I have a B&Q "Mac Allister" multitool which gets so hot it's only usable for about 5 mins at a time. Although that is usually enough, I hope this one is better!
Any good for thin gauge metal, copper pipe etc? No mention on LIDL site

Absolutely
I have a battery version of this, also from Lidl, and it cuts through copper pipe easily :-)

You can also get diamond dust blades for trimming tiles etc.
Is this useful for cutting out wooden IKEA panels (cables, etc.)?

Yeah it's great for cutting into/through wood, plasterboard etc. But the holes you make won't be pretty!

Thanks, might check out the Bosch one instead (Bosch PMF 220), might be worth the extra.
This is a household must for even the lightest DIYer

Great for cutting around the bottoms of the door trimmings so you can slide in your new floorboards

I had two bosch ones and they both died on me. Get this one if I was you for £19.99 cant go wrong.
Thank god for Lidl and there tools saved so much money buying their own brand and never had any problems. Going to buy the rotary tool for my jewellery making it £16.99 but on Amazon a Dremal is £40 for the cheapest option thanks for posting because it took me to the tool section and I’ve been waiting for the rotary tool to come in again for a while heat from me xxxx

I bought Bosch also, variable speed control went very quickly then died altogether. I would now avoid Bosch.
Had a second hand Worx one , good for a while but suddenly kept conking out. Then would suddenly work for then die again.
Doubt it was overheat as would not work a day later , then decide to work. Then stop suddenly . Very annoying,
So bought a cheap Argos Guild version - works but the quick change is very fiddly and takes several goes to tighten.
To be frank I might prefer to go for a simple Allen key next time, though this is very cheap for a quick change version.
I would warn you though that from my experience LIDL Parkside cutting blades are crap - so expect very soon to have to replace with a better brand.

It sounds like the lead has broken, and is making and breaking, they normally fail where the lead goes into the tool.

I took it apart to see if there was anything obvious - couldn't see anything. Since it was second hand, I now
suspect it had quite a lot of use already.

Any blades in particular?
Mine conked out a couple of weeks ago. I bought this as I prefer cordless. Was a pretty good deal. I also get my blades from ebay where they are really cheap.

Does look like a good deal for cordless yes! Presumably it has a decent power?

I also have an intermittent one that belongs to a friend. Whenever I try to diagnose it it works though!

Parkside tools say Germany on the side but does this mean they are made in Germany? or China?

No doubt China, but don't let that put you off - they have a track record of being reasonable quality and the fact that you can take them back to a bricks and mortar store if they go wrong means that the three year warranty is actually worth something.

Looking at having to tile my wetroom floor myself, when you say tiles would you kindly expand on that? Wondering if this would be any help with that in mind?

It's probably best to research on the internet for that. You would not be able to make neat cuts with this - for that you would need a proper tile cutter.

Thought so wondered if there was something specific it might have helped with.
Cheers for the reply
Battery-powered tools have to worry more about efficiency, and it also might be considerably lower power.
I just bought one of these, and it's really impressive.
I also own the Bosch one, and I think this one is better. It's also less than half the price.

Not sure they have the same things - this was 18 months ago. But the seller was bladesave and they were bi-metal cutters which you need for longevity.
I bought one last year, don't know how I managed without one. The only problem I have is with the sanding pads, the velcro wears out before the sanding surface. So I'd try to get better ones next time.
