Stanley 1912 Comb Square 300MM/12In  0 46 151
Stanley 1912 Comb Square 300MM/12In 0 46 151
Price: £20.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Best available, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best set square out there in my opinion. Solid cast iron body adds a good weight behind it making it less prone to moving in use. Stainless steel blade means it's. It going rusty in your tool box. It is a copy of an old fashioned set square that is no longer available and is loved by all of the 'old-school' carpenters (like me!). Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement that shouldn't be necessary, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works straight out of the box. N.B. though; this was bought as a replacement as the previous one just stopped working after 1 year, for no apparent reason. I'm guessing that the , frankly, strange design of the sensor arm eventually let's in water. I'm guessing I'm not alone in feeling slightly uncomfortable with placing a plastic arm, secured only with zip ties, 5 mm away from my spokes! However, with regular checking of its position and of the tightness of the spoke magnet it seems to stay, reasonably, put. So in summary, £30 quid I shouldn't have had to spend but it works, for now. Come on Garmin, you can do better than this!

Timber Frame Construction: All About Post and Beam Building (A Garden Way publishing book)
by Jack Sobon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.48

5.0 out of 5 stars Post and beam by experts!, 4 April 2011
This is a great book with lots of detailed pictures to back up the script. Should be on every timber framers shelf or, for that matter, anyone who is considering having something built in this method too. Very good book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good idea with poor build quality, 4 April 2011
Great idea in principle. I had reached the end of my tether with the local cats using our garden as a litter tray. Not great when you've got little kids using the same space to play in. When this arrived I thought the problem would be sorted for good. It did what it was supposed to do straight out of the box and I enjoyed watching the un-welcome intruders get a soaking and run for it without leaving us a 'little present'. It even caught out a couple of friends when I forgot to turn it off! However, after a brilliant start it just stopped working. The sensor would pick up activity and start the hose, but the sprinkler type system just didn't spray the water so it just made a puddle around itself while the cat got on with it's business. Down to build quality really. I have a 'Hozelock' sprinkler which works on the same mechanical basis but has been going for years with no break downs or issues. Perhaps if the two companies got their heads together they could come up with an outstanding product which would sell millions worldwide. It would be more expensive no doubt but I'm sick of spending money on products that just don't stay the course and I, for one, would be happy to pay more for a decent product. Disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Roof framing for all levels of ability, 4 April 2011
This framing roofs dvd is obviously a program which was made in the days of video (i.e. not made for dvd). As such the image quality might not be up to the standard we have come to expect, it doesn't come near to HD. Nevertheless...The content of this educational film is excellent! It is presented in a clear and logical way which makes it easy to understand both the process being demonstrated (i.e. how to do it) and the reasons behind it (i.e. why it is done that way). In terms of instructional film for timber framers you can't ask for more than that really in a demonstration of this length and it does exactly what you'd expect from it. You can only hope that, one day, you'll be able to be as organized in your workplace as this guy is(...take note!) and be able to fix as quickly as him (without using a nail gun !!) . Would definitely recommend.
