I've used the cheap imports before...haven't we all? When I was spending big $'s on a new MIG for my new shop, I decided to spend a few more on a REAL pair of welding pliers. Even though I only work part time in my shop, I've used these quite a bit and I love them! Channellock is, plain and simple, the best you can buy. I don't know why I waited so long to buy these since most of my other pliers are Channellocks! The ones that aren't are "disposable".
