1.0 out of 5 stars M3 Mandrel is no use at all!, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely terrible product if you're planning on using the M3 mandrel

I bought this to install 4 M3 rivet nuts into a model boat, by no means anything excessive.
Well, the order arrived, I went to install the first rivet nut and the first time I squeezed the handle, the m3 mandrel snapped in two, fortunately without deforming the nut so this could be removed from the project.

I contacted Amazon who promptly replaced the item and I went about the process again, this time with more success, the first rivet installed fine, I went to install the second, only for the mandrel to again snap as soon as the rivet provided any resistance. Again, the mandrel had snapped before the rivet had deformed, so this could be pulled straight back out of the hole.

This is a serious flaw with the product, and I've advised Amazon to cease selling this kit, as the M3 mandrel (at least) is not fit for purpose. There may well be softer rivets out there, but if a product comes as a kit with the appropriate sized rivets, then I would expect the product to be up to the job of using those enclosed rivets. Sadly this was not the case and I've had to seek an alternative item to complete my project.

The second/replacement kit is currently on it's way back to Amazon for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great product loved by baby and parents!, 18 Feb. 2014
We bought this as it was the only one readily available with sleeves. We wanted the sleeves as little ones arms were getting sold through the colder nights. From the first night he slept in it without issue and remained warm, arms included.

The only thing stopping me giving this a 5* rating is that, as others have pointed out, it can be difficult to get little ones arms in without poppers, BUT you quickly workout a method that works for you and baby and its no problem after the first few efforts.

We're so pleased with this in fact that we've just ordered the next size as he's starting to outgrow this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly inspirational insight into the life of a motorcycle racer., 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book could be placed on a pedestal as a guide to self motivation and inspiration.

Queen of bikers covers a fascinating insight into Maria's struggle to simply be accepted in a clearly male dominated sport. The highs of world records to the lows or injuries and depression. Maria describes with passion her career from a first time motorcyclist on the road to fulfilling her dream of becoming the fastest woman around the Isle of Man. She provides an insight into the at times fragile mind of a racer as well as the determination that anything is achievable with hard work.

A roller-coaster of emotions what will at differing times have you laughing, wincing, feeling elated for Maria and at other times have you filling up at her latest setback. Told in a very matter of fact manner that encourages you to continue reading.

I can't remember the last time I read a book in it's entirety so quickly, I simply couldn't stop turning the digital pages!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of fun, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb kit, bought as a gift and honestly blown away by just how much the box contained for the price (was on special at the time I purchased it)

As with all Lego and Megablocks kits Children (and children at heart) love it and have had hours of fun with it. Well made and well presented.


Miore UNI004P1W 9 ct White Gold Created Ruby Pendant Necklace on 45 cm Chain
Miore UNI004P1W 9 ct White Gold Created Ruby Pendant Necklace on 45 cm Chain

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, elegant beauty on a budget, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This necklace was bought as a Christmas present, so only time will tell just how good it is, although first impressions are very impressive.

The pendant appears well made, beautifully finished and nicely weighted. It slides freely around the chain, ensuring it always sits right. The chain itself, as others have said does appear rather fine, but at the same time seems very strong too.

Simple, elegant beauty on a budget

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book of Great Recipes using sensible ingredients, 18 Sept. 2013
This book allows you to create some wonderful dishes with the equipment and ingredients we're all used to. Too many books cater for "fashion" or "High End" ingredients or require a chemistry lab to cook. This book is full of recipes using more modest ingredients including budget cuts like pork belly and ox cheek. Yes some recipes may incorporate an unusual ingredient, but so far I've not found anything not stocked by a general supermarket. There are a list of equipment that could make things easier, but again, nothing I've found so far would prevent you being able to make these recipes with standard kitchen equipment.

Overall a worthwhile cook book that will GET USED as opposed to taking up space and looking pretty on a shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Idea, Wonderfully Produced, 6 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read the reviews on here, I decided that I'd take the plunge and buy these as a novelty keepsake to give to my wife for our First Wedding anniversary. Well they've arrived and I'm really pleased with them, the quality is fantastic and they're packaged in a lovely clear cellophane bag (no longer the tissue paper mentioned in earlier reviews) which makes it easy to open to allow completion of the vouchers.

I would agree with others when they say a couple of extra blank vouchers would be a bonus, however this does not detract from what is a wonderful item at a fantastic price.

Delivery was extremely prompt also.
