I had a forum topic about them a while ago, you can take a look there and get some ideas from the comments left, as for my own two cents, I wouldent buy them, most people that I talked to that had Craftex werent overly impressed, that being said some loved them. I think I will steer clear of Craftex.

Hi Jay it also depends on your budget. You get what you pay for. For a hobby person i think they would work fine, but if you can afford it spend the money. If you live in Canada i might say buy the general line of tools.
