Favorites from Fall Fest

We always enjoy participating in the Fall Fest.  Not only do we get to meet the students, but we also get a lot of good feedback on product.  I'll highlight a couple items we heard good things about during the event. 

Klein Tools 55421-BP Tradesman Pro Organizer Backpack (modeled by our own John Cantlin) was a hit especially for students traveling on the Metro. 
Product features include 39 pockets for tons of tool storage. (34 interior and 5 exterior)
Orange interior for easy tool visibility.
Wide opening fits power drills, meters, flashlights, etc.
Tough, durable molded bottom protects from the elements.
Large front pocket easily fits fish tapes.

Milwaukee 6in1 Lineman's Pliers. The Milwaukee Lineman's Pliers are the only tool of its kind on the market with an integrated reaming head to smooth out rough edges of metal pipe. The 6 IN 1 Lineman's pliers features a high-leverage design for maximum cutting power and precision.
  • Reaming head design smooths out edges of metal pipe from 1/2-in to 1-in
  • Bolt cutter threads and cuts #6 and #8 bolts to preferred length
  • Fish tape puller designed for improved in-line fish tape pulling
  • High leverage design for cutting power and performance
  • Laser hardened cutting edges cuts wire, bolts, screws and nails
  • Smooth transition grips minimize wear and tear to improve pouchability

Waterford Fair and Holophane

The Waterford Fair starts today.

The Waterford Fair is the oldest juried crafts fair in Virginia.  The historic village of Waterford welcomes fairgoers from around the world each October for three days of living history, food, handicrafts, and just plain fun. 

This year’s Fair is October 4-6, 2013, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Friends and families, adults and children all delight in lively performances of traditional music and dance; reenactments by Colonial and Civil War-era militia and cavalry; art and photography exhibits, hands-on demonstrations of traditional American crafts by 155 renowned artisans (many nationally known) plus the ever-popular tour of private historic homes.

You can learn more about Waterford and the Fair at their website

We had the opportunity to supply lights for Waterford.  They choose fixtures from Holophane.   It was important to maintain the historical look but deliver modern technology and energy savings.   Look for the 70 watt LED Full Cut off fixtures from Holophane's Arlington series.  Full cut off means the light will not be uplight and eliminate light trespass.

We have some cut sheets here:  Holophane LUM PUL  and Holophane LUM AUL

Enjoy this beautiful weekend and maybe I'll see you at the Fair!
