Lidl Parkside Sander Grinder PSBS 240 C2 Quick Review

It's an OK tool but is a little under powered. You can get new belts from Amazon, they are 686 x 50 mm (27" x 2"). They are available in a variety of grits from Amazon from 40 to 400 grit.

Lidl Parkside Battery Vehicle Impact Wrench PSSK 20-Li A1 A Quick Review.

This unit features a Parkside 20V Team battery, a 4 amp hour battery. Most Parkside 20V team devices have 2 amp hour batteries. The 4 AH battery costs £22 on its own.

Lidl Parkside Mains powered Impact Wrench PDSSE 450B2 review, this is similar though not the same as the impact driver/wrench being released on Thursday the 26th of September 2019 it is similar enough and I also run through the differences.

Here is the full wheel bearing video where the "in use" footage came from.

Lidl Parkside Arc Welder review PESG 120 B3. These cost around £40 from Lidl when they are in.

It's tricky to weld thin stuff with arc welders but with care and practice it can be done.

I use most of my two stroke equipment about twice a month so I do this every time. If you use yours more regularly you probably only want to do this once a fortnight.

How to change the blade on a Lidl Parkside track/plunge saw, particularly if you are having issues.

How to light an Optimus 8r petrol/gasoline stove (also sold under the Primus brand) according to the instructions.

An interesting stove that takes a bit less than 100ml of petrol in its tank.

Fitting and adjusting the chain on a Mac Allister MC750S-2 750 watt electric pole saw. Seems to be causing issues.

Lighting a Primus stove. Pressurised paraffin/kerosene stove.

How to light them and what to look for.

Changing the pump cup washer on a Primus stove to get it working again.

Here is my review of the Lidl 20V team cordless drill. I used the previous incarnation of the same cordless drill to drive every single screw (but not the 16 bolts) in my shed.

Here is my review of the Lidl Parkside Plunge/track saw PTSS 1200 C1 which is on sale in Lidl from Thursday June the 6th 2019.

As soon as I have god information on where to get extra Lidl/Parkside track I will post details in a pinned comment.

For an alternative review and more information on alternative tracks (Evolution tracks fit) see Peter Millard's review here:

Lidl Japanese Pull Saw A Quick Review, it is a reasonable saw for £5.99 though I wouldn't use it on some awkward woods.

I tried to make this 1.5 litre Coca Cola bottle go pop but alas I couldn't get in any more air.... Also I suspect that the safety features of the design let air out at around 80 PSI. Still, I will have another go.

Mac Allister 750 Watt 20CM Pole saw MPS750S-2 review & it in action, including how to assemble and cutting down high branches.

I broke the handle of my favourite saw!

Here, I repair the handle

Here I widen the gap between the uprights to take the windows.

Putting the uprights in the wrong place makes an enormous amount of extra work, it'd have been much better to put the uprights at exactly the right spacing for the windows.

Titan 25mm Nailer Stapler TTB517STP from Screwfix A Quick review

Also I cover using it correctly.

Here is a review of a small (15mm nails or 6mm staples) nailer/stapler I found in Lidl one day for £9.99.

For a small cheap nailer I like it.
