Default Mains nibbler.

Just a heads-up that Lidl have a mains nibbler on offer from next
Thursday. Might suit those with no compressed air supply, like me. I have
an ancient Hitachi one which cost and arm an a leg used - and this is the
first budget priced one I've seen.

Having a look around on the Lidl web site, I found this high fashion
item ...

Temping. Never used one but having just watched a video of it I could
find it useful.

I presume this is what is for sale

Wonder why the 'nose' of the mains version is that much bigger than the
air version?

It must be a challenge for designers to come up with something different.
However go faster stripes type designs worry me as the company may have
spent more on the appearance than the function.
I had a very well packaged set of jewellers screwdrivers which looked
fantastic, but were so soft they could not be used to undo screws. Ahem...

I still have one of them somewhere. Hard work, though. Just about copes
with classic radio/amplifier chassis ally.

The problem I have had with powered nibblers is that the cutter is hard
and brittle, I have snapped a few. So you need to be sure you can get
replacements.

I like that.

Our current cats are called Jaffa, Josie and Jenna (there is a bit of a
theme going on here). Jaffa is a ginger tom, sometimes called Jaffa
Cake; Josie often sits for hours very upright and totally unmoving, so
she is also known as Pot Cat; while Jenna is a *large* cat (both
naturally large and a total glutton - 8.5kg) and is known as Fat Cat.

That is my experience too. This one looks more rugged with being able to
cut 3.2mm steel, well beyond it's spec, and keeps going.

Just under 40 quid. My Hitachi cost me 150 used many years ago. They're
rather limited production compared to most power tools. They're most used
for cutting car bodywork, and most who do that would have a compressed air
one.

Never broken one on the Hitachi. Perhaps they come in different sizes?
There is quite a bit of waste with it.
