Is it just me or does anyone else go into LIDL see something totally random and get an itchy wallet??

I already have two hot snot guns and use them maybe once a year but as soon as I saw it I started to think of things I could do with it although I did ultimately resist - this time :roll:

I saw those were in there. About the same as you I have a couple of guns and use them occasionally. The gas gun did seem useful but I'll resist I think. . .
It's tempting to get some new toys though.
I think I said on here, a recent-ish thing I had from there was a digital caliper. I picked one up and looked at it, and decided I could do without. Mrs. Dave54 came back a day or two later and had bought me one! :huray:

They have a special digital caliper for when chippies need super accuracy now, have you seen one??



It's marked in 1/2" graduations :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

They do, Dave, it's square, plumb and level that they find so challenging.....

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
