5.0 out of 5 stars A pro's set of pliers, 21 Dec. 2006
I work in maintenance and these tools are well made, and just the right size for me, but the snips are smaller than they seem in the picture or the ones you buy separate, although you would pay the same price for those snips as you will for this whole set. Don't get me wrong, flex is no contest but 6mm twin and earth and the like will need two passes to chop through, its just if you need those larger snips day in and day out.

All three pliers have been use to cut, grip, snap and bash all sorts of materials and they have stood up well to the task, they are still sharp where they should be, and come together flush where they need to.

You could do much worse than getting a set of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money., 21 Dec. 2006
This is good for the price, you can crimp on ends, chop wire or cable and bare-the-ends too, but the best thing and the reason I bought it was so I can cut bolts down to size (long faceplate bolts etc) without destroying the thread on the bolt.

If you do a lot of crimped ends then buy a ratchet crimper, if you need an all round tool get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sparky 'bible', 21 Dec. 2006
Well this is the fount of all knowledge relating to electrical installation to BS7671 and if you are doing an electrical course then this will allow you to revise so much easier than using the college books and not having the book to refer to whilst at home. You'll also need a copy to show the inspector for 'Part P' registration, that is if you can't borrow a mates copy.

Just keep in mind 17th Edition is rumoured to be out the 3rd quarter of 2007 so if you can wait, it may save you to keep the cash and use it to pay for another update course you'll need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't the body great?, 21 Dec. 2006
This book is really good at getting someone from basic biology to understanding how the body works. The book flows through from cells to organs and then onto how the organs work together, just so that you can still be alive to read this review!

It does try to make light of things, with jokes here and there (you may even giggle at some of them too) and also lots of examples to help things sink-in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quizmaster’s book, 29 Jan. 2006
This really is the best book for all the fact-hoovers out there. It brings together information and facts that are to some pointless, but to others captivating. An excellent read or reference tool it will take pride of place next to ‘The New Penguin Factfinder’ to have almost any general knowledge question covered.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for the factfinder, 14 Jan. 2006
This review is from: The Penguin Factfinder (Paperback)
For people who have questions on everything, this book will have the answer on near any subject. This book covers from pesticide pollution by country to Pulitzer Prize winners since 1918. Tug of war world championships winners to silhouette illustrations of all international space launchers.
It’s a book you will come back to again and again or just as easily read for entertainment.
