Web of Evil (Ali Reynolds)
Web of Evil (Ali Reynolds)
by J A Jance
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the worst books I've ever slogged through, 1 Oct. 2017
This is one of the worst books I've ever slogged through. It's like someone besides JA Jance wrote this. Hubby and I have listened to the entire Beaumont series and enjoyed it a lot.

3.0 out of 5 stars For casual use if you have the time and patience., 12 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's the cheapest electric stapler I could get and I wasn't expecting perfection.

There apear to be two basic problems that cause a significant waste of staples.

The slide that pushes the staples is too thin and or the space in which the staples run is too big.
Also the spring that pushes the staples is too weak.

Taking these two problems into account it is impossible to use all the staples in a strip. It takes half a strip and about 10 to 15% of those will be wasted as a strip smaller than half to three quarters of an inch will cause missfires.

It is very annoying and takes time to sort out the jams and discard the short ends of strips.

I confirm that No.53 staples work, but found that 10mm worked better and with less waste than 14mm.

I have used staplers in the past including hand, electric and pneumatic, and was trained as an upholsterer.

For the price if money is short it's worth the hastle, if you need something for more than just casual use and time is important wait to get something a bit better.

A lot of PZ2s for the money.

Not the most robust but really good value.

Solidly made and standing up to daily use.

Whether the cost will be justified by the time the corners round off is in the balance....

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for us, 15 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is just like having a movable staircase to aid access. The depth and width of the 'steps' would qualify as 'platforms' on many other stepladders.

Heavy enough to feel strong and light enough to still be mobile.

The only real downside is the price. It is definitely worth every penny but outside the budget of most for home or trade use.
