5.0 out of 5 stars Great hobby saw., 4 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as a replacement for my old Draper 2 wheel saw which always seemed to have problems with things like table-tilt, tracking and tension slip, and tension unit sticking etc. Anyway, this machine is almost the same design-wise but - no problems so far! It came with a 1/2" blade, very highly tensioned (I'd advise loosening it a little before use), but I now use Axcalibur 1/4" blades exclusively. The manual - for those who may need it - is simple, and very clear. The machine is slightly lighter than the Draper 2-wheel, and it really needs to be bolted to the bench (or use a non-slip rubber mat such as the ones from the "Pound Shop"). One point - at least with my machine it's important to make sure the blade guard is really tightly fixed. An excellent amateur's machine which is well priced and reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A friend in the pocket, 15 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a replacement for my Cannon tape-using cam I'm seriously impressed with this camera's pocket-size and ease of function. It's practically idiot-proof, with great zoom and features. So well-priced too. The image quality is unexceptionable and the battery life excellent. Very happy with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little knife, 15 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used to have one similar about 12 years ago - purchased in Homebase - and it was a lot bulkier with a slightly shorter blade. Haven't found any shop selling equivalent - apart from Amazon. So versatile, so well made, comfortable to hold and slips into the pocket without causing a hernia when one sits down. Easy manipulation of removable blade and the lock-knife blade really does lock positively and safely and is beautifully designed. Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for SMALL ponds, 4 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having a pond only a metre in diameter and a nearby grotto a metre away this little item was perfect for feeding water to both fountain and grotto via a link from the local garden centre. The fountain is more than powerful enough to cover entire surface area of the pond, aerate it, as well as supplying the grotto with a stream of trickling water. It helps the battery of course to have the pump on 'timed' - and if the sun is out the battery will charge anyway whilst the system is switched on, especially when the pump is 'sleeping'. Excellent length of flex too - including the bit to the battery I can put the panel on my shed roof (about 31/2 metres up) and the battery inside the shed with the flex through a strategically drilled hole. All in all, I'm very satisfied. The company was also extremely communicative about delivery date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly gripping, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North Sea Hijack [DVD] (DVD)
This thriller has humour coupled with eccentricity (well supplied by Roger Moore as the cat-loving leader of the commando group) plus genuine suspense. The wholly detestable nature of the blackmailers is well portrayed - and believable - whilst the almost botched finale as one commando nearly tops his own leader lends perhaps an additional sense of reality to this well acted and intelligent film. Roger Moore plays his part with consummate skill - better indeed than in his Bond films.

A really gritty and extremely un-romanticised film. It really brings the real 'old west' to life.
