2.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT waste your money, 7 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overpriced is the first impression I got. Then it got worse. Wiring diagrams are of no use to anybody as you cannot make out the very poor copied information. Needed to check the MAF sensor, it's in the pipe it had written, no, it's not. And the picture are dull and uninformative. Overall, it's like a poor copy of free information dragged from the web and thrown together. They must have paid the publisher well for them to print this pile of ..... I gave it two stars because it has to be of some use to somebody. In my honest opinion though, it's only the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good light sander, 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The concept was sound. The hook and loop is not compatible with the sandpaper discs I bought. The discs are of a standard type but the holder seems to have a thicker kind of holding pad and does not secure the pads as it should. I tried it at 360 rpm and even moderate pressure resulted in the sandpaper dislodging. For light sanding it's great and the cost makes it a worthy buy but don't think about power sanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, accurate, strong., 10 April 2015

Used this on my old ml8 wood lathe to check the speeds. Quite surprisingly, they were a close match to indicated speeds written on label. Is the modern day equipment better and more accurate than it was fifty years ago? Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better sci-fi films., 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Interstellar [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Quite absorbing all the way through. It's a film and should be seen as it is, made up in the mind of another mans thoughts. Good thoughts well worked out and well directed and acted. This is another feather in the cap of MMc as again he shows the world he can act and even outshine some of the " great " actors. It's a long film and it keeps you seated all the way through so it got my thumbs up for a job well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive models should be worried., 10 April 2015

Excellent bit of kit. Easy to set up and use. Looks really expensive and works like a high end keyboard. Value for money, and then some.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny., 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great value for the money paid. Loses a star like most of the add ons that you purchase. When are they going to start giving an optical cable as part of the unit, they cost pennies, yes, pennies. Easy fitting and wiring up so that bit was worth five stars. Again though, skinny wires. Lost that star again. It's neat and tidy and easy to fit with ok instructions. 3D sound? Put my 3D glasses on and no, still can't see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy one person fitting., 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Super easy to fit and no different to the other wildly expensive models. Easy instructions to follow just using the pics. The push out bracket works very well giving ample room for all your connections. As for carrying weight, I have a 60" plasma all singing all dancing and it has not moved a millimetre off the level since it was fitted. This kit works, very well, and their prices are realistic. Delivery was fast. Oh, one last point to make, I fitted this and hung the TV on my own, that's how well this system works, first time and no worries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap grinder but NOT nasty., 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great service with fast delivery. The sort of service you always want and desire. Well packed and pleasant smile on delivery mans face. Now the fun stuff. Opening the box is probably the best part of getting something delivered, the anticipation of how it's going to look and work. You won't be disappointed either. This is not an expensive model, and this should be remembered. Saying that, the wide hss grinding wheel is very good quality. The metal cover had to be bent slightly so the adjustable tool rest was parallel with the wheel when bolted on, minor niggle easy fix. Fixing to a board I removed the rubber feet so the grinder is held hard and fast without vibration, this is when the base cover plate falls freely to the floor. Again very minor niggle but be aware of the wires inside. For the job it's employed to do, and the price of the unit, it will stand proud amongst the big boys and show they are at times overpriced. How to improve on it, well, a quieter motor, but there goes the price again. Taking everything as a whole package for the money spent and I really think I got a great bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good looking and comfortable., 19 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to put together out of the box. Lots of scope to get the correct fit so will suit all shapes and sizes of head. I normally wear a dopi while in the workshop and this still fits snugly. Plenty of room for a dust mask and safety glasses for that added security excellent view of the work and comfortable to wear. Clear and light with good stays to keep visor up when needed. I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value level, 19 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very fair price on this level. Thousands of years old and still the best way to level thins around corners and at some distance. Easy to use with very clear markings. I put some food colouring in the water to make it easier to see on a sunny day. I'm optimistic.
