Re: Craftsman tools to get new owners?
I made a lot of money using Craftsman tools. I started my first real Technician job in 1996 at an MB Dealer. the other guys laughed at me, but the Big Three cost 2 1/2 the price of a Craftsman. I did in fact buy many Snap on, Mac, Matco tools along the way but my Craftsman tools held up well. The Quality of the Big three is measurably better, but as a trainee, starting out I had to buy what I could afford. I have been out of the Service game for awhile but I still play in my garage a bit.
If my tools get lost, or broken and crapsman goes completely belly up, I guess I will have to go to the big three or kobalt. And yes, I hit the swap meets, garage sales and auctions for "Good" tools
