Thread: Sale on Craftsman tool and tool boxes.

  1. #1

    Default Sale on Craftsman tool and tool boxes.

    Looks like Sears is having a big sale. I am no longer a fan of Craftsman tools but if you are they are having a big sale on tools and tool boxes.

    Are the tools still made in USA?

    These look interesting...

    No a lot of it comes from China now, but some is still USA made I think.

    Very few. Harbor Freight quality has exceeded Craftsman in many areas. If you want a high end tool at a great price, go with Kobalt from Lowe's. They were originally made by Snap On's parent company. The few tools I have that are Kobalt are quite nice.

    I have a few Kobalt tools, and they are nice. Didn't know about the Snap-On connection.

    Kobalt has lifetime warranty too, correct?

    Kobalt Williams USA tools are long gone (like 10 years or more). They've been Taiwan, then China COO for years and no better than HF at half the price. In fact, many claim HF now exceeds Kobalt for sockets/ratchets at much better pricing. Kobalt warranty is suspect, especially now that they've announced they're picking up the Craftsman death train - check complaints on other forums.

    I have a bunch of basically unused Kobalt ratchets (Taiwan) and breaker bars (Williams USA) in a box somewhere I'd sell cheap.

    I have never used those, I tend to run the other way when I see universal tool. I really like my gearwrech flex head ratcheting wrenches, but a lot of them are made in China now the ones I have were made in Taiwan.

    This site has the best prices on Williams tools I have found. They are a mix of older snap-on desings, rebranded blue-point (snap-on Tawian made brand) and some of their own tools.

    This site has good prices on Kobalt tools if they have what you are looking for. They still have some USA Kobalt tools. I have only brought from them once, I got what I expected and was happy (brought from their E-bay site)

    The site looks like it is unsecured. No s after http

    Edit,

    I am fine with Taiwan made tools. I still shy away from Chain made tools but they are getting much better.
