5.0 out of 5 stars Ladder shin protectors!, July 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Moving big ladders around, and working extensively on ladders, I end up with painful and repeated bruises on my shins. These work perfectly to protect my shins and are quite comfortable to wear. Highly recommended at least for this application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well on a a rocking chair, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Put on a rocking chair to allow use on soft pine floors without damage. It seems to stick well and looks robust. The color blends in well with the floor and dark feet of the rocking chair and so is effectively invisible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice concept nicely executed., July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very nice tool. I have only used it for coarse work -- correcting warped floor structures in antique houses and the like -- but it allows one to do things which would be either very time consuming (hand plane) or ugly (sawzall) quickly and neatly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very bright, high quality light, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very compact but very bright light source; I use it in a pedestal light. Half the lights in the room are LED (pairs of 75w equivalent) and the other half are these halogen bulbs, and the result is a high quality of light with the right warmth. I hope this lasts until good looking 150w equivalent LED lights are available!

no experience with longevity yet

This is a really simple but very useful tool for rough-and-ready framing. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fan which can be very quiet and yet offer comfort, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The fan is indeed very quiet at the lowest speed; it is not moving a lot of air, but enough often for one person to feel comfortable with effectively no noise. I find that at the e.g., 3rd setting it is about as noisy as the average oscillating fan at the slowest speed, and moves about as much air. So, I cannot say that there is a specific improvement in the fan technology other than to have supplied some very useful lower speeds.


HANDy 4500-CC HANDy Ladder Pail

2.0 out of 5 stars Not useful for my applications, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
May be perfect for some applications, but it is very large -- could hold a gallon of paint -- and would be too heavy and difficult to maneuver if full. If not full, the ratio of surface area to volume is too high and the paint dries. Just not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly functional, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very useful for holding reading glasses when woodworking/repair/etc. and not forcibly with the head oriented such that gravity holds the glasses where they were intended. They are perfectly comfortable (i.e., one forgets they are in place). Easy to put on and remove.

Price: $33.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what they should be, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been wearing blue Dickies bib overalls for years for woodworking and house repair, but in the sun they are warm; these are white and also a lighter weight material so much more comfortable than the blues. Con: they don't have a pencil slot in the middle of the bib!
