    cornwell

    Anybody like Craftsman tools and tool boxes? They cost less than half and have a lifetime warrenty.

    You don't need to finance them like the off the truck brands.

    Is it an ego thing to own a $5000 toolbox when a $1000 box will hold the same number of tools?

    Will Craftsman tools even go into a Snap On tool box?

    I've never been a craftsman tool buyer . When I turned wrences for a living I bought mostly Mac. I also bought Snap On, Matco and some SK. Mac guy quit, Matco guy quit, the only one left is the Snap On man. I do like most of the Snap On tools, but do not like their wrenches. They're to thin. I don't like their cheap Blue Point impact wrenches though. You can buy an IR from Lowes for the same $ and it's a better impact.

    In the last few years I have bought some Craftsman stuff and it's ok for the race trailer and I do like their professional wrenches.

    craftsman

    I recently brought a broken ratchet into a sears store and the guy behind the counter handed a ratchet "rebuilding kit" I asked him if he was serious.He said YES, I asked him about the lifetime warranty and he said if the kit does not fix it bring it back and they would replace it. What a shame !!!!! I remember when sears cared about customers !

    I've been getting Kobalt tools lately and I like the way they look and feel and they have a lifetime warranty. Snap On and Mac are like the Aarons rentals of tools. You pay alot more because they finance.
