3.0 out of 5 stars Too close to the bone, 6 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Love Alison Weir's historical research which is usually incredibly enlightening and delves into personal possessions and considerate of the strands of evidence. I had trouble with her early fiction though and I thought I'd have another go with this review copy. Sadly I still can't get into it. I think the author is too close to the historical evidence to take liberties with it. As such the characters seemed to be undistinguishable in their speech and lacking in passion. I started skipping and it didn't seem to improve. Just not my thing

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, some oddness, 5 Feb. 2016
Old Karcher lance died, and the machine weighed so much we both had trouble shifting it. Really awful to use.
First the numbing research.
I decided against the K2, since on balance water cooled as opposed to air cooled on the K4 seemed a more durable option. I decided against compacts, since there is now no integrated detergent tank and you have to use a plug in semi triangular dispensing bottle. K2 and compacts don't allow you to stick this directly in the machine like the full K4. You have to attach a tube to siphon it out instead and this seemed daft for portability.
Tried a Warehouse deal with the patio attachment, came with a broken machine handle and the price went up on new and used models while I was waiting for the refund.
Found a bargain elsewhere of this the latest model. It just comes with the soft-medium- hard adjustable lance and the hard pressure only lance.
Although I do want a patio cleaner acccesory as the pure lance splatters the dirt everywhere, if you buy the attachment separately, you can get a pointy one to go into corners, the bundled accessory is just round.
There are four extra bits to attach with screws straight out the box, handle, back net, lance holder, jutting out base caddy. Can't think why they weren't attached or redesigned (still not using the net ot the jutting out base). The power lead is longer than the old model, but you really need an outdoor extension lead and a hose reel to allow flexible use.
Tried the round rotating car brush, but not quite as good as the very old version, and needs a lot of pushing downwards to dislodge dirt and doesn't rotate on all settings. The alloys might have cleaned faster with the narrow hard brush. I'm also mulling over the extension pole for upstairs windows.
Uhhn detergent. Lots of different types. We settled on the car shampoo (because it is alkaline and better for car paintwork, probably......) and the universal cleaner. You have to buy at least one expensive (around £7) 1 litre bottle of each version to plug in. You can refil them....the 5 litre bottles if you can find them are between £12-19, so grab bargains when you spot them). Ummn and there's the issue. Do you have to take the first cap off to use the detergent? It is really awkward to remove, pill bottle awkward, pushing the sides with the arrow in and twisting. Underneath there is another cap with a pierced diaphragm. The design seems to have changed on the cap from previous versions. Our first go with universal seemed to work without removing the cap, second go didn't, third go with car shampoo didn't, so we took off the awkward cap and ran through the entire 1 litre bottle on one wash -ok very filthy car. But for value we might as well drive up the road to the eager forecourt team who are, ahem, offering 'the best hand job in the region' . You have to make sure that the machine is pushing out water on the soft and mix setting (there's also soft, medium and hard). The yellow trigger handle on this machine version displays the setting, but you seem to alter the pressure with the attachment. The round car brush has a knob to alter the detergent concentration (which we left on full after our first frustration). There is no detergent adjustment on the machine.
Now you may say, well duh, read the instructions. I snigger and go looking for an instruction book on Egyptian hieroglyphs. There is reference to 'optional accessories Plug n clean detergent bottle with locking lid' and 'remove the plug n clean bottle from the intake and close it with the lid'. Nothing says how to remove the awkward cap or why the outer cap has a tube cut out moulded into it. YouTube has demos where the bottle just gets plonked in without decapping, and some where glance and you miss it, the outer cap is removed. Plus on the smaller models you are attaching it with a siphon tube. The bearer of the y chromosome finally found some instructions in German on the bottle, which said remove it, ..... Argh. Funny the Karcher submersible pump I just got had crystal clear instructions.
Otherwise way more portable, if only down to moderatel heavy. Like it, but affording the attachments and shampoo is painful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really bad, 2 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First led floodlight I've bought, so learning the parameters. It took me a while to get this installed, so I can't now return it.. It is totally rubbish. The cable is poor and can't as far as We can see be replaced, we had to use two junction boxes to wire it in 2 metres.The light is minimal and the pir barely covers any distance. Got plagued by the suppliers to give a review over several mnths. Feel utterly let down by the other reviewers and Auraglow, who do make reasonable indoor bulbs. Now to find a decent replacement as its not fit for purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Ryobi One toy, more product information would help, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
New toy arrived this morning to replace my deceased wired Bosch. On first trial it seems far more powerful.

Since no other reviewer seems to mention the out of the box experience....here we go.

It does take normal T blades. Although the two supplied wood blades look totally different, with a little U cutout at the top and a hole in the top section. T blades do fit fine (she says after buying the recommended Ryobi set after doubtful comments on these reviews). It's all to do with the fitting method. First of all REMOVE THE BATTERY. Turn the black lever on the shank until it lines up with the front and shove the blade in firmly before you release. It is possible to push the lever too far over to insert the blade. If you are taking a blade out, grip it before you turn the release button or the spring will shoot it a short distance.

It needs storing without the battery IMHO for safety.

Speed is the plus minus button, with three settings
Angle is the 0 to 3 setting, with some helpful pictures on the drill body to adjust to the material being cut.
The allen key to adjust the foot is stored at the back of the drill.

I can't see an anti splinter guide available....its a big hole to fill.
I was however able to attach my old Bosch cutting guide easily. It has a 9mm wide rule and a little clamp with a screw and two claws that grip the edge of the jigsaw foot/shoe. The Ryobi one looks to be the usual unobtainable spares.

Ringed binding, lined pages, not with tear off perforations. Cover is a fairly rigid plastic so good as a writing surface. Reasonably good notebook

4.0 out of 5 stars Celebrate world rat day!, 5 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the diluted gift version of the many editioned Difford's guide. As a starter present for what do I get the person who likes drinking it compares well to its big sister book. It's a browse and consider book, not a compendious reference. It easily out performs all those remaindered or discount books with only a few recipes. Where it fails compared to the main guide, is its lack of an iingredients index so you can use up the rest of the bottle and recommendations of particular brands of spirits. Although cocktails seem to have been invented to mask pretty rough prohibition liquor with creams and fruit juices, if you are wanting a good tasting drink, following the recommendations in the main guide is key. Although I've still not found Ketel One vodka, the fruit liqueurs from Gabriel Boudier are excellent. So more accesible to a browse, but less information. Take your pick, but buy Diffords!
