4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition to he hobbyist toolbox...but make sure it's stored carefully., 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great tool, easy to set-up and practical to use. Fairly good quality build. Excellent for those fiddly jewellery and time piece jobs. Extra magnification via the 5x insert to main lens is really handy. Not used the bendy croc clips yet but I'm sure they'll have their use. The lens cover is great for keeping dust off when not in use. However as its a bit cumbersome so not that easy to store when not in use. As lens has no protective frame edging it seems a bit delicate to put in a drawer with other hard objects. Suggest its kept In a separate storage box. Would have been nice if that was supplied.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of life..., 25 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a rather disingenuous review as I generally hate chick flicks. But this waste of pixels has such little substance as to merit some attempt to save you, my dear fellow human beings, from wasting 2 hours of precious life. Obliged to watch it by my wife, on the basis that it came recommended, we love Verona ...and I owed her (won't go into that) I sat and tried...really tried to enjoy it. Perhaps I tried too hard because at the most facile and putrid end of a movie you will ever watch, the effort expended made me really resentful that the effort was not rewarded by just a smidge, a flicker, hint of regard for time thus far totally wasted. But no, the film rubs your face in the mire as a punishment for being so gullible. Don't get me wrong, I love feel good movies and can accept, nay enjoy fanciful, up in the clouds, happy ever after endings, but please...
Here's a tip ...watch the ridiculous trailer. It reveals the whole plot; yes the entire plot without any gap . This isn't hard because the plot is so weak, the 60 second trailer easily manages it. Then I suggest you rent it and skip to the end and have a good laugh at my expense, its worth the £2.49 for the pleasure ...without the waste of life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as substantial as pictures suggest., 25 Aug. 2014

Not as substantial as the photo suggests. Chrome looks a bit plastic and cheap. The oscillation mechanism has a very annoying squeak. Be aware that it has a European plug which need changing/adapter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality and loads of stuff you don't need, 19 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used screwdriver to open body of my iPhone 4 but it could not cope with the battery screw. It lost purchase and teeth broke. Fortunately I remembered I had quality jewellers screwdriver set which saved the day and made me wonder why I hadn't used this in first place without purchasing this product. All the other stuff seemed surplus to requirements. I would suggest buying a good quality jewellers screwdriver set. You're bound to use it for far more stuff than this poor quality sack of proverbial.

If you don't.... forget your waist size! Great recipes and well presented. Kids love it. Would have preferred wipe clear cover instead of paper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ford Focus Mk1 Owners ...listen up...and if you're not... still listen up!, 19 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stuff is miraculous!! If you've got a Ford Focus Mk1 with serious leaks into the cabin space then this stuff is for you! I had tried every imaginable body part replacement and silicone and mastic configuration without success.
Poured this into the windscreen seal as per instructions ...car is now as dry as proverbial femur!
Obviously the inference is that if you've got any leak problem where rainwater is causal, then with its viscosity akin to H2O, this stuff gets to parts other gooey silicones and mastics cannot reach. I'm buying another bottle just in case!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the ticket, 19 Mar. 2014

Combined with an iPhone toolset to open handset (purchased elsewhere) and some useful tips from YouTube for installing battery and improving battery life, this was a great buy. Battery life is now fantastic. Saved me forking out loadsamoney for new phone.

Well-packaged and prompt delivery. OPC unit installed and works perfect. That said it seems the unit needed replacing far too soon and it works out expensive printing.
