General Tools & Instruments 589 Precision Oiler
General Tools & Instruments 589 Precision Oiler
Price: $10.45
17 used & new from $9.58

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, but tip is a little large, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I filled this with ProGold PG2000. Contrary to some other reviews, I have had no trouble with leakage even though PG2000 is very thin.

The oiler works well to deliver small amounts precisely. Even a partial drop can be easily delivered.
my only complaint is that the tip is a little large. The tip size is necessary for the design, which incorporates a valve at the tip. But for extremely fine work, the tip is just too large.


Hitachi G12SR3 4-1/2-Inch Angle Grinder

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Deal!, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not only is this a great angle grinder, the price is astounding!

The grinder itself is well made, and the side-switch is so much better than the typical "paddle"switch found on competitors. I have bought two of these - one for home, and one that gets heavy daily use on a job site. No problems with either one.

The price would be good if all you got was the grinder, but you also get a CASE and FIVE wheels with it! That's an outstanding value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well made, high quality three-way tap., February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very high quality three-way tap. Rugged, thick material feels like you could drive a truck over it without damage (but I haven't actually tried that). The orange color makes it stand out, even in a dusty or cluttered environment. Whether just adding outlets, or making room for transformers, this tap gets the job done!

1.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Stay in Place - Tiny Suction Cups are USELESS!, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good material, but won't stay put!! These used to be great, but for some unknown reason Rubbermaid changed the design to use USELESS tiny suction cups. It simply does not stay attached, even after cleaning and polishing the sink surface.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable, Easy to install, Easy to use., February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent timer switch! I was tired of having to replace the old "spring wound" timers, which would inevitably begging to "stick" and never turn off. This one has NO MOVING PARTS, so no sticking! And it is a simple press of one button to get the stipulation you want.

Easy to install, especially since it requires no neutral wire. Looks very modern and is easy to use. I do wish it came in " almond" color, but could only find it in white. Even with having to replace the other switches and wall plates so everything matched, the added convenience and reliability made it all worthwhile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, good design!, February 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have bought a variety of reading glasses, and most have disappointed. These are great! They are well made, the nose piece is comfortable, and the spring temples work well.

These are great half frame glasses that allow easily looking "over the top" without having to constantly take them off and put them back on.


Weslo Cadence 10.5 Tread Walking Belt Model Number WLTL98761
Weslo Cadence 10.5 Tread Walking Belt Model Number WLTL98761
Offered by Treadmill Doctor
Price: $99.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality Belt, Arrived Quickly, Instructions Included!, February 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great quality belt, far better made than the original belt. It came with lubricant and general instructions, and was shipped very quickly.

Removing and replacing the belt requires a fair amount of disassembly, re-assembly, and then adjustment to get the belt running properly. Having never done it before, it took me about two hours.

The belt is heavier than the original, with a much nicer surface. The backing seems to be thicker as well.

The most critical part of the installation is getting the "tracking" adjustment set BEFORE turning on the machine. Move the belt by hand, watch for it to move left/right, and adjust the tension mechanism. If careful with this step, there won't be any surprises when you turn on the machine.

The seller has videos and additional instructions on their web site. Tools needed are minimal, typically a screwdriver and a couple of wrenches. Replacement is a pretty simple DIY project that can save hundreds compared to calling a repair shop!


OXO Good Grips All-Silicone Sink Mat, Small
OXO Good Grips All-Silicone Sink Mat, Small
Price: $14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good material, no staining, but cutouts don't work with all sinks., February 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well made and from good material. I had a different OXO model which was a two-piece design, and it quickly grew mildew in between the parts - YUK. These are one, molded piece of silicone. No staining so far, even with tomato sauce and paprika.

Unfortunately the "cutouts" don't work with all sinks. Mine has the drain located in the "corner", and the cutouts are all in the center of the mat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Checks status at 24 hr intervals, doesn't maintain charge if any loads attached., February 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
supposed to monitor and maintain a battery, but after completing a charge it "goes to sleep" and doesn't check the status again for 24 hours. If the battery has any sort of load connected, this charger will NOT keep the battery charged.

Other than that... The charger seems well made and I do like the fact it is waterproof. It did properly charge two batteries I used to test it. But when a small load was added to the battery, the charger kept saying it was "fully charged" until 24 hours later -- when it checked and finally started another charge.

If you have a battery with NO load connected, this charger might maintain it just fine. But if you have any kind of loads attached, even intermittent loads like a bilge pump, it will NOT maintain the battery except when t checks at 24 hour intervals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great daily use pocket knife!, February 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I buy a new one of these every few years, simply because I wear them out from repeated sharpenings. It's always in my pocket, and gets used every day.

Perfect size for a pocket knife, and very light due to the nylon handle. Takes and holds an edge well.

As stated in other reviews, the quality has dropped over the years - but it still rates a solid 5 stars!
