Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was for the robins as a mealworm feeder but they didn't like stepping into a cage at first so I put it up on two bricks. Now they just hop in but with the extra height blackbirds use it too and the pigeons keep out. A paper plate underneath deals with the spillage. The powder finish is durable but cleaning it all in the cold is a pain. There's a loose central spindle with wingnut that keeps it all together but getting it through a tight hole in the baseplate to finish the assembly is murder. Set aside a warm evening with lots of workspace to reassemble this thing after cleaning. I never will. The five stars aren't from me, they're from the birds. They love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saves space and effort, pleasant to handle, 11 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gardman Peat Free Compost 60ltr
Lazy gardener, very little space. I thought I could use a bit at a time: be warned, using a ripsaw, the dry brick is tougher than wood; but it softens quickly and nicely. Also, out of laziness, I chucked it about partly hydrated to let the rain finish the job. They don't recommend it but it worked for me. And unlike regular compost, I could then pick up what I spilled and chuck it where it was meant to go. More like fine mulch than regular compost but very pleasant to handle. Easy to tuck around emerging shoots. So, no messy spills, no back breaking lugging leaking sacks from the garden centre. I'm going to stick with this.

2.0 out of 5 stars SPOILER ALERT! Puzzle secrets revealed!, 18 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The wrapping promises instructions, which aren't there, that's half the fun. Something to work out that looks simple but isn't. There's the slats, one set only drilled on one side, must be the top, a set of uprights on their own and a set of paired uprights loosely screwed together, one of each pair shorter than the rest. Must go together! Wrong! The journey starts here! Late at night and just wanting to put the shoes away, start from the bottom and work up.. and you're left with the top uprights, already screwed in, which can't be secured to the top slats/ Should have thought of that, dummy! See, it's an IQ test and now I'm not going to grammar school. The graduate work begins when you undo your previous effort and some of the threaded sockets come out of the uprights above them, now permanently securing the uprights below. So a complete 3-D workout putting the pieces together in a new, random, unique configuration. Why didn't I learn more from my trips to IKEA? But it's there now now, a delicate, airy structure made of the finest matchstick wood, like a softwood house of cards, decorated with a very few of my lightest bits of footwear.

This review is from: Shift (Audio CD)
Outstanding production by an accomplished pop musician. The tone colours are evocative, the counterpoint and rhythmic effects of phase shifting are beautifully executed and there is a version of Slow Motion Sound (featuring a blackbird) a piece which Reich did not himself perform after composition. Not as sparse as Reich's own arrangements but rewarding, incredibly rich for 'minimal' music and always revealing more to repay repeated listening. More than precise and cerebral, utterly enjoyable on any level, bringing the rarefied ideas of Reich into the vivid tonal landscape of Riley, Glass and Nyman. A joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Bought to recover years of fluff, 18 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing! Bought to recover years of fluff, dust and lint under the bed that a vacuum couldn't deal with and where there was no room to push a manual sweeper or the trusty hard-bristled broom.Surely too lightweight and low-powered I thought as i turned it on, but it's powerful enough to really sweep a carpet without damaging it, and keeps going for ages. Being light and really quiet makes it a pleasure to turn to: no noise or awkward cable. The screaming noise and smell of vacuums really puts me off Takes a little getting used to-let the tool do the work-it doesn't need to be pushed hard (duh), just moved forward gently. As with any sweeper I've used, it can spill from the pan if dragged backwards, but it really is light enough to lift, even for an old creaky bloke. Just put it on the messy bits and they disappear. Astonishing value.

Again, as others, bought it to use in the car. It's holding hundreds of albums in a micro SD I put in it and plays them well via a convenient short jack lead supplied. It's a little odd having to press left and right buttons to move up and down in lists (up and down are volume only) but for the price this is a little gem.

Rather baggy (this is a fat man talking) but sturdy. Larger in the waist than expected and a bit long (oh well, look at the picture)

Well-made, warm and substantial, so many woollens are flimsy these days (Why? It's not as if farmers are overpaid for the wool). This should be a favourite for years as advertised.

One star for the authentic looking hologram. Maybe it's a genuine battery, if so it's an antique. Even after charge lasts less than a day with light use, goes flat quicker than the two year-old unit it's supposed to replace. Seriously unsmileyface
