The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers the power to do a wide variety of applications at 1700 RPMs and 350 in. lbs. of torque. Weighing only 2.3 lbs it is extremely portable, great for overhead applications, reduces fatigue throughout the day. At 6.6 in. L this tool has the best access in tight spaces. REDLINK Plus intelligence protects the tool from overloads and overheating while ensuring maximum performance. Using REDLITHIUM 2.0Ah compact and 4.0Ah extended capacity battery packs they deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than competitive batteries.

          A lot more than I expected from a 12 Volt drill. More capacity, with a 1/2” chuck and enough torque to power a 1/2” drill bit through soft materials, at the high speed setting. As for “hammer drilling” in masonry, it’s great for holes up to about 1/4” - especially overhead, where the lightweight is most appreciated. I prefer to use my Milwaukee M18 drill for larger holes. The screw driving mode clutch is predictably responsive across the listed torque range of approximately 18 - 47 in. lbs. Not only does it slip at a given setting, it actually shuts down the drill motor, which will probably save wear and tear on the clutch.
          Pros: All In One, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Powerful

          The M12 FUEL 1/4 in. Hex Impact Driver once again raises the bar for 12V performance with best in class driving speed, power, and size. By focusing on productivity, this Impact Driver gets the job done faster by being over 20% faster in application speed vs. the competition. This tool outputs over 1,300 in./lbs. of torque that allows the user to get more work done by completing a wide range of fastening. Measuring only 5.1 in length allows for unmatched access in tight spaces. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers up to 0-3,300 RPM with constant power output to drive screws faster. REDLINK PLUS Intelligence is the most advanced electronic system on the market, preventing damage to the tool and battery caused by overloading or overheating. For use with M12 REDLITHIUM Compact Batteries or Extended Capacity Batteries which deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than competitive batteries on the market. The 4-Mode DRIVE CONTROL provides greater control over output speed and power for greater versatility by delivering 0-1,300 RPM in Mode 1, 0-2,400 RPM in Mode 2 and 0-3,300 RPM in Mode 3. Mode 4 is Self-Tapping Screw Mode which is designed to reduce walking when starting self-tapping screws as well as reduce overdriving, breaking and stripping out screws.

          This Milwaukee 12V Impact Driver may look and feel like a typical 12 volt driver, but it delivers a lot more power and sophistication than I initially expected. The compact frame makes it suitable for tight quarters, with enough force to drive decking screws and lag bolts. But, that’s only half of the story. It also features a “touch pad” four level power selector, which allows more precise drive control when used for smaller screws, etc. It’s like having a “power driver” and a “finesse driver” in one tool.

          All-season comforter is cozier, softer, loftier better than down. Ultra-soft, microfiber down-alternative shell and filling provide cozy yet breathable warmth and it's machine-washable. Luxury look diamond-box design with double-needle stitching prevents blanket filling from shifting and bunching. Unlike other down-alternative comforters and blankets, Better than Down pampers you with the softness, loft, warmth and breathability of down in hypoallergenic, easy-care microfiber. Versatile, practical design Better than Down's diamond-box construction gives you warmth, comfort and loft of a blanket while preventing the down-like tufts of microfiber inside from shifting. The smooth, piped edging and double-needle stitching create a luxury comforter designed to last.

          This comforter definitely is better than down. Cozy enough for central Florida’s few chilly nights, without being too heavy for seasonal temperatures. The microfiber shell fabric feels soft and natural, while the diamond shaped box stitching keeps the fluffy fill from shifting. All in all, it is a good, all season comforter that even my cat approves of, making it her favorite place to nap on from the day I put it on the bed.

          After accumulating an assortment of levels bought “one at a time” for different projects, this set of Milwaukee levels has made me wish I had considered investing in a “matched set” long ago. All of the Redstick Box levels in this set are built alike – except for length. So, whether you need to use the 24 in., 48 in. or 78 in., you can expect familiar feel and predictable accuracy from the rugged design and easy to read vials. The 10 in. Block Torpedo is equally rugged and it includes a unique rotating bezel vial, that allows setting or checking angles with the level.

          Good general purpose gloves. They fit snugly and hold up well for most cleaning, painting and gardening tasks. Additionally, they are latex and powder free, so no worries about allergies or making a powdery mess. I have also found them to make good “liners” under fabric work gloves for heavy duty use, combining the protective characteristics of both.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use
