Very pleased with purchase.

Great product and am delighted. Clear easy read screen. The laser can be used to "sight" the target area you are measuring. The manual that accompanies it clearly explains the various factors or parameters that affect all non-contact IR thermometers.

My uses are mainly comparative (checking radiators etc) and therefore I have not attempted to calibrate it against a reference but as far as I can see , the readings are within a °C or so . It does the job and is MUCH better than another make that I used to have. Easier to use, clear screen etc.

It's a good idea to protect the screen.
In principle, it is very easy to use but in practice, I have found it difficult to lay the film onto the Nexus screen without trapping a one or two air bubbles. The reason is that even the slightest bit of dust on the screen creates an air bubble and it is very difficult to work in a totally dust free place- perhaps something to do with electrostatic attraction?
However, in practice, when the Nexus is switched on, the screen protector is invisible and any bubbles are invisible too

Not sure there is too much to say about this! It does the job and there's enough in the tube to do quite a few installations and it is sold at a reasonable price.

Previously, I'd used material in a little syringe and there was only enough to do one job and the price was ridiculous.


Logitech C270 HD Webcam - Pink Balance
Logitech C270 HD Webcam - Pink Balance

5.0 out of 5 stars Logitech c270 HD web cam, 24 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One or two people had commented that my Skype video calls were not so clear and I realised my pc web camera was ~ 10 years old and was a pretty low resolution version. The Logitech C270 seemed to have good write-ups and reviews and so purchased one ( in a stylish pink!).
Have been using it now for some months and it works well- a great improvement over the old one . Picture & sound qualities are excellent and I am delighted to have good quality at a reasonable price.
One or two reviewers commented slightly adversely about the camera's clip/stand but it seems ok to me. It hooks over the computer screen well enough.

Snugg™ Nexus 7 Case - Smart Cover with Flip Stand & Lifetime Guarantee (Black Leather) for Nexus 7
Offered by TheSnugg
Price: £59.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Snugg Nexus 7Case, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made and gives the Nexus 7 screen good protection when travelling. The cover is firmly held in place with a magnetic catch.Neat little cut out for the charging lead and on-off & volume controls. Am delighted.

Two very minor niggles- 1) there seems no where to store a stylus and

2) When I visited some friends the other day, there were two identical Snugg Lexus covers and there was temporary confusion whose was whose. It would be handy to have a slot or place to insert an owner's label.


Laser 5198 Windshield Repair Kit
Laser 5198 Windshield Repair Kit
Price: £13.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Windscreen chip repair, 4 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had a chip (not a star chip but a chip out) on windscreen ( passenger side) and was tempted to call out Autoglass. Was tipped that can count as a possible insurance claim.

Called Amazon for Laser 5198 Windshield Repair Kit and it was there by 10am next day and the repair is invisible. Have challenged several passengers to spot the repair . Totally invisible.

Brilliant ~ £10 spent.

The Challenge: Britain Against America in the Naval War of 1812
The Challenge: Britain Against America in the Naval War of 1812

5.0 out of 5 stars 1812 War US vs Britain, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This revealed (to me) an unknown part of US/UK history. The book explains and lucidly clarifies the origins and course of the 1812-1815 us/gb war. The war declared by the recently founded US on Britain was ostensibly about sea trade and impressed seamen but was actually a cynical cover by US President Madison for a grab on Canada whilst Britain was occupied fighting for its life against Napoleon and the French empire.

The book explains that whilst the US navy claimed 3 naval victories, overall, this "small" war (which was simply an irritation to Britain) was a disaster for the US whose commerce was wrecked by the overwhelming naval British strength that strangled the trade of newly independent states of America. The book exposes the folly of voting to wage Naval war but then voting not to pay for it.
It ended in stalemate with an independent & strong Canada,a burnt-out White House and capture/destruction of all the US Navy battle-ships. The origins of the later US Civil War could be said to have been laid in this 1812-15 war.

Great book and I could hardly put it down.

Great saw bench - and much safer than a traditional saw horse when using a chain saw. The chain saw is safely clamped and secured (ie no chance of kick back) onto a pivot and therefore there's is no bending down to pick up the saw between lifting logs to the bench.
I reckon that logging is twice as fast as the traditional method and safer!
One hand to hold the log and the other on the saw.

It took a little while to erect the bench from the kit of parts till my wife advised me I had one pair of the sawbench legs back to front! The instruction book is correct but some of the diagrams are a little small or slightly ambiguous.

The simple log length guide is useful to cut all logs to the right length too. ( I made a few graduations on it to speed up setting the lengths).
All in all, a great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Painting Extension Pole, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant- I have a house with tall, white rendered gable end that is a nightmare to paint. It needs either a scaffold or a long ladder onto steep sloping ground. The 5m extension pole lets you reach to approx 25 feet from the ground. At the very highest reach, used a very small roller to get into the edges but it worked well. Great value and much safer than trying to work from a ladder.
