Olfa MC-45/2B mat/mount board cutter
Olfa MC-45/2B mat/mount board cutter
Price: £23.38

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very nice cutter, if a little expensive. Easy to use with good results.

Taking into account the cost of mounting card and the amount of waste from unused offcuts then buying pre-cut mounts is easier and, unless you need lots and lots of them, probably cheaper too ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Effective, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Workmanlike dimmer. Better for pre-setting to a constant level of illumination than for frequent re-adjustment: the knob is not all that easy easy to turn when a plug is present in the socket!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 6 April 2013

We bought this to go at the end of our bed. The capability to adjust the image according to whether one's line of sight is level with or below the height of the screen allows the image quality to at its best at whatever level it is mounted relative to the viewers eye level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading - but slightly polemic!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not one of von Mises more objective essays but as always, frank, to the point and instructive. von Mises is analyses of political economies are well worth studying and shed more than a little light on the present state of western economies and the gross incompetence that has led us into them.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but a bit fiddly, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works perfectly well when properly connected but it takes a bit of extra care to ensure that unintended tension in the cable does not cause the wires to pull out of the terminal block. Good value, though. Don't be put off just because I am a butterfingers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing special but perfectly good and seemingly robust products to the exact sizes specified. Used in conjunction with mounts also bought on line (I use Merlin mounts) there is absolutely no need to think about making your own picture frames ever again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing example of precision engineering!, 1 Feb. 2012
This is the best pencil sharpener I have ever used. I am an avid consumer of traditional pencils and this machine allows me to sharpen pencils of up to five different diameters to an adjustable degree of sharpness. The sharpest setting delivers pinprick points even with a normal angle of cut but there is also a fine point option for precision drawing work which is even better! The rotating stand is cleverly designed to adjust the angle at which my pencils are inserted from vertical to about 15 degrees from vertical (which is my preferred setting). It does not require a second hand to hold the sharpener still whilst it is in operation: I just insert my pencil and it is sharpened without any tendency for the sharpener to slip along my desk. Both the transparent cover to the sharpeneings chamber and the cover to the battery compartment are exact snug fits, making them easy to remove and replace and yet secure when the sharpener is in use. This is a well-engineered product and I am surprised that it is available for such a reasonable price.
