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

Anyways, I got this cream to assist with the issue. I cannot say how it would have worked used by itself, but in my case I used it in conjunction with a foot rasp and rubber heel socks. I was hell bent on getting a handle on the issue. Well, this combination of products worked great for me. They completely solved the problem. After a period of only about 2-3 weeks, the open cracks were gone, and my heels were completely healed, with only a few white lines remaining where the open

The “ Armor All “ Dura Vac AA255 2.5-Gallon 2 HP Wet and Dry Vac is very light at 7 lbs. 7.3 oz with all the attachments and the hose inside it, and it has a flat bottom and will not tip over very easily. The hose is just plastic but long enough to reach any area inside any vehicle. The unit is the correct size and shape for both carrying or for placing it inside on the car floor to vacuum. The dimensions are 14 inches tall to the top of the handle and 14 inches wide - front hole to back hole - and 10 inches thick. The on and off switch is a solid
My Dad had the Stinger/Workshop 2.5 Gallon Vac but it was tool tall to fit inside a rubbermaid bin and only had 1.75hp.
WORKSHOP Wet Dry Vac WS0250VA Compact, Portable Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaner, 9.5 L (2.5 Gallon) Small Shop Vacuum Cleaner, 1.75 Peak HP Portable Vacuum
Likewise Shop Vac's 2.5 gallon Vacuum didn't fit in the rubbermaid bin and the design of the base made it tip over easy.
Shop-Vac 2036000 2.5-Gallon 2.5 Peak HP Wet Dry Vacuum, Small, Red/Black
I took a chance on the Dura Vac AA255 and it has exceeded my expectations.
1 - Compact Size: First off it's compact size fits neatly inside a large 77L Rubbermaid
What I love about this vacuum because it met my needs; powerful, came with different vacuum mouth adaptors, and small enough to store in the car trunk without taking too much space. The adaptors that come with the vacuum allows you to vacuum the crevices beside your car seats which is often difficult to do with the vacuums found at car wash and gas stations. I have not yet tried the wet vacuum function as I have not found an opportunity

Previously, I've been using just basic clear packing tape, but I wanted to see how the durability and waterproofing of this clear Gorilla tape would be.
This Gorilla clear tape is thicker than regular clear tape, but it sticks really well to just about all of the surfaces I've used it on, and it's been holding out very well in wet/muddy situations.
It's been working so well that I've been using it to also better manage lighting cables in my RC car.
Overall, this is going to be my go-to clear tape. It's not reinforced like Gorilla duct tape, but it's a great alternative to traditional clear tape.
I used this on a bouncy castle. Seals any slight tears air tight.
The adhesive is not tacky but will stay put when you place it on the material.
If you are looking for strong repair tape, consider this one.

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

The 1/8” accuracy is for below measurements of 12”. I’ve found it spot on or a 1/16” more/ less. Which isn’t half bad across 20 feet. I use this everyday as a Carpenter and have made my workmate jealous as I’ve trimmed and recut 80% less.

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.

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.

Aside from having 15625 possible combinations for a 6 digit code comparing to more than 999999 combinations for the Weiser SmartCode 2 (I am just too lazy to calculate the number for up to 8 digits code) , the Weiser Powerbolt 2.0 beats the Smartcode on everything else:
1) Mechanically, this is much easier to install. Everything is straight forward thanks to the clearer instruction. Better yet, the video that accompanies the listing of this one on Amazon is its installation instruction, instead of a commercial as for the Smartcode 10.
2) Setting the code on this one is a breeze, comparing to the Smartcode 10. The instruction for this lock also has a section for setting the Master Code, instead of having to go online in the case of the SmartCode 10.
3) It takes a

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.
Lighter than the larger batteries included with the drill
Nice addition for us ladies because yes we use them too!

Filled the pond and all was good for 2 weeks and then the rubber started to blister all underwater. The fish actually started to pull the rubber off the concrete. Not great. Contacted the company again and after several go rounds with the sales person I was passed to a manager and then learned that a primer is required for concrete. The is no mention of a primer in any of the instructions I read.
Long story short it took me 2 days to

I have packed everything full and attached it together and while it is heavy, it feels solid and durable. It may not stand up on a job site, but it's perfect for around the house and in the back of the car.

This one uses normal screws instead of allen (maybe it's a US model?). That actually made it easier to install. Thank Bezos Amazon carries the chrome version. It's special order at the local box stores or slow online order. Yay amazon.
The passage levers on the other hand... I've had some issues, but weiser has excellent support in Canada. Call with any issues and they'll send parts quick.
1. Despite having Weiser locks in my home, the new keys used by Weiser are now Kwikset keys, and are thinner than the old Weiser keys. This means that you cannot re-key using Smartkey to match your existing keys. Unfortunately for me, I made the mistake of assuming that a Weiser SmartKey deadbolt could be re-keyed to an existing Weiser lock. I was not aware that when Weiser merged with Kwikset, Weiser chose to standardize on the Kwikset key, not Weiser.
2. Although the instructions supplied explicitly state that you should see a flashing "AMBER" led
