Craftsman

I know most of us on here use our tools quite a bit. I've always bought craftsman. I went down to sears the other day and I had a hell of a time finding anything made in the USA. Craftsman has always been American made. We cant keep buying Chinese made junk just to save a few dollars. When is enough going to be enough? Does this make anyone else mad or am I the only one?

Snap on makes professional tools and I'm not a professional But I guess they are my only option now.

I always look for American products which is why Craftsman is killing me right now. I cant get a comparable American made product now.

On a side note I didn't realize there was an off topic section so this should probably get moved

Your so right bud even the Craftsman pro is Chinese. I try to buy quality built tools and stay American made but unless your buying off a tool truck ie Snapon, Mac, Or Matco around here it's probably going to be Chinese

Isn't globalization wonderful. It's sure as hell great for some countries, but not the U.S.

I have always used Craftsman and have never had a complaint! Problem with Snap on and Matco, or Mac, you have to track down a truck to replace a broken tool! It's a paint in the royal ASSSSS!

I agree it is extremely difficult if not impossible to find much made in USA.

I haven't seen them mentioned here but you might check out Wilde Tool, they are made in Hiawatha, KS and have a lifetime guarantee and online ordering.
