they do look nice but I've spent a fortune on Snap-On and Xcelite from my days working on airplanes
my biggest regret was leaving about $20k worth of air tools and compressors behind when I landed my first engineering job - I was so happy to get out of the aviation business that I didn't want to look at another air tool again...wish I had them now

from the abyss
I've got a collection of Channellocks, off brand dikes and lineman's pliers, and (mostly Craftsman, but many others) screwdrivers. As much as I'd like to spend $200 on a set of these tools, I just can't bring myself to do it. Mine work fine.
Is there an app that will prevent you from buying shit on Amazon?

If SIGforum and Amazon didn't exist I'd be a rich man. I need some good well made channel locks, so out comes the CC.

Count me in the group looking at them now. So if I were to buy, which ones does everyone recommend?
i have been using 10 inch alligator pliers on the job for 30 yrs

All of Knipex's tools are very high quality. The really unique tool they make is the Pliers Wrench (and also the Cobra Wrench).
I have the Pliers Wrench in 125mm (5"), 150mm (6"), 180mm (7") and 250mm (10") sizes.
I think the 7" and 10" are both very useful sizes. I bought the 5" and 6" to try both and see which one I wanted to put in my little "stuff pouch" that goes in my work bag. I ended up with the 5" ones in the pouch. They're tiny, they look like a little toy, but they're pretty stout.

+1 to this. These are just like the pliers I had for over 30 years before I finally dulled the teeth. They are like the HK or Sig of pliers. I was not familiar with the Pliers Wrench but I can see one being handy.
"But, as luck would have it, he stood up. He caught that chunk of lead." Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock
The 3 piece set of Alligator pliers (7", 10", 12") is a good deal for three very useful sizes.
Priced at Amazon.

I was a retailer of these many years ago. I would stand on the handle as seen in this video and amaze techs. https://youtu.be/41WRX7tJLx0
