KOH-I-NOOR 2mm Diameter Short Mechanical Clutch Lead Holder Pencil - Red
Offered by Atromost
Price: £4.20

4.0 out of 5 stars For special Purposes., 6 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this is a bit tinny in feel and undersized for a hand held pencil It certainly is for my hands. But I bought it specifically to use it in a very large PIN GUIDED artificial radii wooden beam compass I have a need to make where it can be permanently fixed into the drawing head so only the lead needs changing or extending. For this purpose its small size and simple construction are perfect though the clip will most likely have to go.

I couldn't find the hanging bracket - the company told me it was probably inside the horn. YES it was stuck fast inside the HORN. That problem solved all I have to do now is drill two holes and fix the hanger to my wall. The Extinguisher looks wonderful a really nice red finish with instructions on the cylinder. I bought this after reading about the tower fire- I don't live in a Tower block but I realised I had a number of bottles of paint solvent in the house and should have bought an extinguisher years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the best finish., 30 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Surprisingly effective - I had several walking foot sewing machine feet with a black finish I found hard to see to follow a line - but a few rubs on this block polished off the surface finish to leave bright metal and a really smooth sole. I used sewing machine oil as the lubricant , without it the block tended to stick. The block also polishes my block planes where the fingermarks tend to rust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive but superb., 30 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inexpensive lightweight and not from a well known manufacturer - I hesitated to buy this but liked the shape the dayglo orange colour and the mechanism - the ratchet is similar to that on my long loppers. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it cuts tough woody branches and how well the ratchet works. It fits my hand well and the large finger guard does not touch my knuckles - I wonder about some other designs that look they were built to be held by the dreaded THUMBCATS not humans. The only part I did not immediately like was the sliding lock though once I had got used to the action it does make sense that it needs two hands to open and close this and the slide button never got in the way once I started cutting.
I particularly like the curved jaws they stop one from tring on oversized branches but grip the reasonable size ones and prevent slide off. Like other ratchet tools these can be used either like scissors to cut thin stalks or with a sudden percussive action like an axe to cut hard branches

I prefer these to the Pentel Ain Stein leads which are for me too smooth and slippery - I don't know what the difference is so this is totally subjective

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice tool . The only Quibble is that the universal tool grip can work loose if one is doing a hard job on steel - I sawed two sides off an immoveable retaining NUT on a sewing machine pulley with it and had to do the saw tool up twice. But the shaft thread was not damaged and a new 5/8th nut replaced the cut one on the new smaller pulley.. The machine is ideal for these hard inaccessible jobs where a hacksaw will not work. The teeth on the saw blade are still very sharp and none broke off. The machine is not that noisy its well balanced and easy to use. Blade changing is easy . Personally I would use it on wood plastics and aluminium and only for emergencies on steel

Looks good on the wall and holds my swan iron supplied with two 50mm screws which is nice as I was not sure what length to use. One should of course use Rawlplugs in the wall.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I may actually use this tool as a cultivator soon but it is also very useful as a hook for pulling down Bamboo stalks so they can be topped.. Well made and strong though the securing screw on the head might be a weak point and I may replace it with a self tapping SS one. The tines are as described round and not sharpened to a wedge but that is easy to do with a file or angle grinder if it needs it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would give these a 5 - because they work and provide a much better light than the Incandescent bulbs they are meant to replace IN AN INDUSTRIAL SEWING MACHINE LIGHT. However they may have been opened by Customs because one of the boxes was in a damaged state. The bulbs are OK though the cooling fins are slightly sharp being milled from Aluminium and the white diffuser can be screwed off - presumably for cleaning but the thread is easy to cross thread so it needs to be done carefully. Inside there are 4 high power LEDs.The E27 thread is a good fit in the lamp and it does not get hot in use. If you can spare the time to wait 2 weeks for these bulbs to arrive I would recommend them unless you are sewing flourescent dayglo materials as these glow brighter under the LED than the old style inkey. They are 1/4 the price of the nkey bulbs and last 10 times longer using 1/3rd the power and giving a much brighter flatter light.
