The Construction of Houses
The Construction of Houses
by Duncan Marshall
Edition: Paperback
Price: £31.44

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clearly explains all aspects with lots of colour photos and diagrams. Covers both current and historical (mostly going back to the sixties) methods of construction. Really useful in construction, repair and when considering a house purchase (to understand what you're buying!).

3.0 out of 5 stars Average, 28 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a number of clippers so have some experience of DIY cutting.
Pros:
good battery life between charges.
Short charge time.
Wide range of cutting lengths.
Cons:
difficult to see cutting length numbers.
Easy to accidentally change cutting length while cutting (poorly placed sliding adjuster).
Difficult to get an even cut possibly due to cutting guide flexing in use (as reported in other reviews). Probably also caused by poor design of pivoting cutting guide (this is a 'gimmick' that adds nothing to its useability).
Conclusion:
If the great battery feature was incorporated into a conventionally designed clipper then we would have a very good tool. As it is, poor design is all too evident in this model.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good with caveats, 22 April 2012

Photos lack sharpness (generally, scanned size is 500 to 900kb) but for speed + simplicity + price, I would buy again.
My approach is to get them all digitised and if there are any that have any merit, I'll get them professionally processed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant price, 17 Aug. 2010

A top quality DIY router at £60. Smooth action, good soft start and well made - a bargain! One quibble: the light only comes on when you start the motor. A seperate light switch would have been good (so the light could be used to position the work piece). Also, in common with other routers, you have to tape the switch in its on position to use it with a router table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying, 17 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent little book full of ideas - mostly on constructing jigs - that'll get you thinking about making the most of your router. If I had bought this first I'm not sure that I would have needed to buy a router table. The illustrative sketches may not always be of a professional standard but at this price, it's not a consideration.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 17 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reasonably solid although I certainly can't see it lasting the 30 years that the previous workmate did. Designed down to a price but probably better than many cheap benches. (Assembly instructions are printed on the back of the box).
