Striker Hand Tools 77629 Mechanical Carpenter Pencil
Striker Hand Tools 77629 Mechanical Carpenter Pencil
Price: £3.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of lead in your pencil., 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good idea for the average DIY'er and the clip keeps the pencil firmly in your pocket. The nice dark graphite shows up well on many surfaces I have found. The product came with four strips of graphite, making it good value imho. As others have commented, the slipping jaws are the weak point of this product - not one for the heavy handed and clumsy.

4.0 out of 5 stars No more shoulder wrenches!, 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walkezee (Misc.)
The first harness to stop her in her tracks. I have tried seven different variations and well-known brands of 'training' harness with my two year old rescue-Spaniel, and this Walkezee one means I can hold her lead with a single finger even! I have not had my shoulder wrenched once since discovering this harness. It functions so well to turn her on the spot if she starts to pull, that i've bought a second to keep in the car. (Actually, I purchased a third as one had its plastic buckle snap despite minimal use - hence a star deduction.) The size differences between small and medium with differing thicknesses of the straps is quite substantial. Be prepared to have to try a size up/down for best fit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thick ink, 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Leaves a nice thick ink, but I doubt their durability. The markers received was some eight years old since manufacturing date (2007!) and dried up. Amazon did provide replacements (of the same age) that thankfully were not dried up second time around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripperrods Vapour Tape, 5 Jun. 2015

The tape is as anticipated (via Flooring Online UK) and provides a good moisture-proof seal to strips of Novostrat used underneath my laminate floor boards. Highly satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Novostrat Sonic Gold, 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Highly satisfied. Purchased via Flooring Online UK who at the time of ordering was a genuine Novostrat distributor for the UK - I know because I checked directly with Novostrat! Delivered on-time as promised (via Tuffnells) and no issues (foil tears etc) with any of the five rolls purchased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imperial-Metric ease, 8 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Convertor Pro (App)
Very useful app, not least for easy conversion between Metric and Imperial. Ideal when watching the Biggest Loser USA on tv to understand the magnitude of the contestant's weight losses of pounds:kg. An aide to technical conversing with older generations as to metres:yards regards gardens and decorating, and likewise when discussing 'C:'F weather temperatures! Good for European distance conversion of miles:kilometers or speed mph:kph too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stable dBm range, 8 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As described by the seller, namely "genuine." Noise seems to have has stabilised a little from 5.1-6.3 dB to within a 5.6-6.1dB range regards the master socket, although the bell wire seemed already disconnected at home. Being able to disgard the splitter filter probably helped. The extra length screws are provided, and slotting the interstitial plate into place and reassembling took five minutes. I should have bought this ages ago instead of dithering over potentially wasting £7.

4.0 out of 5 stars Similar to Ronseal..., 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... it does exactly what is says on the tin. It's easy to clean too. Much easier than using a paring knife for only a couple of quid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel the G-force..., 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Phenomenal speed improvement to my humble notebook. Although sceptical of SSD initially, it's true - boot times are now mere seconds. All the games I play on steam, Warframe, Titanfall, Payday2, RomeTW2, Ghosts, Riptide benefit from this SSD. Maps load so much faster and i'm regularly first to arrive on the battlefield. Frequent steam updates to games are finally a breeze, no more 'HDD busy' slowdown and bottleneck.

Pagefile read/write will improve your game performance if your ram is a little lacking, though I have now disabled SSD virtual ram to hopefully enhance the longevity of this device. I cannot afford another in the next few years! The read/write speeds get faster the larger the drive capacity, I would have preferred the 480GB, but the 240GB was my maximum price point.

Easy to install in my Vaio, and a spacer is provided if required to fit the SATA slot. The ol' Windows experience index effectively jumped from 5.1 to 7.8 with this upgrade. Crucial is a leading brand, and I have been satisfied with their products before. TRIN works well on SSDs via W8.1 replacing the constant need to defrag your old HDD.


Leifheit Long Handled Covered Dust Pan and Brush Set

3.0 out of 5 stars Super lightweight garden/kitchen tidy., 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very lightweight brush-pan set of decent capacity. The closure action keeps bits/leaves contained well. Frankly, even for my nan the handle is a little too short and light for the less dexterous to manage a good sweeping action. Due to the swivelling brush-head, you cannot sweep towards yourself, and have to sweep across your body right-left or vice-versa into the pan. However, it is well constructed and ought to last.
