Paddle mixer for mixing plaster etc

A quick look at a few tiler/plaster forums and they seem good value at £40, so a nice bargain at reduced price of £24.99.

Not sure if in other Aldi as they might have sold out their quota, but 3 left after I bought one in Spennymoor, Co durham.

I've been using a drill and paddle for a while but now I've got a lot of plastering to do might as well give this a try.

They have some wood turners for £60 too...not my bag, so don't know if any good, but seems cheap.

Great machine, ideal for mixing plaster.

The geezer mixing in the picture is dressed like a dentist!

This is a classic case. I feel I need one but know I would never use it.
I don't do plastering,I don't attempt 'world record cake making' but still I know I NEED a mixer!

That's probably the way Germans dress to do DIY

Workzone... Steer well clear!! When it comes to something rotating at speed which could cause serious injury, pay a little extra!! I bought a Dremel-style rotary tool two years ago (I've told this story once or twice on HUKD before) which wasn't powerful enough to make a dent in tin, yet the clasp was working itself loose as the tool was going - the bit span off and would have taken my eye out had it not been for protective goggles!!

I picked up one of THESE when I did some plastering in my house. Just connect it to your drill and youre away! :-)

That's what I have been using (well, I've been through 2 of them as they break after a while) but it's also buggering up my drill (not much of a problem as it's solely used for mixing). Need something a bit meatier now though as need to plaster quite a bit, plus mix sand+cement render and can see the drill giving up on that one.

Just been in and their ARC Welders are down to £19.99.

I did, of course, mean Workzone.

These were £19.99 in Wellingborough Aldi last week. I think each store has discretion over what they price the clearance stuff so worth checking different stores. Grabbed some really cheap bike stuff with the red reduced stickers on in one store and went in another and, whilst still reduced, not by as much.

For note, the paddles are rather cheap and nasty, we ended up buying paddles which cost much more than the machine because the one supplied turned into a rusty lump.

My god those lebkuchens (doughnuts) look nice on sale on the 14th

or just use the mrs' food mixer like i did

The clue is in the title with that one, it's an 80mm paint mixer (i.e. small) so not really suitable for mixing plaster, but good for small amounts of tile adhesive.

Not bad for price

uummm, I bought a simple paint mixing one from B & Q for about a fiver in the summer. Stuck it in an old drill and used it to mix both dry and wet mortar for pointing. Worked spot on as I didn't use at top speed (avoided mortar going everywhere). The guy at B & Q said there wasn't a drill strong enough to turn it in mortar and said it was a waste of cash. He suggested a cement mixer at £130 instead.
