5 Meters of White 1.5mm 15 Amp 3093Y 3 Core Heat Resistant Flexible Cable
5 Meters of White 1.5mm 15 Amp 3093Y 3 Core Heat Resistant Flexible Cable
Offered by Ideal Lighting
Price: £4.12

4.0 out of 5 stars Be careful who you buy from, 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this flex before without problems.
I would avoid ideal lighting though, they sent me ordinary flex that was not heat resistant.
Could have been dangerous for someone who didn't double check the spec on the cable before installing.

Large capacity
Nice amount of froth

So good and convenient that it gets used several times a day
Well worth the price given how well it works

Cons
Absolutely none at all


XTRA THICK CAR GREASE Motor Car Use Workshop Grade lub Smoother moving parts
XTRA THICK CAR GREASE Motor Car Use Workshop Grade lub Smoother moving parts
Offered by APONLINE
Price: £7.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Great grease, 12 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I looked all over for decent grease but the majority was more like thick oil. This one though is thick like grease should be.
It doesnt get slung out of fast moving parts like those thin greases do.
I use it on power tool gearboxes that arent fully sealed becasue it stays where you put it doing its job.


DeWalt XR 18V Lithium-ion Brushless Impact Driver with Batteries
DeWalt XR 18V Lithium-ion Brushless Impact Driver with Batteries
Price: £295.84

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 speeds are so much better than 1, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lot better than the original single speed version.
By selecting a lower speed you can drive small screws so long as you are careful. I’ve successfully used it for 8x3/4 screws.
Using the lower speeds also saves bit wear especially when driving big screws into hard wood.
It’s much easier to handle than a drill driver.

Would be perfect if it had a non impact setting with torque control but I guess that would add weight.


Wera Impaktor Bit-Box PZ2 15 Piece WER347524
Wera Impaktor Bit-Box PZ2 15 Piece WER347524
Offered by XPN1
Price: £27.59

5.0 out of 5 stars The only impact bits worth buying, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wera make the best bits no contest. I get around 300 8x3 inch screws driven with each impaktor bit.
Tried the cheap bits from Dewalt for around £6 for 25 but they end up being much more expensive wearing out after a handful of screws.
Currently these Wera bits are advertised as PZ2 but the product details say they are Philips.
They are in fact PZ2 Pozi bits, not Philips PH2.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gap under screen protector makes screen unresponsive to tapping, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As well as the reviews saying this case fits like a glove. I read others saying it has a “bouncy” screen protector that affects the use of the screen.

I got three for work ipods and all of them suffered from a bouncy screen protector. You could actually see and feel the centre of the screen protector deform under your finger.

The result is that tapping on the screen does not work. Instead it requires a firm press to push the screen protector down in order for it to make contact to the screen.

Anything along the top or bottom edge of the screen requires an even firmer press and often takes 2 or 3 attempts to make it work.

Every staff member using them had the same problems.

I replaced the Otterbox cases with Griffin Survivor cases and although they are a little bulkier they do not surfer from the bouncy screen protector, staff also report the buttons on the Griffin cases are easier to press although the volume level is lower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product long expiry date, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These Steroplast dressings are as good as any I have used previously.
Packaging is much better than some others I have seen, fairly tough and filled with air so any damage should be easily seen as it would deflate.
Got mine from DK Medical supplies and expiry date was 4 Years 9 months away which is the longest I have seen, Handy if you dont use them very often.

Hahnel Sony Type HL-G1 Battery For Sony Digital Cameras
Price: £28.06

5.0 out of 5 stars These are better than the original Sony Batteries, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used them before and they always perform better, last longer per charge than the Sony batteries.

Also these batteries allow the camera to display how many minutes use you have left, the standard Sony batteries don’t do this.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are great, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got them for my Bosch PKP 18E glue gun which is 11mm diameter and they work perfectly even though they are 12mm.

They dry as clear as any other glue stick I have used, bond just as strongly and at £2.95 for 10 x 12 inch glue sticks its great value.

I also like that being longer than most other glue sticks you don’t need to reload as often.

Will definitely be buying more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this drill bit, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this to replace a normal 32mm auger bit but the tri flute design is terrible.

It digs into the wood so violently that the drill bit jams solid into the wood and stops turning, the drill then continues to rotate almost breaking your wrist.
You end up having to stop the drill and reverse it to unjam the bit before starting again. Because of this stop start drilling it takes much longer to drill the hole than it would with a conventional auger.

I found the breakout with this bit to be worse than with a conventional auger and the way it digs into the wood you are much more likely to damage the surface of the work piece or yourself due to losing control of the drill.

After drilling 6 holes varying the amount of pressure in an attempt to make the bit work it still dug in violently every time.

I gave it to a friend to try just in case it was something to do with my drill or the way I was using it and it was just the same for him.

Slower than a conventional auger, dangerous to your work and wrists. This is definitely one to avoid.
