My ALDI romance ended when (in a moment of weakness) I purchased a petrol chainsaw from them. What a piece of crap and what a terrible support department! I threw it away and saved for a Husky.

That's fair enough. I wanted a working saw and they didn't have any. I was referred to their "support" outfit - LOL. We live and learn - I didn't pay much and I didn't get much!

Yes - I did buy a (rather hefty) gas fired soldering iron of theirs. It's still working and very handy - so I suppose credit where it's due. I'm still sore about the saw. Their waders lasted one day, so I could whinge about those instead I guess....
