SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Just die already, Sears.


Actually, Sears in is seriously deep ca-ca in regards to Craftsman. A decade or so ago, Sears bought Orchard Supply Hardware and started stocking it with Craftsman tools in addition to brand names. I just found out from a friend that still works at Sears that Orchard just bought themselves *back* and are now no longer a part of the Sears family. Also, Sears has removed he hardware department out of a lot of stores, meaning the only place to go buy Craftsman tools is now K-Mart.

This is my multiple head tool... and I love it, best tool ever, I've never used a tool as much as this one, and got lucky and got a second for a spare when I found it on liquidation a few months later, missing some parts like the bag and the smaller accessories, but important parts like the handle and the main attachments were all there, for less than half the price.




/guess that makes me his nemesis?

Sybarite: His super powers come in the form of a modular power tool with nine interchangeable attachments

And you thought Aquaman had lame powers.


I would think twice about mocking Aquaman.

As much as I hate going to Home Depot, Husky's "good" hand tools are U.S. Made, guaranteed unconditionally for life, and I think (I could be wrong) that they are made by whoever USED to make Craftsman hand tools. Also, if you bring it a broken Craftsman hand tool, they'll honour the lifetime guarantee and give you the equal in the Husky brand. Home Depot seems to carry two lines of Husky hand tools, though - a low end Chinese line that doesn't have the lifetime guarantee, and is of rather poor quality, but is very cheap, and a higher end line that is comparable to what my older Craftsman stuff is in quality and price, and does have the guarantee.

Sears Craftsman? Why not the Binford Tool Man?

The Sears Craftsman will be proud to rescue you Ma'am. He can rescue you between 12-6 pm on Thursday.

Speaking of the guaranteed for life thing. If you have the time, you can go around to pawn shops and buy any broken or worn out Snapon, Craftsmen or other lifetime guaranteed tools for next to nothing. Then you can trade them in for brand new tools. My BIL does that and sells the new tools. At any one time he usually has thousands of dollars worth of high quality tools in his truck.

akula: Husky or Kobalt branded tool.


Neat, thanks for the info. It does look like Husky is the old craftsman designs which was Danaher, but now Apex tools, or something, I lost track somewhere of all that stuff. Hell the handle on one Husky MUSA ratchet looks exactly like on my prized snap-on. Now to hunt for a second elusive slim long handled ratchet...

FirstNationalBastard: Dog Welder: It's not too difficult to get the Hitman back catalog at this point. Surprisingly, NuDC actually did something right and finished releasing the entire series in TPB.

Of course, they forgot the Resurrection Man crossover issues. But after stalling out the trades for a decade and being assholes and threatening to never complete them if a certain online muckraker didn't shut up about them, we should all feel lucky the entire series is out in trade.


So I don't know this story...someone care to elaborate?
