    CRAFTSMAN WARRANTY I stopped by the local sears the Other day to inquire on warranty issues that have been rumored as of late (not just here but all my buddies also) the Department manager told me that Warranty has not changed for MOST of there hand tools it's still a 1for1 swap He said what has Changed is Claw hammers and Tape measures are now longer covered In fact he said they Would no longer sell Claw hammers . so for all you guys thinking your craftsmen tools are no longer covered that rumor is false

    Could be. I asked about 3 weeks ago when I had to buy one. The older ones may still be lifetime.

    Tis true--most of the wooden hammers are not lifetime (i actually have to give you your money back and you can buy whateveh hammer you want), the red tape measures (only the spring, lock and tip are covered) anything to do with the tape itself it will not be covered. older torque wrenches will be covered but will be replaced but with a 1 year wrench.

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    I took back my old framing hammer yesterday after the money back they gave me a nice new Vaughn Cali Framer for $1.79. Should last me forever since I no longer frame for a living...
