Nix 5g Styptic Pencil
Nix 5g Styptic Pencil

4.0 out of 5 stars Works exactly as advertised, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having started using a safety razor again, my ageing skin picks up nicks, especially when the blade needs replacing. This stops me looking as though I've tried to slit my own throat or give myself boxing scars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Need a bit of fettling to work., 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cap ends are 50mm as expected, but so are the ribs on the bit that should be inserted (clue, sourcingmap, even your description says "inserts"!), and this is pretty stiff plastic. Needed 5 minutes whittling with a sharp knife to get a good fit. Given the price, 5 mins fiddling is not too much effort, but it would have been trivially easy to have "fixed" this problem at the design stage!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kicks Casio into the Long Grass, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being sold cheaply because, I presume, of its "old fashioned" (i.e. > 2 yrs) shape. Has exactly the same functionality as the new version. Sharp has, I am pleased to see, fixed the one "feature" of its calculators that I didn't like - it is now well-nigh impossible to accidentally change the angle format. Very configurable, from function keys to screen brightness/contrast. Far more built in functions/constants than I'll ever need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best mouse I've ever owned, 7 Aug 2014
I really like this mouse; it fits my hand, and its design puts my hand at the angle I like (about 30 deg to the desk). I thought it wasn't working at first when I put a battery in and the bottom didn't light up; then it dawned that it is IR. When it puts itself to sleep (after 8 minutes inactivity, you need to use the resolution-change button to wake it up.

All the buttons have a very positive feel and the variable resolution is very useful. All functions work as they should with Ubuntu Linux 12.04

5.0 out of 5 stars Good toothbrush, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got a second onr for my partner, on the advice of our dentist. Does a much better job of tooth-cleaning than my previous (battery-powered) brush. Note that the charger needs a 2-pin socket.

Yoga Mat - Extra Long 183cm x 61cm - Non Slip Exercise/Gym/Camping/Picnic Mat (Green)
Offered by Xett Multimedia Ltd
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for what I use it for, poor as a gym mat., 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Would be pretty awful as an exercise mat: far too thin and a horrid surface. It also stinks like mad and had to be hung in the Sun for 3 days to let the out-gassing complete. However, I didn't buy it as an exercise mat, but to cut up for other purposes, for which it is ideal (and for which a decent exercise mat would be useless).

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it should do very well, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cracking little pressure cooker. Replaces a far simpler one that I managed to destroy in use through remarkable stupidity.(don't ask!). Not intuitive to use, if you are used to the "shove the weight on the valve" type ones, so do read the instructions before use.

Looks absolutely superb on the back of my Chev. Attracts admiring looks from all and sundry, but the local religious leaders are not happy as their "flocks" are being tempted away by the noodly goodness of the FSM (pesto be upon him!)


Inglenook Waterloo Bucket & Shovel - Black
Inglenook Waterloo Bucket & Shovel - Black
Offered by Topnotchsales
Price: £18.89

3.0 out of 5 stars Not ideal, but reasonable value for money, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit flimsy; I don't expect it to last for more than a few years. However, considering that the sturdy ones cost 3x as much, it's reasonable value for money.

Positives:
* The flat front makes shovelling easier
* It holds a couple of days worth of coal (I use Stoveheat)

So-Sos:
* Supplied shovel very slightly too wide (it fits the flat front, but only just)

Negatives:
* Flimsy metal
* Top handle far too thin: makes carrying uncomfortable
* Rear handle and top-handle brackets are spot-welded on; in my experience, these fail and I'll need to mend with rivets or bolts.
