    My son works for Aldi sadly there is no staff discount so as much as I'd like one a bit too dear for me.

    I could be tempted, the three year warranty always makes it attractive.

    Never seen them selling those before so must be a new line.

    Looks like the ebay advert is a drop shipper just passing orders on to Aldi and earning £100 a time.

    It's ok..you can have the one I nearly bought.

    I nearly fell for a hmmm...shiny...that's nice and I need one. :whistle:

    In reality I can't think of one job I have not managed easily with what I already have, the £'s will stay with the moths in my wallet. :thumbup:

    I was thinking do I sell on my Makita chop saw and get something a bit less sparky, but your thinking is probably correct, amount I use it probably just keep what I have.

    They don't actually buy any Dave.

    How it works is you 'buy' it off them for £299.
    They order one from Aldi for £160 and get it delivered to you
    So they have handled no stock and made a nice few quid.

    All perfectly legal but there is a catch with Aldi stuff and such a long warranty....

    They will tell you for warranty claims it has to be sent back to Aldi so they still are not handling anything.

    It would get interesting two years down the line when it burns out, there is no replacement stock and Aldi rightly only refund £160, would be fun trying to get the ebay seller to refund the rest.

    Their listings are also against ebay rules, for a change of mind return they are claiming a restocking and postage charge will be deducted from the refund.

    Basically they are just chancers sitting on a pc hoping people won't research prices or know the laws.

    I bet that the restocking and postage will be 140

    I try and sell things locally first, easier for me and I whine about there never being decent stuff for sale up here.

    @Burdekin With all that wonderful new space, wait & buy a bigger, older machine even if it needs a refurb. Then you can move on the chopsaw at your leisure.

    Unless you foresee a need to humph the saw with you to another location?

    I'd love a big old cast iron wheeling machine but they are crazy expensive so will make do with the one I made. I'm with Paul with this style of drill, they aren't particularly a good design to use compared to a decent pillar or radial drill, they however look great so a nice bit of industrial art. One other machine I am considering if a decent cheap one comes up is a guillotine as they can be had for a decent price.
