    I do not like sears anymore either. None of their tools are made in USA. I also had an issue with a tv that I bought from them. Lets just say the customer service sucked.

    Ever since the K-Mart dude got in control they were all about their bottom line and could care less about their customers and employees. I'm really surprised the retail side hasn't went under yet.

    Lifetime warranty is nice from Sears on the tools, thats the biggest reason to buy there. If the tool breaks, you walk in and get a new one or its gets ordered.

    We're not talking about TV's here, we're talking about tools.

    I'm going to try to put my personal feelings aside about them and say this:
    I have major concerns with the longevity of the company, hence a lifetime warranty would mean diddly squat if they shut the doors.

    What do you own stock in sears? Lol. Remember those crappy yellow tape measures with the replaceable blade? That's when I stopped buying from sears. Also when you bring In a broken ratchet they give you a rebuild kit or a rebuilt ratchet not a new one off the shelf.

    Just got back from Sears and got a brand new 5/8" ratchet wrench to replace my broken one, the replacement was made in USA and free due to the lifetime warranty.

    Also, the 3 pullers I put links to from Sears were on the shelf and are made in the USA.. They also had 2 different posi Lock pullers in stock, which were also made in the USA.

    I'm with Turbo. Sears is still a GREAT place to get good quality, American made tools, at reasonable prices, with lifetime warranties. I just purchased 2 LED inspection mirrors and a small level that were USA, and there is all sorts of neat tools there in multiple categories. I am sadened by seeing some of the mechanics tools with a China stamp on them, but I would say 95% of the stuff in my local store was USA. Maybe Sears can bring back the other 5.

    I have a Craftsman table saw my father gave me that is 20 plus years old, with lots of hours, still runs great.

    I will throw in my $.02 on Sears and say that I pretty much feel the same way as AiResearch and y7turbo. They're still one of the first places I go when I need something, and I don't buy unless it's made here. I don't walk out empty handed very often. I think people that preach about the superiority of Snap-On, MAC, Matco, Cornwell, etc. are just tool snobs.

    I still like and buy from sears. That being said the list of tools I would get from them has shortened tremendously in the last 20 years.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    Tech Rob mentioned Snap-On and the like.

    I have few of their pieces that were handed down.. Very nice and functional. I can't afford them. More for auto mechanics that use those types of tools every day. Most of those poor guys have large debt to the tool truck.

    For us it's mostly an adjustable wrench, which works better for refrigeration anyway.

    Craftsman has very rarely let me down, and if that 1/2 inch ratchet did break, I had another ready to go, because they are affordable and I can return it for free replacement no questions asked.
