25 bit handy.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Nice Design, strong hold

          The 12 in. Crescent V-Jaw Pliers are a great combination of good design, quality workmanship and convenient size. Designed to grip everything from 1/2 to 2 1/2 in., the accurately machined "tongue and groove" slide easily and hold securely, quickly becoming a favorite "go to" pair of pliers.
          Pros: Durable, Accurate, Strong, Good Size & Weight

A true American icon, it is prized by tradesman and homeowners alike for its utility and durability.

          Can't beat this 7 in pry bar for delicate work. Smooth body and accurately ground ends make it easy to handle in tight spaces, reducing the risk of damage. A welcome addition to any tool box.

          The minute you pick up the Crescent molding bar you will notice fine workmanship - no burrs or rough surfaces to be found anywhere. The good news is that it works as well as it feels, quality all the way through.

          Where can you find the beam angle of this particular model (or any of the PAR38 Philips LED bulbs)? I'm interested in purchasing the 36deg beam angle PAR38 LED from Philips. Does this bulb have a 36deg beam?

          This Brinkmann Propane Tank Gauge features a multi-color dial to clearly indicate remaining propane fuel levels. The gauge is constructed of solid brass for durability. Installation is easy and requires no tools. The convenient gauge will allow for fuel checks without removing the tank.
           

          How do you "perform a leak test" as advised in the final step of the directions?

          Answer: 
          After all connections are made I turn on and shut off the tank valve. This pressurizes the gas lines leading to the burner valves and shows the propane level on the gage. If the level goes down, with the tank and burner valves shut off - there is a leak. Check again in about 10 minutes. If the level on the gage remains unchanged, I conclude that there is no leak.
          Good luck.
