Just had excellent service from Aldi. The rotary multi tool I bought packed up. I contacted a lovely sounding lass who has arranged for a replacement and told me to keep the faulty one. Now have a project. I think vibration was the cause from a bent mandrel. Might be a soldered joint needs fixing or the speed control gone u/s. Wish me luck John O/T👍👍👍
I thought a minidrill had gone west on me, but then found the motor was OK, so , with items from a discarded fax machine I made a small mill/drill attachment for the vertical slide of my modelmakers' lathe. It had made an awful lot of wheels since! I use it to mill out spokes and drill holes on things like BRM and Dunlop wheels and it did all the series of British Touring Cars models I made for the teams back in the Cavalier/Mondeo days, when you could tell what they were and there were no stinking grunty oil burners.
I fixed the broken one easily. A wire broke where it entered the little pcb.Lifted the board to unsolder the stub of wire left in place and poked it out with a cocktail stick. The wire still had enough exposed wire to pop through the hole and a quick dab with the soldering iron and it wa fixed. Getting the case closed properly was a pig but fixed now. Replacement arrived today too. Woo Hoo.👍🤓 P.S. what does this represent😤?
