« on: 07 October 2017, 12:41:45 »

Just popped into Lidl to get some bits for tea, whilst wandering, picked up a new impact gun, with sockets for £13.99.  :y

Ah, ok thanks. Compressed air, and can't honestly say I'd ever need one anyway.

£13.99 ? Just in case I ever do maybe ?

Anyway    :y

Actually, I have one bought in Lidl some time ago. Never used it, never even turned it on  :o

I know. Trouble is I just can't resist a bargain, even if I don't need it. However, no impact thingy for me  :y

I believe the phrase is "All the gear and no idea  ;D"

I've got a welder and a bottle of gas under the bench in the man cave. No idea how to even plug it in.

No, you ain't! I've got a router, routing table, tile cutter, chop saw, saw bench (actually, used that), deep fat fryer and some other things from Lidl/Aldi that I know I will need when I get a round tuit..... :-[

  Round tuit,s are usually sold at Christmas Ron so put one on your santas list. Then you will be able to use all the gear, but maybe still have no idea :D ;D :y

I already have an impact gun, what I would like to see is a right angled air socket driver for those hard to reach areas.  B&Q do one but's north of 50 notes.  I am going to Vegas soon so I might pick one up there where they are much cheaper.

I have a DeWalt drill thats designed for hard to reach areas, that was a real bargain - little bro recovered it from a skip. The same skip he recovered the XRP drill and a DeWalt cordless screwdriver :D

Feeling sorry for me (this was just after the garage thing), he donated them to me :)

Cam and crank sensors will be replaced with genuine ones in due course.

Yes, but it's beating it hands down on the PITA stakes. ;D

Those Japanese have a lot to learn from German engineers when it comes to making something that will take a man to the depths of despair and then give him a swift kick in the nadgers just when he thinks he's fixed it. ;D Where's the fun in a car that works like a swiss watch for years then just goes "phut" in seconds. Amateurs. ;D
