    I think there was a thread of similar interest on GIM1. Over the course of the last few months I've found a couple of products which I find to be worth while and wanted to start a thread where we could share our experiences in this regard.

    I want to start by promoting Dollar Shave Club. On it's face the idea seem preposterous. Who wants to order razor blades through the mail? I refuse to pay obscene prices for multi blade razors and when it started getting harder to find blades for my Gillette sensor I simply switched to Gillette Good News disposables. I used them for a few years but was never quite satisfied. I did some price checking and found that the dollar shave club offers twin blade razors at the same price as the disposables so I took the plunge.

    Not unlike Gillette, who gave the handle away and took profits from the blade sales, DSC is making their cash on the vanity items such as shave gel, hair gel, and man face moisturizer. For the same price as a Gillette disposable I get five blades a month shipped to my door, the blades are sharper and last longer.

    Since I work very long shifts I usually have a shadow and shave perhaps seven times a month. Usually not until my beard starts to itch. With that being the case, I only use a razor per month and hoard the other four, but there are options. I could have them send more or fewer blades if I wanted. My plan is to get a pile of them and then just cancel the "membership".

    While the other products are nice, if you want to be a miser stick to the razors only. I like the shave gel but don't have to have it.

    Trip Advisor (It's spelled the way the site spells it)

    The wife is one of the top contributors to this site. We are foodies, and have been traveling to the tropics as well as within the states. This service has been a great asset when planing trips as well as while we are there. The reviewers are somewhat vetted and all posts are moderated. Negative reviews are welcome, just don't be obscene. More often than not we find the reviews of the places we visit to be accurate but the rating system is subjective. For instance, if you drop into the local burger shop because it has a five star rating don't expect Filet Mignon to be on the menu. Likewise if you stop into the local steakhouse with three star rating, don't expect Filet Mignon to be on the menu. A Mortons Of Chicago will always rate high, while a Golden Corral might get five stars too so you have to use your head a little. If you are a hillbilly like me but you like nice places and good food then Trip Advisor is a godsend.

    Uber

    So I was at an eatery, which was selected using Trip Advisor. The tuna ahi could have been fresher so they were rated a three... Anyway I need to get a ride to the show we were going to attend and asked the waitress which cab service I should call. Without hesitation she said "I use Uber". I have heard of Uber but always thought the idea was a bit sleazy. In my mind, Uber was imagined to be a bunch of high school kids driving around in 1982 Chevettes making money after school. The waitress assured me that my ignorant opinion was completely incorrect so I decided to give it a try.

    I was surprised how quickly the first car arrived to pick us up (5 minutes), and I started quizzing the driver, he was driving a late model Chevy Cruze which was in immaculate condition. He said they make $.60 per minute, are vetted for criminal records, and must have their cars inspected in order to become an Uber driver. After the show we used the service again. I'm sure Uber drivers were circling the place when the show let out, but we were picked up within two minutes of our submission. I usually do not let apps have my location but this service allows for curbside pickup so it was well worth it to allow Uber to track me for a few minutes. If you find yourself in a city where you don't want to drive I highly recommend Uber.

    We used Trip Advisor a lot during our 11 state, 6 week trip this last spring. It served us well.

    Gold Toe socks. I get them from Amazon. I wear work boots a lot and like tube socks. These aren't cheap fall down your calf socks. They last a lonnnng time. The elastic is strong. Material is thick, you are getting what you pay for. At least I don't have to pull my socks out of my boots anymore. Added bonus is they are actually sized and really fit well

    Gold toe also makes dress socks. i wear them to the office. i get them in 4-packs or 6-packs at costco very reasonably priced.

    second the recs for uber and a qualified one for trip advisor. TA will give you a lot of information, but a lot of the people who post aren't that experienced. so for example i stated at a european hotel in a smaller city that was not very good but TA rated highly. So its a good place to generate ideas, but not as good as distinguishing between ideas. To use the other poster's idea, you might be unaware that there is a golden corral nearby, so that is good information, but if you go to the golden corral because its rated 2 stars higher than mortons would be a mistake. the same concept applies to other things TA rates, like hotels.

    Milwaukee Tool M12 Drain Snake Auger - FIRST LOOK
    Charles & Hudson



    Published on Jun 14, 2016
    Milwaukee Tool's new M12 Drain Snake is developed specifically for the challenges plumbers, maintenance technicians, and property managers encounter when cleaning fixtures and small drain lines. The product features a new-to-world design that incorporates a fixed shield around the drum, eliminating the potential for the spinning drum to come in contact with the fixture or user. The simple cordless setup of the M12™ Drain Snake frees users from the hassle of wrestling with cords, carrying extension cords, or spending time looking for outlets.

    Indeed good stuff.

    On the topic of razors, I rinse mine with alcohol after each use (or just put some in a glass and toss the razor into that) and blades last forever. Water settles on the edge and rusts, that is what makes them dull. Not some wimpy hair.

    Over the years, I have used so many Philips head screws of all kinds. Most of them were probably drywall screws and the long construction screws. I cursed them year after year when they stripped or when I had to use super-human force on the driver to keep them from stripping. And then I had a time when I had to work between studs and could NOT assert enough force because of the situation. I got muscle cramps from the totally awkward positions I had to use. Note that I have tried many different Philips bits that claim to have the "special" ridges or features to get a good grip.

    I wish I had seen this sooner. For a higher price (about $3.70 per pound) I can buy screws with Torx T25 heads. These NEVER strip. I NEVER have to assert force when driving them. I ALWAYS get good results. Yes, they are ghastly expensive, but I will probably never, ever buy Philips head screws again.

    I used to keep a few Maglites in the house in case of emergency, power outages, that sort of thing. But those things are huge.

    So, I replaced them.

    http://www.fenixoutfitters.com/fenix-tk35-led-flashlight-2015-edt-960-lumens/

    They have a newer model now. More than twice the lumens for an additional $30.
    http://www.fenixoutfitters.com/fenix-tk35-ultimate-edt-2015-led-flashlight-2000-lumens/

    For a smaller carry (backpacking, camping, that sort of thing) I bought this:
    http://www.nitecorestore.com/Precise-P16-960-Lumens-Tactical-Flashlights-p/fl-nite-p16.htm

    The links are to the actual company websites. Great for doing a quick compare with other models to weigh lumens against price.

    If you do some searching, you can find their products at reduced prices.

    I actually got my Fenix on eBay redeeming my ebucks

    Another great backpacking/camping product - https://sawyer.com/products/sawyer-mini-filter/

    It weighs in at around 2 ounces. It's about 5 and a half inches long and about 1 and a quarter inches wide (4.25" circumference at it's widest point).

    I am actually in the market for a line trimmer, edger and leaf blower. Am leaning heavily toward highest amp corded electric, but will consider battery operated. I want to avoid gas because I just don't want to mess with it. They don't last more than a couple of years in Florida.

    ECHO 21" 58-Volt Brushless Mower Review CLM-58V4AH

    If you are an ECHO fan, don't be surprised that the salesman you are talking with will know very little about the battery operated 58 volt line. ECHO's 58 volt line is a licensing agreement and the tools are only available at the Home Depot. None of this is a bad thing, but if you are looking for information on the Battery operated 58 volt line, it will not be on ECHO's main site. These tool are marketed to professionals and consumers through Home Depot and through our testing, this mower is a high end home owner grade mower. The mowers power and runtime are what place it solidly in this category.

    RYOBI GD200 Garage Door Opener Review
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Jul 30, 2016

    The RYOBI GD 200 Garage Door Opener is a 2hp belt driven garage door opener that has expandable ports to allow for many different attachments. The current available plug & play accessories include: Retractable Cord Reel, Garage Fan, Bluetooth Speaker, Garage Laser Park Assist and Carbon Monoxide Alarm. That is on top of a battery backup system that is built in to handle 18 volt Ryobi batteries to operate the system in the case of a power loss. The built in LED light helps to light up a fairly poor lit garage.

    For the price of this system, it is pretty hard to beat! While the units in the stores are set up for a 7 foot door, RYOBI sells and extension kit for use with 8 foot doors. In my opinion, the best part about this garage door opener is the fact that you never know what RYOBI might come out with to add to this system.
