    Tips of all sizes available on ebay.

    Sounds like I bought at the same time as you. Mine works well. I've used it quite a bit and it's still going. I've had a few over the years and this one is as good as, or better than any.

    This is a 'special', so stocks will be limited and only available for a few days.

    I have a number of LIDL tools and they've all been good.
    Thanks Geoff,

    I have two soldering stations myself and not really happy with either of them. I'll have a look.
    My experience with small tools sold by Lidl is the same as yours.

    Any tool can be used as a hammer but a screwdriver makes the best chisel

    Yes, it gets you to the Lidl site but if you follow through non food offers it doesn't seem to be there either.
