Lidl Airbrush Sets
« on: September 14, 2012, 02:14:15 PM »

Does anybody have any info on the performance of the airbrush/compressor sets on offer at Lidl from 24th September for 39.99?

If it's new on the market I don't think we will have any reports on it's performance.
Having said that, most of the tools they sell are value for money.
I have a multitool three years old and still going strong.
The tools come into the shops at regular intervals so the airbrush might have been on sale
in the past. Just have to see if any member has bought one.

Compressor looks OK - airbrush looks a little simple...

Cool Your Jets Guys, It's just like seeing the kids getting all excited before Christmas!  %%

The date on page 7 of the Lidl brochure says Monday 24th Sept, not Thursday.

What did you expect? We had R2-D2, then 3-CPO and then CF-FZG. Probably Martin is MA-TNZ on his home planet.

Just been to Lidl's site and I will be queuing up on MONDAY (!) morning.  Noticed an 'add to shopping list' command whilst there, so thought I would try and get one step ahead and book one. After filling in local shop etc, nothing appears to have happened except it showed I had one item on my shopping list. I don't think it actually means anything, or am I missing something obvious ? Wouldn't be the first time !  %%

Aw Naw,   R2-D2, 3CPO, CF-FZG, MA-TNZ and now F4TCT. Are there no ordinary two-headed humanoids out there?

Might be. Maybe there are, and maybe there aren't. Who wants to know...?

I got one this morning. Local store only had three, and two were sold by five past eight.  I have tried it with water and with my Aztek air brush and first impressions are good. There is a slight pulsing as it has no reservoir, but looks very good value for money. Also has 3 yesr warranty.
