The "Craftsman" name is now owned by Stanley/Black&Decker. Take that for what it's worth.

I heard that Amazon may buy a bunch of the abandoned Sears locations and expand their Whole Foods grocery store network.
I have tools fro just about every manufacturer. Some of the Harbor freight tools are quite good. Gear Wrench makes junk imo.

That might turn out to be a good thing. Time will tell.

I purchased a 1/2 inch drive battery powered impact tool from Sear. It is a Craftsman with the 4 amp C3 battery. Everyone that uses this tool loves it. It is fast and quiet and even has LEDs around the barrel that aid in locating the bolt. My son had a tire blow on I 24 on Christmas eve. You guessed it, on the road side in the rear. I came out with that and my sockets and parked my truck to shield him from traffic. He was totally amazed by its speed and ease of use. Seems to run a long time on the battery too. I think max torque is like 250lb/ft. That Sears tool is definitely a winner. Another son and I used it to remove a stuck O2 sensor. Boom it was loose. Lawn mower blades, Poof right off. Never thought I would get so much use out of it. I have always been an air tool guy.


Don't waste your time on a slipshod repair.

You would think there's a market somewhere there (Amazon??), but I guess that's why I don't run a retail empire...

Taiwanese made tools are usually very good and affordable.

That’s old school thinking. Better smell the coffee! China is moving ahead fast!

Sears management <> good business decisions for the workers or customers. At Sears, good business is defined at extracting wealth for Eddie Lambert. The rest of you can get trickled down upon.

The shriveled carcass will be dumped soon.

Stanley Black and Decker own the Craftsman brand now and they have for some time. They also make Porter Cable, Irwin, DeWalt and a few others.

Sears died a long time ago.

Both those locations have been remodeled and have been operating as an Amazon distribution center for a while now.
