craftsman tools

Hey outlaws, not sure what is up with craftsman tools these past few months ?, but sears seems to have woke the heck up, and decided to start making and selling their craftsman hand tools again...MADE IN USA STAMPED ON THEM, AND ON THE PACKAGE !!. only thing now that worries me ?, is I read sears is closing down a crap load of their stores, and selling off the craftsman tool name ?..hmmm.what is up with this ?, any one else notice this ???. I say this, because I bought a chisel and punch set ( well..my sister bought it for me after I eye-balled the set in the store before Christmas ) and it had '' made in usa '' stamped on every one of them in the set !. anywayyyyyyyy..I had a few tools I needed to buy, a grabber tool, 24'' reach claw-like thing ( handy tool ! ), bought 2 tanks of map gas, a 3 piece pry bar craftsman set, and a craftsman pick set, all had '' made in usa '' on them !, wow..craftsman woke the heck up, and seen everyone was going to harbor freight to buy the same china tool for less ?. soooo..i guess I am back to buying craftsman hand tools again, AS LONG AS THEY ARE MADE IN USA !!!..LOL. I will say, the kobalt mechanic set I bought from lowes awhile back, has been a nice little set, but this was because craftsman had their head up their azz ?..and was making and selling their hand tools made in china ?!!..lol.

Craftsman was sold to Stanley/Black and Decker for $900 million. Stanley makes good quality consumer tools and I believe they also own Mac tools.

Mac tools wasn't part of the deal, I'm just saying I think Stanley already owned Mac tools as well.
