MARTYSTOWRIG is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.MARTYSTOWRIG is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I knew Craftsman was junk

I just went to Kmart for the first time in Years. While the wife and Kid were looking for stickers and such I went to the "less woosy" area. I swung through the auto section(Remember when Kmart had a Service garage?) and it is nearly non existant. So I headed down the back aisle twords the outdoor gear. I came across the tool section. They had a huge banner that said "CRAFTSMAN TOOLS SOLD HERE" I was atounded!!
I quit buying tools from Sears a few years ago because I felt the quality went to the birds. WELL THIS PROVES IT.


I hate being right all of the time.

Sears did buy Kmart!...I still like the lifetime warranty of Craftsman, but have become a big fan of Rigid and Husky.

Stanley's pretty good too for El Cheepo tools, nice set to keep under the back seat of the Truck for emergencies.

I've got a lot of Williams and Utica wrenchs and haven't broken any yet. Supprisingly I've had good luck with the Pittsburgh Impacts sold by Harbor Frieght but not much else from there.
