Caravan Wastemaster Waste Hog Storage Bag - blue
Caravan Wastemaster Waste Hog Storage Bag - blue
Offered by Oasis Caravan & Camping
Price: £9.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Usable, but its a bit too short for a Wastemaster, 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems OK, but it would be better if it was a little longer as its a very tight fit for a Wastermaster and so not easy to use

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, easy to use, with care., 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to assemble, but quite heavy. I screwed the base to a wooden platform with 8cm screws as I didnt want chunks of concrete slab around. It is very stable, but don't expose it to gusty breezy conditions and don't over-crank it. Good quality materials, well made and good value. Make`sure you get the right bolts in the right holes or the parasol will not revolve. Instructions could be clearer.


SunnGas Uno Portable Stove

4.0 out of 5 stars No problems with mine, works well and safely in normal use., 13 July 2015
Excellent little stove, so dont know quite what the other reviewers were doing to make it explode. Perhaps the gas canister was not installed properly as it is important to follow the instructions in block capitals on the stove itself, to the letter. It cooked evenly under a big pan, easy to control and comes with a plastic brief case, which, admittedly is not of top quality, but hey, its a very very cheap stove. It is worthy of note that this exact stove is sold under several different brands, including Camping Gaz, where it gets reasonable reviews. Gas cooking with canisters lie this is bound to be fairly expensive. Importantly it seems very stable in use and so is less likely to fall over with a hot pan on top, it easy to light and use (spark ignition) and is reasonably robust. Like any canister powered cooker, I suggest that you turn it off, let it cool down and then turn off all other heat sources when removing the empty canister.

My preferred leader, seems to work well for me. Don't like fluorocarbon and this is easier to tie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent sander for heavy work., 4 Feb. 2015
Excellent piece of kit, really effective, hefty and strong. I bought it to strip 40sq m of oak flooring. No need to pay £278 for it, found it for just over £200 at Screwfix. Belts are not too expensive either. I didn't find that the dust bag worked very well on a big fooor, probably far too much dust to cope with using 60 grade belts, but it's fairly simple to tape a vacuum cleaner to the bag outlet which makes the entire operation dust free, except for emptying the vacuum cleaner. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its fine., 19 Jan. 2015

Its a riot....
Convenient, compact tow-ball cover, not too big, works well.
However.....
It never ceases to raise a smile; a friend's wife was standing by me as I pressed the un-retract button on my tow bar. With a whirring sound, the tow-ball appeared from beneath the rear of the car wearing its little red cap like some erecting phallus. She nearly choked on her coffee she was drinking at the time!!! ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hardware is Very Good....., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The hardware seems very good and I am marking it on that alone; I just have an innate dislike of the childish presentation of Microsoft everything in the belief that makes it use friendly.

I bought this for business purposes only and like most MS software it assumes to a large extent that you also bought it as a teenager's toy. Maybe that's the US way of doing things but all the irrelevant trivial stuff you have to hack your way through is irritating.

I also hate the assumption that you want to store all your stuff in a Cloud because (a) I will never be convinced that its secure to rely on and (b) that you will always have access to the internet at a decent speed. We don't all live and work in big western cities.
