Aldi to offer cut-price DIY tools
The store's own-brand Powercraft range includes a 950w belt sander at £19.99 and a selection of assorted wood drills at £2.99 each. Customers can choose from Forstner drill bits, drill saw bits, a screw fit punch set, a countersink drill set or a plug cutter set.

Also available are a 1200w router at £19.99 and a router table at £24.99.

The Powercraft range was originally supplied by Omega Wolf, who went into administration in 2009. At the time, administrators KPMG cited Omega Wolf's relationship with the supermarket as a main contributing factor to the company's demise.

The name 'POWERCRAFT'is the brand name and patent belonging to Aldi. Omega Wolf is only one company supplying these tools under the brand and they were not the original company to do this in the UK. It is still posible to purchase tools under the POWERCRAFT brand and the companies involved will honour your warranty. Most have repair facilities in the UK and are large international companies with huge assets so don't be afraid that you will lose your money.

With a hung parliament, unpopular Conservative/DUP alliance, and maybe even another vote on the cards - what is your biggest worry after the fall-out of the election?
