5.0 out of 5 stars The birds like it. The pros endorse it., August 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I can assure you the hummingbirds like this stuff. We use it at a cottage, but we were using some with dye in it. In early June a woman walking the beach and looking at cottages knocked on our door and introduced herself as "the hummingbird professor." She had university credentials and wanted to ask a couple of questions, and asked to watch our hummingbird feeder. She counted the number of birds that came in 15 minute increments. She wanted to know what nectar we were using and told us not to use the stuff with dye. She said use straight sucrose, don't worry about vitamins and minerals, the birds get all they need from natural flowers. They only need energy from the feeders. She specifically recommended the Perky Pet sucrose because she was confident the label was accurate. That wasn't a knock on other brands, she said she didn't know for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent For Their Intended Purpose., August 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you have the tool, you already know how incredibly well these work. A caution though. If you have a beat up lawnmower blade, machete or axe, this isn't where you start - these coarse grit belts are no substitute for a coarse grinding wheel or more often a lot of work with a file and the tool in a vise. The Work Sharp product is a finishing tool. These belts last a long time as a first step on a dull, but not abused, knife blade. Just because they're "coarse" doesn't mean they're for heavy stock removal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough Treatment, Greek Explanations, Extensive References, August 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Impressive that someone can write a 300 page book about a book that's five short chapters. McCartney does a terrific job providing and explaining reference to the original Greek as well as a thorough review of other commenters, both ancient and modern. That's one of the reasons for the Baker series and it's done well. He provides both the actual Greek, in Greek letters for those who are fond of it (a struggle for me), and a more accessible transliteration. So, at times this is a bit of a slog, but worth the effort.

One short, and incomplete example from the classic "faith without works": "Another rhetorical question begins 2:20, this one addressed to the hypothetical interlocutor as 'vain human.' A certain play on words is evident in Greek because the word for 'vain' (Greek word, kenos) also means 'empty.' The one who claims to separate faith and works is an 'empty human' because he or she has an empty faith, just as a body without a spirit is empty (2:26)." (page 161)

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle Design Features Make The Difference, August 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Do the job as they're supposed to. Plastic is better than stainless, the stainless is too hot to touch right after brewing. The top of this basket is plastic as well, so you can pull it out and knock the grounds out without burning your fingers. Tried a couple of cheaper brand X and they were built well enough but the mesh went to near the top and they occasionally leaked and were too hot to handle. These Ekobrews are a tad more expensive, but worth the difference.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Teenagers Or People Who Are OK With Women Portrayed As Stupid and Naive, August 17, 2015
5 stars for writing ability, 1 star for a largely predictable cybercrime/hacker plot and stereotypical characters. Works out to a 3. Wish I'd passed on this one. The main bad guy is another OCD narcissist. His hirelings are sociopaths; one is a psychopath. The mom protagonist is unshakable but so disappointingly and persistently naive and stupid you'll want to close the book. If she doesn't quite get you to do so, the truculent teen will put you over the edge. The final romance makes no sense, but it's trivial.

It's also disturbing when the author misses on technical issues. Twice the "safety" on a Glock handgun is mentioned, but one of the things that's famous or infamous about Glocks is their "safe trigger" rather than a traditional safety.

Didn't rate it down for this but I don't care for what seems to be a trend, putting kids in these novels. Seems like there's an attempt to appeal to both adults and teenagers and the language in this novel is also tempered down accordingly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works On Baked On Cheese, August 3, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great for baked on cheese. Good sponge, good scrubber but there are other options. What this is really good at is baked on cheese, like lasagna pans and especially pizza stones. What makes this a winner is you can get what you've scrubbed off out of the "scrub" part of the sponge easily, it doesn't embed so you either have to throw the thing in the dishwasher and hope or just throw it away. You just sort of bend it and flick the residue off. Someone did a great job engineering this material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Price, Keeps The Sand Out Of The Water Heater, July 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Functional, Amazon's price is good. I use these in a cottage water system that draws water from one of the Great Lakes with sand and clay. At the beginning of the season, the system will clog one of these in less than a week, but after that they're good for a month and keep the sand out of the water heater and piping. I switch to the carbon filters when the algae is bad. We do not use water in this system for drinking or cooking.

Installed the filtration system after having to replace a water heater after about 8 years. Discovered the hard way it had a couple of hundred pounds of sand in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stops Blisters For Runs In The Five Mile Range, July 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bargain price. Works like the more expensive stuff.

I'm a daily, all weather runner. I use this stuff on the inside of my thighs on a long run, and around my toes all year round. Helps prevent chaffing and blisters. For runs in the five mile range, this prevents blisters on my toes. In hot weather, runs over 10 miles, this isn't enough. You could use Crisco too, a lot cheaper, but not very convenient.

Good price, work as advertised. Pretty simple, aluminum, don't buy them for their strength. I'm using these as a simple gate lock instead of a padlock.

Bought these screws to go with Stainless Nylock nuts to replace the OEM steel provided for my aluminum trailer hitch mounted cargo carrier. These are non-magnetic, so I assume they are in fact stainless. Happy.
