well craftsman tools might not be what they used to, I agree
but it used to be nice having a sear's store to go and get tools at, don't have any left near me, closest is about 70 miles away or more now
and other stores like Lowe's or home depot, SUCK with the selection they have and there prices!
Snap on tools might be great, but past my budget for what they are, there OVER priced
Craftsman might be lesser quality, but they can be had normally cheap if bough right!
I have both old sets and new sets, they work OK 99% of the time, they don't rust as fact as some other cheap one's do, so there coating is still decent LOL
