It’s a week and a half ago, and they generally sell out in ten minutes. I got mine just after nine and was lucky.
Saw a really good offer on big TV starting on a Thursday. Arrived at 10 mins to opening time and there were about 50 people queuing round the corner from the entrance. Went in to watch and there were about half dozen sets to sell.

They are all on fleaby, get rich quick merchants punting them out again at around £170 now

Is Parkside not just a badge name, have seen other names when you look closely, eg. in the manual you’ll find the real manufacturers name, don’t know about plasma cutter but they often use companies like scheppach.
Yes, contract manufactured, like most own brands. Clearly they won't have their own factory.... Possibly sourced thus:

10 of them in coleraine lidl today though i saw 4 being purchased. £100
I thought about buying one when I saw them in the wee advert but didnt bother. Maybe I should go and get one then just in case i need it.

I've bought a few tools from lidl as cheap options and if I use them alot I can upgrade them when they fail. Either they're really good or I haven't been using them enough as I haven't had to upgrade to a better brand yet :D

I bought one, not really sure when I'll use it though! Mate bought one when they were last out and he rates it. Uses it fairly often too. Any lidl stuff I've got has been a lot better than any other cheap brands. Their submersible pumps have lasted longer than some better brands too here

The old man got one. He has been sent back to the shop with it, hateful piece of ****. We already have a Hypertherm (excellent bit of kit), but the Lidl one would not hold the current to cut anything with. Built to a price and not a spec I should think.

Project Lamport 2020

  • 226
  • 0

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.
