          In my younger years, I never paid much attention to the weight of a tool. A pipe wrench needed to be heavy enough to handle the toughest job, period. These days, I still expect the same toughness – but not the weight. That's where the Milwaukee 24” Aluminum Pipe Wrench measures-up well. The steel jaws are somewhat larger than average, which improves the grip and the 24” frame offers enough leverage to handle just about anything in the 3” pipe range.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Light Weight, Strong, Sturdy

          The tighter the space you need to get your hand and pliers into, the more you will appreciate the unique design of the GEDORE 10 in. Water pump pliers. Unlike the traditional, tongue and groove design, these pliers adjust in finer increments that lock in place with a spring loaded button. This way, you can preset the optimum grip position and maneuver the piers as needed, without worrying about your preset slipping.
          Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight

          The White Rodgers Premium 7 Day Programmable Universal Thermostat is among the easiest to install that I've come across. It comes with well written, detailed instructions and access to a dedicated website, that offers enough information to make anyone feel like an expert. Programming is simple, and as comprehensive as you choose. I have yet to imagine a schedule that would not be accommodated.

          The Bosch 65 ft. Distance Laser Measure easily proved its usefulness the very first time I had measure some 18 feet of distance, without a helper to hold the other end of the tape. Now, I am no longer concerned about keeping the measuring tape from collapsing, and 65 ft. of range is a lot better than 35. I doubt that it will ever replace traditional tools for layouts or bench work, but I am quickly becoming spoiled with the range and accuracy of this lightweight helper.

          The Wayne Waterbug Submersible Utility Pump is a great idea for handling common water projects. Easy to use for everything, like getting water off the pool cover or emptying a hot tub. Just connect a garden hose to one of two discharge ports, plug the cord into a GFCI outlet and you're good to go, pumping all the way down to within 1/16" of the bottom. When finished, wrap the cord around built-in tabs and hang it on the wall.
          Pros: Good Instructions, convenient to use

          I have a coy fish pawn of 3 cubic liters. i need this pump for circulation and waterfall pushing water.
          i am from Israel and we work with 220 volts electric power.
          can I get a suitable pump for my needs?
          2500-3000 GPH will do.

          Answer: 
          This pump is powered by a 115V 60Hz motor, designed for American power standards. I would recommend looking for a pump made to operate on a 220V 50Hz (Europe) system.

          The Husky 1-1/2-Ton Aluminum/Steel Racing Jack with its low profile design will work on vehicles that are low to the ground making it easy to lift and make repairs. The dual piston pump design makes lifting and lowering the vehicle quick and easy. The all-aluminum construction means the jack is light in weight and not nearly as heavy as steel construction lifting jacks. The swivel ball bearing casters make it easy to position the jack before lifting.
