Tacwise Heavy Duty Z3-140L Staple/Nail Gun
Tacwise Heavy Duty Z3-140L Staple/Nail Gun
Price: £9.75

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as it needs to be at a good price, 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple, did the job. As others did, I found that I had to finish the longer staples with a hammer, but I don't blame the stapler for that - it's a balance between the density of the wood you're going into and the strength of the spring you are loading with your grip - the stronger the spring, the stronger your grip would have to be. Given also that I was driving into tanalised timber, I'm happy that this machine serves its purpose and does so at an accessible price.

1.0 out of 5 stars 6 months on, now virtually useless, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
6 months on and it's almost useless. This is due the the execrable quality of the sound coming from the handset, which with low gain and high distortion, frequently makes the thing effectively inaudible. This is despite the handset being fully charged and the base station located around eight feet away at shoulder height. If it's the batteries, then hard luck, as they're not replaceable. The sound has never been great, but it has grown steadily worse over time. This cheap rubbish is going in the bin. Terrible product. Avoidance strongly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly easy and straightforward to assemble, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fairly easy and straightforward to assemble. Tough enough - it withstood a chair slamming against it from a stumbling adult! I have four guitars on it - one Les Paul size, one big Epiphone acoustic, a slightly smaller 12-string and a classical, all without touching one another. I suspect I could get another electric in there. It takes up a bit of space, but the guitars alone would take up more, without being so tidy and, to some extent, protected. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars No good for brewing beer, 27 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Home brewer. I bought this to replace a worn out Baby Burco of the same size that I picked up in a car boot sale years ago. Unlike its forerunner, this is simply not up to the job. Fair enough, Burco say brewing is not its purpose and it's only because their earlier product could handle it that I thought this might too. Simply put, they don't make 'em like they used to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ghosting on prints, 27 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ever since installing it, all printouts have ghosting, sometimes severe, suggesting that the drum is not clearing down properly. We never had this with the Samsung own brand. Maybe the cartridge is not the cause, but the association is made and I can't take that risk on documents intended for my clients. Won't be using it again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lights up the room, even when computer off., 27 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what a computer mouse is supposed to do, but otherwise I suggest it is not for use on a bedroom computer. Even with the computer switched off, this produces a bright blue, pervasive light.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rubber handles don't last, 27 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Three months after using this once or twice a week, one of the rubber handles shows significant perishing. We use it on an LPG hob, and wash it in the dishwasher, so we're not doing anything it wasn't supposed to tolerate. If you want it to keep its looks, consider an alternative. Curiously, I was looking for bare steel handles at the outset but this was all I could find. Cannot recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone, 4 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although that said, this is my first Android, so what do I know? Upgrading from faithful Nokia N95 8GB, which was a smartphone in a way, but not on this scale. Problems at first connecting it to Orange for data, because Orange seemed to think it too difficult (now there's a firm that's gone downhill recently) until I insisted they send the config texts, then all went well. Setting up email was easy. Talks to the car via Bluetooth. With this, I don't need to carry my laptop everywhere any more. Build quality good and solid, nice feel, responsive and quick. The naysayers ("too cheap, not a name brand, can't be any good") now silenced. Four stars, not five, because the ringtones and loudspeaker a bit quiet and the manual's rubbish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, clear picture, 4 Dec. 2013

For converting HDMI output (e.g. from receiver) into composite video on old TV. in my case, using a SCART adaptor. Works well. Surprisingly good picture. Plug it in and forget about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview that gets round Kindle limitations, 4 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This short work relies heavily on graphical illustrations. As a technology, Kindle's not great at that, but the author has got round that limitation by providing Website links to where the graphics can be viewed in detail. That means exiting Kindle for a browser, so it may not a be solution for earlier Kindles, but that's neither the fault of the author, nor the work.
This is a good overview of Kanban, with practical examples of how the author uses Kanban in a variety of ways. It will certainly be enough to help you decide whether or how you want to study Kanban further, and it in some circumstances, it may be all you need to make use of the technique and adopt it into operational management.
