  1. Phoenix

    Aldi / Lidl Centre section

    Now I know you can get some half decent stuff there, but... The other week on the way home from work I impulse bought a benchtop band saw.... don't particulaly need one, but theres a couple of jobs it'll come in handy for, and well....Its a new toy. Well came to set it up on easter monday (well what else can you do on an easter monday?) and found the base was a bit twisted, bit peeved off, but continued non the less, the band would not track anywhere near right, turning by hand it would come off within half a turn, however much you adjusted the tracking, whole thing must be twisted out of line, took it back, got money back cos they didn't have any more. Why oh why, when shopping in the other store in town, and seeing they still had them, did I try and buy another? Sure it wasn't twisted and you could get it running with the band on (wasn't perfect though - it would align itself to the centre of one tyre and be towards the front or back edge of the other rather than centred oin both - so suspect the chasis wasn't perfectly aligned ). However with the slightest provocation it would decide to shed its band, it too went back to the shop, I have no desire to spend more time putting the band back on than actually using the damn thing. I suppose (and I can hear SW laughing here) what did I expect for £90....
