If these are as low quality as suspected, the metal cutting blades will fail and the needle-nose will bend.

They bathe them in oil because otherwise they'd rust shut before you opened the package.  It's super cheap metal.

I bought a whole tool kit (about the size tools you'd give a very small person) because it was cheaper at $19 than an ad... (more)

$5. Normally around $6! RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN to your local store!

lol. my guess is that most people will spend more on gas getting to their local store than the $2 savings on this free in-store pickup.

I bought this last time it was on here (FW). It's a beautiful set. And IMHO it's good quality.

2 things I don't like much. They oil it quite a bit. You can see the oil through the packaging. But look like all brand oil theirs just the same. The other is rust. I was fixing the water pip when it spray all over, one of this pliers was within proximity and it got wet, next day rust was forming on it. A little WD40 should fix the rust. I just don't like tools that easily get rust.

The pliers open and close smoothly and they don't shift side ways. I don't see anything to quality "mediocre". Like saying it's a "mediocre" boulder.

It function like it should and meet my requirement to do small fixing around the house. I've seen tools in dollar store and this is far better quality than that.

rated:
Yeah, I would not make a special trip to the store, but if you are going anyways, for $5 this is a decent set. Great for the average homeowner.

I don't know how they can make them, package, ship and then sell them for $4.90 (2% Cash Back)

As a heads up: The typical HD runaround applies here. You might be better off going to the store and buying them to circumvent the (and I'm going to say it) lazy employees that don't want to go back, pick one up and put it behind the customer service counter for your order.

I got a call from them to cancel my order, went over, and LO AND BEHOLD, a tray of 20 is sitting in the clearance area. Yup. Out of stock all right. This is really par for the course for this store, they cancelled a rolling toolbox I ordered before (with three of them sitting, boxed, in FRONT of the customer service counter - nice.)

  Talk to the manager that this is occurring and as a shareholder you find this is ominous of things to come and should you bring it up at the annual meeting?

I would say subpar metallurgy qualifies these as mediocre.

In the quoted material above, I've now underlined the relevant section that WorkerAnt reports that causes me to disagree with his statement 'I don't see anything to quality "mediocre".' A better quality alloy would resist rust more effectively.

In other words, he said that they rust more easily than his expectation. Such an observation takes a tool's rating from "good quality" down to "mediocre".

Anyway, that type of mediocre seems quite reasonable for under a buck a piece. I won't be buying because I need larger pliers, but if I needed small ones I would tolerate their shortcoming and spend my savings on something else.

rated:
I said i don't like tools that get rust, i did expect the rust. Want to see it myself if it rust.

The type of metal and quality of the metal are two seperate things. You are mixing them.

rated:
great price on this plier set.  will stop off on the way home from work to pick these up as a set to go in my secondary tool box

rated:
I'm pretty sure the regular price for this set is $8 or so. Bottom of the barrel quality, comparable to Harbor Freight.

rated:
yes.... however, they could at least spray a rust resistant coating to the tools during the manufacturing process... would cost .05... however, when you have to sell a tool set for $5 or less, apparently .05 is too much. At least people are reporting they work (as opposed to bending/snapping)... that's something.

rated:
Good quality tools should not rust 1 day after the first time they get wet, I call that poor quality. Probably because of cheaper steel used to make these poor quality tools.

doesn't look like they try to save that 5cents.  They do use quite a bit of oil on it.  So much that I think it use more than just lubricate the pliers.  I did look and compare with other brand pliers laying around, they all were oily.  I compare with other brand name to see why this is so cheap and I couldn't find any.  Bought it, used it, it works great.

Tried to order this at two different local stores. Got two cancellations despite online availability showing. (One store listed 20 available.)

One cancellation email was nothing but page after page of the following:

Oil is used to prevent rusting in the package on the shelf (not just for this tool, plenty of other tools too, as well as brake rotors/drums). It must be cheaper than a more permanent anti-rust coating.

must be.  But the non rust metal would be better than the coating.  You can't coat it everywhere and the coat do come off when scratch and stuff.

So why none of them use a metal that doesn't rust?  Only reason I can come up is cause this metal is stronger, could be cheaper too.  And it shin to almost stainless steel, that to me the metal is good quality.

If these are as low quality as suspected, the metal cutting blades will fail and the needle-nose will bend.

I bought a whole tool kit (about the size tools you'd give a very small person) because it was cheaper at $19 than an adult-size HD wooden hammer and two pair of low-end Stanley pliers. I came across this discussion while looking for a DIY remedy for all the rust. In many cases, you ultimately get what you pay for. I'll be glad when the move is over and I can get my own personal tools from storage. I didn't say "you ALWAYS get what you paid for," because so many of my tools originally came from my grandpa and my dad. They were free, but in my opinion, they are priceless.
