We received a secret tip that on Nov 11th, starting at 12:01am, Sears will be discounting the Craftsman Hammerhead Auto Hammer to $90, which reflects a savings of $10. The promotion will last all day or until 500 units are sold, whichever comes first. Craftsman Hammerhead Auto Hammer via Sears Personal note: This tool may […]
Update: Since writing this post, we have published a hands-on review of Ryobi’s Auto Hammer – click here to check it out. At first glance, Ryobi’s 12V ONE+ Auto Hammer closely resembles Craftsman’s 12V NEXTEC Lithium-ion powered Hammerhead Auto Hammer. Well, looking at the specs, the two cordless hammers are far more similar than they are different […]
Please excuse the tone of this post as I am both excited and horrified. There I was, minding my own business browsing the tool categories at Amazon, when I came across Craftsman tools offered for sale. First Ridgid tools are picked up and added to their product catalog, now Craftsman? Craftsman tools being offered for sale by 3rd parties […]
The new Sears/Craftsman 2009 Holiday Tool Catalog is OUT!!! Because last year’s holiday tool catalog was so intensely satisfying, I have been waiting weeks for this year’s catalog to be published. Don’t worry, I will spare you the obsessive details, at least for now. The new catalog does two things: 1) it highlights a few new products, […]
I suppose this was to be expected. First, Sears recently launched the standalone Craftsman.com store. Then, they reinstated a rolling Craftsman Club promo period – did you notice that the past few promos were 4-5 weeks long each? Well, now they’ve launched a new rewards program where purchases earn you points that can be redeemed […]
Sears’ Craftsman brand has launched its own stand-alone online store!! Perhaps this is the beginning of an autonomous Craftsman that I have been dreaming about for years? Here are my observations thus far: The Craftsman store seems to be based off of Sears’ shopping engine The Craftsman store only offers for sale Craftsman products (duh) […]
A television commercial promoting the Craftsman Nextec Auto-Hammer has aired recently – no doubt targeting Father’s Day gift shoppers, so we’ve decided to revisit it. Although it may still seem a bit gimmicky, the Auto-Hammer is innovative enough that it deserves the attention.
We are not quite sure why, but over at Sears.com there is currently a double Craftsman Club discount on an unspecified selection of Craftsman wrenches. For the time being (until perhaps an error is corrected) select non-ratcheting wrench sets are being discounted by 36%!! The double discount has been observed on the following products – please […]
Craftsman’s 8pc Reversible Ratcheting Wrench sets are currently at a killer price – $68 each. These sets are normally $100 each ($80 when on sale), so $68 is a pretty hot deal. This is how you get the sets for $68 each. Craftsman 8pc Metric Reversible Ratcheting Wrench Set Craftsman 8pc SAE Reversible Ratcheting Wrench Set […]
The Consumerist recently ran a string of posts discussing the troubles one person had in trying to exchanged rounded Craftsman sockets. Some of the replacement-denial excuses given by Sears associates conflicted with previously stated official policies, and one even seems to have been outright fabricated. Brian, a lifelong Craftsman user, unsuccessfully tried to exchange nine rounded […]
For a limited time, Sears is offering a Craftsman auto-ranging multimeter for $20, after a $10 discount. If you take a closer look, you will notice that this model is identical to the Extech MiniTech MN26 – an excellent meter that normally sells for $40.
Craftsman released its new 12V NEXTEC series of compact power tools before the winter holidays, and performance reviews are starting to roll in. One of the more innovative tools of the Nextec series is Craftsman’s new Hammerhead Auto Hammer. The Auto Hammer’s compact size makes it well suited for areas too tight to swing a traditional hammer, as […]
Sears is holding a Buy One Get One Free sale on Craftsman’s hydraulic stools, which means you get two for $79.99. The promotion is valid all week until February 7th, and the stools are available for in-store pickup or home delivery. Because the shipping fee for two stools is $14.50, we recommend the free in-store […]
This Craftsman portable vacuum seems to be a pretty good buy, especially at 50% off. The vacuum comes with a 600 watt motor, crevice attachment, dusting brush, and a filter. It also comes with a relatively long 14′ cord that should provide enough reach to handle most cleanup tasks with ease. There are only a handful of reviews on Sears’ site, all posted within […]
These hybrid micrometers are somewhat of a cross between standard vernier micrometers and those with electronic readouts, and offer quick measurements at a relatively low price. Although the “digital” claim is quite literally true, in today’s age, “digital” implies an electronic readout. While we’re not comfortable still seeing these described as “digital” micrometers, such a description is still common practice […]
