They work, but not the same quality...
on June 9, 2011
This should be obvious, but as with most other things, you get what you pay for. yes these cost less than name brand quality tools. Now I can not attest to the quality of every "name brand" but having owned a set of these for a year, can say that the quality of this set is not up there. If you need it for a single use and do not want to spend the money on a durable tool, it is a great deal. However if you are looking for tools to have around for when you need them, or things you use routinely; look elsewhere. I use my dremel primarily for cleaning glass (I work with hot glass) and use it on an almost daily basis. These points did work for cleaning the (porcelain) release out of flame worked glass, as well as the good points I have. *However* there is a point I bought from a glass supplier for $2.50 which I have had for over 10 years. This set has substantial rust on it after less than a year. At $5-6 for the set, the points cost less than $2/ each, but, as I said, they are effectively disposable. Most people will not see the rust/ erosion as fast as I do because I live in Hawaii. High humidity and salt in the air make things degrade faster.... but, the point I bought from my glass supplier is still good after more than 10 years in the same environment. You get what you pay for.
