Good screw !
20 July 2014
By
, Fife, Scotland
" Best screws I've had in a while ! No shearing, no cam-out, good grip, dig their own countersink. Used them on Ipe deck boards and did a good job. Can't say how long before they rust, if the ever do. I chose them over Stainless Steel because I find StSt shear easily. "

Good performance, good value
3 July 2014

" Early thoughts on this recent purchase: I bought this to replace an old Elu saw that gave me years of good service. I considered buying a more expensive mitre saw but decided on this one. I'm very impressed with it and its features - the pull-out support, the end stop and the laser beam. Cutting accuracy of the 45 deg mitres is perfect. The saw is way better than I'd expected.
However - the dust bag is a joke. Dust everywhere except the bag ! The laser beam can be adjusted, allegedly, but I tried for ages and gave up when I felt it was close enough. The beam is still visible during sawing, unlike another review that said it clogged up. The clamp, as other reviewers have said, gets in the way of the saw on mitre cutting. These irritations stop me giving it 5 stars all round.
If this lasts as long as my last one, or even half as long, I'll be well chuffed.
Too early to review Reliability but looks well made. "

Poor light
12 December 2013
By
, Fife, Scotland
" These bulbs are cheap but light output is very low. I got them for inside a wardrobe, with door switches, just in case the door was left open I didn't want heat build up. At 1W they certainly don't heat up but I wouldn't get any more or use them anywhere else because the light is dim - I was too buying them !!
It used to be easy to buy a light bulb, not any more ! Wattage no longer means anything.

What a bad design
11 September 2013
By
, Fife, Scotland
" Wish I'd paid more attention to the reviews before I wasted my money ! I kept spilling petrol on my first attempt at using it. I kept checking the gasket and checking the funnel was on tight but still the petrol was everywhere. Then I noticed the hole in the funnel. Why the heck is there a hole in the funnel ?! It must be to let air in, but did they ever think petrol might come out ! "

Good value accent lighting
28 February 2013
By
, Fife, Scotland
" Installed these in en-suite and fitted them underneath wall units. Luckily the wall units had a cavity at the back to allow the lamp holes to be drilled without affecting the inside of the units. That cavity came in handy when it came to figure out to hide the long lengths of wire.
Lights are low output but they look good casting a blue tone onto the worktop.
The only problem I had was that the transformer is part of the 13A plug. I now have a 13A socket wired on top of the units for these lights. I'm sure it isn't legal and would have preferred a separate transformer I could have wired into the lighting junction box.
Haven't had them long enough to judge reliability but they worked out the box.

Cheap and effective
6 November 2012

" I've tried various gloves and these are as good as you get. They don't last long but they are easy to put on, good fit, good grip and very comfortable. I have heavier duty gloves too but if heavy duty ones are not a good fit, as they often aren't, then blisters can occur. So I now favour these cheap and cheerful ones "

Log splitting made easy
25 June 2011
By
, Fife, Scotland
" This Woodstar splitter is better and a lot more powerful than I'd expected. It made no difference whether it was a straight grained log or a gnarly knotty one, it makes light work of it. It splits logs that my axe would need a few swings at - good news for my back! It is small and is easy to store in the workshop. It is heavy, so don't try to lift it onto a bench. The ram always returns to the start point so I use a square section piece of wood as a packer when working on short logs. I'd say this was ideal for home / light professional use and quickly works it way through a big pile of logs. Be careful though, tough logs can fly off the wedge when they finally split. "
