This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Aldi have a selection of Workzone hand tools available from today. I'd been looking out for a wire stripper and this looks extremely similar to the Stanley Fatmax one that sells for £20 at Screwfix. This Workzone one is made by Walter in Austria, I bought one today and the quality is really nice, they also sell this same model badged as Dainu on Amazon at £9.99 where it is their Number 1 ranked tool in Wire Strippers.

Aldi also have a Hammer Tacker and a pair of Tin Snips available at the same price, and they both look to be nice quality.

Superb value, quality made tools, £10 elsewhere for ones that are garbage, these are a bargain for the money!

I haven't got this, but I've got something very similar. The wire stripping bit is very awkward to use and really doesn't work very well. The wire cutters will cut thinner sections of copper quite well. The crimpers work quite well but you need to very carefully position each crimp. Alright for very occassional use. IMO

You must have a dodgy one. This type is one of the best for stripping wires.
Got Lidl one and works great. This should be similar quality too.

Looks like the same people who make the re-badged stanley ones, almost 100% identicle but half the price
How is this reduced from £6.75?

I don't know, I definitely didn't put that it in but when I submitted the thread it said it was "being edited by a moderator". I've just gone and edited it myself to remove that other price.

Yes there appears to be some very strange mod activity on here today.

As previously said you must have a dodgy/faulty one.
The only problem I have is with extremely thin gauge wire, it sometimes cuts a few strands of the inner copper as well as the outer wall but this only happens occasionally.

I've just used the Workzone ones that I bought this morning to cut and strip some some speaker wire and I was amazed at how simply and quickly they did the job. I've not used a pair of these auto wire strippers before (I'd been using a pair of side cutters and a stanley knife before) but they made it so much easier, you just put the cable in the jaws, give it a little squeeze and then the outer sheath just slides off.

Just to give anyone an idea of how simple it is this video here shows how to do this with a pair of Stanley Fatmax strippers and these Aldi ones are identical to them.

Does anyone know how often Aldi or Lidl has their wood chisels for sale? I keep wanting to get a set and never see them for sale. There are people selling them for double the price on ebay, but i'd rather not support them.

Also not a dig as the price is still good, but they're made in China like most of Aldis tools. Walter online is probably just an importer. You can get the same wire strippers on aliexpress, but they are more expensive, so this is still a good price for them. I'm sure they will work perfectly well.

Anyone else having difficulty with delivery to Northern Ireland?

Edit: Just rang customer services they don't deliver outside of mainland UK. Great.

If it's any help to anyone they should also have these in their stores in Ireland for €6.99
