Lidl cordless rattle gun.

Post by DaveEFI » Tue Oct 29, 2019 9:51 am

Some time ago when looking in the centre of Lidl on a DIY day, I saw a cordless impact driver. Used the same 18v battery as the drill, jigsaw and circular saw I'd already got, so bought one. It's only the size of a cordless drill. (I don't have a garage, so air tools out of the question)
Gave it a try on the crank pulley bolt on my RV8 which can be a pain especially as my car is an auto, and after a couple on minutes of screaming away, it came off. :) It is only a crude device with no torque settings, but in this case worth every penny of the low cost.
Instructions say the peak torque is 180 nm.

Never ceases to amaze me how such things have been invented in my lifetime. I can remember the grief I had undoing a crank pulley fixing first time I did it - many years ago - on another engine, likely a BMC B series.

Think such Lidl stuff is special offer, so when it's gone it's gone. But may come up again at a later date. Why it tends to be at such a good price. And if something is popular, can sell out pretty quickly. It's an interesting business model. Which you either love or hate. All you can do easily is to look at their special offers on line regularly so you don't miss anything.

One of the good things is, they come with a 3 year no quibble guarantee
