    Simple and cheap batteryholder. Good for your homebuilt electronics.

    posted by Mickey101 on 09/26/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    This is a good compact batteryholder which is great for building into a homebuilt electronics casing. The build quality looks pretty good. The walls are about 1mm while the hatch and mounting plate is about 2mm. So it's fairly sturdy. The wearpoints are the...
    Cons:
    Not that many. Mounting the battery on a clip is slightly less elegant than having the attachment points on the case itself but...

    Cons:
    The springs of the clip can something slip out which stop the clip from closing automatically. Easily solved with a pincer. I'd...

    Handy, goodlooking Victorian styled watch

    posted by Mickey101 on 09/01/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It's a pretty watch with nice sharp details on the casing. The hours on the lid make it possible to estimate the time without opening it. The weight is confortable and the size is just right for a pocketwatch. The backlid is easily removed if you want to re...
    Cons:
    The watch is fine but packaging could be better. It's send in a bubblewrap envelope and mine came missing a part. The service a...

    A nice starter set with sufficient types of lockpicks to experiment with. The build quality of the picks is good enough for the purpose. Good price for such a set.

    Simple and effective tool

    posted by Mickey101 on 07/20/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Compact, cheap enough to regularly replace it, soft brush and sponge end. Both well protected from damage when retracted. You can only extract one of the ends at a time which makes sure you don't accidentally dirty up one side while cleaning with the other.
    Cons:
    The brush end is exposed as there is no cap on that side. It's just a tube in which the brush is retracted. This means that dir...
