5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for its type, May 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This tank is very nice, with three pre-threaded 3/8 NPT fittings and one 1 1/4" extension which a hose can be fit onto for filling or a dip tube. It's not terribly thick but it is thick enough for it's capacity, feels pretty durable, and seems well made. I haven't installed it completely yet so I don't know if it adds a plastic flavor to the water, but usually LDPE adds a small amount of flavor from oxidization during the manufacturing process, so I plan to follow it with a charcoal taste filter. Usually that does it just fine.

The company is also very good to work with - I ordered two tanks and the shipping service lost one. Class A Customs shipped me a second one immediately and took care of the order claim.

Works great, well made, watch the diameter carefully as it should be within the range you want to pull or hang. As with the other sizes sold here, I've hung multiple cables in this and it works as well as hanging or pulling a single one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious - though on the "less sweet" side, February 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A bit less sweet that I'm used to, but add a smidge of brown sugar and/or some grated carrot (make sure to adjust for the water added with the carrots if you do) and it is really amazing. I make it in a bundt pan often and it makes a great, if slightly crumbly, "cake-bread" too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bosch jigsaw blades are excellent, February 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have switched to Bosch after trying a variety of brands of jigsaw blades and won't look back. These cut longer, don't bend or warp as easily, and go through heavy/hard material like butter. This particular blade is excellent on metal (I've cut stainless and aluminum, up to 1/4" thick with it). One of my staple blades, along with the monster U345XF blade which I used to cut heavy fiberglass assemblies which contain embedded metal fragments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bit for fine millwork - also good for aluminum, February 28, 2013

Typical excellent Freud quality - this bit mills aluminum as well as wood. Cuts are super clean, no tearout when using the proper speed and feedrate. Zero chatter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what you'd expect, August 20, 2010

Great item, simple, durable, and replacable tips are perfect. It comes with the exact sizes I need to handle normal springbars for typical watches and you can get other sizes if you really for some reason need them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great watch, only wish it had second tick marks., August 20, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Tachymeter obscures the hash marks for the seconds between the numerals. This is fine if you don't really care, but if you're timing something and/or counting down, it is nice to have hash marks. The tachymeter is useless for all practical purposes, its just there to look cool really.

The watch itself is fine, I've taken it sailing many times, gotten it soaked in salt water, replaced the straps with NATO 18mm (yes, 18mm is perfect fit for this watch), etc. Its very durable and so far I have zero complaints. The indiglo is a nice feature. It keeps pretty accurate time, as you would expect with a quartz Timex.

Its also very easy to read and looks clean. Once I switched out the straps for a slightly flashier NATO nylon style, I was getting compliments frequently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for what it is, January 6, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is quite interesting and is, as far as I can tell, intended as a primer to the concept rather than a complete recipe. Once you read this book you understand the major concepts at play, can visualize the options available, and understand why some ideas work and others don't. It thoroughly covers major pitfalls, practical lessons from the over 30 years these houses have been actually built (well, centuries if you want to count older methods for building them) and has a good update from the author in the back. I found it VERY useful as I am interested in this method of construction and this book has confirmed my interest while pointing me in very useful directions to get further information.

If you are at all interested in building your own home, take a look at this construction method and understand why there are such huge advantages over standard "clapboard" styles of construction - a high quality earth-structured home will trump a high quality freestanding home in almost every single regard every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product, November 17, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I think this is one of the best hard disk cases you can get. I've had many different types of cases and Macally's consistently hold up to the abuse a mobile hard disk can get. They back up their durability with superior electronics.

I currently have a 250GB 7200 RPM Hitachi drive in this, but I've also run a 320GB 7200 RPM Seagate drive and both of them performed GREAT. Firewire always works, no additional power necessary. USB requires the second port to get the drive to spin up but one of the things I LOVE about Macally is that their power cable is a separate cable, allowing me to use an external USB adapter to spin the drive up before I plug the USB cable into the computer. This prevents some macs and pcs from shutting down a usb port that is demanding too much power. Very convenient. If you prefer the double-ended usb cables, this drive works fine with those too even though it does not include one.

I've used this on an IBM ThinkPad running Linux and on three different Apple Macintosh computers, a Macbook, a Macbook Pro (new model), and an iMac.

It is also such a durable case I never put it in a slipcover. I just toss these in my backpack and go.

Quality, durability, reliability, and protection - in one of the most portable cases out there. Get one, you'll love it.
