Pocket Size Stainless Steel Crowbar Pry Bar Widgy Bar EDC Tool for Bushcraft & Survival
Pocket Size Stainless Steel Crowbar Pry Bar Widgy Bar EDC Tool for Bushcraft & Survival
Offered by LINGKU ENTERPRISE SERVICE
Price: £0.95

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for under a pound, 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's solid enough for a three inch prybar, but poorly designed: In higher quality pry bars, the gap between the front prongs is tapered, so it can be used as a nail remover - this is just a rounded cut-out that's not much use for anything. It didn't come with the IPhone tools described, but what do you expect for 95p?


Dragonpad Magic Stainless Steel Spinning Top Silver

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Stainless Steel, 5 April 2016
The manufacturers seem to think "Stainless Steel" is a colour, instead of a metal. There are cheaper zinc alloy tops out there.


FINEJO 80's Vintage Style Classic Round Steampunk Sunglasses
FINEJO 80's Vintage Style Classic Round Steampunk Sunglasses
Offered by Books United-UK
Price: £4.74

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & Cheerful, 6 July 2015
Relatively cheap, perfect for Steampunk - a bit creepy looking for anything else, I'd have said.
I bought two more pairs, but they both have flaws in the lenses - still wearable as costume, but you wouldn't want to wear them all day.

2.0 out of 5 stars This won awards?, 23 April 2015

Nope. Speculative fiction needs to grab your attention with something better than a dopey AI that has trouble with 'he' and 'she' - it's not clever, inventive or interesting, it just makes the descriptions difficult to read. If I wanted difficult, I'd have bought a textbook.


The Golem and the Djinni
The Golem and the Djinni
by Helene Wecker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.83

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe it gets better?, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The writing is competent and descriptive - but the pacing is just too slow for me to want to finish the book, after almost nothing's happened in the first third of it. If you like long set-ups, detailed descriptions and background, it might be your sort of thing.

It's like someone's taken a comic and thrown fifty thousand words at it - More is Less.


Ansmann Tamiya Pinhouse Remove Tool # 4850-0011
Ansmann Tamiya Pinhouse Remove Tool # 4850-0011
Offered by Colditz-Modellbau
Price: £2.67

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job nicely, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An obscure and difficult to get hold of tool, but the only hard part was finding out that the battery connectors I was trying to repair were called 'Tamiya Connectors' - once I knew that, I quickly found this pin removal tool. Delivery was fast, if relatively expensive, and the thing works just like the description says it will.

Now it's going to sit unused until the next time I need to disassemble another set of battery connectors!


Faithfull HPLANRS Planishing Hammer 5Oz Round and Square
Faithfull HPLANRS Planishing Hammer 5Oz Round and Square
Price: £12.91

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, cheaply made, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The face came pre-dented and wasn't aligned with the shaft, I have serious doubts about the quality of the metal.

If you're looking for a cheap planishing hammer, you can do better - if you're looking for a decent quality hammer, it's not that either!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding dark chocolate, 18 Mar. 2015
Rich & rewarding, with none of the powdery bitterness that characterises supermarket chocolate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick 'N Easy replacement on old kit., 19 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Raised my old, slow laptop from the dead & got it back up to speed - along with an Ubuntu Linux install to replace the old & dodgy XP. Just swapped the old hard drive out, ran the installation & it all runs well, even with the tiny amount of memory the ancient thing will support.
