Looking At The Oregon Chainsaw Sharpener

If you are in the need of a sharpener, your main priority is probably to find a product that offers professional quality, but that is also easy to use and affordable. An Oregon chainsaw sharpener, you will quickly find out, is all of these things and much more. The following will look at a few of the company’s most prominent products for sharpening chainsaws, as well as a few Oregon chain saw chains as well.

Oregon Chainsaw Sharpener

Different Oregon Chainsaw Sharpener Models

 

The 510A Bench Chain Grinder

The most popular type of Oregon chainsaw sharpener is the 510A Bench Chain Grinder.

 

  • This model has tons of features including a 3,400 RPM, direct drive motor which is powerful enough to be used on a daily basis without wearing out prematurely.
  • It is one of the safer models available, featuring a one way motor operation and a safety shield.
  • In addition, you can count on it to last for a long time as it features a large motor fan which grants it a better cooling capacity.
  • And finally it is extra easy to use, even for beginners, with its specially designed handles and knobs that make changing the settings quick and easy.

 

The 511AX Model

 

Another excellent model of Oregon chainsaw sharpener is the 511AX. This is one of the most versatile models offered by the company as it is capable of sharpening a wide range of pitches. There is even a new grinding wheel adjustment feature in case of worn out grinding wheels. Finally, it features a vice that centers itself which allows for equal grind angles without the need for adjustment. These are just a few of the many features that this product offers.

 

Other Products They Have

 

  • Besides specializing in the sharpener, this company also deals in many other products including chainsaw blades and Oregon chain saw chains.
  • They offer a large selection which is categorized by their size and part number so finding the specific one you need for your model of saw is not difficult at all.
  • In addition to these products, they also sell replacement bars and other essential parts for your saw.
  • Being able to purchase all the chainsaw supplies you need from dealer makes shopping at lot easier and convenient.
  • Shipping Can Be Expensive

 

When you are in need of an Oregon chainsaw sharpener, there are many dealers that can sell you these products. On the Internet alone there are countless stores that deal in them and they typically offer a much larger selection than what you can find in a brick and mortar store. Often times these stores will sell all the protective gear you need as well including gloves, protective goggles, and a helmet. There are, however, a few drawbacks to shopping online. For one thing, you will have to pay shipping charges, and when you are dealing in heavy equipment such as this it can get expensive. You also run the risk of buying the wrong parts, or those of inferior quality.

Finding Ideas to Blog About

Blogging has changed dramatically since the first ‘weblogs’ were created in the 1990’s. They have gone from journal type entries to detailed ways to share ideas, tips, news or industry information. Blogging is a great way for a business or individual to prove your expertise on a subject or connect with potential customers. Blogging has also become an important aspect to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and helps business owners expand their website and build links to specific pages with their desired anchor text.

Ideas to Blog About

Jeff Bullas created a great blog post and Infographic called “Blogging Statistics, Facts and Figures in 2012 that goes into great detail about new blogging stats and the direction blogs have taken in the past year.

We all know how important blogging can be but it is easy to get hung up on a new blog topic.

Here are several ways to get new ideas for your next blog post:

See What People Are Searching for Through Keyword Tools

If you take the time to write a blog post, you want to make sure it will interest someone else. If you are hung up on a what to create your next blog post on, turn to your favorite keyword tool and research a topic. Often times you can find a long-tail keyword phrase that will spark your interest and give you plenty to write about. You may be surprised how detailed some searches related to your industry are. Your keyword tool will give you a good subject (maybe even a title) for an area of information searchers are actually looking for and chances are they are not that competitive to rank in the SERPs either.

If you do not have a favorite keyword tool, you can use Google’s free tool: Keyword Tool. Look up your products or services, your location or even competitor’s names. If you get a lot of results, filter the results to reflect the smaller number of searches first. This can be done in the last column by clicking “Local Monthly Searches” twice. Here you will find the long-tail keywords or blog post ideas you are looking for!

Get Inspired by Other Blog Posts

There is nothing wrong with taking the ideas of others and expanding on them for your blog post. Google has a search engine that allows you to just search blog posts. You can find it here: Google Blog Search and search any topic and find related blog posts.

bloging ideas

There are several ways you can use this to your advantage:

1.) If you have an idea for a topic but need more content ideas, search through different posts to collaborate other ideas of different authors into your own. You can take a tip from one author and add it to your other tips.

2.) If you want to write about products or services for a specific area (location), search for those products or services in another area. You can rewrite the article you find and relate it to the area you are targeting.

Example –> search “Hoover vacuum cleaners in Atlanta” find an article called “Best Floor Steam Cleaners in Atlanta: Hoover MaxExtract” and you can call yours “Boston’s Best Floor Steam Cleaner: The Hoover MaxExtract” and write about the product and relate it to your sales area.

3.) You can also use Google’s blog search to find blog posts you disagree with.

4.) If you have no idea what to write on, just enter your industry into the search box and scan through the most recent topics posted. You may know about a new topic but have not thought to think about writing about it.

Using Google Blog Search for Blogging Ideas

Create A List

Another idea for your future blog articles comes from making a list. Lists can be made up of any topic, thought, products or tips really. They are easy for your visitors to scan and gather information quickly. They are also popular to share on social networking sites. When making a list, think about an area of your business “Top 5 ways to ______” – “5 Things to consider about _____” “5 Most popular ________” and so on. It should be easy for you to create a list about something in your business or industry since you are an expert!

Making a list for a blog article allows you to narrow your thoughts down to a specific concentrated area. Once you create your list, all you need to do is elaborate on each item. Make sure to add a link to two for more information (could be to a page on your site or another blog post) about a topic or two in your list to give your readers (or Googlebots) more options to go from your content.

Geo-target Your Products or Services

Another option to write about is one of your products or services in a specific area. If you target a large city, you may want to write about a neighborhood, suburb or smaller town you offer services or sell products in.

It is important to write about other specific areas your company serves because most of your content on your website most likely deals with the major area you cover. You are missing out on several long-tail keywords that could drive new business to your company. There are so many good reasons to localize your blog. Matt McGee wrote a good article “Why Local Blogging Works” that highlights the reasons you should write local blog articles.

Highlight A Partner or Customer

Responding to a positive action with another positive action is the definition of reciprocity and should be considered when blogging. If you take time to support others, they will be more likely to support you or your business. Yep, that’s right, this can be done through a blog post!

Think about a good experience you have had with another business or strategic business partner and write about it. Showcase their company’s products, staff or services and give your approval and through them a link. Contact that company or individual and let them know about your post. From my experience, they will be thrilled and will help you promote the article too. They will also be likely to help you out down the road whether it be a referral, testimonial or even mention you in their new content (blog article) as well.

You can also take this idea and highlight a customer of yours. Maybe it is a top buyer or a new customer at that. Take time to show appreciation and they will likely do the same for you.

There Isn’t A Wrong Topic!

Blogging should be something a company or individual should do often! The more posts you have the more chances you have to reach out to others, build links and get in front of Googlebots.

If you are stuck on your next blog topic, turn to others for inspiration, use a keyword tool, create a list or highlight others. It’s important to remember there are no wrong blog topics or length.

Which is Better: eBay or Amazon?

In the Battle of Online Marketplaces, Which One Wins eBay or Amazon?

Back in 2009, The Wall Street Journal compared the major online retailers and declared Amazon the winner, saying they had the best overall shopping experience for consumers. eBay came in second place.

The Internet has changed a lot since then, so has the balance of power shifted between these major players? Which is better – ebay or Amazon? And if you’re a seller, should you choose one or both to market your product(s)? Learn more about eBay and Amazon below, see what others think, and cast your own vote.

Which is Better: ebay or amazon?

The big guys duke it out online

Asking online shoppers and sellers, “Which is better: amazon or eBay?” is like asking photographers, “Which is better: Canon or Nikon?” It’s likely to result in a long and passionate discussion that probably won’t change the opinion of the die hard fans on both sides. Each company has its pros and cons.

online marketplaces

Both of these Internet giants started their reign around the same time – Amazon was founded in 1994 and eBay was founded a year later in 1995 – and both have expanded their focus significantly since their launch. eBay initially began as an auction site known as Auction Web. Amazon started as an online bookstore. Now both provide a place for buyers and sellers to find millions of products at prices that many retailers have a hard time matching.

Between the two, Amazon wins the crown for highest revenue. According to Wikipedia, Amazon collected $48.07 billion in revenue in 2011, compared to $11.65 billion for eBay. Amazon also wins when it comes to traffic. In January 2013, Quantcast reported 90 million monthly visitors for Amazon, compared to 47 million for eBay.

But Amazon loses when it comes to net income. The retailer sells and ships millions of products, requiring a huge workforce and relying on incredible volume to generate massive revenue on the slimmest of margins. eBay, on the other hand, acts as a matchmaker between sellers and buyers “connecting buyers and sellers globally” and doesn’t have to maintain inventory or actually sell anything. As a result, eBay has a smaller workforce and a much wider profit margin. In 2011, eBay chalked up 3.229 billion in net income, compared to $631 million in net income for Amazon.

Both make it easy for both big and small retailers to sell through their platform. eBay has been aggressively wooing big names like Barnes & Noble, Toys R Us and Neiman Marcus to their platform, touting the fact that, unlike Amazon, they don’t carry inventory and aren’t in competition with their partners.

For online shoppers, both sites offer buyers the opportunity to find new, used, refurbished, vintage and collectible products offered by sellers around the world. For merchants, both sites offer individuals and companies the chance to find more customers through the massive popularity of the sites. So which one is better?

It depends on what you’re buying or selling. For unique, one-of-a-kind and collectible items, eBay offers the ability to get the best deal or the highest price (depending on whether you’re a buyer or seller) through their auction system. For mass market products, Amazon offers a quicker method for sellers to post items for sale, with no need for every merchant to take their own photos and write their own description.

The bottom line is that both have pros and cons. Which one do you think is better?

Electrical Fireplaces and Your Safety

Electric Fireplaces And Fire Safety

Every year, thousands of house fires destroy home and property, and even claim lives. Take steps to prevent fires by making the switch to electric fireplaces.

The Threat of Fire is Real

Each year, thousands of homes, belongings, and even lives are tragically destroyed in preventable house fires. There are many different ways that house fires can be caused, including faulty electrical wiring, natural gas leaks, and unattended open flame like candles and hearths. The vast majority of residential fires in the United States happen during the cold winter months, when electricity use is high for holiday lights and heating, and when fireplaces are lit up for warmth and to create holiday ambience. While many homeowners are drawn to natural flame, many of the thousands of seasonal winter fires are started in wood burning fireplaces. This season, consider using an electrical fireplace as a far safer alternative. Electrical fireplaces, like wood burning fireplaces, are practical and provide the same comfort and beauty as an open fire, without the hazardous safety consequences.

outdoor firepit

Electrical fireplaces have a number of built-in and added-on safety features to prevent the hazards of serious fire damage. The primary safety advantage of an electrical fireplace mantle is the lack of real flame. A free standing electric fireplace provides great warmth and creates the same ambience as a wood burning fireplace without the associated risks of fire. There is no burning of wood and no gas involved to spur the creation of out-of-control fires. This could be a wall hanged as well .With the best wall mount electrical fireplace, you will not have to worry about exposure to vapors in the case of natural gas leak. Electrical fireplaces are healthier, since they don’t irritate the linings of the lungs like natural wood fireplaces – they do not emit soot or produce particulate ash. This feature makes electrical fireplaces a much healthier option for people who suffer from asthma or allergies that may be triggered by this type of particulate matter.

You Can Lower Your Risk

The safer alternatives do not sacrifice style.

Electrical fireplaces meet strict safety and testing regulations, and are approved according to safety standards set by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Many models include a built-in thermostat and automatic safety shut-off in the unlikely event that the unit begins to overheat. These built-in safety measures provide you with peace of mind, giving you confidence that you can enjoy an electrical fireplace without fear of electrical fires. Other safety features that come standard on most electrical fireplaces include an outer shell of cool protective safety glass to prevent accidental burns. This feature is crucial for keeping pets and small children safe from accidentally touching the heating element, which might otherwise result in serious burns.

 

Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for safety. Many electric fireplaces are designed with classic and elegant screens and other decorative features. You can be proud to display a quality electrical fireplace in your home, and achieve the cozy winter atmosphere with a far safer heating product. You can have warmth, safety, and beauty without the all of the risks posed by a wood burning fireplace. An electric fireplace provides unmatched quality, safety, utility, and beauty. Consider making the switch from a wood burning fireplace to an electric fireplace heater and prevent your home from becoming one of the many that will go up in flames this winter season.

Best Tech and Non Tech Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys

gift ideas for teenage boys

So, what should I get him?

As a teenager, I know how difficult it is to find gifts for other teenagers, especially when they’re of the opposite sex to you. I can’t help you with advice for gifts for girls, but what I do know is what the average teen guy would enjoy. Here are the top 10 gifts you could get a teenage boy. Of course, every guy is different, so you will have to put some thought into it. For example, if you know he hates music, don’t buy him Snow Patrol’s latest CD.

Even though Christmas is long gone, you will still have to buy gifts for the birthdays of many guys in your life, from brothers to boyfriends. And don’t wait too late to find them a gift, start now!

Here is a Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys

1. Music

gifts for teenage boys

Music is a great choice. Almost all teenage guys love to listen to a good band. The hard part is picking the music. You have a couple options.

1. Buy a gift card for online stores such as iTunes or Amazon.

2. Buy him a CD of a band you think he may enjoy

3. Buy him a recently released CD of a well known band

4. Ask his mom! (Shocking advice, I know)

Some great bands and artists that many guys like are:

U2, Coldplay, Oe Direction,Snow Patrol, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews Band, Breaking Benjamin, Maroon 5 and Three Days Grace. Of course, this is a very small list. Also, it really depends on the type of music guys like. Knowing something about the genres he likes is great. If not, and asking his mom doesn’t help, a gift card will suffice.

2. i-List Music Party Game

The iList music game is perhaps one of the funnest games I’ve ever played. Basically, four players plug their mp3 players or iPods (iTouch’s and iPhones don’t seem to work) into the device with the included cables. You then hit the go button on the device and follow the audible instructions. The first player will then draw a card from the top of the deck. The card may read, “A song title that include’s the word ‘phenonenon’ in it.” Players will then race to find a song in their mp3 player that fits those requirements. First player to find and successfully play the song through the device’s speakers, wins that card. You play to a certain number of cards.

The game never gets boring! 60 cards are included, and that’s a lot. I’ve never gotten tired of the cards, but if you do, you could always make your own up, or find some on the internet.

So, you may be asking yourself, this sounds great, but where can I find it?

Below, you can buy the item from Amazon.com for a price of only $0.50 or less!! That definitely is a steal for a great game. When purchasing, remember to buy 3 AAA batteries, which are not included.

I have given this gift to both guys, AND girls, and I promise you, they love it.

3. Video Games

video games for teenage

Video games are always a pretty good idea if the guy in mind plays video games. There are several steps in finding out what games he likes, or would play.

1. Find out the gaming console he uses. It may be a computer, PS2/3, Wii, or Xbox 360. Do this by asking his friends or family.

2. Figure out the games he has. Again, ask his family, or pay attention to when he rambles on about games!

3. Figure out the games he enjoys. This is the easy part, as most guys enjoy the same types of video games to a degree. First Person Shooters are usually the best choice, by Real Time Strategy games are also a good choice. Below are some of the best games to get. Remember, recently released games can be a great idea, but he may have pre-ordered or already bought the game.

Don’t worry, however, if you get a game he already has. Offer to exchange the game for a different one if he already has it. He won’t mind at all!

****Portal 2 was just released! It is the most anticipated game ever made. Not only does it feature a multi player game mode, but you can play MP across platforms! PC players can now unite with PS3 and XBOX friends! This is one heck of a game, and you know what I mean if you have ever played Portal 1. Buy Portal 2 now!****

4. Gift Cards

Ah! The easy way out… Or is it? While gift cards may be a great idea, you still need to know which store gift card the guy would appreciate. Here are a couple different options you have.

1. iTunes Gift Card – Always appreciated! Who doesn’t like iTunes gift cards? Especially now that you can convert m4a’s (iTunes files) to mp3’s (normal file types) that will work on any mp3 player. You can’t go wrong unless he doesn’t have a mp3 player or hates music.

2. Target gift cards. Target’s a great place, who doesn’t enjoy shopping there? From music, to sports equipment, to video games, Target has it.

3. Regal Cinemas gift cards. Again, who doesn’t enjoy movies? There is a Regal Cinema movie theater almost everywhere in the United States. Any guy would appreciate one of these.

4. American Express Pre Paid. This is if you’re really stuck, and none of the other three will work. These cards are basically prepaid credit/debit cards, almost like a gift card but for every store. Choose the amount of money in one, and the person can spend it wherever American Express is accepted. Cool huh?

So where can you get such gift cards? Well, below are links to buy them on Amazon. All the options I have presented can be found on Amazon, and within 5 minutes, you can have ordered a gift card to go either to yourself, or directly to your recipient. Quite nifty. You will only have to get out your chair once – to fetch the package outside your door. Shopping online is great, and very efficient and easy.

5. iPod Accessories

“An iPod you say? I have one of those!” Doesn’t everyone? If the guy in mind has an iPod, a cool accessory or gadget for it might be a great gift. From chargers, to FM radio transmitters, to exotic earphones, there is a myriad of accessories out there for iPods, and one that is bound to please your gift recipient. Below are some great accessory ideas.

6. Expensive Electronics

kids gifts

All previous items have been generally affordable, under $30. But many of you will be looking for larger gift ideas, for your son, boyfriend, or special someone. I know this lens is aimed at teenagers, but most of the information is relevant to older guys as well. Some electronics items are also best fit for younger such as smartwatch for kids etc .

Guys love electronics. From Wii’s, to iPod Touches, to Cameras, most guys will dig any electronics you give him as a gift. Obviously, you need to find out if he already has the item, but if not, go ahead and get it. Below are some ideas for electronics.

I’d love to hear you remarks, questions and suggestions!

What Is Wind Energy Advantages And Disadvantages

Renewable resources have grown to be very popular by the day because of the continuously growing gasoline rates, the truth that oil will someday run out and the fact that our current energy sources are damaging the earth. Regardless of the location, among the best renewable energy sources available is the wind, but what is wind energy exactly?

what is wind energy

What is Wind Energy

Wind power is basically the act of utilizing wind produced naturally to produce energy which can be used as power. By simply capturing the wind, you are able to power an engine which can be used as a generator to power the home appliances and even the heaters. Using wind in order to make power is rather easy and can be carried out in small or large scales. In fact, wind turbines for the home are very common today and are used to power thousands of homes in North America only. The stronger the air in the area, the more power could be harnessed and can be utilized as an energy.

Wind Power Pros and Cons

There are certain wind power pros and cons to think about prior to building your own DIY wind turbine. One of the advantages of using wind generators for home use is that wind costs nothing at all and is available all across the globe. This is unlike oil and other present energy sources. An additional benefit of using the wind turbines is that the wind won’t totally run out; it is impossible to have a wind power shortage. However, wind power also has drawbacks such as the fact that wind is never constant; several days might have very strong winds whilst other days can be extremely calm. Another disadvantage of using wind power is that one of the biggest turbines that exist today can power no more than 400 homes; you’ll need many turbines only to power up a small cities.

Now that you’ve known a number of the pros and cons for using the wind power, you have to be in the better situation to choose whether or not the wind turbines for the home are a great selection for you. Building a wind turbines with large enough motors could be used to power all of your household along with your required appliances. You won’t just produce sufficient power to use for all your household appliances together with heating your house, but you will even sure to have a power even when there’s a power disruption in your city. You will be responsible for your own power which gives you a lot more freedom.

Instead of buying electricity from large power companies, one of the primary questions that people might ask whenever they decide to use windmills for homes is the sum of money that will be saved. Once you have your wind turbine set up, the particular power costs nothing at all so the wind turbine cost is simply the only thing that you’ll ever have to pay for this type of power. Ultimately, you’ll be saving lots of money but it will need a small starting fee. The cost of turbines will be different depending upon how big you need it to be and whether you’re making it yourself or buy one. The best things in terms of making your own energy is that the power companies will actually pay you for your excess energy which will go unused every month depending on the location where you live.

Since you have exactly know very well what the wind energy is and how it can be very helpful for you and your whole family. The choice will be yours to make depending on your personal preference but if you have the money to afford purchasing a wind turbine today, you’ll never need to pay for the power again. Most banks are more than happy to help out people who are willing to invest in clean energy methods so your chances of having a loan for a wind turbine are higher than other types of loans.
