I work in hydraulics with the many socket-head capscrews in some larger sizes. I enjoy getting friends who brag about the low cost tool set they bought and getting them to compare their wrenches vs a REAL (for me, JH Williams/SnapOn Industrial) wrench on say a 9/16 or 16mm Allen wrench in a vise. The slop will amaze you.

The other problem is in nuts from the box stores; I think they buy them specially to almost work with either metric or English wrenches.

Spot on, cheap tools don't compare in any way to the good steel and good fitting of high quality tools.
