5.0 out of 5 stars Great little lamps, very bright, well made.... but they glow very slightly even when off, 22 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Comes from China so takes an age but that aside I can't fault the product. The LEDs are held inside a clear rubbery shell and the connector is exactly the size to fit in the G9 holder. The light is bright and very very white so don't be surprised at how white your room looks.
A well engineered product for a good price. Only minor comment is that a glow is emitted from the bulbs once they are switched off. This doesn't happen if you leave an ordinary G9 in parallel so assume they haven't fitted a ballast resistor which explains the price to an extent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for improving your throwing., 22 Nov 2014

This review is from: The Basics of Throwing (Paperback)
This has helped my throwing enormously and I have recommended it to others on the same course as me. The illustrations and cut-aways are laid out well and sequenced so you can see exactly what it is you need to do to throw a decent cylinder and then modify it.

Of course if you were really good at this then it won't help but the visual dictionary that talks about the shapes and their impression on the eye is helpful.

This is a good book for those who need extra support and can't throw a decent straight cylinder. A few hours of practice having read this book and I have come on from simple thick stoneware to lovely thin porcelain cylinders with right angle bases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, good service. Who needs more?, 22 Nov 2014

Two part review covering service and product.

Service - I didn't receive the product but once I had raised the issue a new one came along immediately. Can't fault the service!

Product - Two silk cloths to pull through the oboe's bores. One large, one small. Pretty obvious how to use these so no instructions provided. Silk is lovely and soft.... hmmm

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a plug and socket but speeds charging, 4 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So simple an idea. Quite pricey for what it is though. Just cuts the intelligence from the USB link and provides power only. Lots of lovely power, so you can charge your drained device quickly without having to keep telling it to trust the strange socket....

Vileda Cordomatic Retractable Clothes Line 15m
Vileda Cordomatic Retractable Clothes Line 15m
Price: £9.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a clothes line. It retracts. It also stretches., 4 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a clothes line. It retracts.

Ah but the detail matters. The line is plastic, so it stretches quite a bit when you put washing on it, so be careful to mount it high otherwise you will find your washing needs washing again when it hits the ground. We can use the whole length in our tiny garden but don't as it just isn't practical as the line stretches too much. There is a lug for you to wrap the line around but even when you pre-tension the line it stretches quite a bit.

So why 4*? It is easy to mount, unobtrusive and after a few months it still unrolls and rolls up nicely despite having been left out a few times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goopy gooey oily goods for your tired deck, 4 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The colour is much redder than I anticipated but overall it has aged nicely on our Ipe deck which had gone rather grey. The oil soaks in well and dried quickly, although that was possibly down to the lack of maintenance over the last five years more than anything else!

Damn sticky though.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Look like a shark or vampire with a mouthguard. Great idea., 4 Nov 2014
Looks cool in the mouth. Good instructions and a little mini-DVD to help you work out what to do. What's not to like?

My son, who needs this, likes the fit and it allows him to breath better than his prior guard.

Sonos PLAY:1 Black - The Wireless Hi-Fi
Price: £169.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Good things come in small packages, this is one of them, 4 Nov 2014
Nice and stable speaker, loud for the size, heavy and a decent tone. You need a sonos system to use it. Have placed on top of the cupboards in our kitchen and it is nicely hidden. A good way of extending your Sonos system to another room without breaking the bank, although this isn't cheap.

One thing to note is that the power cable comes in the back at the bottom of the unit. It looks very neat but I doubt a replacement cable that fits as neatly is easy to come by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for budding engineers, (and their fathers), 1 Nov 2014

Read the other reviews for detailed comments but OMG this is brilliant, if terribly complex to put together. Make a mistake in the gearboxes and you will take forever to fix it, so just start again!
