The best chisels you can buy at a grocery store

The best chisels you can buy at a grocery store

07-14-2015 03:02 PM by lumberjoe | 20 comments »

If you follow Paul Sellers blogs or videos at all, you’ve heard him mention that discount grocery store chain Aldi carries chisels from time to time – and in his opinion they are quite good. Unfortunately these have not been made available in North America. That is until a few months ago. Based on the fact Paul raves about these chisels many times over, there is an Aldi store less than 3 miles from my home, and the 4 piece set costs me $7.49 with tax, I decided to grab them. I ...

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

I obtained this product from ALDI, and I appreciate that they may not have outlets all over the world, but for UK (and German ?) LJs, looking for a cheap and cheerful dust collector to go before a domestic vacuum cleaner, at £14.99 this could be a useful accessory. The ports are simply positioned vertically in the top, so there is probably little cyclone effect, and the system depends on the included Herpa filter to prevent ‘nasties’ getting to the driving vacuum cleaner.
