Craftsman tools no longer good for life
Just got off chat with Vinny at Lowes regarding a broken 1/4" ratchet. Although Lowes deals in Craftsman they only warranty the products for 90 days! Also note that craftsman is now made off shore. Sad to say but Harbor Freight is better and cheaper!

  • I have a lot of Craftsman. Guess our lifetime warranties are now junk. I have had good lick with SnapOn wrenches though. The thing with the digi-click wrenches is that they can not be stored with load on them, and they are succeptible to temperature swings.

  • Oh the true death of another american product. I worked as a 2 shift quality inspector at Western Forge producing Craftsman hand tools when I was going to school. Each month I would go out and buy a set of screwdrivers, torque wrenches, chisels, and wrenches from every manufacturer out there (Snap on, Montgomery Wards, Matco, about 10 in all) I would then test them to destruction in several testers we had. Craftsman stood head and shoulders above all in Screwdrivers, torque wrenches, and wrenches- tie or a rough second in chisels and punches. Most screwdrivers could not be broken by twisting by any human being. The best torque wrenches were the ones with a beam - when the long indicator rod got bent - bend it back to zero and the wrench would always read within a half percent. Not so with the set to click type from everyone else. Fun job and then I had great pride in Craftsman.
