    A useful 60x microscope with illumination, white and uv.

    posted by Perumal on 02/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is a folding type microscope with one half housing the microscope, and the other half with the batteries, switch and two LEDs, one white and the other ultraviolet. When it is set straight you can stand it up on the table and use it as a lamp. To use it ...
    Cons:
    Only one that I could find: the battery door does double duty as switch, so while turning to the "OFF" position it is...

    A very useful set of accessories

    posted by Perumal on 02/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A nice selection of mounted, ready to use tools together with three spindles with replaceable heads. The resin disks break easily, and there are about thirtyeight of them packed. The supplies will last a long time.
    Cons:
    Only one spindle is provided for the grinding disk, cutoff wheel, sandpaper disks and polishing pads, so it would involve some ...

    Solid hook with the wire exiting from the side

    posted by Perumal on 02/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The hole for the wire is at the side of the top cap, so the thumb pressing it to open the hook is not interfered with. The metal part inside takes solder easily and has a hole to receive the wire. The top part may be used to bend over and grip the wire to ...
    Cons:
    None.

    Light weight tripod suitable for small camera

    posted by Perumal on 02/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely light in weight, and functional small tripod, with a ball head so that the camera can be poised in any direction. A cutout on the side enables the camera to be turned on its side for a portrait shot. It does not add much weight in a camera bag, ...
    Cons:
    Light weight comes with lack of stability, so it is suitable only for small cameras which do not make it collapse. If the came...

    Sharp blades, plastic and aluminium handle

    posted by Perumal on 02/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Six blades are included with different shapes, and an aluminum and plastic handle. The part that holds the blades is plastic, and it screws into the aluminum tubular handle. A sleeve bears against the plastic holder to grip the blades. The blades seem to b...
    Cons:
    Since the blades are made of some sort of non-rusting steel they do not hold their edge very well, as much as blades of harden...

    Handy, useful tool as an accessory to sewing

    posted by Perumal on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use it mainly for trimming the end of thread before threading a needle. Fuzzy ends on frayed threads make it extremely difficult for the thread to go through the eye of the needle the first time, and this little scissor will put a sharp point on the threa...
    Cons:
    The cutting edges are ceramic, so brittle and liable to break if dropped.

    A nice ornamental mechanical watch at a great price.

    posted by Perumal on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Jeweled movement with manual winding. Most of the works are visible, and the mainspring barrel is cut away so that the state of winding of the spring can be seen. The iridescent blue filigree hands contrast with the stainless steel case and works and brass ...
    Cons:
    Not of the highest quality, would require a bit of care on the part of the owner to maintain it in working condition for a long...

    posted by Perumal on 12/25/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Roll of high temperature kapton tape, with an adhesive which is stable at high temperature. Used to protect solder pads while undergoing the first pass of soldering, holds up well to the soldering cycle. Useful while prototyping, when multiple passes have...
    Cons:
    Needs an understanding of the technical issues involved in order to use it effectively.

    Diamond coated disk will cut through anything

    posted by Perumal on 12/25/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very thin, small diamond coated disk for cutting through anything. Since diamond is the hardest material known it can cut through anything, other than of course another diamond. Useful for shaping carbide tools to prolong their life.
    Cons:
    The diamond coating is fragile, and requires skill to ensure it does not flake off prematurely. This is common to all diamond t...

    posted by Perumal on 12/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright, useable brightness is achieved with 2 AA alkaline cells supplying 2.4V. All brass construction. Cylindrical shape allows for infinitesimally fine adjustment of the line angle. Wires are sealed with flexible silicon sealant for protection from m...
    Cons:
    Line seems broad, can be made finer with better focusing.
