4.0 out of 5 stars Sucking is OK, but pouring doesn't work, 24 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a simple water bottle with a filter placed between the water and the outlet spout. The idea is that, with the internal straw in place, you can suck the water through the filter, or with it removed pour the water.

Well, it doesn't quite work like that. With the straw in place you can, indeed, such the water up, although it is a pretty reasonable suck you need to apply. However, with the straw removed (i.e. in the pouring position) the water just drips through very, very, very slowly.

OK, you can upend and drink, or you suck up through the straw; these options are good. However pouring just doesn't work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good starter set, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good selection of nails that are compatible with various makes of nail gun.

The only issue that I have is that it would have been nice to have the nails in some form of plastic container once they are removed from the cardboard packaging as, once removed and put in the case with the nail gun, they are tending to come apart from their strips with being carried around.

Apart from that - absolutely fine and agood sarter set.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed to cut down to size, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used these on the sanding backing pad that I have for an angle grinder.

They're OK, but I did need to cut down to size before using as they are a slightly larger diameter than the, I believe standard, backing pad that I have.

Once cut down, they are fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value starter kit, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great value starter kit and contains all the disks that you're going to need in the short term, plus two wire brushes.

The disks seem to be of reasonable quality and don't wear too quickly.

A good starter selection and then you can just replace the various elements as you use them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality flap wheel, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This solves the problem that I have had with sanding disks on an angle grinder. The sanding disk hits something a bit ragged and then rips itself apart. With this, there is not such issue, it just continues.

Only thing, and I must be preaching to the converted here, is to wear suitable protection to counter the flying sparks and other debris that may be thrown up.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality replacement blade., 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With a Bosch lawnmower there are two options when your blade has become worn and hit just too many stones. Sharpen or replace.

I do sharpen, but the balance of the blade is eventually too far out and replacement is the only solution. They are not too expensive to keep one 'in stock' at home and they are easy to fit.

Just remember to torque down the new blade sufficiently and, if you do get the blade after the motor has stopped, do unplug and re-check the tightness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good general purpose quality, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yellow sheets for a Filofax. There's not a lot to say really except that these are a good balance between thickness (where you want it thin to make sure your Filofax doesn't bulge too much) and weight to stop it being flimsy.

I use these all day, every day in my Filofax which I treat as a daybook at work, and happily buy more when my stock runs out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, well made, and silky smooth to the touch, 13 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a first rate quality item that I believe may even out live me. It is fairly large in size (about 8 inches long), so only suitable for a desk and not for carrying around in your work bag. It is also quite heavy.

These two properties, however, do make it a first rate desk stapler. The long tail, which you can see in the product picture, means that you have a good mechanical advantage (i.e.leverage) for inserting staples. This means that you only need minimal force to put staples into even thick bundles of paper. Your limit is about 20 pages depending on weight of paper.

The finish is satin smooth which means it has a tactile quality to it.

The only problem is that, being desirable, it may grow legs and walk off from your desk if you leave it out overnight - you have been warned :-)

Recommended and worthy of the 5 stars, even although it isn't the cheapest stapler on the market...

5.0 out of 5 stars As good at the original supplied, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had my daughter lose her HP power supply during a house move, I 'lent' her mine in the hope that hers would eventually turn up.

It hasn't...

On that basis I bought this for my HP printer and it works fine. There's not a lot to say other than it works and it was a reasonable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot bigger than the picture seems to imply, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived in a box about 18 inches square and ten inches high. At first I thought that this was some of the (usual) Amazon overpacking. However, this unit is large and is the full width of the grassbox that it replaces.

In use, you have to set the cut height very high (5.5 on the scale), thus it leaves the grass fairly long. Having said that, the length and the forcing down of cutting mean that the grass should be fairly tolerant of dry conditions in summer.

I must admit that my main reason for buying it wasn't this. Basically, the green waste bin often gets completely full when I have been mowing the lawn followed by some hedge cutting. I wanted this as an alternate way of cutting the grass without having to dispose of the cutting. At this it does excel.

Some, depending on your reason, this might be a good solution for you, but only if you want to leave, or are prepared to leave, your grass quite long.
