send me your junk snap on I used to have alot of Crapsman but not so much any more. still alot of flat wrenches but not many sockets/ screwdrivers/ between the chrome peel, (still used them til something worse happened to them) cracked sockets, and screwdrivers that wouldn't grip (especially Phillips) then to grab a Snap on and get them right out/ then the fact that I spent 13+ working at a Sears Auto Center, much as a 2nd job and then would wind up spending most of what I made at Sears shopping right there within the store, to be fired the way I was back in 2001, for the reason that I was, I have not spent a dime at any Sears since.
I treat Crapsman tools like the garbage that they have become. I do buy them at auctions and flea markets, garage sales etc-- the older stuff that was still at least decently made--- but I have not spent a penny at a Sears store since Christmas 2001 when I lost my job there. and won't. No I won't get into the reason why I no longer work there but that job remains the only one that I was fired from.
They break? I chuck em in the trash. I went to a Sears to try and exchange some broken stuff about 5 years ago for the 1st time since I lost that job and the tools I got were nowhere near equivalent to what I had brought in, all of which were at least 20 years old at the time. Alot of the sockets I was told that I am "S.O.L." because they don't have any more, Other tools they had to order and said they'd send me those straight to my house, I got about half of what I brought in, actually replaced.
And the difference in quality between 5 year old Crapsman and 20+ yo Crapsman is huge!!!! They used to be proud of their stuff, and it was all USA made, now much comes from China. and besides my feelings for the company after losing my job, I won't willingly or knowingly buy Chinese made tools from anyone.
