"Tu quoque, ..:"
So did I yesterday evening  :D :D :D
Have not yet tried it, but from the looks it seems that all the bits and pieces from my Dremel should fit.

I had a quick play found it had charge so offered to have a look at the wife’s teeth
Now I’m shut in the garage with I quote “ your stupid trains” and it awfully cold :(

As I was Lidl shopping last night I had a look at the grinder,decided not to buy as my Dremel still has life. However I did purchase a cordless soldering iron.Husband now has his eyes on it so I may have to buy another before the offer ends.  :(

Is the soldering iron a rechargeable one or just replace the battery when they’re flat I saw them when I was looking at the grinder but couldn’t find any info on the box if it recharges I may have to go fetch myself one

Yes, same sort of establishment    Cheap supermarket with "sin bins" of goodies, some of which are perfectly decent stuff for the money.   We do our main grocery shop in our local Lidl, saves loads of money.

The soldering iron comes with 4 AA batteries.  Maybe able to use rechargeable AA.
