I cannot get at wherever mine has gone without completely dismantling the machine.

Hello Gents,
 Am so pleased and must be lucky  as I have just put my first disk on my sander and after what's been said on here was so very worried I undid the table  and pulled it off looking at it I could see a metal thread so disk on and table  put back and screwed up  I don't know if it made a difference  but I never stood it on its end, phew so pleased am not having to take it back.
                  Regards Howard.

Finally got round to unpacking the replacement sander, instead of taking the platform off to put the disc on and taking the chance of having the same thing happening again I took the angle platform off and applied the disc. simples, nemesis

Problem solved fellow Lidl shoppers -

When you undo the Allen bolt there's a bog standard galvanised nut trapped? in a plastic channel/slot
that disappears as if by magic, or in this instance - the powerful magnets in the electric motor.

Mine did it and completely vanished from view inbetween the ali sanding disc and motor casing,
required a dentists mirror to find it and right angled tweezers to retrive the nut.

Nut is now firmly hot glued into place in its channel/slot !

regards Paul

Good idea,
I managed to pick one of these up today and I have to say apart from the casing they are so simular to the Proxxon version it's uncanny everything is in the same place, switches, speed knob, fixing points even the vaccum outlet is in the same position I would be rather annoyed at buying the Proxxon at around 200 as this even comes with a 3 year guarentee too, I managed to unpeel the disc and slide it behind the platform and stick it on the disc without removing anything just a gentle turn to press it on completely around and I'm good to go

Our store has a couple of welding units (and helmets) and the odd cordless drill, unlikely to have the cross cutter at 50.00 as well (could have done with that a couple of weeks ago when I was cutting the pelmet for the kitchen  >>:-( ).

No that wasn't the problem. If you followed the instructions for fitting the sanding disk a couple of nuts fall away from their location inside the machine. You need to dismantle the unit & fix the nuts in place - hot glue was suggested.


Whether that worked & whether they have resolved the problem this year I have no idea.

My son has one of. These sanders and it works beautifully. Outstanding value for money. Not sure about those with faulty nuts, but maybe it has been put right?

Prefer tools which are made out either cast or sheet steel . Although I have been known to break those  >>:-(

I arrived at my local Lidl store (Witney) at 09.45 and was first in the queue. I managed to get their one pillar drill and one of the dozen or two bench sanders they have. Can't report on quality until I unbox them, probably tomorrow with all the upheavals in our house preparing for a new kitchen. It does mean I'll have a new 5'6" worktop with cupboards and drawers though!

Well, first in the queue as well, got the sander (there was about 5), a multi purpose tool (side ways oscillator action) and a separate pack of things for it. tempted but resisted the pillar drill even though at one point, one of them was in the trolley, then thought 'I don't do enough to warrant one' so put it back.


As Dave_S said probably wont unbox it till tomorrow (still have to get it out of the car boot yet), had to replace the front door mortice lock.


What lego bulldozer, didn't see them advertised.
