Bought this book summer 2009 -- plenty of butterflies around. The great thing about this book is that it's not full of clutter! Butterflies are illustrated in life-size. Has good description and clear area of distribution. As it is for UK only, not too many species, and a nice slim book to carry in knapsack whilst walking. Well worth the moneyPocket Guide to the Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland
I bought the steam stripper for a completely different purpose from what it says on the tin. I used it for steaming wood before steam bending. I am a green woodworker -- ie unseasoned timber (as seen recently on the Marstercrafts series on Fri BBC2 9pm) The generated steam is passed from the tube into a box containing the back legs and back slats for the chair. The legs and backslats were then bent on special jigs. The Wagner steam stripper produced plenty of steam for the job, and lasted 70 minutes - just the time I needed. I don't know what it's like for wallpaper, but it's just the job for steambending!
