Grandindex 10X Jewellery Triplet Loupe + Six LED Lights + 21mm Top Quality Optical Lens + Free Leather Case, Diamond Gem Magnifier GM1021-IP

3.0 out of 5 stars Magnifier is great, LEDs suck, 20 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Low distortion lens great for setting tines straight on fountain pens - or any other use you may have for it of course.

LEDs way too dim and really blue - even concerned about possible UV emissions.

Quite expensive, but made a really unusual present. Still glowing many hours later - even still glowing in the morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool and neat - fits in cutlery drawer, 20 Jan. 2014
Simple, does what you want. Just takes a minute to get used to the light touch buttons (no heavy pressing required!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pen and smooth Pilot nib, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a medium nib of the flat moiety, so gives a slightly italic result which I enjoy very much. It is great to be able to see the ink level in the cartridge.

It took a bit of persuading to get going (needed to wash it through a few times), but that can happen with any fountain pen. Also should you wish to adjust the ink flow (give it a chance to work in first), the nib and feed can be removed so as to avoid damaging the feed.

It fits nicely in the pen holder in my folder, so the lack of clip isn't really a problem.
There is plenty of room in the body of the pen, so it can take the CON-50 piston fill adaptor so that bottled ink of your choice can be used instead of cartridges.

The triangular grip is interesting, and I think helps keep me holding the pen in the right position (always useful with any kind of flat type nib)!

Overall I am pleased with this purchase.

:)

Bodum 11154-294 Bistro 1L Electric Cordless Water Kettle - Red

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst kettle I've used, 27 Sept. 2012
Truly annoying kettle!
1) Takes ages to boil (but at only 1.2 - 1.4kw not suprising)
2) You can't switch it off part way through (unless you remove it from the base unit or switch it off at the wall).
3) It over boils massively wasting energy.
4) It won't reboil unless it's cold.
Summary: totally hopeless kettle I hate using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice shirt, 9 May 2012

Good quality 'Fruit of the Loom' cotton, so it should last well. Printing is clear but could be more detailed for my liking (I like detail!). Overall pleased - got a few laughs already ;o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Twirled paper, 21 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We love the way this book is not 'girly' at all so can appeal to boys just as well (lots of bugs, aliens, sea-creatures etc.)

The progress allows you to master each technique before moving to the next by following the pages in succession OR you can just dive on in and be inspired.

All the papers and tool, once out of the clear plastic cover, are tricky to fit back in again, we found a little box to store them in was much more successful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good batteries. They really do stay charged! Love it., 23 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was totally fed up with MP3 player/camera spare batteries which you charged up and then when you needed to use them 4-8 weeks later they were virtually dead. At last this has been addressed with Eneloop rechargeables. Ok, so the stated mAh rating is a bit less than the latest AA/AAA's, but all that high capacity is never realized unless you use them immediately! Well done Eneloop! Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for enthusiastic kids!, 24 Aug. 2010

Our 6 year old loves these 'lift the flap' books, and with some of his best friends obsessing over all things Egyptian, it is thoroughly enjoyed - regularly!! Good content, educational and entertaining - great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sized knife to always have in your pocket, 28 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had one of these in my pocket for the last 24 years and it has never let me down. Simply cannot be without it! It has everything you need to use regularly and weighs in at less than 100g. This one is an updated version of the one I lost while camping recently! It is actually an improvement and has a sturdy loop to attach a lanyard - so I won't loose it again.
