4.0 out of 5 stars Happy to fly around the house, 24 Nov. 2015

Happy to fly around the house, an improvement on the polystyrene planes my daughter loves to play with. The slots are cut a little long, I suspect so tha you can fin tune the flight. This means you have to readjust the wings after every landing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly well thought out design, 19 Aug. 2015

This review is from: Bicycle Stand, Silver (Sports)
This was easy to put together and hold the bike securely. it takes up more room vertically than other stands I have used but occupies about the same floor space. It holds the bike (a hybrid) securely by the front wheel without gripping the brake disc or other senstive parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to read before you start trying to fix your bike, 19 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm very impressed by this book. It is straightforward to understand, explains methods clearly and has instilled the confidence to get on with a series of jobs that I would not have dreamt of tackling before reading it. It seems comprehensive and is split into sections lookingin depth into different areas of the bike (e.g bottom bracket, wheels and tires) making finding what you need easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed and built, 19 Aug. 2015

Sturdy, easy to put together, holds the bike securely and can be rotated easily. Having the bike off the floor and at working height makes a number of the more fiddly procedures, like adjusting derailler alignment, a real joy to perform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, well reseached but not for the absolute beginner, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is now my favourite book about home brewing. the writing style is entertaining and accessible, which is good because, otherwise, the near encyclopaedic levels of information would not be read. Randy Mosher (that is the authors name) takes us through the history of beer, the ingredients used, the different styles of beer and gives some example recipes to use yourself. The section on historic beers hat have been forgotten is fascinating.

It is written for the american audiance but metric conversions are used throughout. The book aims to inspire people to create their own recipes and brews so althogh there are some recipes the thrust of information is on how the different ingredients will affect the brew. This is where the book really shines, talking about unrefined sugars, exotic spices and adjuvant grains. I found it opened up new possibilites with regards to designing recipes. Be warned that the book expects you to have some knowledge of how to brew so not for absolute beginners but for those that have moved from kit brewing to extract and partial grain brewing or who have all grain brewing down pat but find they are lacking some inspirtation this book would be an excellent addition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value headphones, 27 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ear fit is very comfortable and does not slip when running.
The sound quality is adequate for the price.
The cable quality seems appropriate for the price.
The cable is aligned 90 degrees to the jack, this helps prevent sharp jerks from pulling the jack out when on the move. If you are using a bulky running carry pouch for your MP3 player there may not be enough clearance to fully insert the jack - there is about 4mm of clearance.
Overall a good set of headphones that will do the job well but won't set the world on fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and accurate, 27 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use for my home-brewing from grain. It gives a quick and accurate reading that is necessary fo some of the processes involved in this. Additionally I have begun to use it when cooking meat and the sturdy probe and wire, as well as the magnetic backing, leave it is well suited to this use.

Compared wth other digital thermometers I have used it seems far more robust and gives a reading quicker. Overall I am very imrpessed with this.
