1.0 out of 5 stars Would be great if it were legible., June 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this for service information on some tripod jacks that I purchased. Some of the information can be picked out but it is extremely hard to read. It appears that whatever character recognition software was used, it wasn't up to the task. The document contains a variety of fonts in a variety of sizes. Most of the images came out negative.

The seller should really perform a quality check on what they are selling before offering it online.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable and technically inaccurate but entertaining., March 18, 2014
There was some great photography of a historically significant ship but.........
The plot line was thin and totally predictable.
It was incredible how many of the characters had just the right skill needed at the moment.

The good news was that the movie was entertaining enough that we watched it through to the end. This was quite unlike most of the "free" movies available on Amazon Prime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy but sturdy, February 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I needed a seven-hole punch for adding sheets to both Jeppesen binders and a Pilatus AFM. I borrowed a punch marketed by Jeppesen but decided that we needed to purchase one of our own for office. The Jeppesen unit was light weight and compact but would only reliably punch two sheets of 20# paper or one sheet of card stock.

After finding out that the Franklin Covey 22997 punched the same hole pattern I bought one of these. It is not a tool that you would want to carry in the plane due to its weight. It punches through more paper at a shot and feels much sturdier than the Jeppesen unit. Costs a lot less, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the OEM sockets!, November 21, 2013
These sockets worked just fine to replace a melted OEM unit. The provided pigtails are plenty long to splice into the vehicle wiring. Use heat-shrink type butt splices to install them to prevent future failures. Master Appliance 10054 Connector Mini Pack or just get them at the local auto parts store.

These sockets resist heat better than the OEM sockets and appear to have equally good water exclusion capability.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does not work with Android devices, November 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had been using my Droid Bionic with a couple of different flight applications in light general aviation aircraft with good success. When I tried using the same system in the company Pilatus PC-12 the GPS in the phone would not lock on to enough satellites to get position data. This problem seems to be related to the electrically heated windshield blocking the signal.

I got an iPad Mini for use with a popular flight program but it did not incorporate an accurate GPS. Based on the great reviews here, I bought the Bad Elf 2200. It works extremely well with the iPad. It can be placed nearly anywhere in the cockpit and still retain WAAS accuracy. With the great battery life it can be used all day without concern about it dying in flight.

It was hoped that the Droid Bionic could be used as a backup unit but while the units will pair, they will not transfer data. The developer of the Android software worked with me for a while but finally gave up. They said that the Bad Elf is Apple specific and just cannot be made to work with Android devices.

Amazon's advertising does go to lengths to specify which devices the Bad Elf will work with. They should be equally clear as to which devices it will not work with. I hope this review provides that clarification.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not durable, September 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This soaker worked pretty well when I first got it but near the beginning of its second season the inner hose split rendering the soaker useless. Based on one of the other reviews here I found that I could remove the inlet end fitting, cut the hose off just beyond where it was split and reassemble it. The repair process seems to have worked. We will see next spring. Another reviewer suggests drilling a small hole in a penny to use as a flow restrictor. That seems like a good enough idea that Gilmour should incorporate that into the original manufacture. It would be better for them than enduring all of the negative comments and losing sales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only time will tell..........., February 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It will take tens of thousands of miles of driving to really be able to tell how good this stuff is but my initial impressions are very positive. This gear oil was chosen for my differential based upon the published comparative test results and the positive experiences reported by other users.

My old differential began making creaking noises during turns at around 55,000 miles. I added more of the recommended Motorcraft friction modifier to the factory-installed fluid. That quieted the noise for a few weeks, then it returned. I then replaced the factory fluid with Red Line. The creaking went away and has not come back. I later found that damage had already been done to the Trak-Lok differential when running the factory fluid. The fact that the Red Line gear oil had arrested the damage convinced me use Red Line oil from day-one in the new differential.


OXO Good Grips 15-Inch-by-21-Inch Cutting Board, Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Best cutting board that I've used, February 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The non-slip rubber feet are the things that set this cutting board apart. The other plastic boards had a tendency to slide around the counter while being used. Wooden cutting boards that are heavy enough not to slide are bulky and cumbersome.

The plastic is soft enough not to dull knives while hard enough not to be sliced apart by the same. The translucent white color shows any remaining debris that need to be cleaned off of the surface. The perimeter groove on one side is deep enough to catch a substantial amount of meat juice or other fluid. It is also big enough to carve a large roast or ham. The only down-side is that it is too big to fit the dishwasher.

Update: I have to drop my rating by one star. Our knives DO dull noticably faster on this board that they did with the previous one. I don't know if there is a reinforcing material in the plastic that is causing the dully or what.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy application and it works., February 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Many of the RTV silicone formulations available do not stand up to oil. This one does. The mating surfaces on my differential housing had gotten scored from removing and reinstalling the cover. This sealant has done a fine job of keeping the fluid in. It has worked with both dino and synthetic oils.

The tube fits a standard caulking gun. This makes it much easier to apply a uniform bead of sealant than trying to squeeze the RTV out of a toothpaste tube. The nozzle keeps the RTV inside from curing pretty well. If a piece of aluminum foil is formed over the threaded section of the tube and the nozzle screwed over the top of it the material within the tube will stay usable for months.
