Shame on you! That's what the Chinese do. If you don't like their prices, buy Apex Tools or design and make your own. There's enough IP being stolen already.
I don't think he was suggesting copying their tools, just modeling some open source ones anyone can use.

I've actually been considering this, but to get the necessary tolerances it's have to be printed on an SLA printer such as the Form 2. Plastic extrusion isn't precise enough. SLA printers tend to be more expensive, so it's not necessarily a big savings.
