I have had one of those Aldi sanders for a couple of years, the angle markings are inaccurate but if you set it up correctly it are excellent at the jobs it can do.
A great tool for the price.

Hi,


I was in Aldi in Polmont yesterday and they have the cheap little blue mini tool kits back in stock again.  Not great quality by any stretch (the drills are very soft and you have to remember not to grab one of the reverse twist ones) but OK little kits at at £7.99 each.  I picked up a few more kits to bolster supplies for modelling purposes so that will last me another 6 months before I feel the itch again.  There is a blade holder set similar to the files that take a jigsaw blade -I already had that kit but couldn't find it for this photo...

ALDI  - £50 - 100mm Belt & Disc Sander 




https://www.aldi.co.uk/ferrex-100mm-belt-&-disc-sander/p/809918533193900?utm_source=awin&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=249371-http%3A%2F%2Fwww.digidip.net%2F&awc=19523_1665075841_0ab661fdb3ed5ca2f80f30a2e72a13e6



I would like one of these but the weight gives me cause for concern. I cannot mount it permanently and the thought of moving 17.5kg whenever I want to use it is daunting. What is the experience of others?

It is definitely heavy to move very far, but I can manage it within the workshop.  Definitely needs a strong person to move more than a couple of metres.
It should be secured to the bench when in use, it has a powerful motor.

Royal Mail system for posting items abroad has been hacked by a Russian ransomeware gang. They are having a lot of difficulty in getting it back in operation.

Lidl have some stuff at the moment that might interest the modeller, there is a small bench disc sander (like the Aldi one on the previous page minus the belt sander) for £35, there is a box of clamps but my local store has still boxes of 6 small clamps for I think £4 that seemed better for modelling


Also packs of sanding paper and masking tape, and some superglue all cheap as usual.


Canít find the sander on the website, but itís this one: [size=78%]https://youtu.be/QyrTnZU4g48[/size]

Hi Martin, they have that one as well, but this is the one I bought that does not seem to be on the UK website for some reason:
https://www.lidl.de/p/parkside-tellerschleifgeraet-ptsg-140-d2-4000-u-min-inkl-6x-schleifpapier/p100359205


I thought the angle fence might be helpful (assuming its not that accurate of course) and I liked the fact it has a attachment for vac hose to take away the dust a bit.

Evening...waiting2retire .... {-)


I too am now retired and have the Proxxon [TG125E original?] version of this bench or desk mounted disk sander...[my rating is 10/10]


The version you have looks near identical...treat it with respect...do not clog the sanding disks


You will love your machine  :kiss: 


My Proxxon was probably x 4 times the $ what you paid.......you are fortunate  <*<  as the generic version was not available in years gonebye


Enjoy the fragrance of real wood after cutting and accurate sanding from your machine  :-))

Hi Derek, yeah it looks good - although I confess mine is still in the box at the moment!


I knew I had seen something like it on the forum somewhere, I think it was in one of the mega-tug builds, but I had forgotten what the original was called. Your looks a bit more deluxe, that material guide is metal with a fancy handle to make adjustments I note!


For £35 or about $65 AUD (minus 10% with the Lidl App) I could not resist adding it to the workshop, it can go next to the Lidl pillar drill and behind the Aldi grinder  %)

Unused Jet boat esc with reversing bucket servo control £22.50  + £3.50 post.
 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/176211407302

The description currently says it's a dive manager for a sub but it's the jet esc which you can see or download html & pdf from the Web archive by the Internet link over to the left, here.

It isn't me selling it. My offer of £18.50 was automatically declined.
