3M LeadCheck Swabs, 8-Pack

1.0 out of 5 stars unreliable!, March 18, 2015
Unreliable! I swab several leaded items and none of them turned red or pink. The test card did turn red. I guessing the sensitivity is very low. Remember these are made to test paint and people are swabbing all sorts of things. If it ain't actively leaching lead, and in sufficient quantities, it ain't going to test positive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hot and Cheap!, February 13, 2015
MADE IN CHINA quality. Everything inside this unit is made from the lowest quality parts, that someone just plugged in together. The pump is big and cheap, heat and longevity will be an issue. The low pressure switch is directly on top of the power transformer. So if it developes a leak...poof! I love that all this is stuff in nicely packaged in case, they should have added a fan to keep things cool inside. Sadly the pump inside is not adjustable, so don't expect to be able to adjust the bypass pressure. There is no flow restrictor, instead all the internal water passages provide enough restriction, but I question that, with such a wide range of the smart buddie 50-100gpd. I hear that the flush valve is 300ml, but thats for a 25gpd system...hmm! That with a huge water pump.(e-chen 103-50) which is rated at 50gpd. Weird way to balance system out!!! So far, not including the housing and circuit board, they spent $29 retail in parts.
The great thing about this is that when something goes bad, you can open the unit and swap out the bad part with a quality part!

Denso 673-2308 Ignition Coil, Direct
Denso 673-2308 Ignition Coil, Direct
Price: $58.96
15 used & new from $58.96

5.0 out of 5 stars Good coils!, January 20, 2015
These are the exact same coils as the hitachi aftermarket. Exact same engravings on the side. Just the sticker on top says denso.
Now that does not mean that these are exactly the same as those made for honda by hitachi! Many people, especially the aftermarket crowd want you to think they are all the same, that its to much trouble to change the assembly line, which is not true, and can be the same line with different quality parts used for oem and aftermarket assembly. the only way to tell is to cut one open and verify the electronics and the electrical winding inside.


Turtle Wax T-240KT Headlight Lens Restorer Kit

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor sealant in the kit, January 18, 2015
This isn't a very good kit. Mostly because the uv sealant doesn't last, if it did, that would be great. The pads it comes with are ok, if you are not severely fogged up, if you are, you need some sandpaper. You see, you HAVE TO get all the old factory uv coating off, or it will continue to degrade underneath any type of sealant. If I remember correctly, its called "checkering" in the headlight industry. So get all that off, if you don't, then you can't properly evaluate any headlight restoration kit, as it will continue to degrade and fog up quickly, making you think that your kit sucks. This turtle wax kit is ok, nothing great. It has a lubricate, 2 double side pads to buff your headlights and a polish. It does a fine job at that. Again the problem is the uv sealant. If I were you, I would get some good sandpaper and wet sand your headlights until it looks like its completely ruined, then apply a quality uv sealant. You don't need your headlights to be perfectly smooth, as the sealant will fill in the surface and make the plastic crystal clear.
Many people on the net are have great results using Valspar/Helmsman as a sealant. Lasts up to 2 years and its cheap. Google it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame on Mr Heater for not including the a/c adapter with the heater!, December 23, 2014
Its a bit over priced, I got one for $12 shipped. This should have been included with your big buddy heater!!! Batteries go real quick when fan is on. As an alternative you could just open the heater and put in a standard 3.5mm dc jack for less then a buck and then get a 6v/800ma ac adapter for about $2-3.
Clearly Mr Heater did this on purpose by choosing such a hard to find a/c adapter, to squeeze more money out of us!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Chocolates. If you like Lindt, you won't be disappointed., December 20, 2014
These are pretty good. I enjoyed every flavor. All wally's world they sell for ten bucks. So its not a bad deal. But be warned, theres hardly anything in box. I don't know what happened to the over packaging laws that put almost home cookies out of business years ago. Seems like everything these days is nothing but air inside...

2.0 out of 5 stars Defective by Design, December 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fits and looks great, feels cheap for a $30 case. Although you can find these with a street price of $10. But if you paid full price you might be disappointed in the material, has quite a cheap feel in your hand. The inside has a soft texture so not to scratch your screen. If you like using your compass, gps etc, rest assure the magnet in this case will throw off your sensors calibration. You can recalibrate some sensors, but weather it does permanent damage to your sensor is unknown. When you go to take a picture with the rear camera, you can't fold the cover back, so its awkward to hold the cover partially opened. IF you drop your phone, this case won't protect the 3 exposed edges. So don't drop your phone! The gorilla glass isn't very strong on this phone!!! Can't believe for an original accessory motorola didn't put more thought into this case.

Mr. Heater MH18B, Portable Propane Heater

2.0 out of 5 stars This Heater will make you cry!!!, December 15, 2014
Its okay, puts out a lot of heat, but it goes through propane like theres no tomorrow. What I really hate about the big buddy is how irritating the fumes are to your eyes and the constant smell of toxic fumes. When its on high, you can actually see smoke. So its not as clean burning as I had hoped. Perhaps a catalytic heater would be better. The fan blows cool air straight up, out the top vents. Guess thats good for keeping the insides of the heater cool, as it doesn't blow hot air. The noise the fan makes is a bit annoying, if it was white noise, that would be fine, but its a bit high pitch sound. This heater is big and bulky. I have no idea why its so thick, other radiant heaters are very thin compared to the big buddy!
On low the heater uses the left ceramic grill, on medium, it turns up the gas on the left grill, and on high, both ceramic grills will be on full blast, at times shooting sparks, flames and smoke. And thats using 1 coleman 1lb cylinder. As others have said, these 1lb cylinders do freeze up, which is probably why mr.heater says to use 2 of them when on the high setting. I got tons of condensation. Thank god theres a lot of plastic, or the heater would be all rusted up by now. Big Buddy appears to be well made, albeit overpriced! I don't see how anyone could use this thing indoors!!! And yes, as others have said, on medium this thing stinks!!! Either use it on high or low to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning indoors and do your best to find the highest quality propane you can get, many places are selling you commercial grade propane as hd-5. I serious doubt coleman is hd-5, because you can see all sorts of colors when you burn their gas, meaning it has a lot of impurities. I also bought the 12ft hose, but haven't tried it out yet. I'll update the review if there's anything interesting to report.

Update:
1.I've noticed that when you use the disposable cylinders I get a strong heat output on high, when I use the MH regulated hose and 20# tank I get a weaker output. Clearly the built in regulator and the external one on the hose have different pressures. The fuel mixture obviously is going to be different!!! Not sure how safe that is. But with the disposable cylinder, flames do shootout sometimes while on high! And the flames can reach the fan vents on top! DO NOT carry the heater while its on high and on these disposable cylinders! medium and low settings are fine.

2.Another thing I noticed with when I run the heater on 2 disposable cylinders, the left cylinder always empties first, while the right cylinder only consumed about 3 ounces.

1.0 out of 5 stars High defect rate with the thermo switch., November 10, 2014
All of these bodum kettle are terrible, the thermo on/off switch will fail before you know it. Also the plastic smells like gasoline. Typical of high heat resistant plastics. Bodum customer service is just as bad. Good luck getting them to honor their 2 year warranty....and you'll have to pay return shipping.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tons of firmware bugs, no fixes in sight!!!, October 22, 2014
Before you buy this junk go over to the official foscam forum and see that theres no properly working firmware for any of their cameras, tons of bugs in all of them!!! It has so many problems I can't begin to listed them all. Save yourself a big headache and get a better camera.
