Compost Tumbler

Solid drum sits off the ground, eliminates problems with odors, insects, rodents, and four-legged scavengers.
Gear-driven handle makes it easy to turn your compost, taking just a few minutes. Eliminates the back-breaking turning of open piles with a pitch fork or the awkward turning of materials enclosed in plastic bins.
Screened vents assure even air flow and drainage, maintaining the needed movement of oxygen.
All nutrients stay in your compost, where you want them, instead of leaching into the ground as they do in compost piles.
Holds enough "mass" to allow the temperature to rise quickly, reaching up to 160, hot enough to kill weed seeds.
Attractive green color blends into your yard or garden setting, becomes almost "invisible".
These unique design features give you finished compost in just 14 days!

Wireless, finger-powered switch.

Putting in a switch for an over-head fan, switching an outlet, or converting a two-way switch to a three-way switch can be a nightmare if you have to fish new wire through old walls and floors. With wallpapered walls and textured ceilings, it can be impossible. Until recently, the only way around the problem was to buy a clunky battery-powered transmitter/receiver.

An entirely different type of switch is available: It converts the energy of a human finger pushing a switch into a radio signal strong enough to be picked up by a receiver in a light fixture or outlet up to 150 ft. away. Only 1/2 in. thick, the switch can be mounted on walls or woodwork or even glued to glass. The receivers come in two different types - one that's hidden inside the light box or outlet and one that plugs into the outlet.

Although the range is reduced by walls and ceilings, one switch can control an unlimited number of receivers, and one receiver can respond to up to 30 switches (30-way switches, anyone?).

To install the receiver, open the light or outlet and wire the receiver between the power source and the light. Then push the "Learn" button on the receiver and click the switch so the receiver recognizes the signal. (Or buy a plug-in type receiver.) Plastic electrical boxes work best - metal boxes can interfere with the signal. Install the receiver and try the switch a few times before you attach it to the wall to make sure it's within range.

The switches are available in either square European style or the traditional rocker style. The switch and receiver are available separately or as sets. Prices start at $60.
