2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good workmanship., 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Draper DIY Series 12534 5-Piece Carbon Steel Mini Pliers Set with PVC-Dipped Handles (DIY & Tools)
I bought this set for general small duties on electronics/computers etc, nothing especially heavy duty.

While the materials that they are made from is of a decent enough quality, the workmanship that has gone into them is not so good. Most of the set doesn't click together flush, and the pinching pliers (see the photo I uploaded above) is out by a mile. If they were priced around the £4-5 mark it might have been worth grinding them down to make a decent enough set, but not at the current price of nearly £9. Similar tools are available in pound shops/market stalls for much less if you want to put the effort into making them flush yourself.

Overall, if you plan to use them for making Jewelery or something else light and don't mind paying the price then they should be fine, if you need them for something that needs precision, look elsewhere.
