Hi-Tec Falcon Waterproof, Men's Hiking Boots, Smokey Brown/Taupe/Core Gold, 10 UK
Hi-Tec Falcon Waterproof, Men's Hiking Boots, Smokey Brown/Taupe/Core Gold, 10 UK
Offered by Blunts Shoes
Price: £35.00

3.0 out of 5 stars A good boot for light use., 6 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Comfortable boots, worn for work in the horticulture plant trade....so worn every day and worked fairly hard but similar in actions to a person who hikes or walks allot in the country side.
The last pair I purchased lasted 8 months, the pair before 12 months...so ok(ish) on the quality. Both pairs failed at the front where the curved up rubber sole joins the black fabric section,( the sole came off at this point ..and worked it's way back). Other than this the sole underside has not worn out or through.
The black fabric section around the toe section seems to disintegrate / delaminates when regularly exposed to water, the black peals off leaving a white fluffy base fabric.
The body of the boot seems well made and holds together well , I have had a few areas of popped seams and torn leather work on both boots.
One lace loop/eyelet pulled off one pair, when two days also the the laces are not great and don't last long.
They are also not waterproof in any way (not that I expected this, but some may).
Overall a fairly good boot , very comfortable and not bad for the price .....but they will not last if you are a keen hiker.


Landmann 43.5cm Kettle Charcoal Barbecue
Landmann 43.5cm Kettle Charcoal Barbecue
Offered by JTF Mega Discount Warehouse
Price: £24.18

4.0 out of 5 stars Good BBQ for Gnomes, 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good Little BBQ for the price , Little being the correct word , It's not very tall (70cms to top lid handle) !
Meaning you will have to bend over while using it , or raise it ....or kneel !
Having said this , it works and Cooks food and isn't that flimsy or tinny.
Once the internal shelf is put in there isn't enough room to cook any 'tall' food such as a chicken etc ...but sausages , steaks etc no problem.
We don't BBQ too much so it doesn't make sense for us to go all out on a Weber etc ...But if you love 'BBQing' I would invest in a brand.

Good for a family of 4 , but not a full party of adults ...too little cooking space.
Good size for camping , boats etc , Fits into a car no problem.

Over all does the job and feels like it will last a while even left out side (no cover).


Kilrock Big K Multi-Purpose Descaler 400ml

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product ,best bought from a high st shop., 8 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great descaler, it really works, no scale left on our Kettle at all.

Be warned this product is best purchased from a shop if possible (Robert Dyas sells this) if you order from Super Utensil Ltd they (without any thought or care) send the bottle out simply chucked into a padded envelope. The formic acid contained in the bottle WILL leak and it WILL arrive all over the inside of the package, getting on your hands and the post mans hands and into any small abrasions or cuts, which is unpleasant added to this you will have to deal with the acrid smell over everything you use to wipe it and yourself down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Natural chewing insect killer and garden repelant. (Aphids etc)., 4 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased cold pressed Neem oil to use on my herbs as I obviously do not wish to use chemicals on items I'm going to eat.
I have to say It took a few goes to get it right,buying the wrong types of Neem oil and even when I narrowed it down to the cold pressed the first few attempts did nothing much to dent the aphids ....but after finding the right mix it now works well.

Note: This more natural way of controlling chewing insects takes more dedication and the effects have to build rather than an 'instant hit'....But it does work!!
This Neem oil comes as a thick brown paste with a subtle but earthy smell (not nasty but its not nice either sort of unidentifiable heading towards not great).

SIMPLE RECIPE FOR INSECT SPRAY.

1.Buy a hand held spray bottle (one dedicated for use with this oil....you will not be able to use the sprayer for anything else once you have used it for Neem)
2.Warm up the Neem oil (in the bottle that it arrived in) by placing it in warm water until the oil is runny and easy to pour.
3.Fill your spay bottle with warm water.
4.Add the Neem oil (around 2 tea spoons worth)
5.Now add a small amount of dish washing soap (shake the bottle, hold the bottle up to the light)...If the Neem oil sits on top of the water then you will need to add a little bit more washing liquid until the oil is evenly distributed through the liquid when shaken. Don't add too much washing liquid , just a bit at a time.
6.Shake well and try on a 'sample' plant ..wait 24 hours, If the leaves don't burn and the plant looks fine then go for it.
(The correct dilution should be slightly milky when sprayed / as its forms drops on the leaf..... but not too thick or visibly pasty).

Neem oil should be used once or twice a week , this not only gets rid of the insect but stops new ones from landing.
It also works on tomato leaf borer ,tomato leaf curl and leaf fungus (for me the leaf spot fungus on Olive trees).
Stick with it !....it gets easier with routine and it does work across the garden ...and no nasty chemicals! (Rated 4 stars because its a bit of pain in the bum to mix).

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap for chopping., 3 May 2016
OK Jigsaw , good for the price. I use mine for chopping wood to length to fit into my wood burner, I would NOT trust it to be 'spot on' accurate, I've had mine 6 months it's coped well with being fairly poorly treated (so fair enough build quality), The base plate/shoe has bent slightly to one side as the stamped metal seems fairly poor.... so my cuts now have a subtle mitred edge.

The saw has settings for power (no idea when you would need 'very low power') plus another function on the side, operated via a 3 setting switch which as far as I can tell goes like this :
No1 setting (shake the jigsaw around a bit)
No2 (Shake the jigsaw around quite a bit)
& No 3 (Shake the jigsaw so much the blade drops out)!

However the blade quite happily drops out often enough when being used all by itself ..so I find there's never any need to use No3 function.

A note for Left handed users: The air/ motor fan vent is on the right hand side of the saw so wear goggles otherwise all the sawdust gets blown into your eyes ...another cool feature !
Fits Bayonet / T blades any brand seems to fit well.

So over all it cuts ok (max comfortable cut 'in pitch pine' 25mm) it says it can cut hardwood but I very much doubt this. However its still not bad for certain projects such as floor boards, has drawbacks but for the price that's expected, not a trustworthy tool for highly accurate work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hit and sadly miss., 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I discovered little visitors in my shed so ordered a pair of Ultra power mouse traps ....Put both down. First night using just the included/inbuilt bait: Nothing. Second night, Chocolate: One trap disappeared completely? Drawing the nasty conclusion it worked ..but not as well or as instantly fatal as it should have.. 'shudder' poor thing :( Third night, Mature cheese: BAM, (different mouse) quick and clean. So they seem to have a hit and miss success rate.


Gardman Wooden Cold Frame
Gardman Wooden Cold Frame
Offered by Garden Selections
Price: £37.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Cold frames for light use, 9 April 2016
I recently erected eight of these purchased by a customer through Amazon.
My over all impression of them is ok (for the price). All eight where easy to put together, no misaligned parts , all screws and bolts were present.
They are made from a wood very similar to Balsa wood which surprised me, meaning they will need regular oiling, without this they will last no more than a couple of years max.

The Balsa also makes them very light , so if you are considering them for an exposed area with wind and rain during winter months these are not for you...the lid/door needs to be securely tightened every night or windy day or the lid WILL be gone... even with fixing to the ground the frames are just not robust enough to take too much of a battering.

As I said they are however ok for the money , they will work to protect seedlings , cuttings etc and the plastic windows keeps the inside nice and warm and humid.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works incredbly well...BUT be careful where you use it !, 24 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for getting rid of limescale down toilets (unlike many products I've tried ) this really does work and with only the minimal of scrubbing , pour in and leave for 10 - 15 min's and clean ...ALL GONE .
Warning! In my eagerness to help clean I turned to using it on our chrome taps in the bathroom , squirted it on and left (while i got on with other areas ) ...It pulled off the chrome leaving the brass underneath ...we now have zebra taps in the bathroom. No amount of scrubbing will remove the frown from my wife's face :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy!, 24 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just arrived , 15 min's to fit and very easy to do . The rack fitted my 2010 Scoda Octavia estate with no problems, indeed with the adapters included I see no reason this rack shouldn't fit the vast majority of cars (with fitted rails) with no problems ...the system is that easy , that adaptable. Once fitted it is strong and secure (shaking the bars moves the car not the bars ) and with the 'key lock' blanks that hide the allen key mechanism there is little chance of them being casually stolen. My car is now instantly more practical ...no more wedging planks ,and long items into the boot and across my shoulder ..hooray !!
