          How many times have you wished you just had more than a pencil to mark your measurements onto a difficult piece of material? The Milwaukee Inkzall might just be the answer. It comes in four colors, black, red, blue, and green. Writes on just about anything including concrete, wood, PVC, metal, even cardboard (as if that could be ever be a problem), even if the surface is dusty, wet, or oily it will not disappoint. There are also a few other appointments that make it even more attractive, such as a hard hat clip, anti-roll design, and a Lanyard design. If you forget to put the cap back on right away it will not dry out for at least 72 hours. Check out the photo.

          After 5 and half weeks of having a total knee replacement I thought that I'd attempt to install the Pfister stainless steel Cantara 4 hole kitchen faucet. Of course reading the instructions several times made the decision a lot easier.
          The tools needed where pretty basic an adjustable wrench, I was fortunate enough to have an under the sink wrench, a few rags and a small container to catch any water from the supply lines when disconnecting the old faucet. On two occasions my wife had to assist me, otherwise it was a one person job.

On two occasions my wife had to assist me, otherwise it was a one person job. The first occasion was in helping me disconnect the side spray from the old faucet and the other was keeping the new faucet lined up when tightening the nuts from under the sink.
          Installing the supply lines is really simple, being a compression fitting there was no need for compound, putty or tape and the side spray went in with a snap, literally. Removed the aerator turned the water on for 15 secs. Checked for leaks and it was done. By the way there were no leaks.
          This took me several hours, with a few extended breaks and this was coming off major surgery, any one else could of done it in half the time or sooner.
          The faucet has a beautiful stainless steel finish that requires cleaning with only a damp cloth. Pfister guarantees the faucet for life on both the finish and function. They have a web site with installation videos and a toll free number. Sounds to me they have a good support system, though I haven't used it. Read Less

          There are many uses for this tape what with mending hoses, bundling electrical wires, using it to make hand grips for tools/handlebars, plumbing, and many other uses that only the imagination can limit.
          Have used E-Z Fuse Tape on two separate plumbing occasions. The first was a drain fitting leak going into the septic tank, wrapped the tape a few times around the leak and because there wasn't any pressure it stopped almost instantly. That was 3 years ago and still holding. The second time was a pressurized water leak, with a hot water line. The leak it's self was approximately a drop or two a second. That's a pretty good leak.

Wrapped the tape well above and below the fittings while at the same time stretching it to provide the best possible fit. Keeping in mind this was pressurized it took a couple of days to stop the leak completely but you could see the leak becoming less and less as time went on until it eventually stopped. That's going on a month and a half and still holding. Check picture.
          Would I recommend this product, without a doubt. In fact there should be a roll on hand at all times for just those emergencies. Read Less

          Simple to use, once you understand the directions, I tend to make things more difficult than they really are. Like the idea you can change the combination number anytime you would like. Not that you would want to, why make life harder than it already is.
          Not being the strongest lock on the market, they did prove to give you piece of mind from inquisitive people looking at your luggage. For that alone they were worth it.

          The 18” hook and rail hanger is finished in a dark stain. The holes are drilled on 16” centers, if your luck enough to position it on a stud. It does come with hangers if you install it on dry wall. Easy installation of the hangers, a 3/32” pilot hole, screw in the anchor and you're done. The hardware is what possessed us to get the Venetian Bronze, it's exactly the same finish that we have on our kitchen cabinets and henceforth used the hanger as an accent.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, Excellent Quality, Looks Great, Looks High End, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          Stop the slam with this soft close adapter that quietly and smoothly closes cabinet doors. It can be adjusted by the turn of a screw to the desired closing speed and is the perfect retrofit solution. This damper is easy to mount in the upper corner of your cabinet.

          IKEA sells cabinets with hardware that open the doors when you press against the doors. Does this hardware function in the same way? does it set the cabinet doors ajar when you apply pressure to the face of the cabinet doors?

          Answer: 
          Jimmy,
          In my experience in removing glue from vinyl flooring, is to use a spray bottle, wet the glue, let it soak for 5-10 minutes, scrape. This may take several tries but the keyword here is patience, the scraper will eventually remove it.
