Woodstock Gregorian Alto Chime - Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars ... musical - not a cacophonous clunking of wooden blocks like some 'chimes', 4 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The key point about these chimes is that they are genuinely musical - not a cacophonous clunking of wooden blocks like some 'chimes'. Bought these to add to a soprano set we've had (and enjoyed) for years. We can never tire of the combinations of melodies you get depending on the wind direction and strength, and which way you hang them so diffent tubes catch the wind first and start a melody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Travel Companion, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As most of the time when travelling I'm charging USB compatible devices this is great - just take USB cables without plugs and save on both weight and space, and simultaneously charge two devices. This replaces my collection of adaptors; European, Australasian and an a bulky dual input UK 3 pin one. The reason I gave 4 stars only? - If I knew when ordering that there is a superior version that supports the earth pin I would have gone for that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Right-handed use only!!, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought this at the same time as buying left-handed scissors (Fiskars) I was taken aback to find that I can only sharpen scissors using my right hand because the guide grooves are only on one side, so the device can't sharpen from the reverse side.(don't know what this will do to my left-handed scissors). I would have thought that somebody manufacturing left-handed scissors would have thought about a left-handed person sharpening them and designed their sharpener to be used either side!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Double-sided a pain!!, 4 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting this map to include the Indochina area on a single side not to have the region split in two with each half of the region on different sides of thye sheet (or 3 if you count the extra inset for the extreme south). This makes route planning and place locating awkward. Other than this pain the map is very useful in terms of detail.

3.0 out of 5 stars Holds more promise than paper!, 22 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not impressed with the strength of the magnets. Over 3 pages of 80gsm paper and you watch the clip slowly sliding down the surface it's attached to! The spring of the clip is strong, though, shame the magnet can't hold it's own!
