5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly built, clear magnification, recommended., 15 Jan. 2015

Solid construction, metal and glass, clear magnification. An excellent product at very little cost. If you want a loupe to carry around, this is ideal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good little battery tester, 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice little battery tester. Sometime it's a little tricky to make sure the battery is touching both terminals, since there's no side barriers to hold it straight or in the right position - it's all manual.

However, the display is very readable, and it's a lot easier than getting out my multimeter!

Of course, if the battery is completely dead, you won't get any display at all, since it uses power from the battery to run the voltmeter and display. But this is a small price for not having to worry about whether an internal battery is still good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for stated purpose., 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only wanted it for the Gas (triangle) key, and that's working fine. A nice solid metal key. I suppose the other ends might come in use at some point, but I can't understand why one reviewer thought it was for bleeding radiators, as the description doesn't say that at all. It just for opening various utility meter boxes.


Lowenergie 9w LED Bulkhead Ceiling or Wall Light IP65 Energy Saving Fitting Bathroom Corridor
Lowenergie 9w LED Bulkhead Ceiling or Wall Light IP65 Energy Saving Fitting Bathroom Corridor

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bathroom LED light, 11 Jan. 2015
I got two of these to replace a couple of 16W 2D Fluorescent fittings in a bathroom. They are a bit brighter than the old fittings, so I'm very glad I got these and not the 12W ones.

The light is in two parts. A plastic front, which twists on/off the metal backplate which holds the LEDs and the power supply. There's a silicone seal which the cover is pressed down into when it is attached, making the waterproof/dustproof seal.

There are three mounting screwholes in the backplate. The mounting points extend out a little (3mm?) so that any surface irregularities won't matter.

My one slight criticism is that the mains connection is a pair of wires from the transformer that come out of the back of the fitting, so some kind of connection to the mains wiring is needed in addition to what comes with the light. I would have preferred the mains connection to be a set of screw connections inside the light, so that the mains connection came directly in. But that is a minor quibble for what is a very nice waterproof LED light fitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little device and Brilliant customer service., 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My order failed to turn up by the last expected delivery date. Contact with the seller through Amazon was easy, and the seller sent a replacement which has now arrived, just 9 days after I reported the failure to arrive. Excellent service by the seller.

The device itself is excellent. It comes in a small plastic box with tool for undoing the battery compartment. It came with batteries already installed, and the two LEDs light up the area being examined very well indeed. The device is in an outer metal casing, the insides are plastic with what looks to me like a two element lens. I am very pleased with this item, and for the price it's astounding value.

If I have any criticism, it would be that there's not 'stop' in the casing, so it will swing out from the metal surround in either direction. But having said that, the hinge has just the right amount of friction to mean that it doesn't slip out of its cover on its own.

Wilton Cookie Gun

4.0 out of 5 stars Good device, poor instructions., 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wilton Cookie Gun (Kitchen & Home)
The cookie gun itself seems to be well made and easy to use and to clean. Only four stars because the cookie dough recipe that comes in/on the packaging was originally in US measures, and has been incorrectly translated into UK/European measures. Trying to make cookies using the given recipe is hopeless - the mixture just won't keep its shape while baking. But with a properly translated recipe, it works very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple measuring spoons at an excellent price., 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just as described - stainless steel measuring spoons. Nothing fancy, probably just stamped out from sheet metal, and the edges aren't rounded (but aren't sharp). Perfectly good measuring spoons. I suppose the handles might bend a bit if I mis-treat them, but they look like they'll last me many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent two-section mop bucket at a good price., 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very nicely designed mop bucket. The two sections are asymmetrical, so that although the mop squeezing section is in the middle of the bucket, it drains only into one half of the bucket. Fill the smaller side with water/detergent, and the dirty water mopped back up from the floor goes into the (slightly larger) empty section, keeping your remaining water/detergent much cleaner, so that only clean water goes onto the next section of floor. Good handle make moving the bucket easy.

I've been looking for a bucket like this for some time, and I'm very pleased to have found one at last, and at a reasonable price.
