Tacwise Z1-140 Staple Gun. Staple Gun Tacker
Price: 12.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a staple for every tool kit, 31 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Okay, bad pun aside, every tool kit should include a decent staple gun and this one is very decent. Its light and easy to handle but has a powerful and solid firing action. Since I got mine I have used it to staple roofing material to my shed roof, to repair fabric on the base of an armchair and to staple photos to my garage door that was too hard for me to push drawing pins into. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really is better, 31 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So how should I test these 'oxygenated' dishwasher tablets then? Sunday lunch for ten, dishwasher full up and put the baked on shepherds pie casseroles on the top shelf where the water power tends to be less. The result? A white ceramic casserole dish that hasn't been so clean inside and out since I bought it. So yes, these really are good dishwasher tablets.

Tested in a Bosch Classixx slimline dishwasher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid thriller, 25 Mar 2014
This film's screenplay was written by Sylvester Stallone and I could picture a young Sly in the leading role. Perhaps he intended it for himself but gave it to his friend Jason Statham instead. Whatever happened this is a good solid thriller about a retired DEA agent falling foul of local badasses who call in the bad guys from his past to settle a grudge.
There is nothing new here but the storyline is okay and flows well and there is plenty of action. Its also set in Louisiana and I love films set here. Even Shreveport gets a mention (True Blood anyone?).
The lovely Kate Bosworth is a little underused as a hint of love interest and Winona Ryder plays comfortably out of her usual comfort zone as white trash.
Overall this is a film worth watching if you like this genre. I watched it on the same day as the new Thor and preferred this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Save your hair!, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The claims made for pure silk pillowcases are that they are better for your complexion and your hair. My wife bought this for the latter reason because she felt her hair was getting brittle on the side that she sleeps and she has definitely noticed an improvement in its strength. There you go.

This is a well priced pack of assorted sleeves for your laminator. Good selection of sizes but I bet you end up with loads of the bus pass sized ones like me.

3.0 out of 5 stars And the lone survivor is?, 12 Mar 2014
This review is from: Lone Survivor [DVD] (DVD)
There are a lot of very positive reviews about this, many I suspect from the other side of the pond where they are justifiably and openly proud of their armed forces, a spirit that appears to have faded somewhat in the UK. That doesn't take away from the fact however that this is a pretty average war movie about a SEAL team sent behind the lines to kill a Taliban chief who make a morally right but tactically wrong decision that leaves them fighting for their lives against a numerically superior force.
The title gives away what is going to happen and a quick glance at the cast list will give you a good clue who the 'lone survivor' will be.
Performances are generally good but the action is a little gung ho at times and they appear to survive much more than the human body should be able to take despite being SEALs.
Overall its not a bad movie, it just isn't as good as some patriots like to think.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still good pop, 22 Feb 2014

Okay so he's a sad old git with a taste for young girls but in the seventies he produced some great pop music and its all gathered here for you to enjoy in your glitter suit and platform boots.

That means 'buyer beware' and the reason I say that is just have a good luck at the tee shirt before you buy it. The phoenix is actually a penis and you might not want your son wearing it if granny is wearing her glasses! That said its a good quality shirt and a great gift for any young minded Tenacious D fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bigger than it looks, 22 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to go in a humidor without first checking the size and as it is about three inches square it is way too big.
That said I have had great fun with it testing both the temperature and humidity all over the house. I even took it to work where we had complaints about the cold and found it was the lack of humidity rather than temperature that was making us so chilled. Its only a few quid so what have you got to lose.

If like my wife you have tiny ears from which pods always fall and like music when you go for a walk then this is the ideal solution. They look good, they feel comfortable and the sound is well rounded and detailed. They also fold down to go in your suitcase when you go on holiday.
