5.0 out of 5 stars Starts well, builds to tremendous, 16 Feb. 2017

This review is from: The Sunbird (Kindle Edition)
Wow. This is two books in one but I'm not saying any more, no spoilers here :) The first half feels a little stilted and somewhat bigoted, but that's because it was written in an age with different values, so is forgiveable. The second part is, well, read the book, it's tremendous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, once you adapt to the spool's hole size, 28 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, I haven't printed very much with it yet, but what I have printed has come out great. It's glossy and seems to behave very well. I'll be buying more of this.

Note: the hole in the spool is a little smaller than most makes -- so it didn't fit on the spool holder of my Kossel Mini for example until I printed an adapter (in Verbatim PLA of course :-). Internal diameter of the spool is approx. 50mm, so smaller than hatchbox, rigid ink and colorfabb spools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Produces tough prints which can be dyed. Pretty well behaved. Great stuff., 26 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This works well. With a thin layer of undiluted PVA onto 80C glass it sticks well, and comes off afterwards if you remove it whilst the bed is still hot.

You can also tie-dye it which is fun -- coil the filament and place concentrated, hot Rit Powder Dye, Scarlet (for example) into a zip-lock bag, then place one part of the coil in the dye for a while, then rinse and repeat with another colour.

You end up with a result like the attached image. Great fun :-)

I can vouch for it being quiet, and it looks as good as in the pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spray works well – no complaints, 22 Aug. 2016

Pure alcohol for (in my case) cleaning the sheet of glass that is the print bed of my 3D printer -- it also gets used occasionally around the house for other cleaning duties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well – recommended, 22 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was concerned when I bought this that it would be cheaply made and so effectively useless but no, it works well and more than a year on I'm still happy -- no complaints at all. No slop, it stays zeroed well, and its behaviour is nice and consistent.

I mostly use it whilst 3D modelling and 3D printing – so for measuring things accurately before drawing them in CAD and for measuring the end result so I can compensate for dimensional errors, for measuring the printer filament diameter and so on, so I need accuracy to a fraction of a millimetre and the calliper has been fine for that. All good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, neat, light, powerful, effective, 22 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this for a year now and it's still ab. fab.

It's powerful, the lead is very, very long, it's low enough to get under things and light enough to carry up stairs, reasonably easy to clean when the inevitable hairs wrap round the spinning brush, and very quick and easy to empty.

It would be nice if it held more muck so it didn't need emptying so often, but then it wouldn't be so light and easy to handle.

Pro tip: if you find it hard to push the head along the floor, elongate the handle to its max – then you're pushing in more of a forward direction and less of a downward direction, and it's correspondingly less of a drag. (Think right-angled triangle with the acute angle getting smaller as the hypotenuse gets longer :-)

Hey, I just used "hypotenuse" in a product review!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source of "fuel", 22 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Think fatty flapjack, but in a good way. :D I take these in my backpack when cycling so I can stop and take on fuel along the way and they are great for that: compact, easy to eat, tasty and strangely satisfying.
