    That is a sad day. When I went to school back in 1975, I decided to get my Airframe & PowerPoint Mechanics License. I got a pretty full set of tools back then, supplemented for 30 years after. I have been using them for everything, but they were always my prized possessions.

    Doing good is like picking fresh blackberries - if it doesn't sting a little sometimes, perhaps you're doing something wrong.

    End of an era, and another sad chapter in the decline of the once-mighty Sears.

    What I didn't know before I read the link -- I didn't realize that Stanley had absorbed Black & Decker. Explains a few things.

    I wonder what happens to the lifetime warranty now. I have a large roll-about toolbox filled with Craftsman stuff.

    Over the past several years , I bought a couple of their socket sets and combination wrench sets for my garage at home. The quality just isn't what it used to be.

    I think the wheels started to fall off after they bought K-Mart.

    Is Sears still based in Chicago(i.e. "the Sears Tower'') or have they farmed themselves out to Mexico and China and watered themselves down? .... that would explain the bulk of their decision making!
    Why,driving into a brick wall at 60 miles per hour, would I expect it not to hurt! :roll:

    If memory serves, it was the other way around. And yes, that was the start down the slippery slope.
