The blades were pretty good, at least as good as Bosch but much cheaper.
The velcro on the sanding pad holders wears out just like the Bosch
ones. They are a lot cheaper & have a foam holder that allows you to
get into mouldings much easier.
I shall be buying from Saxton in future.

Handy to know; thank you (I just bought the LIDL one; maybe I should
have double checked Aldi first, but have some unpleasant cold/flu/virus).
Out of curiosity, are the two units identical except for the mounting
point for the accessories, or are they different designs?

Oh that's not nice. I thought we had decided that most spare blades were
"universal" now. The last sentance implies that the Lidl blades won't fit
Bosch either or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

Bosch blades have 10mm dia hole but that doesn't fit over a spigot. The
blade location is done by 12 little pins into holes in the blade. The
fixing is via a 6 mm OD bolt into the machine.
So they might fit if they have the 12 holes... If I happen to be passing
a Lidl I might drop in to look but I don't often pass a Lidl.
I have an Aldi cordless, and that does have a boss that the blade is a
tight fit to - presumably to centre it accurately. Although you would
think the outer ring of holes would be enough. The Lidl ones have sort of
slightly elongated outer ring of holes. I did wonder if it would be
possible to enlarge the centre hole as the outer ones would fit the Aldi.
My problem is lots of Lidl close - but the nearest Aldi miles away.
