Default Craftsman at Lowes

We began this past week to start putting the Craftsman line on the shelves. They are going to do the full display in a week or 2 but some of the kits were there. Jim

A number of "name brand" tools have farmed out to china and other out of country places.... such is the way of the world... not that I have to like it any...

I have some Craftsman tools, my father's set inclusive... they WERE excellent tools with no BS Lifetime Guarantee and affordable price, unlike Snap-Off or MAC.

I'm sorry to see Sears and the Craftsman brand burned in flames. 130 years of history and excellent customer service vanished... like a fart in the wind.

Appreciate the details redid. I've bought Craftsman since the 70's. Still happy with them. Break one, and I would take it back and get a replacement.

Still have my Crescent tools also, made in Jamestown, NY.

Our local ace hardware stores have carried craftsman for a while now. But they wont warranty any craftsman tool. You have to have proof you bought it from them. Hopefully lowes isnt that way. I do still have a hand full of there ratchets but all of them are broken
