Stunning quality. This thing is solid metal and weighs a ton. it is designed to be used in a variety of ways for maximum results. Super quality item and super quality results. If you are looking for a pro quality mic for home recording, then this is it. Just plug and go.

I use it with iMovie to make voice-overs for videos. I also record narration using Adobe audition on the PC. No drivers needed on either machine. Well built, no set up, works out of the box, superb results. - job done!


EZ JUMP RING MAKER - 4MM TO 8MM

1.0 out of 5 stars * * * This is not a jump ring maker. it does not make jump rings. * * *, 22 Dec 2014
This is not a jump ring maker. it does not make jump rings. As A jeweller, I get very annoyed and frustrated at products being sold as jump ring makers. This device is a set of mandrels, winding wire around them makes a coil. This is a "coil" maker, but winding wire round a bar is easy. Once you have made your coil you then need to cut it into jump rings. This is the difficult bit, and its this part that you need a device or gadget for. This device doe snot help you to cut the rings, hence it is not a jump ring maker, its juts a coil winder, and as such its of no use whatsoever. You still have the problem of how to cut the rings.

A great value product, comes with a range of accessories. You can pay a lot more money for different packs and different brands which are all basically the same thing. This is a good extensive kit, with a quality product and a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutley incredible., 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this lens from Amazon, as an open box item. It cost me just £40. It is gob-smacking!

Across the road from me a few hundred meters. is a pub, with a sign. with the naked eye I can read the name of the pub and can just make out some red deign on the top. The red design is a small logo possibly about the size of my hand, its a horses head with a collar. on the horses collar are three small dots, probably less than an inch across. With this lens I can se every small dot on the horses collar. with the naked eye I cant even see the logo, let alone the horse.

So to put that into some kind of contrast, if there was a butterfly across the street, Id be able to zoom in to the photo and identify it.

A truly stunning lens for the price. even more so for the bargain price "I" paid for it.

Simple Solution Stain and Odour Remover for Cats, 4 Litre
Simple Solution Stain and Odour Remover for Cats, 4 Litre
Price: £15.50

5.0 out of 5 stars It seems to work ! simple as that. no chemical odour either !, 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, as the title suggest, it seems to work, it does exactly what it claims to do. It get's rid of cat pee smell.

I have previously tried various fabric fresheners (on the carpet), but most just seem to make it worse. I am also quite sensitive to cleaning products and I really dislike strong chemical sprays such as bathroom and kitchen cleaners. I put this in an old spray bottle and lightly dusted the carpet with it (about an hour ago). I've just gone out and returned and the smell really has gone. I should add here that its been lingering for several days. So one spray of this and its gone. I may apply another spray later just to make sure. But the urine smell has gone and there is no chemical smell, or choking bleach odour.The product is slightly scented when spraying, but after a few minutes I cant smell it. - or the cat pee.

Job done !


Griffin Survivor Military Tested Case for iPhone 4/4S - Black
Griffin Survivor Military Tested Case for iPhone 4/4S - Black
Offered by FoneM8store
Price: £22.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Keeps you phone safe and secure. (and keep the value in it, when you want to upgrade). but looks ugly., 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, you have to make a decision here. Do you want to stick to the lovely sleek lines of your designer Apple phone, or do you want to wrap it in half an inch of rubber and armour plating?

When I got my nice new iPhone 4S, I thought it was lovely, sleek and shiny, Very tactile in my hands. However, I wanted to keep it that way. So I opted for this case. Yes it’s ugly and yes it does turn your sleek phone into a rubber brick. But it does make it a lot safer. How many people do you know with cracked phones? So now my phone is safe, but its ugly. SO you do have to think about the risk versus the enjoyment.

I chose this one as I have the iPad version and love it (the iPad version isn’t quite as ugly). The main reason for choosing this, being the integrated screen protector, meaning that the whole phone is fully encased in hard shell. ….and then a thick rubber case over the top of that. This does make your phone very safe, but it does add considerably to the size and bulk of the phone, especially the thickness. But this is the price you pay for keeping it safe. When your contract is up, you can open the case and you'll have a flawless, mint condition IPhone that you can resell for maximum return.

So I can’t really mark it down for being ugly, it is what it is. Vice versa I can’t really mark down the iPhone itself for being fragile.
Issue 1: - The belt clip seems to be a daft idea. It clips around the case at the top and bottom. I.e. it covers the charging port. So any time you want to charge the phone (daily) you need to remove the belt clip. (and if it’s anything like the iPad case, this clip with break after a week anyway)

Issue 2:- as many have mentioned, is the home button being pressed when it’s in your pocket or bag. I keep hearing Siri shouting at me; occasionally he says "Dialling...." So do watch out for that. Some have said that you can modify the case with a scalpel. That’s fair enough, but for this price - you shouldn’t have to.

So make a decision you must. If you want to keep your iPhone safe and sound then this is a solid 3 part case as used by the forces. But whilst you Phone stays shiny, sleek and sexy. You are carrying a rubber brick.

Imagine if the iPhone had been released looking like this, would you have bought oner?


Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's a real book about crafts you can make with cat fur ! great gift for any cat lover or crafter., 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, I admit I thought it was joke at first, but its real. The book is a great craft book with step by step projects using fabric, paper and card. By brushing your cat the surplus fur can be incorporated into these cat inspired designs. Its not as mad as it sounds. for example by using felting techniques, you can add a little cat logo to the end of your scarf. Simple to do and very personal.

Apart from being a good craft book, the book is also a great gift for any cat lover. The author is clearly cat mad and throughout the book there is lot about her own cats and their behaviour, accompanied by lovely photographs. There are as many cat care tips as there are crafting ones. So a nice read as well as practical projects and inspiration.

My partner makes hand made greetings cards, and we have three cats. Everything I own is covered in cat fur....including myself! So this book was an obvious gift for her.

Highly recommended.
