    Yesterday went into Aldi for a few things and what did I come out with this week ?? A Ferrex 18volt Drill/Driver thingy. Battery and Charger included in the Box for £39.99 As it came complete I thought not a bad buy.I also managed to get the Bread and Milk I went in for.

    And they know it. Wifey sent me for milk the other night. I came back with bread, beer, biscuits, and 2 led lights....

    I forgot the milk, went back and bought the last light as well:laughing:

    1 bottle of milk= £50:doh::laughing:

    I didnt need the LED lights as I had one of their old halogen double 500w work lights on a tripod. So I got a couple of Aldis little 10w LED lights and swapped them over.. :doh:

    The problem starts when swmbos shopping list includes the words “ or something else”. As in get some lamb chops but if they don’t have them get something else = ferrex drill :laughing:

    Factory I used to work in was tightening up on people wandering out to the shop for cigarettes etc. and delegated the job top the factory cleaner, a chap called Barry who was not the sharpest tool in the box. He used to come round with a piece of paper and write a list and take money for the shop. Another chap asked for 20 No6 but if they haven't got them bring anything about the same price. Big mistake as he ended up with half a pork pie and no smokes.

    On Bob's post above, When I was an apprentice, The workshop cleaner was sent out by the forman for a pork pie, And told if no pies "get me something else" He came back with ten woodbines, because he knew the forman smoked,!!

    The batteries in my bicycle lights had died, so rather than shell out for new AAs I thought I remembered seeing bike lights in Aldi. Wandered in, got the bread (I don't do milk), headed to the middle aisle... found the bike lights. £14.99 said the tag, rechargeable LED ones. Job done, I thought. Got to the till: that'll be 8 quid plus coppers, quoth the checkout maiden. You sure? Yep, £6.99 for the bike lights, and your Warburtons. Oh well.
    So I got the lights home, charged them for a couple of hours and went out for a ride.
    Then I went back and bought the remaining sets. Found some 6mm magnets that I'd bought as speed triggers for the cruise control on my Honda. Stuck one to the mounting screw on the LED headlamp and it's perfect for hanging off the milling machine to direct light at the workpiece :D
    Also handy for site jobs: can charge it from the van's USB port while driving. Stretchy rubber strap means it'll cling to brackets, pipes etc. Four levels of brightness and even a strobe function for the epileptics :D

    Given the price of fags these days he could get half an hour with Busty Brenda behind the Portakabins near the Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough instead :D
