Not good in a tight spot when a lot of pressure is needed. Could not fit a ratchet in said tight spot, so used the supplied handle. The handle bent on the first try. The grooves in the handle to allow the spring loaded adjustment means the handle is weaker in 3 places. To be fair, it may have worked fine with a ratchet. Tool for the job, I guess.

Expectations were low to begin with.
Does NOT fit 1/2 inch. Even smaller taps do not center properly because of how poorly this is made. Like the title says expectations were low but I should have just waited for a better quality one- I suggest you learn from my mistake.

Light duty only
Not heavy duty. The jaws are made from too soft a metal and deform easily. Maybe okay for light duty work in soft metals.
