The Craftsman 4 pc. pliers set puts a lot of versatility within easy reach. The diagonal, long-nose, slip-joint and arc joint pliers all come with a silver finish and coated handles so the’re less likely to slip out of your hand or bruise your knuckles, and you’re less likely to lose your grip. One minute you're a mechanic, the next you're doing electrical work – no matter the job you’re doing, you know you can always rely on Craftsman.
This set has been excellent. I got the set a few weeks ago and Ive used them all so far and I have no complaints. The handles have a solid feel to them and the cutters are great. They were made in USA too. As long as they stay made in USA, I would recommend them to anyone.
The marketing folks continue to put together sets that require buying other single products so you finally have a useful set. The 8 in. long-nose pliers and 6-3/4 in. slip-joint pliers are backwards for sizes if this set becomes your only pliers. The long nose handles should be shorter and the slip joint handles should be longer. No surprise however since this is the usual case for any set of Craftsman tools. It would be much more useful if you had the opportunity to build your own sets and still get the better pricing of a set versus buying individual tools. But that would defeat the marketing scheme!
They are made in USA that very good...
This is a decent set. If I were building it, I'd replace the long nose pliers with the other 8" and the cutting pliers with the 7" wide jaw pliers. Not a bad set, but those changes would make it fantastic. Made in USA, great construction, great value.
High quality made in USA hand tools. And, YES, it does matter.
