Toolzone 2Pc Plastic Vernier

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so much vernier as verynear, 24 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toolzone 2Pc Plastic Vernier
Great for keeping in the car so you can check the pipe diameter or thickness of something whilst at B&Q.
Great for kicking around the job site to do the same before you set off for B&Q.

Anyone who writes a review saying these are not good enough for serious measuring is
a) correct
and
b) an idiot for thinking something this cheap is even intended for serious measuring.

I have a perfectly calibrated set of digital verniers for that level of detail sat next to the lathe. These are NOT for that purpose, so dont give a one star review because you can't use them to a thousandth on an inch!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Bomb, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is the 'bomb'. It's an awesome drill.
I had a brace of Makita 8391 18V Ni-Cad and I loved them, but as is the way of all Nicad's they just don't hold their charge anymore. I have a Dewalt SDS wired drill which I also love, so when the time came and I had to buy new - this choice of Dewalt was based on review and reputation. And I think it was the right thing to do. This bad boy has lots more torque.... lots more.... in fact its almost dangerous, you could easily burn your hand, or twist a wrist - but my word what a tool.....!!!!!!!!!
It does everything a normal cordless would do - but the 3 speed really does add range and torque. Despite that the trigger is still very sensitive. The body is light, but battery does add a big lump of weight, and although it is fairly well balanced, life would get very difficult if you were using it one handed or at arms length for any period of time. The Hammer action is easily good enough for wall fixings and general DIY work - and the battery life and charge rate is unbelievable. It is not the cheapest drill on the market, but in my world a cordless drill is one of the most important and most used tools I have, so spend a little more here, and if you have to, skimp on the lesser used items. This drill is easily the best I have owned.! If there is a negative, it has to be the weight - so I would probably use a smaller drill for lighter work.

whats not to like. it is a precision piece of hardware. I sometimes shop from RDG tools direct, and sometimes use my Amazon account for convenience, but its a proper tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars really good kit, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
having a taper and plug tap means you can take your time and not overload the tap- avoiding breakages. Use cutting lubricant and the correct sized hole and they seem very good for new taps in gun metal, brass, and mild steel. although I use my own tap driver, not the one in the box. its fine for the dies, but you need to use the adapter discs and thats a bit of a faff.

5.0 out of 5 stars very well built, 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
given the price I expected this to be a bit weedy, and the drawer rollers be a bit stiff and jerky. As with many other reviewers though, I can confirm that it is very well built. We have three much more expensive 'branded' cabs in the workshop, and none are significantly better. In fact the drawer mechanism on this one is as smooth as the best of the others, and the 'close' on this one is more positive than all. That said you cant slam the drawers, they just bounce open - you need a gentle but firm push to close them properly. The biggest negative is that the lock is hit and miss - if the drawers are not closed properly they don't lock, although the key almost always turns fine, so you can get caught out.
There are two swivel castors and two fixed. This aids stability but does mean you cant get it shoved back against a wall without a lot of 'shunting'. but the box still gets five stars based on the high quality against the low price

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect if you are OCD with your tools, 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great cheap plastic holder. in two parts. its not that easy to read the numbers (tiny blue raised lettering on a blue background), and when full it can be a bit fiddly to get drills out - but it cost less than £7 and holds about a squillion different sized drills....
Perfect if you are ever so slightly OCD with your tools, however, if your OCD is the same as mine, you will also need to buy drills to fit in ALL the holes....


STOREINBOX New Dial Test Indicator Gauge Scale Precision + Magnetic Base Holder Stand
STOREINBOX New Dial Test Indicator Gauge Scale Precision + Magnetic Base Holder Stand

5.0 out of 5 stars teeny gauge, but not fiddly in use., 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
teeny gauge but ideal for model engineering work. All components decent quality, and despite the small size, not fiddly in use. The stand grips well and the magnet is strong enough for the entire rig. The indicator has a dovetail on the rear and the top, and there are two dovetail options, one for the stand and one to provide a straight shaft. I bought it specifically for use on my Mill Drill and its perfect for that.


100mm (4") Digital Height Gauge with Fractions
100mm (4") Digital Height Gauge with Fractions

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality for the price., 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
decent quality for the price. ideal for occasional use in the model workshop. uses the CR3032 battery. it doesnt have 'auto on' which my other digital calipers have - but that runs the battery down, so this is preferable. It says 'with fractions' which is a bit confusing. It does show fractions of a measurement using the '1/2' or '1/4' notation, but still displays imperial measurements in decimals of an inch... EG if a work piece is 6.35mm and you switch to 'inches' the display will read 0.025 of an inch not 1/4".
The scribe is a square section, so its not so easy to mark unless you use the corner - OK for a 'mark' but for a long scribe i use a separate scriber

5.0 out of 5 stars The rubber has not torn off yet - which is a testament to the build quality., 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great vice jaws. magnetic, so really easy to fit and hold on the vice. The rubber is very soft though, and the work piece can twist and pull the rubber - so some care is required to use them when appropriate, and not all the time (My son keeps using them for everything - and thats not what they are designed for. they have therefore already had more abuse than they deserve and the rubber has not torn off yet - which is a testament to the build quality.
