5.0 out of 5 stars the best..., 29 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
only product i will use for car box sections and other similar applications. i treated an outdoor mild steel assembly three or four years ago with dinitrol. We have just inspected it and the internals are pristine and the dinitrol is still soft. The best there is in my opinion. they also make other specialist treatments which are well described on their website.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a superb tool. Ive been using 6. ..., 10 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a superb tool. Ive been using 6.4mm stainless steel rivets that have defeated other riveters. This deals with them with ease, and ive done 150 up to now.

Dont be fooled by other (cheaper) manufacturers that seem to be selling the same tool with a different name. They are copies and a friend bought one and, even though it claimed to do 6.4mm ss, it broke the mandrel on the first rivet. Beta dont make tools for other firms. The chinese apparently copy everything in sight....

5.0 out of 5 stars tough as they come, 10 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i've been using this for general 3/8'' drive jobs and it's been fine. Today however i used it to brace against a long 1/2'' breaker bar (one bar undoing a particularly stubborn nut - the bahco bar keeping a shock absorber from rotating - mechanics will know what i mean). one person on each, the 1/2'' bar is a 600mm snap on, so top quality.

bottom line is this little 3/8'' bar took the strain of a significantly bigger bar with a hefty adult on it - and did the job. i wouldnt like to work out the torque we had on the completely seized bolt when it finally loosened (with a bang) but basically the bahco had to cope with it. And then we did the other side which was just as hard.

Amazing. No sign of distortion and the flexi joint is still tight. The bahco 1/2'' breaker must be a beast!

5.0 out of 5 stars top quality for a bargain price, 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
when this beast arrived (having bought it for £103) i thought 'what's the catch?' - basically there isn't one. this is a serious bit of kit - high quality fast printing with a multitude of user changeable features. it is being used in a home environment (with a daughter who writes short novels) and frankly it would suit a reasonably sized business. i don't often use the words 'absolute bargain' but this has to be one. i have recommended it to a couple of business friends. it is also built like a tank and exudes quality - just dont perch it on a wobbly printer table as it is heavy.........

This review is from: Zinsser B-i-n Primer & Sealer 1Ltr
i used this primer/sealer a few years ago on a very difficult surface on basement brickwork with mould etc, that other so called sealers couldnt do anything about. i havent looked at the job i did since then as basement is rarely used and i have had loads of other things to do. ive got a similar job to complete so went in the basement and was amazed to see a pristine surface, still white and blemish free. admittedly i did put three coats of paint on but this was a seriously damp wall - this paint has to be the best available and i know a couple of professional painters who swear by it. the fact that coverage is excellent and the finish first rate is just a bonus. ive also used it on old wood with knots, bathroom surfaces and to cover an ever repeating stain that looked like oil and no one could explain what it was. i just dont bother with any other primer if the surface is a least bit iffy. and for big jobs just keep a jar of meths handy to keep the brush soft. not sure about other reviewers using a roller as this seems to be asking for trouble........

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for a difficult job, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i moved into a house with recently installed high spec german widows. all the windows still had large part number stickers on. the windows have a special coating so no abrasive can be used. i tried a couple of label remover sprays - stickers wouldnt budge - then tried WD40 which is apparently good at sticker removal, no good. i then tried plastic kitchen spatula, not even a sliver. finally, having used gasket removal tools in the past i thought i'd give these a go (and ive got an engine rebuild to do so 2 birds etc). finally got the job done, a lot of elbow grease but by using the thin scraper to make a groove then the wide one to get the remainder off all now done. tool tips still in perfect nick (very hard plastic) and no damage to the window. stickers seem to be a plasticky paper and glue is super strong - german thoroughness i guess....

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent tool., 21 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i'm dismantling a wood staircase where the treads have been nailed down into oak plugs in the original sandstone treads (why do people do things like this?). as anyone with experience of oak knows the nails are solidly embedded - this tool has managed to get enough purchase around the nail to raise it just enough for me to use a wrecking bar - so i havent exactly been treating it lightly.

it's done the job and the steel (made in taiwan) is obvious top quality as there isnt a mark on the jaws after some serious hammering. if anyone is wondering why i didnt use the wrecking bar from the start there are access issues and some delicate mouldings that meant i needed a compact tool. i have an estwing hammer that ive had for almost 30 years so it's good to know they are keeping standards high.

ive got a chimney with a difficult profile that standard cowls just dont fit properly. this fits inside perfectly (the range of sizes meant i could choose the ideal one), the stainless is a good thickness and should last a long time in the corrosive products from the wood burner. delivery was quicker than expected too.

3.0 out of 5 stars brass picture light, 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i ordered 3 of these picture lights. the switch didn't work on 2 of the 3 fittings (one refusing to move and the other not making a good connection so the light flickers). I bypassed the broken switches as the lights are wall switch controlled. I contacted the seller about the switch problem and they said they hadn't had any other failures so i must be very unlucky.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good!, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i read the other reviews and thought 'why not'. i download bt sport onto my laptop and wanted to view it on my ancient, but very good, Lowe CRT TV. I tried a VGA to s video converter (made by Lindy - a good make) however telly was just too old for this to work and there was a green tinge (sending the signal to a computer monitor confirmed it was the telly that couldnt cope).

so i ordered this little fella and have to say am very impressed. i can now watch footy on the big screen and it isnt a bad picture at all (especially as i live in a rural low speed internet area).

anther good point is that, as other reviewers have said, it doesnt need any power from the laptop USB (even though cable is supplied). some chinese electronics have a propensity to overheat because the design parameters are cut to the bone however this unit should be fine as it obviously takes very little power.

hopefully it will last.....
