What is it?
Introducing Go Sol Power's Firefly: the world’s most advanced solar powered device for light and mobile charging. With a main battery box, solar panel and five (5) LED lights, Firefly can be used for residential or commercial purposes.
How does it work?
Firefly has three different parts to provide the basic necessities. The central “brains” of the system is the main Firefly box. From a specially designed battery to carefully selected materials, everything about the Firefly screams “engineering”. We start with the battery:
Ask any pocketknife enthusiast what his favorite blade is and you’ll likely get a different answer every time. Knives come in hundreds of different configurations and styles, making the decision on which blade is “your blade” all the more complex. Certain knives are clearly better suited objectively for specific applications, but for an everyday pocketknife, the criteria can often be subjective to ones taste. Sarge offers many different knife variations, from single fixed blade to foldable styles.
A single-blade folding pocketknife comes with a locking mechanism for strength and durability. Single blade pocketknives are a clear favorite for everyday blades. They are simple in nature but strong enough to be well suited for a variety of tasks. Single blade knives often come as a straight edge, or a combo serrated edge. The Sarge SK813 Panther is a combo edge knife standing 3.5" with a locking mechanism. This is a perfect all around utility style pocketknife.
A single straight edge knife is best suited for “push cutting” and gives the user more control and accuracy to perform precision cuts. A serrated edge, like the SK-805, gives the user a much better level of “sawing” power, but with the benefit comes a lose of some precision and clean cutting ability.
Another consideration is blade length. Longer is not always better, as is often thought. Most short blades are able to travel anywhere as most laws that prevent knives from being carried certain places pertain only to blades longer than 2.75 inches. Short pocketknives are often foldable blades with a locking mechanism. One disadvantage to picking up a larger knife is that they are often fixed blade. This makes them more difficult to transport legally, safely, and discreetly. A perfect example of a very transportable small single-blade foldable pocketknife is the SK-800.

Parker Welding Hose is engineered for portable or production line welding in a variety of settings. Typical applications would be factories, ships, construction sites, steel mills and foundries. One of the staple Parker Welding Hoses is the Siameez hose. This is a Grade T Twin Line Welding Hose, where red is the fuel line and green is the oxygen line. Series 7109 is a premium twin line welding hose that is flame and oil resistant due to its tube and cover. The following fuels can be used with the Red line; acetylene, hydrogen, natural gas, propane, and propylene. The green line is compatible with oxygen. Grade T is the only grade that has been recognized for use with oxy-fuel gas welding applications by the Compressed Gas Association.
Grade T Single Line Welding Hose, Series 7141 (Red, Gas) and Series 7142 (Green, Oxygen) are premium single line welding hoses from Parker. These hoses feature flame and oil resistant tubes and covers. Naturally, only the red line can be used with fuel and only the green with oxygen. These hoses are made for a wide variety of applications and long continuous lengths are available. Typical applications include, bending, brazing, cutting, fabrication, gouging, joining, piercing, pre-heating, post-heating, severing, soldering, straightening, surfacing, and trimming. Typical places of use would be assembly and fabrication shops, construction, factories, foundries, mines, oil rigs, plumbing, rail yards, salvage, scrapyards, shipyards and steel mills.
Another option is the Siameez Series 7126 twin line welding hose. In this case the red line is compatible with acetylene only, and not any other type of fuel. The green line is compatible with oxygen, as per normal. As with the other hoses mentioned here, the tube is “non-blooming” which minimizes the migration of combustible waxes or plasticizers the rubbers surface. In addition, flexibility is provided for with plies of textile reinforcement.
