Decent deal, mediocre quality – Snap-Ring Pliers (4-Piece Set) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This is a decent enough tool for the price.
Cons:
The build quality is a bit mediocre, but if you only need these every so often, you should be fine. If it's something you'd use frequently, I'd suggest a higher quality tool.
The maximum spread is only 21mm, so if you're working with a larger ring, you'll need a larger set of pliers.
Other:
I was using them instead of a more expensive pin vise, and they can't really fill in for one of those. The pins are a bit too large for some uses, and the metal may bend.
Bottomline:
If you need snap ring pliers for infrequent use, these will do the trick.
