3.0 out of 5 stars Wrench has a short, thin handle, which is difficult to grasp and turn., July 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used this for one project and purchased it for the metric sized sockets. If you are a male of average or larger size, the wrench that comes with the set will likely be too small and flimsy to be useful . The the wrench handle is short and thin, and so difficult to fully and adequately grasp. The only way to complete the fastening was to hold the wrench around its head. My hand is about 3.5" wide and I take a large in a glove. The product description says the wrench handle is about 5." If I use these 1/4" sockets again I will attach an adapter to the the larger handle that comes with my 3/8" socket set. The sockets in the set are decently finished and are made in China.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sex in the psychedelic hippie era?, June 28, 2016
This review is from: Psychedelic Sex (Hardcover)
In the 21st millennium, most picking up this book will find it a curiosity rather than an erotic turn-on. The images (in b&w and color) are largely the soft core variety of naked men and women, often together in contorted sexual positions, showing off their very hirsute private parts. The magazines from which most of the book's images were culled were not documentation have how sex was actually practiced in Haight-Ashbury. The original audience for these magazines were largely horny white middle class men seeking a vicarious experience of sexual freedom, as supposedly practiced in the hippie culture of the late 60s and early 70s--before sex magazines became hardcore. What they were selling is that if you tuned out and turned on you could have all the free sex you yearn. This was just another gimmick for selling vicarious sex to men. I would liked to have seen more documentation and fewer images, which are often repetitive in terms of type and not of the highest resolution. Like all Taschen books, this has excellent production values. The book's paper is heavy but flat with no gloss. The book comes in a slipcase.

1.0 out of 5 stars A long grabber with weak jaws., June 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought two of these on Amazon's Warehouse Deals for about $16 plus taxes. I wanted.a long tool that was heavy duty. These are long enough but far from heavy duty. Don't be fooled by the manufacturer's claim of professional or the number of positive reviews. As many purchasers have noted, this grabber has very weak jaws. One grabber arrived with the tips of the jaws never meeting when closed. I had to bend them back into place. The other grabber's teeth met but not properly aligned. If doing much grabbing of heavy objects with this tool expect some jaw warping. Made in China.

2.0 out of 5 stars There must be better guides to Windows 10, June 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The problem with this manual is that it is published by Microsoft Press. As such it is too often a guide to Microsoft products and services. No mention of third party browsers, internet security or non-Microsoft programs and services. This book is another example of Microsoft's annoying pushy marketing. Early on you are told to setup a Microsoft account. Several pages are devoted to using the Windows app store. A chapter is devoted to Microsoft's Edge, but there is no mention of other web browsers. At nearly 600 pages you often have to go through a great deal of verbal muck to to find out how to perform essential tasks. The author should have divided the book into two parts, with the first part for essential tasks to get your laptop up and running under Windows 10, such as setting up your printer and a wireless network; and installing or deleting third party apps. (The word "program" has been replaced by "apps" throughout this book.) Advice: Need to do something in Windows 10? First try You Tube. Still need a printed guide book? Obtain one outside Microsoft's universe..

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight garden snips for small fruits and flowers., June 10, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
OK for what it does, which is for cutting small fruits and flowers. The Felco F-130 snips are more robust, but also more expensive. I use a 2nd Felco snips around the house for various cutting chores. The Bahco is for the garden and not for general household cutting. Comes with a hard plastic holder.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive collection of canvas tool bags not accurately described!, May 29, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As another reviewer said, inexpensive material and construction, but also not accurately described. You have six, tight exterior pockets on one side. But there are NO interior storage compartments, as claimed. It is one big cavity to dump your tools into. About the same quality and price as the double packaged tools bags sold under the Craftsman label on this site, though the Workpro has interior vinyl coating for moisture protection on the sides, but not on the bottom. This twofer collection of bags seems far less robust than some some of the other more expensive single Workpro bags sold on the page. There is no side or bottom padding to speak of to absorb shocks. How this product got all its 5 star reviews is beyond me. I will be returning my purchase and sticking to the more expensive, but far superior Bucket Boss canvas tool bags.You get what you pay for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light duty garden spade/shovel., April 13, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A light weight garden spade/shovel for light duty use. Says Made in USA, but blade is roughly finished. Shorter than other garden shovels I own. Given weight and size it might be attractive to a lady gardener. If you want to do heavy digging, look elsewhere. At $14.63 an OK buy. Anything tougher will cost you considerably more.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Film And Performance Marred By Poor Sound On This DVD-R Version, September 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Life of Emile Zola (DVD)
No problem with this classic film as it is, with the usual fine performance by Paul Muni. But the viewing pleasure is marred by the poor presentation on this raw DVD-R in Warner Bros. Archive Series. In particular, the sound is often murky, with the level bouncing from decibels too low to too high. A great actor like Muni deserves his own box set, with his films properly remastered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty, frayed cable with exposed wiring., August 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The charger itself worked OK--with a different micro USB cable. As for the included Belkin cable, the sheathing was frayed at one end, exposing the wiring underneath, creating a safety concern. I did not try to use it. The Belkin cable had both a mini and micro USB at one end. But there was no space between them, making it impossible to plug into a device. Both the quality control at Belkin and Warehouse Deals is at fault.This item should never been listed by Amazon
