Modelcraft A5 Self-Heal Cutting Mat, Blue
Modelcraft A5 Self-Heal Cutting Mat, Blue
Price: £2.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, this if fine, make sure you get one, 18 Sep 2014
I forgot I ordered the smaller A5, I like it so much I'll be getting a larger on, keeps your knife from getting blunt, and the grid and angles are really useful.
Get one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Magnifier Not For TEXT, 18 Sep 2014
Description indicated it was usable as a reading lamp with magnifier.

Unfortunately the magnifier is unusable for reading text.

Bullseye distortion lens only useful for non-text items.

The light works, so there's that, but expensive for a small plastic led light.

If it worked like the description suggested, ie to magnify text, so you can read it, then it would be really good, but with this bull's eye lens it makes it extremely annoying and difficult to get any text into focus, its' so bad I almost got angry with it.

If you only want to magnify NON-text items and its about a fiver inc postage then I'd recommend it.
For any other use its just a waste of money, just get yourself a nice large glass magnifier and use another light.

Or stop being cheap and buy one of those expensive ones that you looked at first, or get off to a optician - I jest ;)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really that good, much better ones from other sellers out there., 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The metal is sharp and rips through the sandpaper, which you can solve by sanding it down.
But one of the holes is a little too close to the handle which makes tighting it up a real pain.

There are much better ones, that clip the paper in.

I would suggest not buying it from Consoletronic Ltd as they have twice sent me upsetting and condescending emails, just for asking a question about a order.

4.0 out of 5 stars Noisy fan but it works fine, 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its fine for what it is, only takes out moisture from a highly concentrated humidity though, and the fan is very low quality with no concern for the mountings so it's pretty noisy.

Still it does it's job so grab one if you like.

2.0 out of 5 stars Scratchy, 21 Aug 2014
These had a weird issue, they scratched,
Draw a circle and on the up stroke they bit into the paper, would even rip it.
Asked and they were refunded, but wouldn't recommend you buy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it., 21 Aug 2014
This is really cheap, and totally useful.
Why wouldn't you buy it, no mounting, just a suction.
Stores all you brushes, so nothing can settle on them.
Sturdy and easy to use.
Def recommended.

If I could find a toothpaste container that I could hang in there too I'd be happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tea Towel, Electrical Wipers, Dish Cloth, Floor Cloth, 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They are very useful in a lots of ways, do yourself a favour buy several colours and assign different uses to them,
that way you will always have the perfect cloth for what your doing without any cross contamination.

Give a good shake before use, and don't use bleach, that's all you need to know.

I use:
Blue as dishcloths, and tea towels, shower cloth
Red are floor cloths only
Yellow are for electronics, screen wipers etc.
When they are all used up, they go in the garage/workshop as rags

Perfectish, knocked off one star, as would be better without the label sewn on, and the price is a tad high.
Would be nice if they did a multipack of choose able colours and amounts too...


Cogex 43103 Wood Chisels with Wooden Handle
Cogex 43103 Wood Chisels with Wooden Handle
Price: £7.96

2.0 out of 5 stars If you want cheap chisels, for a one off job with no size constraints, these will do,, 28 July 2014
6,12,18,20,24
Size displayed on Amazon:
6,12,18,20,24

Actual sizes marked on chisels:
6,12,13,20,24

Actual size of the chisel blade (pretty important when doing woodwork)
6,12,"17",20,"22"

So not only didn't I get what was shown, what I got was marked incorrectly, so I didn't even get what I didn't get, instead got something different.

Two were loose and had to be glued back in, unfortunately the holes were not even centered in the handle, affecting the accuracy of any use. You really don't want an off center sharp chisel that you hit with a heavy hammer to be out of true, not if you value your wood (both kinds)

Another was out of true because the metal itself was bent, from the shaft to the tip it was leaning so far left it started organising union representation for the other tools in my chest.

Low quality steel, so you will be sharpening them daily
the ferrules are really thin and jagged underneath, so that will be a concern
The handles are wood, so there's that.

If you want cheap chisels, for a one off job with no size constraints, these will do,
they are not something you will passing down to you grandkids though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dovetail? have you ever?, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok I saw japanese,
then fine cut,
then narrow kerf,
and Dovetail,
Thought great, just what I want to practice doing dovetails,

NO

Really no,

I don't think even Peter Sellers could do Dovetails with something as flexible as this.

The only possible way to do a straight cut would to have TWO sacrificial pieces of wood in the vice along with the one you are working on, to guide the saw in a parody of a straight line.

Cuts like a directionally challenged drunk contortionist who lost their bones in a freak deboning incident, sitting in the yoga position on top a balance ball in high winds while trying to keep eye contact with all 414 circling cross eyed juvenile bats, at the same time, who are gravitationally challenged, also in high spirits as they just finished Gotham City.
