5.0 out of 5 stars best gun for silicone and caulk, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You know how silicone can pour down the nozzle when you leave the gun aside? Not with this gun. And it produces clean straight lines, no jitters, no blobs. And nobody stocks it in the street shops. Why?

4.0 out of 5 stars it is ok, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is ok I guess, but too small to get any real use. Anything that small means fiddly job where european filling knives can be used. I have been using the 6inch and the 10inch stainless one for ears. Those 2 have eased my work greatly. I only bought the 4inch recently to give it a go but it seems it wont see much use.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far thes best filling knife, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Has no rival used in conjunction with a 6inch Marshalltown filling knife. I am a professional decorator and I simply cannot work without these two. Small and big repairs alike are a million times easier with these. There is nothing out there to compare them with. I know they were meant for tape & jointing, but that is just filling on a larger scale. With these you can even skim entire walls easily. 2 thin coats and youre done.

I have been using these for years and I don't understand why retailers don't stock them. Same with Cox caulk guns. I always have to order them off internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
By far the best filling knife ever. I am a professional decorator and I know these knives are for tape & jointing. But the fact that it fills screw holes in one fill is crazy. Repairs are such a breeze with these knives. With these I can do small jointing jobs without complaining, like 1-2 sq metre ceiling and wall patches, rebuilding broken window reveals, re-skimming on removed tiles areas etc etc.

I do recommend using the bigger 10-12 inch stainless blade Marshall town in conjunction with this one.

Word of advice: this knife can leave slightly more filler than you would normally want to (and that's the beauty of it), just don't use it to repair light scratches with it. You will either end up with unnecessary rub-down or lumps of filler showing through your paint. Use european fillings knives for scratches.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Vans i got used to, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dear Vans you are not half the shoes you used to be.

You got much smaller for the sake of looks, you either are too narrow or too pointy or too slick in detriment of my feet. You dig into my raw blisters like a pack of hungry wolves into pray.
I don't recognise you anymore. From a childhood's skating friend you have now become some drama queen of the catwalk.

I gave you enough second chances. No more, this is the end for us.

Dear Vans you are now total SH17.
Yours truly


Professional Faux Finishes Made Easy: Easy, Do-It-Yourself Techniques for a Beautiful Home
Professional Faux Finishes Made Easy: Easy, Do-It-Yourself Techniques for a Beautiful Home
by Patrick Daly
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book doesnt go into any professional faux finishes like marbling or wood graining. It simply shows some techniques the author has come up with in his projects. It has a few examples of wood graining techniques he come up with, but the results are poor compared to original techniques.

Overall this book would only appeal to keen DIY-ers looking for new ideas.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok for emulators but no real gamepad support, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bare in mind that this gamepad has 4 setup modes, and 2 of them are the ones that interest us. One is 'keyboard' which works flawlessly and lets you map your keys into emulators, and the other is 'Gamepad' which doesn't work. Maybe my unit was faulty. Anyway in 'gamepad' mode I cannot map keys in emulators and any android game with real gamepad support will not take it.

In conclusion: great for emulators, but Android games will not take it. I understand only 10% of the games out there have gamepad support, well these games will not take this controller. Any other controller will work but not this one.

Again, maybe I got sent a faulty unit. Im sending it back

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but noisy, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
while it looks ok and its design can go with pretty much anything, the clock is very noisy. it doesn't let me sleep. I had to move it in the next room. just to let people know not to buy it for their bedrooms
