Despite some iffy on line reviews by people who have bought one in the past, I picked a Parkside scroll saw today from Lidl.
The price shown was £49.00 reduced from £59.00, but when I got it to the till I found it had been reduced again to £39.00.
I'm not expecting Hegner quality, but it's actually made by Scheppach, so it shouldn't be too bad.

I bought one at the full asking price when they 1st went in the shop .
I have used it several times now and for my casual use i am happy with it .
I also noticed that they have reduced the price by £10 to £49. And wished i had waited.
So for you're £39 you have a real bargain,

I bought one for 59 quid a few months ago and I've been really happy with it. Like you say, it's made by scheppach in Germany 😃
I've got a couple of 'parkside'' tools actually and they've all been pretty good especially for the price.

they are probably all gone by now but Sunday 5 Feb LIDL have mini disc sanders on sale for £29.99
good little sander , you need to use a set square to accurately set up the table angles but it works pretty well, I have used it to square up end sections of balsa and spruce
tonight I used it to sand down formica patterns/guides to cut a foam wing excellent finish and needing only a light sanding with fine wet and dry to give it an extremely smooth edge
the sanding disc size is 125 mm , so your only going to be using half of that. speed is variable , up to about 3000rpm ad it is pretty smooth with little vibrations at the slower speed, but it comes witha clamp to fasten it down onto a bench or table if needed
my local shop had 10 to start with, today there were 2 left
