Have tested this along side a digital stick thermometer, which I also purchased from Amazon, & used both to measure various oil temperatures. Never had a problem so far. It's very accurate. Instant readings with no chance of getting my hands burned or my oils overheating. Gotta like that. In addition, you can be quite a distance from whatever you need a temperature reading on & you will get exactly the same reading as if you were up

This stuff never ceases to amaze me.
I have used this stuff for so many different things I can't even keep track of it all.
Sticks to almost anything...smooth or rough surfaces, it could care less.
The backing (outer shell) is pretty tough and will take pretty much any weather.
Rips very easily without the need for any tools.
Like that this is a bit smaller roll at 1 inch by 30 feet long...you still get plenty for your 3 bucks.
I keep one of these in my car, one at home, and one in our trailer as well.
Everyone should have a roll or two on hand.
Recommend for sure!
Update 7/18/2018: The bond is strong, but when used on a thin cord as opposed to a thick one, it seems to unravel after a while. I still like it, and do recommend it, but only for thicker cords.

- Multiple temperature settings
- Built in stand to cool down unit or to secure it while working.
- Nice solid feeling in your hands.
Cons: None so far. Would have liked the attachments in the pictures but that was my fault for not reading the add fully.
I would easily recommend this unit. If this review has helped you make a decision, please click "yes" below. If you have any questions feel

The Helect strainers work GREAT! I'm Chinese, so our family eats a lot of rice. This strainer keeps the rice from getting into the drain, is deep enough to hold quite a bit before it gets clogged, but shallow enough so that it can continue to drain out the sides.
Since I've gotten this, I've only been able to clog the strainer once, and that was from a very thick beef stew. If you clear it once every 1-2 days, you should be good.
The Helect is exactly the same as similar strainers but you get 3 for the same price. Only time will tell if the quality of the stainless steel lasts, but for a well priced product, it's super so far!

That being said, I have use these to drill into soft sheet metal, plastic, cabinetry and glorified cardboard (Ikea-wood) without any troubles. I find the carrying case to be very good for a casual user - it fits easily into the carrying case that my drill came with and is incredibly sturdy. There's no way these drill bits are going to fall from their folder as they slide into the case and are very snuggly held.

I've used this remote outlet now for 2 whole winters; outside in the freezing, wind and snow and it's still working like it's brand new. I haven't even had to change the battery in the remote yet. I can't really say how it is with long rang because I use it through my balcony/patio glass door for xmas lights that are on my balcony; at most 5 feet away but as for durability and value; this was a fabulous buy for me.
So far so good! I had originally been looking for an outside timer for my balcony Christmas lights but I saw this was on sale and ordered it over the weekend. It arrived today and I couldn't be happier. The remote is a little bit on the cheap side but for it's purpose it works fine. I was happy it came with a
Additionally, the remote was pretty scuffed up when it arrived, and was already paired to the receiver, so we're pretty sure it arrived previously used, probably returned for the same problem. Thinking of this, the unit may actually be defective. I may contact the seller to

Was super easy to install, in fact the old shower head was harder to remove then this one was to install. Everything is chrome coated plastic which makes it very light I don't know how durable it will be with being dropped. The flexible hose is stainless steel which I suppose is a must. The mode select is easy

For the average person, 2 batteries is probably more than enough but since i'm using my cordless tools all day long, every day, i've found that 2 isn't convenient.
I've been using this set of tools for many years and even after a couple years of almost daily use, these batteries keep their charge like they did when new.
I've also shopped around to find the best price and Amazon's price on this battery is very competitive.

No other manufacturer compares with Milwaukee IMO. For tool selections, batteries, or durability. . Not one of my 10 batteries or 7 tools, has failed or failed to perform, in the 2 years since I bought my initial Kit from amazon. .
Working in construction.
Received full refund within a week. hopefully next 1 will work

Pro: Cost, drill works fine for drilling the hole in wood, assembling IKEA firntitue, drilling pilot holes and drilling holes in drywalls for anchors decent power for the price
Cons: Cheap plastic feel to drill but what do you expect? Battery life (after drilling four holes in our desks it needed to re-charge the battery. Wish the carry bag had some compartments inside but again for the price what can you expect?
The best way to summarize this drill is that it’s a good drill to have around the house for small DYI things like assembling furniture, cabinets or drilling holes in drywall. Not intended for every day use. If you’re using this drill quite often or plan to build a tree house or fence then get a real one
But i would recommend spending a bit more money and get a larger set. One option is the Dewalt 37-Piece set. Its around $15 and usually goes on sale around $9. It provides 3 times more options than this and you will need all those options because furniture nowadays is coming from all nook and corners of the world with different shapes and sizes of screws. And if you use the wrong bit with the drill, there is a chance it will destroy the screw head and you will be wasting hours trying to sort it out.

1. Test cut on one end. I didn't have a fine tooth blade on my mitre saw so I tried using a course blade and it chipped the one end off unevenly. Definitely use a fine tooth saw/blade. I ended up using a manual coping saw and it worked out great.
2. Sand down the corners so that once it's installed, the sharp plastic corners do not scratch anyone. It doesn't require a lot of effort for the sanding. I just picked up a small piece of sandpaper I had lying around and rounded the corners.
3. When applying it to the shower door, you
But, really, you’re going to want to caulk it anyway. I just used some extra caulking (GE Silicone I Tile & Bath) as an adhesive, ensuring the inner bead was convex. After the caulking dried, the product worked like a charm.
In sum: You’ll need to use caulking to make it work properly, but you’d probably be doing that anyway, so it’s not that big of a deal.

This and most other modern controls use a thermistor type of temperature probe, wires are both black and there is no polarity. If you measure the resistance of the thermistor, using an ohm-meter, it should read about 10K ohms. A thermocouple will measure much less, maybe 50 ohms. If you have a thermistor already, or this is for a new install, then you are good to go.
In my case I was able to carefully

It’s somewhat bulky and heavy not comfortable for my hand.
I’d recommend this for heavy construction work. If you work in the shop find something less intrusive.
Beside that it seems working well ,and the blade stay strait not bending up to 8 feet in the air .

I've recently taken up a new hobbie of model boat building and I needed a small rotary tool with a flexible shaft to do fine work from accurate tiny holes to some fine carving. I didn't want to spend too much on one but I did want a brand that I felt comfortable with for quality and that I trust.
I'm very happy with my decision to purchase this tool especially when I saw the "exact" same unit at a big box store (case and accessories) made with different coloured plastic and branded differently for over twice the price!
Pros of this unit I'd say would be the price, the comfort of the unit in the hand and the ease of the operation. The unit is quiet when operating as well. The first 90
The tool has plenty of power, and can handle abuse. The accessories that come with the tool are okay, they'll work with light use but are as not as robust as those that come with a dremel or are sold individually.
I found the extension piece works, but it can't deliver the same amount of torque as the actual tool does with the bits/accessories attached directly and it can be less than favourable to setup. That said, given the price and what you get, this product works as advertised and is perfectly fine for any project you'd expect to use it on.
The variable speed dial (1-6) is actually an unlimited setting dial, so if you hover between, example, 5 and 6, you'll get the speed between 5 and 6...not 5 'or' 6.
One thing that I wish this had was a longer power cord. The included one is 6 feet, but I would have liked an 8 or 10 foot cord.

I have a Milwaukee kit with an impact driver and a variable speed drill. Kit came with charger and two batteries. I found that having a third is useful and the online source was much cheaper for the exact same branded part.

You can alternate between horizontal only, vertical only, or cross line. Overall 10/10. Also literally came the next day even though it said a week to
One thing can be improved is the magnetic base. It only work one way: positioned in 7-shape with the device sit on top and magnets below. Would be perfect if it can be positioned in L-shape with the device sit on the arm and magnets behind the device.
Great unit, super well built — nice and bright sharp green line easily visible inside during the day.
