5.0 out of 5 stars How to properly screw an Apple - together., 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The end result is that you get pictures that are indistinguishable from the Apple's antediluvian output. However, the small changes in the pentalobe shape, between iterations 4,5 and 6, leaves easily spotted markings on the two dock screws if the wrong screwdriver is used, particularly with the gold topped 'champagne' coloured Iphone 6. My wife's 'phone 5 had survived two post-flush swimming lessons without turning the marker in the headphone socket purple. The internal marker was lividly purple, but the 'bumper' seemed to have spared the more obvious, external sign.

Examining the dock screws on her contract Iphone 6, another habitual bog diver, it struck me that these could provide an easily screened tamper detector. This 'phone was also free of water sport stigmata, but the screws, virgins they were not. So it got this cheap fix, 2x Apple iPhone 6 (4.7") and 6 Plus (5.5") Dock Screws Special Pentalobe Torx Driver Opening Tools GOLD, and was returned without incident.

As per sod, when this module was first replaced, there appeared a spot in the centre of every 'photo. It was, of course, the internal lens.So, wipe carefuly before insertion to avoid lens chancres.

3.0 out of 5 stars How square is your house? (Uncorrelated with your 'coolness' score.), 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before buying these, make sure your ceiling is evenly levelled. If the base plate is fitted to a 'creatively plastered' ceiling, causing it to bend between the two fixing brackets/points (see picture halfway between middle and outer lights on either side), the reward expected by the proud DIYer, especially after hours spent checking black/red to brown/blue connections, turns into a punishing reminder of failure. A case of pride coming before the fall of your lights.

On a positive note, the three stars are for the unforgiving fitting method, otherwise, the quality of this fitting was more than acceptable.
When removing the bulbs, you might try using a slightly dampened sucker; I had no problems with this job.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fine if your deaf., 17 Jan. 2016

Pretty colours and compact size. Unfortunately, door bells are supposed to make noises; this he did no such thing, and so was difficult to find anyrhing for which to use it. Two weeks post return, and still no refund.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived today. Took a long while to fit the guard, as lining up the screws with their holes is made difficult by the (unbalanced) guard relying on the same screws to hold both it and the small retaining flange in place. The instructions are either dangerously wrong, or the grinder is faulty. They caution the user to "[m]ake sure that the screws are fully tight and that the guard can be rotated". The problem is that tightening the screws renders the guard immobile. A page on, we are told the supplied guard is specific for grinding, so for cutting, "a guard specific for this operation must be fitted. A suitable guard for cutting off operations part number 1004484-00 is available and can be obtained from Black & Decker service centres." The tool, however, seems to be supplied with both grinding and cutting guards.

Besides my shower cap, there was little else I could fit in this bag. I stretched it on a rack, soaked it in warm water, stuffed it with newspaper and removed the stitching, all to no avail.My efforts have left me with a handful of leather rectangles that just might make a bi-pair of sandals for my pet gerbil.

These picks are thick, at a guess, to prevent them from premature disintegration. Not a hugely successful strategy. See picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars To buy sly,me, I know., 10 Jun. 2015
The subtle, understated, thoroughbred pedigree of this horrorlogical masterpiece combines seamlessly with the stratospheric class and oceanic trench-like profile of its namesake. Stallone or Cartier; how can the connoisseur decide?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not 'Taylor-made'., 9 Jun. 2015
Paper-thin, dull wood. Two would have been better as one of reasonable substance. They looked the perfect fit for my Taylor GS-mini, but they aren't, so beware appearances. I don't know what guitar, if any, that they would fit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misses T-Cut., 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The polish and cleaner are almost indistinguishable. The polish seemed to be more of an abrasive, so, using a cheap Fender wannabe, I compared the polish to T-cut original. On a scale of 0 - 10, the polish was a 2 to the T-cut's 9. Factor in the price of these three bottles, at Fender's 7.5p/ml versus T-cut 's near free 1p/ml, and the verdict seems indisputable. But, most luthiers seem to recommend cleaning with no more than a damp, soft cloth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spinny thingy, 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a drill. It makes holes in things, as it should. This feature is accompanied by the appropriate high pitched whirring and grinding noises, plus little mounds of debris. You plug it in, so it weighs less and is more spinny (neologism).
