  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

No idea if they are any good but looks like Lidl have their rechargeable soldering iron at £6.99 (Might be battery only?) and a 48 watt soldering station at £17.99 in store on Sunday 14th Oct.

They also have a 'helping hands' device with magnifying glass and soldering iron holder for £5.99 and a rechargeable 'dremel' type tool with bits for £16.99 Well I think it's rechargeable but may be 12v.

Not saying they are the best quality but they generally come with 3 year warranty, and the tool I have bought from them seem very good for the money.

I bought a rechargeable "Dremel" thing from Lidl a few years ago, it was the worst thing ever.....Only good for the lightest of light tasks.  The set of tools I got with it were the best thing about it and even they were pretty rubbish.

Can't speak for the one flagged and soldering stations are a different matter, but I have had a few Dremel clones over the (many!) years inc a Black & Decker.

All were rubbish.

Finally seeing sense, I bought a Dremel, and its been a workhorse, being used several days a week since. Used it once with cutting disc to slice a locked rusted 1 1/2" nut in a place bigger tools could not reach and heat could not be used. Drastic overload, but it worked perfectly and has continued to do so years on.

The only thing I dislike about mine is that the speed switch moves the "wrong way", it moves right to stop, and my brain wants left to stop like most tools/radios/etc.

I really dislike the cliche "you get what you pay for" but if it applies anywhere, it applies to a mini-drill and Dremel.

I have bought proper Dremel bits, and more recently the diamond and cut edge tools from Banggood, all of which have proven quite good.

Be aware of the risks of "explosion" of cheap tools like grinding wheels with high rotation speed and ALWAYS wear proper eye shields, not just prescription glasses.
