Spear & Jackson Neverbend Carbon Adjustable Lawn Rake

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a good tool, 21 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm at present getting together a collection of Spear and Jackson tools - I bought firstly a pair of their extendable shears and have been really impressed by the quality and reasonable price of those; they work really well and are dead sharp. Then I bought these; adjustable lawn rakes are really handy for not only for lawn raking and fallen leaves but also for raking inbetween plants when you've hoed and these, just as the shears, have proved excellent value for money. Will buy next their secateurs. Thoroughly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars great machine!, 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm actually writing this on behalf of my Mother who bought this cleaner. She is over the moon with this machine - it apparently really does a good job; sucking up loads of dirt, dust, dog hairs etc., is light and easy to use among other plusses.
She used to have a Dyson but never liked it, finding it heavy and clumsy to use as well as the tools being fiddly. She says that this model knocks spots off the Dyson every time - highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous work, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is such a wonderful presentation of Madam Butterfly. Yes, the vocal performances and the acting are well above par and that would be worth buying the disc for that alone but a special mention must be made about the DESIGN of the production; the use of puppetry is incredibly original - not only that but the set design and the movement of the cast on and off stage warrants high praise. Highly recommended!


Tickets Please!: A Nostalgic Journey Through Railway Station Life
Tickets Please!: A Nostalgic Journey Through Railway Station Life
by Paul Atterbury
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book!, 21 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't think people realise how much of interest has gone with the passing of much of our railway system, undoubtedly the greatest in the world in it's heyday.
Railways aren't just for "Anoraks" - if they were of abiding interest to Sir john Betjemen and others, then that's good enough for me.
Paul Atterbury's book is extremely well researched and put together; lots of great photos and text - I'm sure that you'll refer back to it time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good product., 24 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wondered what I was going to get when I ordered these gaiters, there seemed to be a lot promised for a relatively low price.
However, my worries were proved groundless; I use these for Pheasant beating and they sure do get a lot of robust wear and tear.
They stood up to the test excellently - the gaiters are well made and promise a long life-span.
Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb machine, 24 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This piece of equipment is real quality; the beautifully made 4-stroke engine starts straight away every time, is super quiet and the overall quality of manufacture is remarkable. It blows brilliantly, too!
I use a lot of machinery in my gardening work and the majority is 2-stroke - this can be a bit of a bind, making sure that each machine has it's correct mix.
Actually mixing the 2-stroke is time consuming and is expensive.
What a joy to have a machine, then, that just uses straight unleaded petrol; this is also much cleaner environmentaly to use than 2-stroke.
Next, factor in the price, which is very competitive indeed; you could get a much lesser machine for more money than this.
Overall, a truly worthwhile investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars A taste of better times gone by, 2 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Someone reviewed these discs and complained about there being hardly any railway, especially steam railway, content.
That's as may be but the films featured are a marvellous snap-shot of times gone by - you'd hardly credit that they were made in this country, they could have been made a million years ago!
Watching these films made me very nostalgic and provided a useful benchmark in determining how, in comparison to today, (I think,) life has diminished in this country.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money, 2 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I wanted something lighter than my hot and heavy chainsaw helmet to wear in Summer months.
The actual construction was reasonable enough but the thing fell apart after about five minutes - the tightening device on the rear head-band sheared through.
The price tag for this was cheap; cheap is as cheap does, I suppose.
Splash out a bit and get a better model than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure class, 2 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suddenly realised that I didn't have any Four Tops music in my collection - that won't do!
This a very well put together compilation for an excellent price; it was delivered in no time as well.
It's such a pleasure to hear Levi Stubbs and the gang perform - this is truly timeless music that is so well done that it transcends any fashion or fad.
Highly recommended!

Yep, very pleased with this; it backs up my stuff to my external hardrive with no fuss and that's what I wanted from this software.
