They seem to honour the warranties too. Have a stepper from Argos, currently on the 7th one (in about 3 months) I think I'm going to ask for a refund.

Why? It sounds like you're getting some good exercise going to and from the store with a heavy stepper under your arm :)

The bolt cutters amused me, I expect they'll sell out quickly to that certain section of Aldi customers :-) Aldi obviously know how to enthuse them with that picture of the chains around the gate being cut :-)

Yes, me too! I laughed. I expect that next week they will be offering a device to remove the security tags from high street shop items.

I got one which looks the same off Ebay, the fence is plastic. I've only used it once so I can't comment too much, the cast table is pretty sturdy but the fence isn't too good. Better than my old Wolf piece of crap but not hugely easy to adjust and not very accurate.

I am not a top notch professional. The hammer drill bits will do for me.

Especially when it comes to details like "sophisticated piece of machinery" and "powerful, professional quality tool"

They haven't shown everything although the photo with both router and table shows most.
- This router model has an integrated switch. Presumably the last one just plugged in at the wall and ran.
- They show the pair of reinforced gloves to protect the hands against the excessive vibration in operation. What they don't show is the full welding mask and kevlar body armour (next week's offer for 5.99) for when the thing flies apart.
Nevertheless it is "powerful, professional quality" and "in fact, you'll wonder how you've ever managed so long without one."
Special offer. Just for you. Just today.
