I needed pliers around a new house and for general purposes these are quite satisfactory.
to find out later these are made in china... i will dump these this spring/summer during one of our yard sale's. to get back at least some of my hard earned american cash back...
I have a lot of Craftsman tools and like them a lot. For the most part the quality is very good however occasionally I get a few that don't meet my expectations. The handles of the 8" pliers from this set were skewed and wouldn't line up correctly. I returned them for another set but two of the three sets on the shelf were the same way. Luckily the third was okay. Anyone who remembers the Craftsman of yesteryear can attest to the inconsistent quality today. Some tools are fine while others are not. Buying a Craftsman tools is like rolling the dice anymore.
Craftsman is always a good buy
