Just what i needed will it do a hog roast !

Great t deal. This will give me something else to do with my hands while I'm in my shed.

Aha, Aldi sometime sells some of the most random stuff!

Finally i can replace that table leg at an affordable price, thanks Aldi

Will this fit in my carrier bag?

I saw this, if it wasn't for the Mrs objections would snap it up and turn the sycamore I cut down earlier this summer into a supply of dinner plates.

Lot of leg less people here,lathe'n the point a bit?

I turn wood. this will put you off. buy a secondhand sip or axminster with a turning headstock for a little more from ebay, rather than this awful thing!

I'm not sure my wife wood cedar need for this. She's no sap.

But in all seriousness I will queue up early in order to get this.

Doubles up great as a sex toy. Wife can't get enough of it.

A 400w motor for turning a big chunk of wood while under the resistance of a chisel? Surely this is waaaaaay underpowered?

My Kenwood mixer struggles at times with pizza dough, and thats 1000w!

Be careful of the quality of these. I've seen VERY similar models where the metal box section bed (approx' 0.5mm thick steel) has buckled when the tailstock has been tightened and the wide toolrest has snapped when trying to rough some wood down to size. All I can say is take your time and go easy on it if you want it to last.

Would it be strong enough to wind up cotton bobbins !

400W is plenty for turning chair legs etc. The traditional foot powered bodgers would have less than half that, unless they had fabulous leg muscles. Sharp chisels are the key.

My dad use to turn spindles on one of these when he was a young man.

These days he has a Minimax T100.

This lathe does look a little flimsy though

My local Aldi has knocked a tenner off the remaining lathes they still have left in the store. Darlington btw.

I just bought the wood lathe from addi for under £50. Very good buy.

Where do I get a toolrest for this lathe, mine wobbles all over the place. the top finishes on a slant instead of level.
