Stanley Pivoting Blower Fan 655704

Stanley Blower Fan by Lasko Review This small utility fan is surprisingly powerful, given its rather tiny footprint. It’s made mostly of plastic, including the squirrel cage, which accounts for it light weight.

ACDelco ARZ605 Inspection Camera – SEMA/AAPEX 2012

ACDelco ARZ605 Inspection Camera – SEMA/AAPEX 2012 Technology continues to amaze me, especially when it comes to cameras.
