Are Cal Hawk tools good or are they pieces of crap?

We have a discount store around our house and it is selling Cal Hawk tools for extremely discounted prices, Is it Worth getting?

Update:

Regardless of price, How do these rank on the “Quality” scale?

    Stay away from them. There is nothing more frustrating than bad tools. Spend the money and build up your essential tools with reputable brands such as Craftsman, Kobalt, Stanley, etc. You didn’t say if you are talking about hand tools or power tools. This is especially true if it’s power tools!! I have never found an off brand power tool that was worth the time it took to get it out of the box.

    The Cal Hawk hand tools are very good. The quality appears to be as good as professional quality. Finish quality is top notch. I haven’t put them through any real stress yet, but so far they are without a doubt the best looking off brand hand tools I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot of hand tools. On the pro side, Craftsman, Snapon, SK, MAC. On the off brand side, more than I can remember. Yep, these look good. I might get a lot more of these, the prices are usually great.

    I have a set of Cal Hawk wrenches. Not worth a dime!!!! 1 3/8 sprung to 1 1/2 first time i used it! Quality is horrible the open ends slip and round bolts off. Too much flex these tools are very frustrating pittsburg and klutch are a much better choice if trying to save money and get quality.

    These are low end occasional use homeowner tools. Tools are an investment, if you do alot of projects, I’d buy something better, Craftsman, Stanley, etc. If all you do is putter around the house, the brand you are asking about is probably OK.

    Everything is relative. I wouldn’t buy them if I had to depend on them every day for my paycheck, but I’d buy them (and have) for occasional use around the house. I don’t always buy the best stuff there is, but I do shop for value. I wouldn’t hesitate if they’re selling at a bargain.

    I’ve bought a “Brake Line Double Flaring Tool Kit” which “flaring bits” were built the wrong way (bad lathe job).

    I only needed them for one single project, but they were useless from the moment they left the production line.

    I ended up fabricating my own flaring bit, which doubled the working time.

    A waste of money and time.

    You are probably tired of looking through stacks and stacks of projects on woodworking in magazines and books of all kinds for some instructions on how to do a certain project. Here is a site which offers 16000 plans https://tr.im/yCYTz

    How would you like to have woodworking plans (actually thousands of them) available to you anytime you wanted them. It would be so easy when you do not have to paw through all kinds of old magazines but have it right there at your fingertips.
