3M Tekk Paint Project Respirator, Medium, P95
3M Tekk Paint Project Respirator, Medium, P95
Price: $27.82

5.0 out of 5 stars Great respirator for DIY projects, July 6, 2014
Excellent respirator for DIY home projects and tasks. Works great for wood staining / poly projects. If the mask is on properly you won't smell a thing (so be sure the room is properly ventilated because you won't realize how bad it smells until you take off the mask). This size M works great for my average size face, even with glasses - sometimes a bit of a pinch on the top of the nose after a few hours, but can be adjusted on the face to avoid this, and otherwise comfortable and unobtrusive.

Instructions and sheets that come with the mask and filters are complicated and detailed. While I understand they need to discuss and warn about harmful substances, a simplified version for the home user would be appreciated, such as with a clear chart showing what filters to use for which uses.

Be sure to remove the 2nd set of particulate filter pads from inside the housings before use, and close them back up until the clear holders snap into place (they won't quite close all the way when the back up set is in there too.)

You can get other filters (and replacement filters) to attach to the mask for other uses, such as the pink round filters for just particulates, which can be used for dusty sanding and cleaning projects.

And you'll get to feel like the Heisenberg of home repair as you work!

Greenfield KGHBW Weatherproof Electrical, Outlet Kit with 1 Gang Box, Cover and GFCI Outlet, White

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent exterior GFCI outlet and box, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent exterior GFCI outlet and box. Strong, sturdy, all metal box, quality (15 amp) outlet, and the company Greenfield was very responsive to my direct questions prior to purchase. Be sure not to screw the cover to the box so tightly that it bites throughout the weather sealing foam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, Lasts Long, May 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use this as an outdoor porch light, leaving the light switch on at all times and allowing the sensor to turn the light on and off. It has performed for nearly three months of constant (nighttime) use, throughout the harsh New England winter.


Pfister 910-9000 Ceramic Valve

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Replacement Cartridge, April 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After some research, I finally learned that this cartridge replaces either of the Pfister bathroom sink cartridges 910-681 and 910-691, for lever faucets. So this 910-9000 (sometimes seen as the 910-900) replaces either the hot or cold side, and you simply remove the clip, flip over the stop-out, and replace the clip to switch it from hot to cold (mine came set for hot rotation, which is what I needed).

There is a video showing how, at the "pfisterfaucets" website at /How-To-Center/how-to-videos/910900.aspx

The valve works great so far - no more drip drip drip. The faucet handle now turns incredibly smoothly, with perhaps too little resistance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Laptop Cooling Fan, September 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good size, good fan circulation (2 speeds), well built, and very quiet. Keeps the laptop cool, as promised. Only drawback is the bright blue LED light on the side, when it is on, which eerily illuminates a dark room - I could do without that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as Shown, May 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The cooling pad I received is not the same as the one shown. I had ordered this as a replacement to fit into a matching Targus laptop stand, and thus needed the one with the curved sides as shown in the image. None-the-less, I tried out this version of this fan, which is thinner and much quieter, but turned out to be not nearly as effective at cooling as the one with the curved sides shown in the image.

I followed the Amazon procedure for notifying them that the image doesn't match the product, but if you are still seeing the image of the silver-grey fan with the curved sides, you can see how effective that was!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Great with 32" 5-in-1 Reflector, March 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Easy to figure out, quick and easy to set up and adjust, solid construction, appears durable. Works great with the Impact 5-in-1 Reflector Disc - 32", even when using the outer-reversible-zip-on reflector cover, as the rubber grip heads of the Manfrotto arm are designed to "expand" and hold various sizes (see image above). Reflectors of slimmer edge-thickness will also slip into and be firmly held by the rubber grip heads.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just an early compilation, December 9, 2011
This review is from: Rush Through Time (Vinyl)
Of course the content is 5 stars! But the product isn't.

I picked up this album back in the 80's hoping it would have some cool live tracks or at least alternate takes. But alas, it is just a compilation put together by the record company, of some of their album tracks from their first several releases. It wasn't worth it then (since I had all the albums already), and as the other reviewer says it is not worth it now except perhaps to a devoted collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as it Should, September 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this in order to use an Audio Technica AT803 lavalier mic with a Zoom H2 Handy Portable Stereo Recorder. The mic has an XLR output and the recorder a stereo mini mic input. (I would suggest getting a mic with a stereo mini plug for the Zoom or for a digital SLR to avoid this issue of needing an adapter.)

The adapter works just fine. The audio input level is normal, with very low noise, and the adapter works as it should. The short length is perfect for my needs, and the quality of the adapter seems to be fine at not flimsy as others have indicated, though I have yet to use it extensively in the field.
