    Table saw seems good

      I just might. Even to use and become familiar with one.

      Wouldn't want to be making any precision pieces with it, though.

        I'll be getting one, was thinking about getting a mitre saw and also need a new circular saw, hopefully this will do most of the cuts I need

        •  

          On needing a circular saw, and Aldi. I bought a kit with a C/Saw from Aldi in 2014. STUPID!! I had a mate who built most of his house with two Aldi cordless drills and I thought the kit was a good idea. The C/saw cuts out fairly quickly from overload. I'm not cutting anything harder than pine. And one of the batteries died. Bad cells…

          Just a warning…

          @PurpleWinter: that's why with Aldi you need to manage your diy project to complete within 60 days of purchase.

          If the capacity of the Ozito sliding mitre saw from Bunnings is enough I'd recommend that instead (also $149). I have the Bunnings table saw from a previous special and barely used it because the cutting fence is just a pain to set up so it's square. And from the look of it the design is pretty similar with a simple think square locking sliding bar.

          I'm even thinking of what do with mine as I'd probably refund mine even though it was bought quite long ago. Realistically I'd probably just settle with it.

          On the other hand my (cheapie non-siding) Ozito mitre saw has done pretty well for n00b uses. The sliding version can do dado cuts which neither the fixed mitre saw or this table saw can do (because of the guard).

        •  

          @dufflover: the sliding mitre saw from bunnings only cuts 210mm although up until recently they did have one that cut 254mm, I've seen it both online and in store, I wonder why it's not on the website anymore.

        •  

          @onetwothree: I noticed that as well, as I thought it had dropped from $179 - on more careful look of the website I did finally notice it changed from 254mm to 210mm. For a power tool n00b I reckon it'd be ok, a bit like someone after their first DIY flexible drill, this seems ok for a first saw. If it comes with the same blade as the non-sliding version it's a 48 tooth blade which is on the high side per inch apparently.

          I bought the non-sliding version because:
          1. back then I really did think it would be a rare use tool, potentially just once off
          2. back then they had the larger 254mm version which cost $179 like I said, and for potential once off I couldn't justify the $100 extra.

          That's the perspective of why I don't think the table saw is great if it's anything like the Bunnings one. Very occasional DIY without the best handling skills = not as good result with this vs sliding mitre if it fits. I mean someone with skill would probably not need all of this and make do with a cheapie circular saw!

        •  

          @dufflover: I had a circular saw but I cut through the power cable! I fixed it with some electrical tape but the join must not have been strong enough as it came apart when I was using it and the wires looked all burnt and melted so I decided not to push my luck any further with that one and threw it in the bin.

          I'm far from a professional but need to do some frames so need a saw to mitre the corners. I'll probably give the Aldi one a go and take it back if it's no good.

    •  

      Would this cut through ironbark wood? Would be nice to have something to make BBQ chunks smaller.

      •  

        How thick are they? A table saw is really designed to rip sheet stock.
        (Despite the catalogue showing someone trying to mitre a 4x4 with it…)

        •  

          ahh, right. Thinking chunks of wood, like you'd buy from the service station. Not planks.

          Guess this is not what im looking for. Maybe a drop saw.

      •  

        Reciprocating Saw?

      •  

        My understanding is that you shouldn't cut this kind of wood with a disc saw (circular, drop, table) but rather a chain, band saw or reciprocating saw.

    • +7 votes

      Table saws, the ones that you'll be ripping anything substantial with are much, much larger and much sturdier than the one available from Aldi. If you're thinking of ripping large sheets of MDF, or melamine forget it; you just won't get precision clean cuts with this sort of tool, even if you have multiple helpers. These tools are just too small, their fences are too short and flimsy and their bases aren't stable enough to support and easily and comfortably manage anything that large (I'm talking 2400x1200 sheets and the like). So, what to do? Well, most DIY'ers will probably find that in order to rip large sheets of anything it's easier to control the blade than it is to control the workpiece, so get yourself a circular saw and a fence; what's a fence? It's anything really, you can buy one that is universal or you can make your own. This is what I mean; https://www.bunnings.com.au/craftright-50-aluminium-clamp-an...

      Is something like the Aldi table saw useful for anything? Yep, it's good for ripping small work pieces, anything that you can comfortably and easily hold and manipulate yourself, it's great if you're installing floating floorboards and need to make longer accurate rips with thin work pieces that would be too cumbersome and awkward with a circular saw, or for trimming pine 2x4 for instance.

      Just remember guys, a lot of people have lost fingers and parts of their hands when using table saws and they're very dangerous.

      •  

        Didn't know about that sort of product! I know people fences out of anything even scrap pieces of which I got a few for $2 from the Bunnings off-cut box (many times they just let me take it for free) but even that takes some basic engineering skills which I gotta say I probably don't have. Either way even with the cost of something like that Craftright ontop of a circular saw, still works out cheaper than the table saw which ultimately could not be any better to work with than having a crack at it with a circular saw?

        Slow and steady wins the race?
        It's a serious comment; I'm getting more and more tempted to somehow off-load my Bunnings table saw and chancing getting a circular + fence instead.

        • +1 vote

          It really does just depend on the kind of work that you'll be doing.

          Ideally we'd have both tools but understandably finances are often not amenable to this, so in this circumstance I'd suggest that for most people a circular saw and a rail/fence would be more versatile and easier to use.

          As a general rule, in most respects, I'd agree that slow and steady is more often than not the best approach to most jobs.

      I did buy this table saw the last time they had it on special. The first time I plugged it in, it wouldn't start. I took it back and got a replacement. The replacement lasted exactly 7 cuts of Pine decking. The motor blew up. Took it back and got refunded. This one looks exactly the same and has the same motor. I would not recommend it. But I have to say Aldi were very cool about replacing it and then refunding the second time.

    Any idea on the stated lumens of the globes?

    perceived Lumens of globes is gonna depend on colour as well. At 5 bucks, if there's cool white and a warm white, buy one of each and test them out. There's no other way…

    Opinions on the table saw would be appreciated. I badly need one but if there's a table saw of better quality somewhere for $50 more, i'd like to know…

    • +4 votes

      For $150 with 5 year warranty you're doing pretty well. Obviously it's not gonna be Makita quality, but here's the equivalent Ozito from Bunnings as comparison: https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-250mm-2000w-saw-table_p629.... (Spoiler alert, it's +$70).

      • +2 votes

        The Ozito appears to be the same actual thing, just in different colours. The only difference I could spot was a small black circle above the "go" button on the Aldi one, which is not in the Ozito rendering.

        •  

          Yeah they probably both come out of the same factory in China.

        Thanks mate. I'm no expert, but the Aldi saw has a lot of similarities with the Ozito. Hope they stock enough of them…

    Any opinions on petrol chainsaw? Should I get one from Bunnings or from Aldi instead?

      Looks the same as the one I have. It's a few years old now, and has cut down and diced up many eucalypts (sustainably, of course).
      Lasted longer than our previous Husqvarna so far!

      •  

        Thanks for the input. I guess I will also need to buy a plastic fuel can to get the petrol to it.

        Do you need to service the saw at all? or just some lubrication will do?

        •  

          Just making sure the air filter is clean, and you use the correct two stroke mix. The chain will need sharpening occasionally, the frequency depending on what you're cutting. Aldi also have chain sharpeners every now and then.

          I'd buy another, but the first is still going strong! :)

      If Ozito sell a petrol chainsaw at Bunnings, go with that!

      3yr REPLACEMENT warranty. No repairs, no stuffing about. Just a receipt and wait at the service counter for a brand new one if any dramas. I'm really starting to build up a nice collection of Ozito products of late. I just recently bought a $29 Ozito 100mm grinder to cut CONCRETE. Got a really nice blade for it thinking I'd kill it for sure and then just get a replacement. Like a hot knife through butter… terrific bit of kit.

      Same with the Ozito sliding compound mitre saw. Double bevel (leans both ways), 254mm (not too big not too small), and for $179 it's less than a third of the price of the Hitachi/Makita ones. Again, 3yr replacement warranty. I used to be a brand snob… Makita handmedowns from Dad lasting me 30yrs. But they aren't the same anymore. Old ones made in Japan and rock solid, new ones made in China or SE Asia. Old school quality just isn't there anymore, and when they only offer 12m warranty its not exactly screaming 'we back our product'.

      Ozito baby!

        Ozito petrol chainsaw comes with a one year warranty https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-406mm-41cc-petrol-chainsaw...

        Yeah, I can vouch for Ozito gear too. Warranty is easy as. I've got a Ozito Dremel that's done a ton of work and I purchased a electric screwdriver that died after about a week but bunnings replaced it without any questions. I'd buy Ozito again.

      Posting past experience or reading reviews of previous offerings is next to useless with Aldi's own electronics, but happens in many Bauhn TV deals😯

      Generally different model each sale.

      Deciphering Aldi model codes:
      Model #ATVS48-0417
      0417 = April 2017 sale model
      ATV48 = Aldi TV 48"
      S = probably supplier code as it is on other Aldi trademarked "Bauhn" electronics (not just TV) supplied by Tempo.

          (Units only land in Australia just before the sale date. I unfortunately know a little too much about the Aldi supply process by Tempo, through my dealings with the supplier.)

          Model now #ATVUHD48-0417
          S = Smart
          UHD = UHD
          That makes more sense. Having S in the model number confused me as it is a UHD, without Smart features.

    48" 4K TV for less than $500?!

      Why is it shit? If you were in Melbourne, I'd gladly relieve you of it. Your profile says you're in Adelaide. :(

        It's not what I expected, hoping for more of an upgrade coming from a crappy TCL/Generic/Chinese FHD screen. The top two corners are 'dark' and on a dark screen I can see 'lighter' patches in the centre. I thought i'd have something that I saw in TV shops where the picture is crystal etc etc.

          All TVs are now a panel lottery as all the manufacturers use whatever panels they can source at the time. Different panels even end up in the exact same model TVs (especially the case with Samsung) in some cases.

          Sony don't even manufacture any of their own panels anymore. Most in the AU market are Innolux panels, which is the same OEM manufacturer most generic TVs use, just at a higher spec.

          I have a $4500 65X9300D and I've been through 3 panel replacements and the fourth still isn't perfect, but I can finally settle with it. Quality is irrespective of price these days. It's a gamble. I've seen $1000 TVs look better than my $4500 TV, even though my model is currently rated among the highest in it's price bracket in the market according to RTINGS.

        •  

          That's disappointing to read about your experience with that Sony Model. I purchased the same model on sale for around $700 and have yet to hook it up. I'm really hoping my experience is a bit more positive. All the reviews I could find stated it was a good tv. Hopefully I won't be in the same situation. You said you saw it in the shops and it looked good?

        •  

          I didn't see that particular model in the shops, I must admit. I was talking more in general, when you do go in and see all the TV's set up, they all look very clear/crisp, and I assumed that because my TV was the "flagship" model (i think?) that it would be the same.

          The ratings are all good from what I've read (~8/10 for most uses). I must have just had a bad one.

          No biggie, but i'll probably buy from a highstreet store next time and i'd probably get an OLED that I could physically see before buying. That way, after the sales guy does his spiel on on me, I won't have any problems taking it back if it's not up to scratch!

      Its not HDR.

        True in this case, especially since it's just $499!

        4k = 16 million colors
        4k HDR = 1 billion colors

        Might be worth mentioning that a UHD HDR TV only has to accept a 10-bit signal, it doesn't have to actually display 1.06 billion colors. That's why the spec says 10-bit color, not 1.06 billion colors.

    •  

      Still nothing compared to the $328 JVC 4k 48" around Christmas.

      I can't make a decision now knowing about that missed purchase.

      $499 is good but not $328 good.

    Don't like Aldi conditioning. Other shops have at least a week for specials so you don't have to make sure you have to be there only on a certain day. And if you miss the day, you can be pretty sure it won't be there the next day as they intentionally don't stock a lot. The other things they sell didn't excite me either. Some things are cheaper, but others are comparable price with Colesworths.

    You only have that 1 day to grab a bargain, and most of the time you have to elbow your way in. Even things that are not really hot items most likely won't be there if you come after the special day.

      You want a good deal, you have to go get it. Good deals aren't going to sit around and wait for you to come. Other people want good deals too.

      •  

        Is it still a good deal even if you don't really need it but still buy it? Sure with infinite amount of money no one would care. while I am happy to get a good deal, I also can miss it. That is the best deal, not spending a cent.

        Plus taking into account you if you do not live right next door to Aldi which means you have to spend time and money to get there and shop. If it is damn good deal, sure, but like other day when I looked for some night lights I only passed by because it was on my way otherwise it would cost me more if I just went for that.

        •  

          Is it still a good deal even if you don't really need it but still buy it?

          Whose fault would that be? The store, or the buyer?

          You are not getting my point.

          Whose fault would that be? The store, or the buyer?

          Well, it is not that hard to condition people. Buying thing that we don't need just because it is a good deal.

          The store wouldn't be at fault. Marketing companies are there to sell the product.

          Hmm, not sure what your point is. You don't like how their deals get sold out on the first day, now you don't like how they're not near you?

          The point is not whether I like or don't. As I said if you don't live next door to Aldi, which I don't, means you have to make time for just that 1 day. If you were going to buy something like this TV, then most people would make the time instead of doing something else. On the other hand where I was talking about the night light which is fairly cheap, small, you'd think they would have more of it since that wouldn't be much of a hot item. That means if I was going to just buy that item it would cost me more time/money than if I went to Bunnings in the first place. And apart from these bargains I don't find them that much better and cheaper when compared to coleworths. Some things are cheaper, but others are same or more like fruit/vegies. Looked at mushrooms the other day and it was more expensive than at colesworth.

          People will have differing opinions, but I have seen people buying 2 to 3 times more expensive products even though the markets were literary around the corner. probably even having the same supplier.

          When I look at a bargain it goes like this;
          Need
          Want
          Can I wait

          Well, it is not that hard to condition people. Buying thing that we don't need just because it is a good deal.

          So it's the buyer's fault then. It doesn't change the fact that it is a good deal.

          As I said if you don't live next door to Aldi, which I don't, means you have to make time for just that 1 day. If you were going to buy something like this TV, then most people would make the time instead of doing something else.

          OK, what's the problem with that?

          On the other hand where I was talking about the night light which is fairly cheap, small, you'd think they would have more of it since that wouldn't be much of a hot item.

          It probably depends on how much stock they can get, at what prices. I see plenty of cheap items that sit around for ages and get marked down. With your night light example, maybe because it's fairly cheap, lots of people buy it, so they sell out quick.

          That means if I was going to just buy that item it would cost me more time/money than if I went to Bunnings in the first place.

          You (and lots of us) clearly know what ALDI special buys stock is like, so if you go out of your way to buy a cheap item and it's sold out, that's a risk you decided to take with the full knowledge that you might miss out. If you valued your time more than the discount, then you shouldn't have bothered going.

        •

          I said if it is a good deal like this TV and wanted it, yes we would go for it, or as I said people would make time to go for it.

          perhaps you weren't clear in explaining your point.

          And perhaps I wasn't. I wasn't bothered that with big items they wouldn't have many. It is expected. But as I explained, something as small as a night light, not really hot item and a lot cheaper than the TV, easy to store, still was nowhere to be seen even after a few days. Didn't expect it to be out of stock so soon. And if I was after just that item I wouldn't be in any rush to go get it.

          It doesn't change the fact that it is a good deal.

          Didn't say it (TV) wasn't a good deal.

          OK, what's the problem with that?

          No problem at all. Just saying I wouldn't be in any rush for something like a night light.

          It probably depends on how much stock they can get, at what prices. I see plenty of cheap items that sit around for ages and get marked down. With your night light example, maybe because it's fairly cheap, lots of people buy it, so they sell out quick.

          We can only guess.

          If you valued your time more than the discount, then you shouldn't have bothered going.

          And I didn't. The reason I went there a few days later was because I knew I'd be passing by Aldi in a few days. As I said, if it was the only thing I wanted, it would cost me more than it is worth. And that is just taking petrol money into account. Once upon time they said Bill Gates would lose more money if he dropped $1000 and went to pick it up than if he just continued walking as each second he was getting $3000.

      It's Aldi's Special Buys™ (while stocks last) marketing strategy to bring in the punters.

      It's not for our benefit, but Aldi's to provoke impulse buying of these specials (if I don't buy now, it'll be gone later) & hope you'll also shop for ordinary stock while they've got you there. Works twice a week for Aldi😯

      As for other stores stocking specials for a week… Telstra 4GX WiFi $9 @Coles - supplied with only 2 per store near me at start of this week long sale. Others reported similar shortages. So worse than Aldi - sold out in many stores in first hours of sale😢

    does anyone know how these TVs perform @ 2560 x 1440 by any chance?

    my video card supports up to that resolution and I was looking at 1 or 2 monitors, but since it's for general work, spreadsheets, etc… this seems a much better/cheaper solution if it can display text clearly at that resolution

    Bunnings dropped the price on their equivalent Ozito table saw to beat Aldi by $1. As others have mentioned—it looks to be the exact same saw with different colouring.
