Draper Expert 45574 450 mm 46 cc Petrol Chain Saw
Draper Expert 45574 450 mm 46 cc Petrol Chain Saw
Offered by Just off base
Price: 177.76

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid chainsaw, 14 May 2014
This is a good solid chainsaw that starts easily with or without decompression. It's let down slightly by a flimsy choke button that doesn't have a mid-point detent point and a small toggle type kill switch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent axe, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This axe is an excellent well balanced tool. The edge is very sharp and durable. Re-sharpening of the flat edge is relatively easy with an oil stone. Don't ruin it with the Fiskar axe sharpener!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality materials and sloppy construction, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting better quality from Record Power but this grinder is no different from all the other cheap imports. Both wheel guards were distorted and rubbed on the 40mm wheel. The tool rest is flimsy and out of square with the wheel.
Because of the useful wide wheel I felt it worthwhile spending time and effort getting it sorted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job!, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The software loaded easily onto Windows 7 and the user interface is intuative and easy to navigate around. The scanner itself is well made and is quiet during scans. The quality of the finsihed scans is as high as you need and all aspects are controlable.
You can even access mini-tutorials at each stage of the scanning process. I found this very helpfull when I first started using it.
I definitely recommend you choose the model with infra-red dust and scratch detection and repair - it works very well.

Bissell Steam Shot Handheld Steam Cleaner

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost useless, 24 Nov 2012
Only generates enough steam under pressure for about 10 seconds work. Then you have to wait a further 15 seconds for to get up to presure again. Even when it is producing preesurised steam the cleaning effect is minimal.
I've gone back to a bowl of hot water and detergent and its gone back into its box.

These trousers use good durable materials, are well put together and match the jacket well. They are easy to wear, comfortable with sufficient velcro adjustment at the waist and ankle to make fine adjustments.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good pocket DAB that could have been excellent, 22 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent well constructed portable DAB radio with excellent sound quality. The buttons and joystick are easy in the dark and the user menu's are easy to navigate. The favoutite stations are easy to save and select.
I have two minor criticism's;
1. The earphone socket is in the side which make it awkward to slip into a shirt pocket.
2. It doesn't have a speaker (unlike the smaller and better thought-out Roberts Sports DAB).
