    All-in-one waterproof over suits. I have not had one that didn't leak over the leg where that daft diagonal zip goes down to your knee.**

    Leggings with trouser leg gussets that always get trapped in the zip slider and leave you hopping about in the rain trying to untangle the pissing things.

    Why the F do they all do that?

    Trouble is two piece suits generally leave me with a wet belly where water has blown up wards behind the petrol tank.

    Try the BMW all in one rain suit mine has never leaked, the only downside is it's bright yellow and the wearer looks like banana man.

    Any 'own brand' cordless tools especially anything with a Sealey badge on it.................fairly expensive impact gun went through 6 batteries and 3 chargers in 3 years (binned the lot in the end) the Sealey 4 1/2" mains angle grinder snapped its output shaft the first time it was used .

    Any power tools from Machine Mart with a Clarke name badge on it , self destructing angle grinders, radom orbital sander and electric power file.

    As for cordless drills have tried the lot from Bosch through DeWalt before eventually discovering that Makita ones actually work well and continue to function for years and years (touch wood)

    For tools I like McAllister from B&Q. Strike the right balance of price and durability. What’s the point of having a 500 dollar drill for occasional diy work. Now tools from Argos pure shite. JJH

    Rukka

    I think my views are well known. You pay high price wanting the best, when the product falls apart, the dealer/ distributor is not interested, does not honour the warranty.

    Not a good product and the warranty is not worth a bean. Avoid an expensive mistake.

    As you say. But a pair of Ł550 trousers with a broken zip within a month followed by the groin area stitching falling part and a response it’s my fault through abrasion is bollox. When I contacted. The importer with the photos and report from the textile expert he said he hadn’t actually seen the trousers, just that the dealer had described them.

    Not worth a bean. If you got a quality set, well done. If you do t care about your Ł1500 take a chance.

    CHIPEX Car restoration/touch up paint!

    they say that the paint is colour matched specifically to your make and model (Enter Your Reg Here) Bollox.

    I should have known better. I even watched various You Tuber demo's.

    Colour match was crap and when you take off the excess in the prescribed manner it either doesn't take enough or takes too much. I don't think I did anything wrong but even if I did it's still ended up as a complete and utter....

    TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!

    Have you ever tried to take out weeds with a blow torch!!? Doesn't work. Sure it'll take the top off and they grow back from the roots.

    Worse still is that the butane canister is specific to them, and as they are a periodic item (for opportunist buyers like idiot me) you cannot get replacements or refills!

    Aldi or Lidl special buys. Just be very very careful. Cheap is not always best.

    I thought Samsung make the panel for Sony. Also, check your warranty as Samsung is usually 5 years and can be 6 depending on where you buy it.
