A poor choice
Review of Farrow and Ball Paint by anwar

Advantages: lovely traditional colours, low odour, enviromentally friendly
Disadvantages: very expensive. doesn't wear well

I live in an old house and like to decorate using traditional colours that I feel are sympathetic to the house. Last year I decided that the time had come to decorate the hall, stairs and landing. As we have really high ceilings I knew I would have to ... Read review

Good little impulse buy but really worth it?
Review of IKEA FIXA LI-ION Screwdriver - 7.5V Cordless Screwdriver by leetscram

Advantages: Small and compact, good for simple jobs, good value
Disadvantages: Not sure it is much better than doing things manually

A trip to Ikea is something of a day out. It isn't just a store but you get a whole experience from start to finish with a short break in the middle for Swedish meatballs. It is very easy to end up spending a whole lot of money and we often have to set ou ... Read review

Pozi Pan Head Screws
Review of Pozi Pan Head Screws by danielclark691

Advantages: Secure fitting, affordable, good quality.
Disadvantages: Be careful of the head over time.

First impressions These 'Pozi Pan' head screws have come in very handy for me over the years. They get their name from their shape because they are designed for use with a Pozidrive screwdriver. They have a reasonably flat head and are square on th ... Read review

Never be alone
Review of Anglian Windows by despair

Advantages: Nice product
Disadvantages: So badly fitted as to render the product unfit for purpose

Had these people to replace rooftrim. They put it up over rotten wood. When I discovered this they said I had told them to do this. A blatant untruth. At court, they said this again. I asked for proof they did not provide any and were not pressed to do so ... Read review

Sorry, I didn't fully follow what happened here. Likewise you lost your argument at court so I'm not sure how helpful or wise it is to post your experiences. While I'm sure you have had a horrible and stressful experience one way or another it's probably time to move on. by cr01

DeWalt your grip of that wood
Review of Stanley 983124 FatMax Auto Trigger Clamp by blissman70

Advantages: Easy to use, strong, quick one handed action, duel function
Disadvantages: none really

When it comes to do a bit of DIY sometimes you need three hands, or more. What I'm talking about is when you need to hold two pieces of wood together with one hand, whilst steadying a screw in position with the other, which leaves your third hand to contr ... Read review

Review of Countersunk Chipboard Screws by danielclark691

Advantages: Sits flush, affordable, good quality.
Disadvantages: May not be suitable for a range of applications.

First impressions A screw is a screw, right? Wrong! To a lot of people this is the case because screws look pretty much the same all of the time, though there are different designs and lengths and they are made from different materials. This is for ... Read review

A twist on the traditional screw (REVIEW NOW VISIBLE)
Review of Socket Cap Screws by danielclark691

Advantages: Reasonable value for money, very secure fitting, well made
Disadvantages: Parts being connected require a threaded hole.

First impressions The idea behind the 'Socket Cap Screw' is that instead of using a traditional posidrive screwdriver to drive the screws into the hole you can use an allen key instead. It is a different approach to the screw, though it does have s ... Read review
