You let dirt fall on your tools, and don't clean it off right away?
I've got some 45-year-old pairs of VISE-grip pliars that are as good as
the day they were made, sans a few scars on the teeth. I bought 'em new;
took care of them, and didn't use them as grinding holders or welding
accessories, except for the two Vise-Grip welders' clamps I use regularly
for that purpose. By needs, they won't last as long as the pliars have.

What kind of grease do you use for your vice (the most common vice
you own) or for your vice-grips locking pliers?
What I use on my VISE is molybdenum disulfide. You can get it at a bicycle
store. They call it (dry slide) I use this on any metal items that have
friction. People that regrind engine cam shafts soak the cams in this
solution then let dry. The Moly coating has a 100,000 pounds per square inch
toughness. This leaves a dry coating of moly on the service. I have also
used it on plastic (nylon?) bearings and they never wear out. Search on your
computer for molybdenum disulfide and see all about it. WW
