    I'd take it back. Sears has always stood behind their product. They have never failed me. Once, I didn't have the receipt, and they replaced the item. Which makes sense. Their tools have a lifetime warranty. Who knows where the receipt is from twenty years ago.

    I'd take it back if it's in nice shape, just tell them you bought it awhile back and the rest of the story. I think power tools only have a 1 year warrenty on them if I remember right, just handtools are liftime but worst case scenerio is they don't exchange it.

    Only their hand tools.

    This is why I do not buy Craftsman power tools. They're crap in my opinion.

    yer screwed.... Craftsman makes alright powertools if ou buy the budget line.

    if you need a new circular saw get a double sealed bearng model by Skill. they rock. i have that i use on metal and brick with no problems.

    You are for sure screwed. Unless it's a handtool with a lifetime warranty you need a receipt. NO receipt you may as well stay home and make a yard ornament out of it. Power tools have a 1yr warranty but like I said, you need the receipt. I've sent many unhappy people home without one when I worked there.

    i agree, i think when it comes to power tools makita and skil have it going on, i have used all three brands now and most ppl around here all have skil brand or makita brand tools, never heard of or seen anything bad ever happen with them, they seem to last forever,


    thanks /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
