Bosch 2608000211 Sanding Plate for Bosch Delta Sanders
Bosch 2608000211 Sanding Plate for Bosch Delta Sanders
Price: £6.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality - avoid, 17 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolute rubbish. The "hook and eye" system failed after replacing just TWO sanding pads - the third pad would not stay affixed at all. If these plates fail after just two uses then it's a very expensive attachment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and easy to use, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent product for the protection of the EOS 70D's two screens.
It took about a minute to apply to both screens, and fitted perfectly and invisibly. Well worth it for the peace of mind and protection against scratches.,

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product at a fraction of the price of the Canon offering, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well-made and sturdy tripod mount for the Canon 70-300 EF L series lens. Canon's miserly approach to supplying essential accessories with their lenses is well known, but not including a tripod mount for this lens is inexcusable. Even worse, Canon's branded mount costs an astonishing £120 - £180 to buy separately!
This mount fits snugly on the lens, feels sturdy and well-made. The colour match is not perfect, but so near that it's not really noticeable.
Unless you really want to contribute to Canon's profits this is an excellent and highly recommended accessory at a fraction of the OEM product .

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular and beautiful - essential for all tree lovers, 26 April 2004
The huge variety of trees growing in the British Isles is a legacy ofcenturies of collecting by enterprising explorers. This book sets out toillustrate that variety in a breathtakingly beautiful manner.
Theillustrations, all paintings by one man (David Moore), are as accurate asthey are wonderful to look at. The artist spent many years touring to findthe right tree to paint; the result is a work in which the trees lookreal, indeed it is hard to believe you are looking at paintings in manycases.
Moore is especially good at illustrating all the details neededto identify trees: bark, leaves, flowers and fruit. Most unusually forthis type of work there is extensive coverage of cultivars, making it evenmore valuable as a guide. A size guide is provided by paintings of variousanimals to scale - an unusual but instantly comprehensible system.
This is a well-produced book with good supporting text. It is a must forall lovers of trees, a guide that is both beautiful to look at andeminently useful.
A minor quibble is the absence of some basic keys toenable tentative assignment of trees to famillies.
All-in-all a must-have!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all interested in the evolution of life on earth, 20 Feb. 2002
This is the clearest explanation of our planet's development that I have read. Its six sections set out the story of the formation and development of our planet and the life it supports with exemplary clarity. Text and illustrations complement one another perfectly to tell the magnificent story of how everything came to be.
Some previous knowledge is assumed, but the more technical terms are explained clearly. The book is a visual feast, filled with diagrams which explain and illustrate without confusing. A real sense of the past is generated, leaving the reader wanting to explore further. The final section on the modern world gives a timely reminder that extinction and climate change are still with us.
A good glossary and index, together with suggested further reading complete an impressive book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A potentially superb work ruined by too many errors, 2 Mar. 2001
This book had the potential to fill an important niche by providing an authoratative and comprehensive guide to the earth and earth sciences. Its A - Z format and good index enable users to find information with ease, and the suggestions for further reading enable the interested reader to delve deeper. However, the whole work is flawed by the numerous errors which litter the text and figures. Captions to some figures are missing or incomplete, chemical equations do not balance, chunks of text are missing, and some world maps appear to suggest several large islands (the UK, Iceland, Cuba etc.) are an irrelevance and thus need not be represented. This is a pity as if the book was as well produced as its content deserves I would have happily awarded 4*.
