5.0 out of 5 stars Cost effective, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cost effective. I've had two units from other manufacturers fail; so far this seems fine; no problems and reasonably compact and thus discrete.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely quality, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely quality and feel. The chunky nature of the pen is ideal for my (man's) hand.

A smooth writer, (not me - the nib).

5.0 out of 5 stars What can one say? It's a simple syringe..., 22 May 2014

...which would appear to do its job excellently (but I have yet to use it!). Perhaps a little expensive for what it is.


Sundials: History, Art, People, Science
Sundials: History, Art, People, Science
by Mark Lennox-Boyd
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £25.73

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really interesting book with a wealth of detail and many sumptuous pictures of sundials from around the world. The maths is, perhaps thankfully, kept to a minimum. Details of how we perceive time and the influence of the Church is especially interesting. The website mentioned ( shadowspro.com I think), is especially recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes it's good ...but, 18 April 2014
Yes, it has a wealth of detail and many interesting pictures. For the modeller it has virtually all the details one needs for individual locos.
On the negative side, all the pictures are in black and white, so the many details re colour schemes are somewhat lost, as are the many pages devoted to 'naming'. The explanation of the chain drive and valves is done better elsewhere, but the results of the 'exchanges' gives a useful summary.
Overall though, recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good purchase - recommended., 7 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful. It has about 10mins runtime - more than enough for me to clean 2 cars. I find it just as useful around the house -especially around our log-burner stove. It has a lot more suction than the car-vac units one sees.
Drawbacks? Well I would advise cleaning it out after every use. The dust collection space is rather small and just cleaning this and the plastic 'pre-filter' won't make much difference as one needs to clean the internal corrugated paper 'jelly-mould filter as well.

If B&D read this, one slight design fault is where the hose is attached to the unit (by 2 screws). The pipe can get blocked and it's here that the offending mass of rubbish collects and it make it difficult to clear, (a sharp blow along the pipe may work!). It would have been better if the hose was detachable at this point.
Overall - very good; recommended (18v/£99 version).

Burkley FLIP-G2-IP5 Premium Antique Leather Flip Case for Apple iPhone 5 with Credit Card Compartment Stone Washed Antique Coffee Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 7 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely leather case for the iPhone 5. I've had it for 6 weeks now and there's been no sign of wear and tear. I made the mistake of adding leather oil to the surface to protect it, but it darkened the leather and made it look worse. Severl applications of IPA made it look as good as new.
The 2 pockets are useful but a tight fit initially for credit cards etc.
Expensive but worth it.

I have only used this once, but it appears sturdy and very good value for money.

It's adjustable in both height and reach.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for light-weight work/connections, 6 July 2013

OK for light-weight work/connections.
Easy to screw onto the base; just a little flimsy - if one screws them up too tight then you can see the two units bend a little.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tongue-in-cheek (I hope) Law Book for cyclists (not mountain bikers), 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting soft hard-cover (!).
Aimed at the Tour-de-France type enthusiast, but also at the normal club rider. Some very interesting observations and guidelines.
