1.0 out of 5 stars Careful, this is NO Bargain!, 19 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK it has no battery and no charger....I get that. But no bag, box or container? It arrived in a flimsy cardboard box with minimal packing from which it had partially punched its way out. Even the plastic strapping was so loose it did not need a knife to open. The Scotch tape had also been applied poorly. It all felt 'Couldn't care less'.

There were no instructions which I suspect maybe vaguely illegal.

Therefore there was no advice on which battery to buy (I have used Amazon 'what others have ordered' to order what hopefully will be the correct one) and no advice on which charger. Whether my existing Makita charger will be work will have to wait until the battery arrives.

If I now need a charger (£50) along with the awaited battery (£60) and a box/ bag ((£25?) this is NO BARGAIN.

Looks and feels lovely, but this review is about value for money, description, packaging and content. A poor do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 13 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just spent my first long day with this building a shed outside. A very good buy with two small issues. Very easy to assemble, very easy to transport and it was set up with my Mikita saw. Certainly made the job much easier as I had little difficulty holding 4"X1" lengths well in excess of the recommended maximum of 3m. Excellent value, beautifully wrapped and delivered at lightning speed. Only 4 stars for two reasons; The Mikita does fit, but only just, and then only partially in line with the rollers whichever way I tried and the clamps on both rollers continued to slowly slip down throughout the day in spite of being as tight as I could wind them up. Possibly the latter problem may have been due to the very hot day and the former because I was being a little dim.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely delighted with the speed of service, 1 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a birthday present for a friend who lives in the area covered......absolutely delighted with the speed of service, price and the product, He is still glued to it as he unpicks the fine detail of an area he has lived in all his life. The OS Geology 1:50,000 is an undiscovered gem.....much recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so OK, 12 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived on time and well wrapped, but the cardboard box will not do to as future transport. The jack Is heavy, the handle comes in three pieces and the paint on the jack is brittle. I built a sturdy plywood box in which to keep it all and some ground jacking pads. The attachment of the jacking brackets will have to wait until the caravan comes out of secure storage. If I could have got hold of these separately, I would not have bothered with the jack.......Halfords sell similar for less than £20.

Good value compared with the manufacturers ridiculous price. Tight fit. The little extraction tool is completely useless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Genuine or Fake?, 12 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived very quickly and had a Stanley sticker on it.......not sure if that qualified it as a genuine product. The blade did have Stanley stamped into it, but again as it looks like the dozens of other cheapie versions, I am not sure it is the real deal. No product box, no wrapper, no instruction etc all leave me wondering whether I have simply paid more for a rip off. The blade needed a lot of sharpening and after fiddling around I got it all to work well enough for the job I was doing (replacing a wooden spade handle). Come on Amazon reassure potential buyers as to whether we are buying the genuine article...or not.

A classic geology map that I have wanted for some time. The folded version is very good value and arrived quickly and well wrapped. If you require an unfolded version then head to the BGS Who will send one for three times as much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb., 12 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a Denon fan and this excellent value replacement for our aged CD player did not disappoint. Startling clarity, very very easy to comissision and use its simple elegant styling adds to the experience. It is driven by a Denon amplifier and that may help. Absolute silence behind the music.

Besides being probably one of the finest pieces of musical composition ever, this version is performed with great sensitivity and finesse. A wonder ous thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but no instructions., 12 Mar. 2017

Fast, cheap and no fuss. But, you will have to remember what you did months ago when last faced with a change because this will come with no instructions.
