5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essential for someone who loves the Honeybourne line as I do - the definitive work, and now getting scarce. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just what I needed to tidy up my fireplace. The flex is quite long, the pipe less so.
I was frustrated to see that the attachments from my regular vac (a Miele) do not fit the pipe diameter ! I managed to get a brush head on (really useful) with duct tape, but come on guys, how about some standardisation!

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep me dry, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far these have worked well. It remains to be seen how long they remain waterproof - a similar jacket started to become porous after 5 years. But a better quality (Goretx) is a lot more expensive, so it's horses for courses.
The GORT reference I took to refer to the quality of the trousers, but in actual fact it just refers to the stripes !

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works pretty well, best with dry goods. It clogged up on newly cut willow branches. The bits come out a bit bigger than I expected (1-2 ins long)
Too early to tell about blade life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 5 Nov 2013

A must have for anyone rebuilding a GWR station (as I am :-) )
Maybe more drawings would be useful, and my station isn't in it :-(

My first cordless drill. I had no idea it would be so powerful, I love it. So easy to change the bits, and such fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with this, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite good quality, but smaller than I remember my dad's. The securing rope is definitley an advantage. It could do with a better system linking the two halves, as if you do it up tight, like the other nuts and bolts, it won't close. If I get round to it, I will put in two washers, and loosen the bolts a bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zapped my flies OK, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This piece of kit worked for me.
We get clusterflies in the attic. It's dark up there. I put the zapper up, switched it on, and as I climbed back down through the trapdoor, I heard the first Bzzzzzt :-). Got about 30-40 flies the first time, less as the season for these flies comes to an end. Cluster flies are pretty bumbly, and they go for warmth, height and light.
Can't say anything about bulb life yet, but the package conmes with a spare.

You need an extension lead to plug it in anywhere, as reported elsewhere.

Pretty pleased with the purchase, works well for my circumstances.
