LED lamps add durability to flashlights

A line of 9-mm LED lamps fit most two and three-cell flashlights. They provide a solid-state, durable, weather-resistant bulb with no gases to heat, filaments to break, or glass globes to shatter. The LEDs provide pure-color light, even as battery power dwindles. The low power draw lets batteries last 15-20 times longer than when using incandescent bulbs.

Powered dispensers speed caulk application

Powercaulker dispensers/applicators are used with variable speed, reversible drills to apply sealants, adhesives, and caulking. The device speeds up application rates, reduces labor, and is especially efficient for applications in cold weather. Two models are designed for use with 1/10 or 1/4-gal. cartridges. Repetitive motion is eliminated to cut the potential for carpal tunnel problems.
