4.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you..., 26 July 2014
I only knew DP's music from a couple of mega-hits (9/5, Island in stream, Jolene) so some of these tracks came as a surprise. Now I've got my ear 'around' her sometimes squeaky voice, I've begun to enjoy most of them
PRO BOLT PRO GAUGE BOLT NUT STEEL MEASURING TOOL M&hellip by Pro-Bolt
I used to be able to gauge a machine thread by eye plus a thumb-nail. Faced with a small zoo of different 'Metrics' plus both UNC 'tripod' threads, I decided I needed a proper 'gauge'.

This is a neat sheet of stainless steel, smaller than the picture suggests, but sharp as a steel rule. Please respect the machined edges. It has gauge holes for bolts, plus common thread pitches along the edge.

And, of course, if a bolt thread does not match any of these, it is surely 'Imperial'...
Integral 2GB Secure Digital Card by Integral
5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job..., 18 July 2014
Many 'budget' compact digital cameras and cam-corders seem to run 'legacy' software that can only access 2Gb of an SD card. Any more capacity may cause problems due to the formatting. So, playing around with a 'toy' mini-camcorder that could double as a web-cam and tethered 5Mp 'still' camera (tripod mounted) I needed several cards to supplement its miniscule memory. These 'Integral' SDs did the job.
