I got a couple of packs also. Never came across the insertion tool before. Very handy.
The tool alone would probably cost €10 elsewhere.
On another note, they have a power washer in Aldi today. Anybody have any experience of them?
I know someone in the market for one! (always borrowing mine )

the rivet action is a great idea as it means the rawl doesnt run out when tightening it up

Very true. The only drawback I can see would be removing them, if you ever needed to, I'd say they would have to be punched straight, thereby busting the plasterboard resulting in a decent refil job. Still though, they are they are the muts nuts for studded PB walks.

Every 4-6 weeks or so Aldi and Lidl will have various power tools on sale.

I also got a lovely Parkside/Lidl cross cut sliding mitre/chop saw for 50 euro.

Cracking bit of kit for the money.

It was 99 euro and it was further reduced to 50 euro.

Plunge saw

Thanks for the quick reply paddy,good to know the saw is good,the one on monday is a different model though.I'm looking for something to take floorboards up and this http://www.lidl.ie/cps/rde/xchg/SID-...ndex_31614.htm looks like a good bet.
EDIT:
Just checked your last pic and its a very similar model saw.Def go with that then,you got it at a great price but even 50E is still less than half of a big brand one.

slightly more powerfull than the 1 I bought last year.

30w more powerfull.

Very handy for taking up floor boards...thanks to adjustable depth setting.


just watch out for any old style floorboard nails.


You will need a pry bar or gorrilla bar for those.

For €3.99 it's worth a try if you're near a Lidl shop.
There's always the 3 year guarantee.
