VARESE Soles for DIY Shoe Repairs in Black Mens and Ladies (Ladies Black Soles)
VARESE Soles for DIY Shoe Repairs in Black Mens and Ladies (Ladies Black Soles)

Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Soleved, 15 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good solution to what I needed it for; maintaining a pair of ladies fashion shoe soles. It is quite thin but this made it quite a lot easier to handle and in terms of adherence to the sole. It is easy to cut/trim. It is sticking and wearing well. Good product for my purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Direction, 15 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was competitively priced and on handling it has a quality feel. It adheres well to my car and my bike; very well in fact and is staying on despite poor weather.

For it to really shine the light does have to be quite directional i.e. you have to be behind the light as in wearing a head torch or presumably in a car with the headlights on. Some other products like the matt silver coloured stuff seem to be able to catch the light without it being so directional.

However all this does have the positive effect of the tape being hardly visible (on a very light blue car) unless light is shone on it. Happy with it overall.

3.0 out of 5 stars sticky, 15 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has slowed down an already slow leak on my car tyre. So in that respect, not bad. The price seems OK. Less positively, I ended up with the contents of the can all over my hands due to it leaking under application.

It did inflate the tyre from flat, which is quite impressive.

Overall not bad but could have done without sticky latex all over my hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars bright idea, 15 Jan. 2017

This has exceeded my expectations. It fits fine in a 2xaa torch that is not an actual maglite. The bulb it came with which was the (very) old fashioned 'krypton' type blew up on first use. I'm glad it did because this is a massive upgrade in terms of performance; brightness and battery life. Glad to be able to locate this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hell hath no fury, 8 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Richard Hell was a key figure in the late 1970s/early 1980s CGBG punk scene in Manhattan. According to him, perhaps *the* key figure. The clothing, the drugs, the sex, the music - that pretty much covers the central topics of Hell's autobiography. And very diverting it is too. There are other themes of course but I'm afraid I started to skip over some of the discussions of poetry, literature, and music, concentrating instead on the drugs and sex. An approach that was also to be Hell's downfall, it seems.

But that's not to detract from Hell's ability to write entertainingly. The scene setting is not bad and I can never get enough of seedy 1970s New York urban decay.

In contrast to his natural habitat in Greenwich Village/Lower East Side, punk era Britain really wasn't Hell's bag of chips and it gets quite a slagging off. Hell hath no fury like a hugely talented but under-appreciated artist scorned and former friends, music biz types, other artists, whole countries, are all worth a moan. Spitting on someone's grave as some form of appreciation; with friends like these eh?

The story of punk is told here from a very personal perspective and there is at least a sprinkling of humour in Hell's writing. As I say, diverting.

Very pleased to be able to get a jumper made in the UK (for now at least - Scotland) for a reasonable price. Nice tight but moderately stretchy weave and colour as shown. Pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars The demon drink, 9 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are made in Britain which is good. Also they are child friendly which is the main reason I am using them rather than pellets. They actually work in contrast to many other non-poisonous slug 'deterrents' (see my other reviews). After a couple of days all three of them are full of slugs who have succumbed to the demon drink. It's not great fun emptying them and they don't absolutely wipe out slugs like the pellets do, but judging by what's in the reservoirs on a regular basis, the slug population is certainly declining.

Unlike some customers I didn't get these to block out daily noise but solely for powertool use up the shed. For this they are fine, although adjusting them is not very easy. I might switch to earplugs in future though because these are not great with spectacles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handle, 9 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gorilla 25ml Epoxy (DIY & Tools)
Used to make a new wooden knife handle to replace a broken plastic one. This seems to have done the job, although only time will tell. In use it is fairly straightforward although for some reason it wasn't clear that you needed to break off the black cap which is held between the two syringe pumps. Once I'd worked that out it was fine and hopefully the cap will work.

It says it works in 5 minutes but although it does start to go off, it isn't really holding until a lot longer and 24 hours is the minimum I would give for the final fix. It's a product that can't be substituted for certain jobs and this was a convenient package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose, 9 Sept. 2016

There don't appear to be that many coloured polishes out there that are goretex friendly so this is an useful product to know about. It performs differently to traditional polishes in that it is very thick and quite sticky - a bit like chocolate spread! It seems to do the job well and the shoes in question are well conditioned. A good price too, not too expensive.
