5.0 out of 5 stars Does a basic job well., 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price, it does an acceptable job of ensuring there are no crossed wires or poor connections in the plugs. Not checked it with all possible connection issues but, as a continuity checker, it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily applied and finish looks good., 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Applied the coating in a couple of hours towards the end of the summer (2014) and it went on easily using Acrypol squeegees (separate purchase). Only gripe is my own ability to keep the stuff from spilling over the edges of the flat roof. That has resulted in a couple of places where the Acrypol has left unsightly adhesions on the fascia (and that is also a testament to how sticky the material is!) Now waiting for better weather to work round and attempt removal of the excess material.

My son and I used a chalk-line to mark out the roof in 1m squares which was extremely helpful when gauging the spread of the Acrypol. I can recommend that as a basic technique to ensure coverage as per tin instructions.

One other thing, we had three unopened tins of Acrypol from about three years ago, one of which we used to complete the coverage. On opening, the contents has separated but were easily recombined by stirring for a few minutes. The outcome looks and feels the same as with brand new tins.


Dower & Hall Jewel Sterling Silver Faceted Chalcedony Teardrop Pendant on Belcher Chain of Length 46cm
Dower & Hall Jewel Sterling Silver Faceted Chalcedony Teardrop Pendant on Belcher Chain of Length 46cm
Price: £49.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable quality for the price., 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The craftsmanship is ok but there is a difference in quality between the two sides with one looking a wee bit better than the other. I expect that is reflected in the price. The stone is OK too. No obvious flaws in the one I received and it was appreciated as a present - which is what counts in the end :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and great for flat-pack furniture assembly, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This gets used daily. Bought another one for my son who has moved into a new flat. It is great for assembling flat-pack furniture!

Good quality feel of all components that doesn't seem to have diminished with the kit I've been using for over a year now.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's standard fuse wire., 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bulk Best 5-15-30 Amp Fuse Wire
I'll only know if it works when it errmmm, "works"

Seriously though, it's standard fuse wire and now lives beside the fuse board.


Konig FTP Cat6 Solid Core Network Cable on 50m Reel

2.0 out of 5 stars Item Not as described, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cores are easily identified even when untwisted. IDC connection worked OK so the insulation and core thicknesses are OK.

Please note that there is an issue with the supply of this item. The listing in Amazon clearly shows "solid core" cable and the delivered item was stranded. A few others have also had this problem.

Am-Tech 8oz Steel Claw Hammer
Am-Tech 8oz Steel Claw Hammer
Price: £4.53

4.0 out of 5 stars Only a minor issue with the claw, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a SMALL hammer! It's light and adequate for simple tasks around the home e.g. hanging pictures and driving in small nails, panel pins and sprigs. Fits quite tidily into medium sized tool kit.

Only issue I have with it is that the claw feature doesn't come to a particularly sharp "V" and it couldn't help me remove a small pin from a piece of wood. Ended up using pliers. If the pin/nail head is smaller than about 2.5mm you'll struggle to get the purchase needed to remove it.
