These snap ring pliers get a pass from me: I got them on sale for $1.99 and figured I'd toss them into my tool kit I keep in the car, and I've had to use them a half dozen times including R&R the snap ring on a truck AC compressor clutch. The only problen is you need to replace the funky pin that holds the jaws to the handle with a small nut and machine screw (#8 IIRC) but for the money they work pretty good. I just got this pick up tool on sale, and the lock-screw broke at the weld the first time I tried to tighten it down. Now the funny think is that the inner telescoping section is retained, so you can't just pull it out and use it that way. I haven't welded the nut back on yet but it was on sale and I think when it is fixed it will be useful. Anyway, if you have a welder then it is OK but if you don't then I'd pass. Just got one of these saws, I had high hopes and boy am I disappointed: maybe I got a bad one but it cannot cut well at all. I'm returning it.
