Hi gang
Just noticed this handy little sanding block at Lidls from the 16th Feb.
 
With sturdy wooden handle and 2 strong metal clamps to hold sandpaper in place
 
Not bad for £3.90!

Also...............
 
 
Set contains the following grades (grit): 150 (coarse), 300 (fine) and 400 (extra fine) (not sure of size but, could be the small versions of 2" long)  at  £2.45
 
Plus other workshop tools.
 
Hope it helps
Marc

They look good, and cheaper than Aldi they had the calipers for nearer £10.00  might get one of the sanders though.

Hi Mike
Thanks.
I did forget to leave a link to the site so, here it is.......>> HERE<<
They do come out with some decent tools now and then....I must admit, a lot of those I have

I had paid £14.00 for my callipers last year and they are identical.....

All good stuff!

Hi Mark, the sharpening stones are the 6" long by 2" wide ones. Brilliant value for money, I didn't need any more, but at that silly price I bought myself a set, and a set of 5 ratchet spring clamps for £4.88.

Are they the ones that look like a  mastic gun without the bottle section ? if you get what i mean ?
 
I bought some last year, they had two  sizes, great value for money a couple did snap but it wasa quite a lot of use later !
 
I will have to nip down there and get a couple.

No ralph, these are the clamps that I bought, the tape measure is only in the picture to give you an idea of the size of the clamps.

We are lucky round here there are three stores in three local towns, mind you they could all sell out, better have a look tommorow ?

Went to the shop today..........all sold out
 
Regarding those clamps. I got some last time they were being sold and there not bad......except one of the small ones, the gripping jaws keep sliding off sideways when in use so, its an art Deco still life at the moment
