Hi all: Never used US Pro tools so I was wondering if they are up to the Job? have a dealer over here selling up & he's selling them at quite good prices. I've been fancying a Gearless Ratchet but not going to pay the price if not any good.

Cheers: Andy

Tool Junkie? Add me to that list brother :D I love tools / toolstores, you can never have too many quality tools. I used to have a Big Snap On toolkit until some thieving piece of Dishonourable C**p stole it. :verymad:
Tools or Engagement Ring, No contest buy the tools & then Run like Hell before she catches you. :lol: .

I could'nt resist it, Just ordered the Gearless Ratchet screwdriver, a set of Nielsen Mole Grips & a set of Nielsen 3/8" drive Torx bits, think i've got enough tools now (Well till the next time) :lol: Good song by the way.

I’m not familiar with the brand “US Pro Tools” . I would surmise it to be an “overseas marketing name”

Quality hand tools that were/are made in the U.S.A are very expensive even when purchased in the States….without taxes, duties, and shipping.

The following tool manufactures are/were USA made and known for high / good quality : Snap-On, Mac, Matco, Craftsman, Proto, S-K, KD Tools, Klein, Channel-Lock, Vise-Grip, Leslie,Allen and others.Many of these were made by Danaher Tool Group.

This is dated information because much of our industry is at idle, or has gone to China.

Hi Guys: Thanks for the replies, US Pro tools are listed by the dealer as coming from America but we all know, that means nothing. As for prices the US Pro Gearless Ratchet would normally cost the equivalent of $40-60 US over here depending on where you buy. This guy is selling them off for $19.98 US, it was'nt the price I was asking about though it was just the quality. If they're quality then I don't mind the cost, I don't buy or use cheap Tools or Test equipment it's just a waste of time.

Dryers, pliers....I do declare !
Tool hooks dangle from my underware.

Wrenches, hex keys, deep wells, stubbies
Don't forget SPF 40 when its sunny.

Hole saw, hee haw, hack saw " Jim Duncan"
Always @ Sears lookin for sumfin.

Torpedo, bullseye all kinds of levels
Cheap azz tools will " give ya the devil"

I carry tools in the truck and in my pack,
Not sure how Moostafa does it on his Yak.

Torches, solder, duct tapes good
9MM when I go to the hood

Vise Grips, voltage sticks, sockets galore
Just can't help it, gotta have 1 more!

Been using these tools at work for a few days now, the US Pro ratchet is really nice & smooth to use & has a quality feel to it, the Nielsen Vise Grip pliers are Solid with no play in the Jaws & again have a nice solid feel to them.
All in all well worth the money.(Especially the discounted price I got them for).
