Aldi stuff is OK, one of my spray guns came from there, tyre inflator and my spray oiler.

The 3/8" Snap on which cost me £5 ohmy.gif at a boot sale.
It was covered in grime and I didn't realise what it was till I put it through the dishwasher at work. (everything goes through that) laugh.gif

For £5 I was rather happy biggrin.gif
Life time guarantee too wink.gif

I use a lot of air tools at work, so get given kit or repair stuff they have thrown out.
My air kit goes something like:

Two air saws (great for fitting glass sun roof's in years gone by.)
Air grinder,
DA sander,
Air drill,
Shultz gun,
At least three spray guns,
Shot blaster,
Two 1/2" impact guns
3/4" impact gun,
Three 1/2" air wrenches (one at work)
3/8 air wrench,
Air oiler,
Tyre inflater,
Various blow down guns.

I could put some garage work shops to shame laugh.gif
I can take DIY to a new level wink.gif
It's a pity I don't have a proper garage anymore.
