The only tin openers we have been able to find, have thick plastic handles.
The all metal one we used to have lasted over 40 years before it wore out, these new ones wear out very quickly, one lasted about a month, the handle became loose inside the plastic cover.
Another type has just gone wrong after about a year it won't open cans, it has worn out.
These new ones are also much fatter and harder to store in a drawer.

When somebody tells you what somebody else said about you, don't you realize that every person understands the original message differently, yet you still want them to tell you more.
And when you tell someone what someone else said about them, you too are playing Chinese Whispers.

Your friend won it at a fantastic price on ebay.
Your friend makes two copies, and offers you equal ownership of the original if you pay half the cost of the CD, plus the cost of one copy. You have a copy each, your friend lets you keep the original for the time being. Whoever keeps the original mustn't lend it, or put in at risk in other ways, and neither person could sell their ownership to a third party without the approval of you both.
If another one becomes available, the original goes to whoever is prepared to pay the most for this other original.
If a 2nd original same CD is won, you share the cost, and have one original, and one copy each.

A devise usually called the battery wizard, but have also seen it advertised as a Battery charger claims to recharge ordinary and alkaline batteries as well as rechargable batteries. In fact it doesn't recharge ordinary batteries, it just 'refreshes them, which means you need to take them out of the torch, caller display, radio, toys or whatever they are used for often to extend their life.
I bought One from Look Again, I had lots of used alkaline batteries to try out on it, waiting to be brought to the recycling centre, it would only attempt to recharge 2 of about 50 batteries, it even refused to recharge a rechargable battery.
It only charges up to 1.2 volts, which is too low for many things, recharagables maintain the voltage for most of the charge, alkalines do not.
The instructions which come with it do not make the claims in the adverts.
