Why do agressive!
Police are now watching you :D
Managed to bag one, not sure why as I live in a flat, having said that it is a bargain

Anyone buying one of these then I suggest you check the soleplate on how it's screwed to the body. On mine two of the machine screws had been cross threaded leaving the heads of the screws stuck up. If I hadn't noticed I could have easily damaged the surface of whatever I was cutting.
I think I'm going to pick one up, I need to do a kitchen worktop shortly, then also redo a f Thanks, I'd been wondering about that myself. I think I can justify this as I need to reroof my flat roof, so will be cutting up some waterproof ply or OSB shortly, and this could be handy for that job too.
The biggest benefit of this type of tool is making straight cuts with minimal set up. Aligning the edge of the track with where you want to cut and it will move in as straight a line as the track. The plunging action allows you to make stop cuts in the middle of material. Track saws are very useful if you want to cut up sheet goods like 8'x4' boards of plywood and can be as accurate as you can set them. With a suitable worktable set up, they are as versatile as a table saw in much less space.
Yes, but be aware that you'll still need to finish the corners with a jigsaw because of the circular nature of the blade. I've long heard how good this model is for the money and that the tracks will fit the Festool tracks, but can be bought for a fraction of the price (about £18 per 1220mm length I think) from the Parkside distributor. I will be keeping an eye out for one.
Get a Dewalt xtreme blade for it - it's slimmer and cuts a bit cleaner than the stock one. Used this saw with one of those to cut 40mm oak worktops and it was great, though as a perfectionist I did hone the edges with a router you could probably just hand sand to take off any tooth scours the cut was so good
Which size batons can you use when placing them between the joints on the saw horses
Supposedly the clips on the Stanley where they connect, can be quite poor. I'd ideally like metal clips that connect them together once closed. Not sure if the dewalt ones do that tho.
The toughbuilt are a good bit of kit but I went for the DeWalt as they are a bit higher so I don't have to bend down so much, if they were the same height I would of deffo gone for them
I use two of these (C650s), fantastic quality bits of kit.
They look decent but I'd be inclined to get a pair of Toughbuilt C550's for the same money (or C300's for less).
Not too sure why this isn't hotter, I don't need this as I have a dewalt, but this is a fab price and titan stuff is good quality..
It will cut through it like a hot knife through butter. But it won’t be neat. fine for chopping up to skip an old one. But the wrong tool to use for installing a new one to do that you would need jigsaw, router andor circular saw depending on the cuts needed
You're welcome. 8)
These are good for any work that doesn't require precision. It's perfect for breaking up pallets, sawing branches and other demolition related work
Are these ok for cutting laminated bench tops?
I didn't even see that previously for some reason I just assumed based on missing wheels. Both of us forgot to mention the rim tape. Strange that the bike literary is just missing the wheels with the brake system split with just the rotors missing because they are fitted to the wheels. Makes you wonder about the story about how the wheels went missing. Good price anyway.
It does give a list of things needed: Complete 650b front and rear wheel with tyres and inner tubes Disc brake rotors (160mm recommended) Compatible 9 speed Cassette
Good deal but a wheelset, tyres, tubes, rotors and a cassette is a reasonable sum of money to make a complete bike and that assumes there is nothing else missing from the bike as the advert is a bit unclear.
cashback with quidco too
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/322993733424 I would say this is a better deal, just need to buy your own wheels. Parts on their own without the frame and forks are worth £150.
Don't be fooled, people ... it's a Transformer!! It's Sawbatron!!
If you’re doing tall skirting or crown moulding you cant stand the wood up right to get the second angle. Cutting both angles with the wood laying down is the only way. Double bezel or compound mitre saw is the only safe way to it do.
Ditto. Utter rubbish. Purchased mine about 2 years ago. Same issue.
Cheers OP ordered, wanted a double bevel as it allows me to batch. I know it will probably need setting for each run but thats the satisfying bit.
This is exactly the same as the Titan by screwfix. With the addition of some weird black feet
Oos at Howe, but £93 at Powertoolmate.
Soz I never got back to you matey, the charger model I have is the DCB115 hope it helps :D

Code still works
Haha.. Not a problem sir (nerd)
True. I voted hot. It looks ideal if you want a very profile saw, but it is limited and given the Amazon reviews and that it is a eBay purchase....I've done it again haven't I?! I'm sure the build quality is better than the Screwfix clone. Sorry! (highfive)
(lol) back handed compliment if ever I saw one.
Amazon feedback on the Ferm model speaks volumes. This is one step up from making it yourself from a circular saw and an old kitchen worktop, but for under £50 a great deal.
Yeah, a bonsai tree
Will this be able to cut through a tree?
I think my battery powered jig-saw looks better than that. It's a no from me
Brillant bargain. Love this better than my 210mm circ saw, it struggles with 18mm MDF though. Got mine for £40s which is a steal, these are £90+ retail, even Lidl version is £60 at the mo.
Which aldi in Colchester please...there's 3 aldi in Colchester I think
I picked up an Irwin Hacksaw in Stowmarket yesterday - still had a few left! Well worth £2 for the quality, decent blade too!
Why doesn’t it let you add for click and collect even though showing in stock??
Many Thanks (highfive)
Went to buy 1 of the Irwin hacksaws this morning as it showed online,10 in stock at the store. By the time I reset my password all 10 had gone :( Probably went to either a eBay seller or a building Co.
None in Ipswich area, so pass for me. Heat added for sharing your find.
SOLD OUT ONLINE IN STORE FROM THU 26 AP
back in stock again
It appears to be out of stock.
I personally don't care if it's any good. I want one because it will go well with my 12 unopened boxes of precision screwdriver sets.
Those who actually have it, is it really good?
I love how it is mostly men here, on deals for women's clothing. Imagine if it was like that irl.
Why do all the hookers look like models ;)
Are you slut-shaming on HUKD?
Why do all the models look like hookers
Isn't that true of all these laser guide things - that's my experience anyway? I haven't even turned on the one on my WORX saw.
As stated, the blades can be expensive. Hopefully Lidl will also sell the blades and they'll be compatible with the Worx machines though.
Got mine from lidl don't trust the laser it's pi55ed
It is now! Blades cost a bit too, although just spotted some for £2 on ebay that look almost identical apart from the rotation direction. I may get one to test, just put it on backwards.....
Looks good, but expensive!
Being the DIY noob that i am i didnt realise that this didnt come with a battery, i dont have any compatible batteries with this tool. Where is the best place to buy a battery + charger? Thanks
Cheers thanks for clarification
No, the 'N' at the end of the model number means naked i.e no battery. Just for reference in future.
Would you mind sharing the links to the above mentioned video's?
Mine turned up yesterday. I didn't pre order it either.
Has anyone received the stand that they ordered online yet? I pre-ordered way in advance but my delivery is still at 'awaiting parcel' stage with Hermes (urgh)
all setup now, thought i would add some pro, cons, and observations. I got both the saw and the stand. i'm not a pro but am doing a lot of renovation/woodworking to my house, and am the target market for most aldi/lidl tools 8) ~ mine required a lot of small adjustments to get square in all angles. I recommend finding just about every tweakable screw and nut that appears related to dimension, and squaring it. (in the right order) see videos as per @friar_chris comment. ~ does have an adjustable (be it tiny knob - fiddley) for trench cutting. and another dead stop, i had to adjust to make the blade cut past the fence. ~ after adjustment and a bit of lube, almost all parts are very solidly built. however i find there is still almost unacceptable sideways slop on the pulldown, this may affect cuts, but i have squared it so i'm putting a little force to the left. i hope that makes sense, i cant think of the actual parts. we are talking around 1mm movement, perpendicular to the blade. ~ its not a negative but a little annoying at same missed opportunities for budget tools - the stops/rests on the saw only extend by 65mm ea, and the stand props 325mm each. esp with the saw there is room underneath for longer rods, but if you look on only the few of the top-top models, their bars are not aligned/symmetrical, so allows the bars to be nearly as long at the total width when closed, each. total extended for the stand is 850mm to the blade, so with the saw on one end, a 2.6m plank will rest on its COG. this is mitigated by the clamp, BUT this is still in line with models 1.5-3x the price of this. if you were serious at cutting lengths longer than 2.4m, I reckon you'd already have a stand alone stand. ~ its only got one clamp, but two positions (left and right of blade). this sounds strange but when you put it in the right position (uncommon and not best practice /safety etc) its basically useless because in all positions the motor hits it. ~ the bolts that connect the saw to the stand mounts, stick vertically upwards, inside a recessed hole. not only is this unsightly, you cannot do them up without an S Type Ring Spanner (i presume, i do not have any) and they block the sweep so you cannot cut 45deg mitres! I will cut them down then they will be acceptable height, and can be tightened with a socket set. ~ the pull down is slightly unrefined. this is designed to quickly open the blade guard quickly on the first part of travel (desirable) but feels jerky. will get used to it. ~ they are actually relatively lightweight, inc the stand. stand is 12.5kg vs 15kg for equiv models. this classically indicates low quality, but is desirable for me as i work outside and have to store tools in a tiny outhouse, like a jigsaw. i once had a 254mm evolution model and it was a pain to move around. ~ the next thing ill do is make a zero clearance insert. dept is 20/10mm so will use 12mm mdf offcut, and trim down the sides to sit inside. on the whole very impressed with it, and is head and shoulders above what im current using (210 non-slider evo rage). for some is important, but its pretty and proffessional looking. pull of the workzone stickers and others will think its a Einhell, Milwaukee, or even a different coloured Scheppach.. XD unlike some of the parkside tools i've had in the past. (embarrassed) it doesn't look cheap im saying. however. Iplan to make a massive crosscut sled for my table saw, which, theoretically will make this redundant. keep an eye on ebay XD
I can confirm this is a red coloured Scheppach HM80MP. The stand is a red coloured Scheppach UMF1600.
Got one at this cheap price a while back - as the last post, these vibrate so bad that you will not want to use .
Tried over the weekend Pretty heavy but got the job done Cut a couple of branches of my neighbour’s tree (after his permission) that were too far in my garden but had to stop as I could not feel my hands Will be buying some vibration absorbing gloves for next time
I had the lidl one briefly and returned it as the blade lock was just too weak and if you cut anything tough they would just pop out. Is the Mac allister one any better?
Picked one up earlier. Passed Lidl on the way back and thought I'd see if they have any Parkside ones. They were £29.99 and had the following advantages over the MacAllister one. Adjustable stroke rate Lock on button 2 x blades (versus 1) LED light on working area Blow moulded case Handle cans be adjusted +/- 90 degrees Quick adjust on the footplate depth 3 year warranty (versus 2 year) I think it was 710w versus 750w for MacAllister. There's always the chance to find the Lidl ones marked down a bit. I'm go to return mine to B&Q and get one from Lidl.
No one made any jokes yet?! Ok here goes... I loved mine until it stopped reciprocating.
