Craftsman made what i call very good general purpose tools. and i have many of them and they have served me well over the years. but in my line of work, i use Snap-On, Mac and Matco tools. they make tools for people who use their tools day in and day out, have to use their tools to make a living, and cheap ill fitting tools just won't cut it. my tools are used and abused daily. plus the tool trucks come to the jobsite, and Sears doesn't!

Don't judge me! :-P
I love my harbor freight pro hand tools, they have a life time warranty!

Well I meant top dollar as in what they used to charge for the made in the USA craftsman and I hate to break the news pal but tool around online < pun intended > Not ALL snap-on are made in the USA anymore either.

No offense taken. It is the only Coleman product I could find that was US made.
