Oregon 95-900 96-900 21-Inch Gator Mulcher 3-N-1 Lawn Mower Blade For AYP/Poulan
This is by far the best blades I have ever bought! My yard is full of sand, rocks and many other surprises that eat up blades on a regular basis and I have had no issues whatsoever with these. I have been using them for a few months now and with other blades i would have been ready to replace the second time over already. I use fresh mulch to fertilize my gardens and these blades help me make my ...
Dremel 511E EZ Lock Coarse Grit and Medium Grit Finishing Abrasive Buffs, 2-Pack
Expensive, but oh! so worth it
I've become addicted to these buffs and use them to touch-clean soft metal and to give a final brushed finish to metal parts. I do have to agree with previous reviewers that these buffs go quickly, especially when used on sharp edges, but so far, I haven't been able to duplicate the result with any other brush or sander. These buffs allow one to skip at least two steps in final polishing and the ...
Painters Pyramids, 10-Pack
These are great for those paint projects where you can't wait for one side to dry before painting the opposite side. My only complaint would be that it takes a light touch with a paint brush to keep from moving the piece you are applying the finish to. If you are using a spray gun, no problem.
Dremel 512E EZ Lock Fine Grit Finishing Abrasive Buffs, 2-Pack
i use these in all three grades of roughness. great for finishing up things like jewelry, knife blades, etc... handy, fast, nice finishes, hard to screw up. only neg is that they can wear out quickly if you try to make then do all the rough work. but still worth having a few around for the right job.
Freud D0740X Diablo 7-1/4 40 Tooth ATB Finishing Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor, Diamond Knockout, and ...
Good blade you can make better!
After reading several other reviews I thought this information would be helpful. Some users report short-life from this blade. That may be true under certain circumstances, but it usually isn't the blade's fault. Here's how you can get cleaner, safer, smoother cuts and MUCH more life from this or any other good blade. 1- Keep it clean. "pitch" --- that gummy residue from wood--- increases ...
Scotts 2000-20 20-Inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower
a lot of fun!
although the mower gets stuck whenever it meets small branches laying in the grass, I still enjoy it a lot! I am proud and happy to know it doesn't need any fuel or power, I like that it doesn't make much noise, and I like that it is a mild work out (I'm average 35-year old female). I hope you can tell from my review if this mower is for you or not (it has several levels to cut the grass).
Two Cherries 520-5750 Scraper with Prepared Edges
Robert Larson Co
Robert Larson Co
This is my first scraper and I fell in love with it right away. I found some youtube vids that go over sharpening and even though this one comes sharp you will want to sharpen it after use. Scraping is a much more enjoyable process than sanding. There is much less dust and a much higher degree of satisfaction and control. I wish someone would have introduced me to scapers years ago.
Earthwise 50120 20-Inch 12 amp Electric Side Discharge/Mulching/Bagging Lawn Mower with Grass Bag
Very happy so far
We purchased this based on previous reviews and that it was a good $20 cheaper than other websites. This is our first electrical mower and had previously been using a push reel mower. We received this today and set-up was very easy and required no tools. Once we got it set up (and waited for the extension cord to be delivered), I was all set to use it. I ordered the Coleman 12 gauge 100 ft ...

Makita BO4556K 2.0 Amp 4-1/2-Inch Finishing Sander w/Case
This is a high quality professional quality tool. The enclosed switch is a feature that protects the product from dust. This feature was not available on earlier models. It will take a 8.5 X 11 sheet after you divide the sheet into 4 pieces. This is more econmical than buying pre cut sheets.Makita BO4556K 2.0 Amp 4-1/2-inch Finishing Sander w/Case
Wood Flooring with Charles Peterson
Taunton Press, 2010
Today, wood flooring comes in a wide array of types and materials ? from engineered wood to wide planks made of exotic species. But traditional strip flooring (measuring 2 to 3 inches wide) remains the single most popular choice among homeowners. Solid hardwood has a timeless sense of beauty; it lends a natural warmth and comfort to a room that carpeting can?t touch. It?s easy to clean and maintain and adds more value to a home than any other ...
Kreg V05-DVD Pocket Hole Joinery DVD, Building Tables
With this kind of detailed presentation, anyone can build anything. I thought it was an excellent if slow presentation. most of the drilling makes it slow but some of it is necessary to make some points. Many important tips. All in all, very good.

It was a small purchase, but it has paid huge dividends. It made my life so much easier as I refinished my shower. Great product.
Bosch 1293D 1/2 Sheet 120-Volt Finishing Sander USA
This sander is an excellent product. It's very quiet, vibration is to a minimum, easily connects to a vacuum hose, and the sandpaper can be quickly changed. Which hose attachment to get: Confusion exists with all the multitude of adapters to connect this Bosch sander to a vacuum hose. I want to clear this up here and now. To connect this sander to a ShopVac with the smaller 1 1/2" hose, buy ...
Porter-Cable 343K 5-Inch Random Orbit Sander Kit - Hook & Loop Pad
I'm a home woodworker. I've had numerous sanders over the years - Craftsman, Makita, and several Porter Cables. This sander is sufficiently powerful and smooth. Much less vibration than others I have used. The dust collector works surprisingly well although it's a bit hard to get off, which sometimes results in spilled dust. This sander is a good, well-made product.

Hitachi NT65MA2 15 Gauge 1-1/4-Inch to 2 1/2-Inch Angled Finish Nailer
Excellent Nailer. This is my first time using an angled finish nailer as I have never given much thought to straying away from my PC 16ga straight nailer. After trying the Bostich and being completely disappointed with their nails (loading and shorter strips), I decided to try a "DA" type angle nailer. The reviews lead me to the Hitachi. I am amazed with how much I like this gun. The blow ...
Porter-Cable 13592 Standard Replacement Pad for 340 Finishing Sander
Replacement sander pad.
Perfect fit for my Dewalt sander. Took less than 5 mins to change. Once again I have corners. Glad I bought 2 so I'll have a spare on hand. Fits Dewalt and Porter-Cable.
6 pc. Polishing Compound Kit
Good product for polishing.
I bought this set along with a couple buffer wheels to do some polishing of old brass door and window hardware. The polishing guide in the back is adequate, but if you're a polishing newbie, as I was, you might want to read up a bit more elsewhere. Two useful points: use sparingly but frequently (touch to buffing wheel for less than a second and reapply often) and clean your wheel before ...
