2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 Nov 2012

Dry as a very dry thing. Could have been really good this but the photos are very stock stuff and it feels very formulaic. Certainly wouldn't be worth paying the full RRP.

It's quite clever with it's little stand ( which works fine in landscape but angles the iphone too far back in portrait) and it does protect the phone quite well. It's a bit on the cheap side and let down by it's plasticky grey sides, bearing in mind that what it holds is a lot sleaker. All iphone buttons still easy to operate but docking it particularly with say a belkin tunebase isn't possible whilst the cover on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and interesting, 26 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is really a book for the enthusiast or aero modeller looking for photographic reference material. It quite "dry" and technical in it's writing style and the broad range of aircraft tackled tends to make it a fairly brief introduction to the particular type. I bought mine secondhand (twice, once it lost it's way from the US!) and the second time the book reeked of smoke. The last days of the Reich photos are always interesting though. Hope this review helps you a little more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Draper expert pressure washer, 10 Nov 2012
Confusing isn't it?! Is it any good or not....well I'd say yes it is good.It powerful, easy to transport and runs smoothly. It doesn't keep cutting out like those awful electric ones and it's solid. On the downside the instruction booklet is poorly written and confusing. In one instant it recommends using SAE10-30 oil (the machine is shipped dry and is a little bit fiddly filling it with oil) and in another section they recommend SAE15-40. I used SAE15-40 in mine and it works fine.You have to inflate the tyres yourself and don't forget to run mains pressure water through it BEFORE starting the engine.The spool for winding on the hose is daft and far too small to be practical, you're just gonna wind up with lots of wound up tangled hose.I wound mine around the handle AFTER disconnecting the lance first. All in all I'm glad I bought one and would recommend it. Hope this helps you!

These are a fantastic series of books and are part of the recommended reading list for a number of RHS courses. Great quick easy( not too in depth or technical) reference. If you've had others in the series this is much the same and just as good.

Other than a paper clip this is probably the cheapest thing I own. It really is cheap and for 1.50 delivered what do you expect? God it's cheap, looks and feels cheap. It arrived quickly though! Did I mention how cheap it is?!

It's fun and it chips easy!
Mine had a pea sized imperfection in the china clay(?) moulding inside of it sticking out.But I don't suppose that you buying it for the tea set that's brought out when the outlaws come round. So lighten up and buy one!


The Ride of a Lifetime: Doing Business the Orange County Choppers Way
The Ride of a Lifetime: Doing Business the Orange County Choppers Way

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the sort of book that you'll read in a couple of days, you can't really put it down. It really does give another dimension and aspect to what we all know about the Teutils from the TV. It could have done with being a little longer/in depth but doubtless there will be some sort of sequel. Please be aware that it is mostly business orientated as you'd expect from the shows. Overall a good fun read.

The great trampoline pad dilema! Finding a quality replacement pad is an absolute nightmare and this one isn't the solution. It's overpriced and of poor overall quality. Thin padding that doesn't really extend all the way across the width of the pad and a narrow overhang with a draw cord in it that tends to ride up and off of the trampoline frame. I previously fell foul of receiving another brand of replacement pad which when it arrived turned out to be an absolutely livid lime green colour that you just couldn't live with. 12 worth of non refundable return shipping later( Amazon marketplace order, check refunds policy in future) and this pad costing 30 that's now 42 on trying to rejuvenate an 3 year old trampoline that only cost 99 in the first place!Good luck I hope your experience is better than mine has been!
