This Metal Earth tool kit is perfect for anyone who enjoys creating the wide range of 3D Metal Earth models. This tool kit comes with three different tools which facilitate in the building of 3D Museum Quality Models from steel sheets. Clipper: Great for cutting pieces from the metal sheet. Eliminates the need to remove each piece by bending back and forth Flat Nose Pliers: Used to hold parts securely and to create tight connections by pulling and twisting the tabs Needle Nose Pliers: Also used to hold parts plus bend and twist tabs but can reach places in which the flat nose pliers do not fit

The cutter--simply DOES NOT cut...like at all
The shorter pliers--leaves dents in anything you use it on ruining the tiny pieces for the figurines
The long nose pliers--semiworks, but not as well as tweezers
I ended up having to go to home depot and get some real tools.
DO NOT BUY THESE!
Issues to note:
- Gaps at the closing end of the tool (kind of a big deal when dealing with materials these are supposedly built for)
- Machining residue left on tools (nbd to clean, but indicator of how much they care)
- Uneven tooling on sides (if you try and be smart and use edges for bending rolling, these tool are a step ahead and will disappoint you even further with their lack of grip/consistent gap)
Really, please, don’t waste your money. Be smarter than me and heed the warnings left in these reviews.
This set runs a little over $10, yea? Lets keep this in mind.
I stumbled across metal earth and quickly fell in love! This is frankly a decent starters kit. I actually use these the majority of the time far into my 20+ somethingish models.
With that said - yea those other reviews that claim the tools aren't 100% accurately aligned. If you purchase any other set in this price range - well it makes this set look great. Seriously I know. I'll be posting a review in the near future of what didn't work. So in my mind and rationalization this is a small concern especially compartiviely speaking.
I'd recommend these to any metal earth fans just starting out. The set i received was pretty well aligned, although there were some gaps visible when held to a light. BUT this did NOT prove problematic.
For its price - go for it. You'll most likely spend more on hobby pliers piecing a set like this individually. Also if you can pull of the bonus comment then you'll see even at a 20 price range still a great deal.
BONUS COMMENT: if you feel the alignment of the pliers unbearable for some reason… Grab a handheld rotary tool (a.k.a. A Dremel or if you're on a budget some sort of knock & chorded Will most likely be cheaper. Also there's two different thoughts of battery verse power cord whatever floats your boat). Anyways yeah use that tool carefully on a level surface – with the proper protection and what not – To manipulate the pliers to close tighter… Or even sharpen the litter cutter tool. And that's just if your picky like me.
Additional tools you might need:
More narrow needle nose pliers to use on small pieces and hard to reach places
I used medical forceps to get a real grip and hold a piece so I didn't have to grip the pliers continuously.
I used pencils of various sizes to curve the pieces around.
Superglue if you happen to snap something ; )
Tip: Laying your pieces out on a numbered board can help keep the pieces in order.

Snipers do not snip,jaws too large and do not meet as one would expect.Needle nose bowed again not meeting tightly. Pliers jaws are not of equal size,again not closing tightly against each other.They are not precision made. I have bought better tools from £ shop.
I would NOT recommend these tools to anyone. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY
I did improve one with the tools I had already, but these were far far better and perfectly suited to the kits. :)
You can probably find all of these tools, cheaper, and in your hands faster, at your local hardware store. Also, tweezers are your friend ... substitute them for the flat nosed pliers.
