Craftsman Tools Latest Ploy
I have a bunch of Sears Craftsman tools. About a month and half ago I replaced a screwdriver which had broken. (Separate bad experience which will not be covered here.) The tool I turned in had the name "Craftsman" molded right into its plastic handle so there was no question as to who made the tool.
The new screw driver which I was given as a replacemet was one of Sear's "newer" models in which the name "Craftsman" is just painted onto the handle. I have used the screw driver and the painted name is just about completely worn off. There is now no way to prove that the screwdriver was a Sears Craftsman tool! Since it doesn't have the Craftsman name, Sears is no longer obgligated to replace it. Really sneaky way to get around the lifetime guarentee.
Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electrically Challenged really SUCKS!!
Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
