Am-Tech Heavy Duty Rivet Gun
Am-Tech Heavy Duty Rivet Gun
Price: £18.63

5.0 out of 5 stars The short handles are great for getting in to tight spaces too, 21 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only rivets I use are 6.4mm aluminium, which take a fair bit of effort with any rivet gun.
Very pleasantly surprised with these. I've spent 6 times as much as this on a rivet gun in the past and this is doing the job as well as the more expensive ones.
The short handles are great for getting in to tight spaces too.
Probably done about 500 rivets to date, and still as good now as the first time used.
For the money, if it only lasts 6 months I'll be happy, but no sign of it giving up yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Have always loved Scruffs boots, 21 April 2016

Have always loved Scruffs boots. Comfortable, fit well and outlast most of the other big names. The only issue I ever have with them is the laces, but being a welder it's to be expected!

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for Vodafones data charges, 21 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a £20 phone, but pleasantly surprised. It's does almost everything an iPhone / Samsung will do, but a heck of a lot slower. Almost a snails pace at times! There's a ton of google related apps on it which you can't get rid of, and think this is the main reason it is so slow. There is so much going on in the background that it doesn't have the memory to handle the apps you're using.
Watch out for Vodafones data charges, I munched through a tenner in 2 days of hardly any use.
Bought as a temporary handset while my Blackberry was being repaired.
Certainly not an everyday 'smart phone', but does the job very well as an emergency / second phone

5.0 out of 5 stars nice bright lights with a good range, 2 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
5 stars based on the product itself. It flashes, it spins, nice bright lights with a good range, so all good. The manual is useless. In fact, it's worse than that as it tells you absolutely nothing of any use. Unless you need telling not to stare into the light, or take it in the bath with you. The standard Chinese to English instructions.
Here's my cobbled together user guide.
The switch on the back is for switching from sound to light, to continuous motion. Play with it and you'll figure it out.
The knob is for speed of motor.
That's all you really need to know. Worth the £30 that it cost all day long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive little radio, 14 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The time came when the old FM stereo at work could only pick up Heart FM. After 3 months of having to put up with constant repeats of hideous pop, I decided to bite the bullet and take a punt at DAB. I was a little concerned that having virtually no mobile phone signal, poor digital tv, and even worse FM signal that it wouldn't turn out great. The other thing I was worried about is having previously had a hi-fi system in the workshop, would these little DAB's be loud enough.
It arrived, unpacked and plugged it in and it started scanning....... 63 channels!
I did have to move it a couple of times to find the best spot for it, as some channels were breaking up. Guess it doesn't help being in a steel barn with a steel roof!
Volume is surprisingly good. Just over halfway on the volume is plenty to get over the noise of welders, grinders and bandsaws.
Tone on the radio is good, once you get used to it. Being used to Technics speakers on the old system everything sounded very 'tinny' on this at first, but after 10 mins or so you get used to it.
Overall, very impressed with it so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it!, 7 July 2014
Done some reading up on this on the american BBQ forums, and the guys who actually do bbq competitions say this is the only sauce they would ever use if they didn't make their own. Once you've tried it, you'll know why!

5.0 out of 5 stars For the money, can't go wrong!, 7 July 2014
Brilliant little bit of kit. Bought it for use on the BBQ to take the guesswork out of cooking chicken. It can be a little slow at getting to the correct reading if it is 'close' (it will jump 20 degrees at a time until it is nearly there, then will go in .2 degrees every second until it gets to the correct temp) but can't fault it otherwise.

As all the instructions are in French! Pretty good once you have worked out what the instructions are about, although overpriced from Amazon for what it is

5.0 out of 5 stars Built like a tent!, 30 May 2014

Would not hesitate in recommending. Best cover I've seen anywhere!
Yes, the drawstring is a bit of a pain to get tight as the elastic grabs on the inside of the cover, but apart from that, all good!
