4.0 out of 5 stars Good tool spoilt by minor problems, easily resolved., 2 May 2014
Since owning this machine, I've contacted Draper about the following items, and they have said that they will ask the factory to take them into consideration:
1) The strimmer line breaks off short much too frequently - solved by re-shaping the exit holes in the aluminium bushes of the strimmer head to a radiused profile rather than sharp angle.
2) When the strimmer head is dismantled to adjust/refill the line spool. 2 washers and a spring fall out. I've made these captive, using RTV silicon for the washers, then hot-melt glue for the spring.
3) There's a gap between the strimmer head and top drive plate that's just the right width to foul and jam the strimmer line. I made a plastic washer to fill the gap.
4) There's no cross-point screwdriver in the toolkit - something you'll need if you want to remove the spark plug.

Once these minor niggles are sorted out, it's a great machine!

What could be better than a programing guide from the man who wrote the language? Brilliant book, worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refurbishment kit, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First port of call if you have no spark - be careful not to lose the small spring and insulator! Does the job, but you also need to fit a new plug and derust the flywheel and magneto, and adjust the gap between them to a minimum for max spark,

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential greenhouse accessory, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does its job perfectly, without it my greenhouse would have seriously overheated during last summer. However, side vents are also needed as a top vent isn't enough on its own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but fragile, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful display for greenhouse, but didn't last the winter - needs to be better waterproofed, due to condensation getting into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good USB hub for Raspberry Pi, 11 April 2014

Some USB hubs don't provide enough power to run peripherals - this one isn't the cheapest on the market, but it does have plenty of power.

I use this for labelling DVDs and for plant labels. It does the job as expected, and I'll buy another one when this one runs out.
