          The first notable difference you'll see are the rounded edges, making this almost exclusively for opening boxes and cutting cardboard. It fits perfectly into my utility knife. The cut is clean without any jagged edges, especially decent if you're using the cardboard for templates or other projects because of the carbide edge. Can't forget to mention that it's made in the USA.
          Might be a little pricey but for those special projects well worth the price.
          Pros: Sturdy, Strong, Long-Lasting

          Protect yourself from the chilling winter winds and snow while you are out in the elements using your snow thrower. The cab features heavy duty tear-resistant fabric and even reflective strips of material for safety when clearing the snow in the dusk or at night. This snow cab is capable of detaching from the snow thrower so that you can easily store it during the off-season. A convenient pouch is built into the cab so that the winter essentials are kept dry and close. The clear vinyl windows and easy adjustments for almost any snow thrower make this snow cab a must-have.

Noticed that in tightening the mounts to the bar it actually started crushing the bar. Don't really know if that's good or bad.
          Can't say if the product works or not because the rod still hasn't arrived and that was over three weeks ago.
          Give customer service a thumbs down. Read Less

          World's first aluminum combo blade snow shovel. The blade design retains the payload, while the steel wear strip extends the life of the blade. The ergonomic handle is equipped with an oversized D-grip.

          This is a heavy duty, quality built, snow shovel that could also be used in a barn or shed. It's basically all metal except for the orange plastic handle and the collar of which is attached to the handle bar and the actual shovel, which seems to made of an orange rubber like material.
          The shovel has a unique design that slides the snow to the back of the blade. Tried using it as a push shovel which it really wasn't designed for and then using it as a regular shovel, which worked so much better. Mentioned the orange handle earlier making it easy to spot against the snow if it should fall.

          The shovel is heavy, weighing in at 5 lbs. at least, making this less than ideal for those wet snowfalls. If you're in good shape this would be a good shovel for you, otherwise I personally would stay away from it. Read Less

          The True Temper Snow Brush has an innovative head design that removes snow in smaller and hard to reach areas. This head is made of freeze-resistant material that can withstand the harshest winters. The same material is used in car washes.

          The brush itself has four layers of pretty stiff foam fastened together in a unique design and the other end has your typical ice scraper. It also has a rubber like grip about halfway on the handle. Very well constructed throughout.
          Having an SUV, the 36 in. snow brush seemed very appealing. After it snowed I went out to try the brush, the foam composite works extremely well, firm with plenty of flexibility. The distinctive design of the brush-less brush is really a nice feature. It fits into places where your typical brush couldn't go and it's virtually impossible to scratch your vehicle using this end.

          Installing the faucet to hose connector was simply enough. Screw it on the faucet and tighten it lightly with adjustable pliers, or wrench, fasten the hose with the quick disconnect fittings that are on both the hose connector and the hose, connect the nozzle the same way.
          The nozzle has a unique wire lock that attaches to the handle so you can keep the water on but at the same time you can adjust the spray. Another great feature is the fact that you can change the nozzle to any of the other four attachments without shutting the water off or crimping the hose like you would have to do on a standard hose system.

          After a few uses I did encounter a problem with the end piece of the nozzle, where the hose connects, coming off and not being able to reconnect it. Maybe it was a defective piece or not. It does come with a seven year warranty if you want to take that chance. Read Less

          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.
