Cheap tools can even be better than expensive professional tools, 
however they can be horrible as well. You simply cannot tell beforehand. 
Expensive professional tools are usually at least reasonable but do not 
be fooled, they sometimes are out of spec dimensionally  causing a bad 
fit on bolt heads and nuts and are not always hard enough. Channellock 
pliers e.g. had some hardness issues in the past. Snap-On is one of the 
best makes.
