That’s a little too general a question in my opinion. Not everything made in China is junk (though a lot of people would like you to think that). In fact, a lot of the tools you buy from major manufacturers are now produced in China or other countries that many people regard as producing junk.

If you’re instead meaning, “What do you think about cheaply-made, seemingly inferior tools?” Then I actually have an opinion on that. I don’t buy them unless I need them for one or two things and don’t mind them being destroyed or being essentially disposable. I don’t need every one of my tools to be a top-of-the-line, “built to last several lifetimes” investment.

Since I turn a lot of wrenches, I often have a supply of cheap sockets and wrenches that I use for banging on, heating and bending, and building custom tools with (by cutting and welding).
