    These tools work well for Metal Earth models, but…, February 5, 2015

    I’ve built several Metal Earth models with some old tools, and figured I should buy this set which is made by the same company that makes the models. Two of the three tools work very well, better than my old tools. The snips fit perfectly in the spaces to be cut and are sharp enough to cut through the metal easily so you don’t deform any pieces from bending them back and forth to get them out. The flat nose pliers work really well for twisting tabs for secure fits, but only work where there is a lot of space because of their width. My only complaint is that the needle nose pliers in my set didn’t close properly at the end. It looks like it might just be a manufacturing defect, but because the tip doesn’t close completely, they’re basically useless. The handles provide a good grip, and the tools feel heavy enough so you know they’re not flimsy or weak, but not too heavy that your hands get tired from using them after a while. All in all, a good set of tools for working on the Metal Earth kits, unless you get a defective tool.

    Poor quality., January 30, 2015

    Poor quality manufacturing on two of the three pliers There is excess metal on the face of the short and tall pliers which causes them to not be able to close all the way. Image shows a package but I just got 3 pliers in a plastic bag. I will have to use the grinder to remove the excess metal, and then sandpaper to smooth the plier faces so they do not scratch my projects.

    Cutting pliers are good, they are designed to fit in the notches in the metal earth sheets to snip out the parts.

    I should have just gone to Sears or something to buy some pliers there.

    Very poor manufacturing quality on 2 of the 3 tools, February 22, 2015

    Very poor manufacturing quality on 2 of the 3 tools. The long nose pliers have a gap at the tip when you close them all the way so basically you are unable to even use them since the whole point it to use the tip of the needle nose pliers to grab and you are unable to due to the gap. The cutting pliers spring back action in the handle broke the first day of use so every time you cut you have to reopen the pliers manually instead of springing back. The only good tool was the big flat nose pliers which were good for helping to bend the big pieces and twist tabs. Totally not worth the price I paid for the “lack of quality” in this set. Go to a hardware store you will have much better luck.
