The Chochmas Adam is incredibly well-written.
Your question pretty much describes the Kur HaMivchan to a tee: Bassar B'Chalav Taaruvot Melicha
When I was a soldier is Israeli army (about 7 years ago) I remember they (Ptil Tcheles) were selling it with 50% discount to soldiers. So, if you have a soldier-friend you can ask him to buy one for you. Another trick is as follows. If you make Tcheles by the opinion of Rambam you can buy a Tcheles of Raavad (same price) and split it to two sets of Rambam. ...

I was in a sukkah where the host had cut lemongrass growing in his garden, and spread it on the floor of the sukkah. I don't know if it was as effective as a citronella candle in discouraging mosquitoes. Also, lemongrass might only offgas the repellent for a certain number of hours, and be no more than a conversation piece after that.
I used the Super Wicks this year, but found that some burned with very little output of light. They would stay lit long after the ones that worked as expected since they were consuming oil at a much slower pace.

You can see it on their website here, and you can read the text quoted by @TamirEvan (in his comment) by clicking on the picture. This is included in the Chumash Shay LaMora for ...
Start with with the written Torah which is more or less the first 5 books of the Old Testament, though the language in the King James Bible can be a little archaic. Look for a "plain English" translation by a Rabbi. The written Toray is divided into "Parshas". If you read one each week, it will take you a year. If you're "in a rush" reading one Parsha per ...
It's a shame that the Mesorah is no longer printed in most Tanachs as it was in the past. This particular question is answered by the short Mesorah on Bamidbar 3:39 where it says י' נקודות בתורה. The long Mesorah on the same verse elaborates on where the 10 dots are. It says that there are 10 in the Torah and another 5 in Nach as follows: Torah- Bereishis ...
Torah Sh'lemah has a list in parshat Tzav. מאיר עיני סופרים has one as do some editions of tanakh including one of the Breuer/Aleppo editions (Horeb?). Source: Any given table in my yeshiva was likely to have a dozen different tanakhs on it with at least one containing any table or map you were looking for at the moment.
I am a big fan of הירושלמי כפשוטו the commentary of Rabbi Shaul Lieberman zt"l though it is only on 3 mesechtot
This website provides a pretty decent Hebrew commentary on most of the Yerushalmi: http://www.yedidnefesh.com/yerushalmi/yerushalmi.htm This is a website which is a great resource for Yerushalmi and has many different commentaries, manuscripts, and essays. I have not gone through all of it, but do recommend Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky's commentary, which is ...

The Koren Sacks Siddur is Nusach Sepharad, that is to say, the "Spanish-Portuguese" rite. Nusach Sefard is a variant similar to Ari which bears more similarity to Edot HaMizrach and Ashkenaz to Sepharad. The main differentiating point between Sepharad and Sefard is in Kabbalat Shabbat; in Sepharad, Bameh Madlikin is said, whereas in Sefard, and by extension ...

http://www.themercava.com/dafyomi This is a website which has the translation of each phrase in gemara as one hovers over the phrase, not sure how much of the Gemara they have done though.
Seeing as there is no known company making Murex trunculus besides Petil Techelet, and on the other hand even the discounted techelet from then (for soldiers) is 100nis, I doubt anything lower will be the real deal. If on the other hand, you are interested in squib "techelet", which btw according to the radzin chassidim (I have spoken to the person who ...
Going down the Bing list, and the Resellers list from P'til Techelet, it looks like "cheap techelet" is an oxymoron. There's a non-Jewish vendor calling himself "The Shoferman"who claims to have $20.99 "Original Blue" strings using snail dyes, but he also says the color runs--a good indicator that they are NOT real techelet dyes, as the comments point out. ...
Here are some characteristics of the different translations/editions: Common Re-Print of European Edition This is ibn Tibbon's translation, but with many typos in the text. ibn Tibbon strove for word-to-word correspondence with the Arabic: makes the language very strange and off-putting to someone not used to it. But has its own charm when you get used ...
I would toss the book away. It sounds like pseudo-scholarship. Look at the end of the book and note the relative paucity of footnotes. Is Winkler credible? While he had some sort of Orthodox education, he also studied with Schater-Shalomi and now declares himself "non-denominational". A brief review of his career indicates he aligns himself with various ...
