Teng HR14 Hand Riveter

5.0 out of 5 stars A proper tool, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looked through other makes, read reviews before choosing this one. Was delivered very quickly. Nice solid feel. I had to fix a window regulator on my car and stamped rivets one after another easily. In other words, I am happy. Easier to operate with two hands. Price wise, it does cost a bit more, but I know I've got a tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good locking bolt - does what it should, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is for 6 in bolt. Bought it for a side gate in my garden, works the treat. The fittings are bolts, I used my own screws. The bolt quality is solid. The size 6 in - 152 mm is about right for the gate. Wickes used to sell it for £2.99 - same as this one - however, it has been missing from my local Wickes for months now, so had to get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality alternative to a brand product, 29 May 2013

This is a cheap alternative to a brand product, looks and works the same as HP cartridge. Same installation principle, quality of print is okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect tools for the job, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When my Bosch washing machine stopped working, I got the Draper set to deal with the torx screws - and it was spot on for the job. I used T20 and the smaller one to get the machine open and to clean the plastic drain hose. The screwdrivers also have a magnetic tip - very useful in getting those screws out and in. The machine is now working and my wife is happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well presented impressive diary, however not for everyone, 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for an A4 size diary to record past events, read reviews of this diary and decided to buy. I realise now that it will not suit me. The diary is well presented and is exactly as described, although it is not easy to understand from the description and the pictures what it is. What you get is a very nice cover with a lock (it arrived locked with two keys inside between pages - you have to turn the little lock by 90 degrees to open it - I used scissors for that - once opened you have access to keys). Pages are white, not too thin. What five year diary means is that you get five years of one day on a page. In other words, for instance at the top of a page you have 25th May - this is the 25th day of May page and that one page has five sections, corresponding to five years. Each section has six lines - of manageable width. Personally for me, six lines may not be enough for describing a day's events, threrefore I probably will have to sell this diary. Unfortunately, I assumed I will get a full A5 page for a day - apparently I was wrong. Entirely my fault I should add.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good quality product for the price - £3.98, inc. delivery, 21 Mar. 2013

The diary has a leather look and feel and the A4 size looks really impressive - I got the one in black. The pages inside are of thick white lined paper, which holds the ink. The space between the lines is right for my handriting. So far, I am very happy with the diary.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classy thriller, 17 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Shadow Man [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This is a review of the film, not of DVD.

1. Plot

The plot is built as a linear narrative with very few photo flashbacks. In the beginning, Jack, played by Steven Seagal, is introduced to us as a shifu teaching a class the art of Dim-Mak. Jack is a former spy, now a CEO of a big biochemical company. He is a widow with a young daughter. Jack's father in law is a chief scientist at a secret military bio lab, who conspires together with a CIA Black Ops executive in Romania to make a substantial amount of money by stealing a deadly virus and then selling it at an auction. Unbeknown to Jack, his father in law chooses him as the courier. The father in law travels with his grand daughter (Jack's young daughter) to Eastern Europe and Jack flies separately to meet them in a hotel in Bucharest. In the hotel, Jack meets a former CIA agent Harry. As they chat together, the CIA Black Ops blow up Jack's car with his father in law inside, but not before Jack's daughter is snatched by a woman taxi driver. Suddenly, Jack is in a situation with his father in law dead and his daughter being driven away. Harry blames Russian FSB and offers his help. As Jack discovers the truth about the virus his priority now is to find and to save his daughter and then to make sure the virus does not get into the wrong hands, and so begins the film. On the whole, the plot is not as predictable as it might be expected from a B movie.

2. Characters

Unlike some other plots, this one puts blood relationship above the duty to the country. For Jack's character, that works the best. He has a clear aim and his path to achieve it is the shortest one possible, just like his strike, devoid of pose. Appropriately, his lines follow his actions. What he says is wise and I couldn't help myself waiting to hear his words. His courage and determination are commendable. You only can but admire Jack's character's moral obligations towards his daughter and towards people who he believes are not involved in this dirty game. But for those who are involved, there is no escape - Seagal will get them, you can count on that.

All of the Black Ops team, stationed at the US Embassy in Bucharest appeared to be hopelessly corrupt, and involved in dealings with Russian gangsters and the local police. Also, somehow, I am getting the impression that same actors are being used from one film to another to play thugs from Eastern Europe with same lines and accents throughout.

A character of the US Ambassador stood out as very decent and loyal a servant of the state.

3. Other points

This is not a big budget movie. Yet, the fighting scenes are skillfully choreographed and put together in the edit, which makes them a pleasure to watch. As for effects, one cannot expect the stuff from Die Hard 4. The car chases provide a thrill and excitement. The scenes inside topless and even naked clubs look beautifully erotic yet seem down to earth, avoiding unnecessary glamour.

Summarizing, four stars for a pleasurable classy film, skillfully put together despite the constraints of the budget of $15M and somewhat weak supporting cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully shot movie, 8 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Derailed [DVD] (DVD)
I must pay my dues to the first two reviews. If it wasn't for them, I would not have written what you are about to read. Granted, this does not appear to be a place where the film critics mark their territory with their DNA. Nonetheless, these reviews do seem to affect the choices we consumers make when shopping for films.
There is one star in this film and this star is Laura Elena Harring. Let me explain. In nearly all of his films, Jean Claude Van Damme (JC) represents an extreme end of male character, which is relentless, brutal, often desperate and invariably violent. For a film to be ‘edible’ however, that masculinity needs to be balanced by the opposite - the feminine side. Laura accomplishes this task perfectly. She is a strong woman, a fighter (connection with JC), and a very sexy one too (the opposite of JC). Somehow, putting these two actors together instantly created a dynamic balance. This balance could result in anything and therefore was very interesting to watch. In the scene where JC's wife caught him with Laura on the train, JC didn't appear to do much, but Laura played it so beautifully (what a mover she is) - to me, one of best scenes of dramatic irony ever.
The story is very skilfully told. In my opinion, there are no jump shots - action flows from one scene to another. Considering the use of model trains, putting it all together so that is works is a real art.
The fight scenes are amazing. JC simply is superb as is everyone else. JC's real life son stands out as a character in the film and you can see and feel the bond between them.
I rented the DVD from blockbusters, enjoyed watching it, and then went and bought one.
