The quality of this pendant considering the very good price is amazing the pendant is really beautiful.
It looks like a much more expensive piece of jewellery than the price tag.

The chain is made very well also and looks very sturdy yet being delicate

Before buying this i felt guilty being on a lower budget for gifts for people I care about but this quality of this will delight a loved one for sure and I am very happy with my purchase

As always amazon gave a fantastic service

5.0 out of 5 stars very good drill bit, 8 Nov 2013
this is the bosch spec for this drill bit

Shank diameter 12mm
cutting diameter 18mm
Total length 191mm
approx Working length 130mm

firstly i bought this locally from a tool shop as i needed a 18mm drill bit fast it was about about £14 give or take a penny via a offline retail shop so if i didn't need it same day i would have came to amazon first but needs must,

however it is the same drill bit part number Bosch 2609255027 Metal drill bit HSS-R, DIN 338

ok now down to the drill and info,
Bosch make some of the best drills i have ever used, as far as i understand they use a hot-moulding production method which produces a much less brittle tempering but still keeping the bits very stong with a high elasticity effect similar to how impact sockets and bits are made the results are very high-performance long life and can be re-sharpened many times and no snapped broken bits unless you are a monkey boy pushing like heck on the drill at all angles, so i have to say all in all the bosch range of drills are very well made twist bits.
These are made with HSS as you know is high speed steel.

i have found them suitable for all different kinds of metals and hard plastics and wood drilling however the flute angle is suited better for metal so if i were using this mostly for wood i would probally set this at a new angle when i come to re-sharpen although i have had no problems with it ripping the wood to bits so that is an option only.

ok very improtant

The drill size is 18mm on this model but it is worth noting that the Shank diameter is 12mm so ignore the picture.

so as long as your chuck can take a 12mm drill or has a standard 13mm drill chuck commonly found on most drills you know you are good to go.

this is the bosch spec for this drill bit

Shank diameter 12mm
cutting diameter 18mm
Total length 191mm
approx Working length 130mm

hope this info is of help.
stay safe guys

oh..safety glasses a must and some cutting oil for metal always helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice necklace, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok boys and girls I am probably more of a softy at heart than I care to admit and had to buy my wife this when I saw it, I know I know....yuk.

But I do love her very much and probably don't say it anywhere near enough so I thought it was a lovely idea and nice gesture she would appreciate.

Not that I am any type of jewellery expert as I am more the rough tough builder type but hey The necklace I very nicely made, very good detail nice strong chain, all markings for the silver in place on the love heart and chain.

This necklace is a wonderful gift to give anyone you love and really might brighten someone's day up who probably deserves it more than you know.

I really have no complains what so ever with the necklace if I had to complain for the sake of complaining I suppose it would be the cardboard gift box, yes it has a type of gift box and a little red pouch inside that,
but you would have thought they could have given you a nice hinged type with a felt lining which could have been much nicer than the cardboard, but hey she don't wear the box so its only minor gripe.

I would recommend this necklace.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome spanners, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These axis adjustable spanners are very well made to the absolute highest standards.
The adjuster on The spanners are so silky smooth better than any other adjustable spanner I have owned,

The handle grip has a very positive secure strong feel and extremely comfortable made from very soft rubberised material ( the black part) and a hard plastic or fibreglass type material on the orange part)

The jaws are very accurate and there is only very minor wobble and none of that annoying creeping jaws associated with the cheap budget brands, the jaws grip very firmly and it gives great confidence there will be no slipping of the nut or bolts.

The spanners also have a neat accurate measuring scale markings engraved on the jaws which is very handy in both metric and imperial.

Using the spanners are fantastic I genuinely think they are awesome to work with, especially if like me you use cold tools in the winter, the soft rubber will be much nicer than bare metal for sure.

Onto the cosmetics, I think the look very professional and modern, they would look awesome in any tool kit, they have a nice tinted gun metal type colour to the metal which looks pretty cool and the makers name is engraved on the jaws.

They are built to last so it is worth factoring that in when considering cheaper alternatives.

I honestly believe anyone after a high quality tool would not do much better than these and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to upgrade.
Once you have a set of these in your hands i think you would agree with me they are fantastic value

5.0 out of 5 stars very good quality, 3 Nov 2013
i found lux safty glasses very good quality nice to wear and they look good too, you can be cool and safe with these, no excuses not to protect your eyes, not wearing safey glasses is foolish, over 20 years in the building trade i have seen some nasty eye injuries, please don't take a risk with your eyes its not worth it, these are good build and look good on too.

If like me you always seem to steam up, don't worry there is loads of any fogging sprays on amazon which you can use to treat the inside glasses and googles and it really helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This router is very easy to use, it is fantastic for under table mounting, extremely powerful gearing considering it is just 1350w, the build quality is very very good with a solid feel, it is very comfortable to use.

The dual bases is such a fantastic design which I had never used before as I only had standard plunge type built in, I really like this way or removing the base of the router.

i have found it very accurate to use with no under or over cutting, the micro adjustment is so simple to use and get spot on cuts almost every time with my trend cutters.when the router is locked it is spot on nats cock accurate which is all i can ask for.

Also it is very small package compared to other routers but punches well above its weight
i have so much positive control with this router it makes router work a dream ,it is very easy to handle when you need to be very accurate cutting with good visibility.

I found chip removal no problem with a standard vac

i have no regrets buying this what so ever and I was so close to buying the silverline budget router on cost grounds. So looking at price compared the the budget routers it is quite expensive if you are on a very tight budget like i was, but after using it i am so pleased i was not going down the silverline route for a cheap router.

Again looking at high end routers the draper is very cheap and very capable.

I would have no hesitation recommending this router, at time of purchase I got it for just over £100 in 2011 which is fantastic value for money at the time when it was just weeks earlier selling for over £150

It has worked fantastic to this day with loads of use both freehand and bench mounted

If this broke down today I would buy another one without any hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD AS NAMED BRANDS, 3 Nov 2013
I Found this scraper to be as good as any named brand on the market, i bought it from the local pound shop but it is the same as this on amazon, it is well made comfy in my large hands, i did sharpen the cutting edge on a stone for my use which has held up very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars good, 3 Nov 2013
these are very good snug fitting nuts with very little wobble on my M12 bolts, the steel seems to be very good quality unlike other china steel nuts and bolts that seem to ring off or round off very easy. they fit the socket and spanners very nice with a snug fit, ignore the Product Description which says they are M10 in the description which is confusing so just to let you know they are M12

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
these Precision Screwdriver Sets are awesome you can get some real positive grip on the driver so it will not slip out of the screw yet have power and control without your fingers slipping on the body of the driver like the old all metal type Precision Sets. their is a good range of tips which are well made.

i would highly recommend this set
