    Anyone else's break that quick? Supposed to be professional grade, and they break when I squeezed them. other than that I'm pleased with them.

    Not sure what he mint about white man thing either. Regarding the tools it seems they are all made out the good old USA now day. But still cost a butt load of money to buy the cheap crap.

    Metal bends and doesn't bounce back. GOOD plastic can take a beating!!

    That depends on what kind of metal and plastic your talking about.

    I guess lead and mercury may have more plasticity than most plastic but can't think of any practical examples for a temperature clamp. Is there some kind of metal you are thinking about?

    Use engineering plastic like used on cell phones, super glue doesn't even work on that stuff. Bumpers on trucks sometimes has a plastic guard on it and that stuff is tough, you have to cut it with a saw because it doesn't break. Truck bed liners and list goes on and on.
