I've been to two local Lowe's stores in the last two days...
(don't ask ) and noticed the Craftsman line being
installed... asked the persons in the tool section about replacement
of tools . Was told that they would honor same as Sears policy...
they said the tool line would be in place within the next two weeks.

I noticed we had the tool boxes and larger stuf on display. I am waiting to see what they clearance to make room for the line. There have been some decent hammers and pry bars in the clearance rack but they didn't last too long. I often see stuff but don't want to spend my whole check there. Jim

Black and Decker bought the craftsman name awhile back. Sears has nothing to do with Craftsman any more.

Sears has been dead for a long time, they just haven't buried the body yet. They just announced they are closing 70 some stores again, and they sold off the tool line to Lowes and Ace. This is the beginning of the end of Sears.

They have not kept pace with the times. The stores are dated, the employees look like they are bored to death, and the stores are empty. When I go to our local Sears, there are 3 cars in the parking lot and the employees are leaning on washers and dryers . Their "lifetime" warranty also changed, they now give you an inferior repaired unit instead of a brand new good one.

I have a $300 floor jack that Dan gave me for a gift a few years ago, it leaked and settled down from day one. I took it back, and they said their lifetime warranty only pertains to "hand tools". I guess you do not use a jack with your hands !

The only Craftsman tools I buy today are OLD ONES from swap meets. Their current lineup was junk.

I found out last night that Lowe's we will honor the Sears guarantee. I know the last time I took a ratchet back to sears they rebuilt it on the spot. I don't think at this time we are doing that. I haven't heard anyone being trained to do it. Jim
