One of the best Shipping Scales I’ve ever purchased

One of the Best Shipping Scales I’ve ever PurchasedWeighmax 2822-75LB postal shipping scale

This scale is perfect for my needs. I use the Weighmax 2822-75LB postal shipping scale to calculate postage for my ebay packages and they are always accurate. It is very accurate as I have tested it against a couple of other smaller scales that I have. I needed something that would weigh heavier items. This one goes up to 75lbs. I’ve had no problems with it so far.

The only thing you have to remember is when you first turn it on, you need to wait 30 seconds before you can put something on it. I would recommend this scale for anybody who needs one to weigh large parcels. 

My X-ACTO ProX Electric Pencil Sharpener

I bought this X-ACTO ProX pencil sharpener 3 weeks  years ago and loved it right away. It sharpens pencils evenly and was fast. Although, it is a tad noisier than others but the others don’t sharpen as well.

When you see the blue light you know the pencil is sharpened. I use this sharpener everyday, and it is a workhorse! It is sturdy and heavy like its built to last a lifetime. A definite Heavy duty sharpener! in my humble opinion.

My new Dremel Rotary Tool

My new Dremel Rotary ToolBlack & Decker RTX-B 3-Speed RTX Rotary Tool Kit

My Dremel 395 failed after about 5 years and I didn’t want a big kit full of accessories since I already had that from the Dremel. The longer you have one of these things around, the more you find yourself reaching for it to do all kinds of things, so I really missed it!

I bought the RTX because of the relatively low cost and its ability to accept the Dremel chuck# 4486. The design appears robust. The on switch at the top is really easy to use. I noticed the 2 Amp motor doesn’t bog down like the Dremels we also have. The only price you pay for the power is that it feels heavier. No overheating problems for us when running on the medium setting. Can’t beat the price either.
