Its in the Lidl weekly magazine ththat they produce every week. It is on page 15 at the bottom right hand corner. It is on sale on Thursday the 8th of February. Better get there early, they never have many of these special deals in!!!

Hope this helps.

Anthony.

I bought one of the scroll saws from Aldi a few weeks ago but just week ago there was a pile of them priced about £10 cheaper than those earlier. Perhaps there are fewer of us lusting after new workshop toys than we think

I'll walk into Ripley on Thursday morning and hope there's still one left. If there is, I'll catch the bus back home otherwise, if it's nice, I'll walk back empty handed.

Hi Mal, it makes a change for some other country to be ripping people off. A friend of mine went out to the States some years ago. He is in to shooting sports etc,etc. He took with him a British catalogue produced by the importers of this shooting gear and compared it to the American edition of the same catalogue. Guess what??? The British catalogue was exactly the same, with the same item numbers, but they had changed the Dollar sign for the Sterling sign. Needless to say, he bought his goods from the Yanksm, and used them out there so no import tax to pay on used items.

We are still "Rip off Britain".

Just as a follow up, someone has already put one of these 29.99 sanders up on ebay. Have a look at item number

183055279392. They are asking £53.90 for the same item as the one being sold in Lidl's. What a rip off!!

That does not follow. Any US item imported into the UK is subject to VAT. In the US, tax is only added at the checkout and is never shown on catalogues or in stores. Frankly having travelled to the US a number of times in recent years, prices over there are not much different to the UK. They seem cheaper until one gets to the checkout and finds a sizeable lump has been added in tax.

$ price + Import duty +20 VAT + the importer's/distributer profit + retail margin = UK £ price. $s for £s doesn't sound too far off the mark.

You won't get the three year warranty either.

Also don't forget the US catalogue probably showed price before US tax too, though knowing a little about the US there is probably no tax on shooting equipment!

It varies: on the whole prices in Lidl France are not dissimilar from those here, like many of the goods. Lidl's good value (by Brit standards) Baturrico wine from Catalonia is £4.95 here - in the French branch of Lidl I visit most often, it's under 3 Euros, excellent value. It's certainly "rip off" Britain in terms of booze! I buy a litre of J&B whisky there for two-thirds the UK price, and I only ever visited one country where booze was more expensive than here - Finland.

Pretty sure VAT would still have been due had the UK customs been aware that the item had been bought in the US....used or not....your friend is guilty of smuggling!surprise

In answer to your question Bert, It can be mounted vertically, but mine has always been used flat on the bench. Depends on what you want to do with it, I suppose.

The only go out the day advertised. Best to get there early. They often don't have many in.

Do you know what diameter Sanding disk is used?

Martyn, the sander was available in Ireland from yesterday. The diameter of the disc is 125mm. There are 6 discs included - 2 X 80; 2 X 150 & 2 X 240 grit. They did not have any spare discs available but according to the instructions, they are available to order (no price).

Eamonn.

Thanks.. That is a decent size..
