Products I use or recommend

People always ask, what do you recommend. Well, finally I decided to make a list.

This is a very new page, I'll add products as I can. (and make it look better)

When you are shopping on Amazon, please click through any link here, even if you don't buy the product you clicked on. I appreciate that.

I've used the same monitor for at least 8 years, it is made by ASUS, and is an excellent office monitor because it is part of ASUS's business line. They maintain model continuity for long periods of time. https://amzn.to/2wVUZCD

Here's a 27" that has a DisplayPort plug good stand that allows portrait orientation. The price listed here was way off when I made this, it's $180

They have come out with a new model that looks interesting. Here is one that has all 3 main monitor plugs. VGA, DVI and HDMI

Let's add a newer 24" that has a DisplayPort and a good stand that allows portrait orientation. (It does not have DVI, but if you can support DisplayPort, that's the way to go.)

Monitor Adapters

Dell Computers that I tend to deal with come with 2 monitor plugs. An HDMI plug and a DisplayPort plug.

HDMI Converters


This converts a Display port to a standard VGA. I have tried quite a few of these, this one is the cheapest one that has worked out.

Music on Hold

Here is a simple music on hold player that automatically restarts after a power outage and comes with 6 hours of royalty-free music. Music on hold should be start it once and never go back. This device helps attain that level of operation. https://amzn.to/38Wr6Qd

WiFi Access Point

Business Class Wi-Fi access point for small businesses, 5 to 40 users using light to medium traffic levels.

Garage things

If you've ever fought rust on trailers, tractors, implements, or just about anything around the house or property, Corroseal should be on your shelf. The stuff is amazing, it is a mild acid that chemically changes rust into magnetite, which is a type of rock.

I bought a gallon, here's a quart.

This is great lubricant, nice and light it leave no color residue that I've noted. Use it like WD-40
